God Wars: Future Past to Receive a Western Release on PS4 & PS Vita Next Year


Publisher NIS America have announced that the tactical RPG God Wars: Future Past will receive a western release onto the PS4 and PS Vita early next year.

Developed by Kadokawa Games, God Wars Future Past is a tactical RPG that explores the untold history of Japan through folklore and strategic combat and as such players will experience the traditional stories of Japan’s origin through the lens of three warring nations.


It sounds like an interesting addition to NIS America’s steadily growing publisher catalogue and although specific details on when the game will be released (other than Q1 2017) we do know that it will be released onto the PS4 and PS Vita as both a physical product and digital download.

Synopsis: A long time ago, there was a beautiful land made up of three nations: Fuji, Izumo, and Hyuga. This land was called Mizuho. The people of Mizuho disliked conflict, honored their ancestral spirits, and lived in harmony with nature. However, over time, they began cultivating crops, forging and using metal, fighting wars, destroying nature, and neglecting to honor their ancestral spirits.

In the meantime, various locations in Mizuho suffered from natural disasters like flooding, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. In order to stop a destructive eruption, the Queen of Mizuho, Tsukuyomi, sacrificed her beloved daughter Sakuya to the mountain, confined her other daughter Kaguya within a bamboo seal in case of future disasters, and then disappeared. 13 years later, Princess Kaguya has grown into a beautiful woman and her childhood friend, Kintaro, saves her during a riot. She rises against her “fate to be a sacrifice,” and in order to follow her own path, they both escape from Fuji and journey across Mizuho to discover the truth behind Tsukuyomi’s decision.

God Wars: Future Past will be released during Q1 2017 with further details to be confirmed in the coming months; for the time being at least it will be released as a physical product and digital download within the UK, Europe and America for the PS4 & PS Vita.
