God Wars Future Past Graces PS4 and PS Vita on March 28

Judith Pi's Avatar Posted by Associate Product Marketing Manager, NIS America

Hi there, doods! This is Judith from NIS America, and I’m here to announce that strategy RPG God Wars Future Past will arrive in the West on March 28 for PS4 and PS Vita as a physical and digital release!

God Wars Future Past takes place in an ancient era of Japanese mythology shrouded in mystery. Boasting an impressive musical score, breathtaking story elements, and unforgettable character designs, God Wars is a tale that will resonate with all gamers who enjoy the thrill of a classic strategy RPG!

Like most legends, the game begins with a land that once brimmed with harmony between humans and nature. But, because humans soon discovered the efficiencies of technology, nature fell victim to neglect and destruction. For this reason, the Myriad Gods that watched over the land of Mizuho began to wreak havoc on the humans, and to quell this instability, the queen sacrifices her second daughter, Sakuya, in hopes of appeasing the gods. Moreover, she confines her youngest daughter, Kaguya, as a backup sacrifice and then vanishes.

After 13 long years, Kaguya escapes her confinement with her childhood friend, Kintaro, and the two begin their journey to discover the reasons behind Tsukuyomi’s decisions.

Boasting a traditional take on tactical RPG gameplay, God Wars features an intuitive turn-based battle system that allows players to consider all facets of strategy to outmaneuver and defeat the enemies. Each unit has a Unique Job, and in addition to that, a Main Job (which decides the weapons the unit can equip) and a Sub Job (which grants units additional skills). For instance, in the below screenshot, we see that Ookuninushi is not only a Samurai, but is also a Priest. In addition, his Unique Job is a War God, something that no other unit in the game shares with him!

In addition to unique job classes for all of your characters, God Wars Future Past also allows players to visit a shrine before battles to boost units’ abilities and powers. By making offerings to the gods, you will receive stat bonuses in battle, which will surely lead to victory!

You can preorder the game from our online store. We hope you’re looking forward to launch day, dood!

The story sounds really interesting. I’m assuming Tsukiyomi is the Queen.

Nice to finally have a date, I’ll be pre-ordering soon. Not sure if I want to go for that nice collector’s edition or not.

    Since I am a collector myself, I’d go for the limited edition, since once they sell out, they’re gone! Thanks for your support, dood! :)

Wow 3 New Vita Games Posted Today Maybe SONY Gave Up To Soon. Maybe all they needed to do is make the 32GB Memory Card $30 Instead of $80!

    Totally agree that’s why I got a DS, but the Vita is awesome.

The look of this game reminds me of Jeanne D’Arc, one of my favourite PSP games. Looking forward to playing!

How did I never heard of this game before; we’re in a dire need of a great strategy RPG.

Thank you for putting this on my radar! Finally another reason to fire up my Vita again.

Thanks for still supporting the vita. This game looks really fun. It looks like a nice mixture of Disgaea and Oreshika. I’ll definitely check out some gameplay videos on YouTube later.

Can’t wait for God Wars on Vita. Thanks NISA.

Also I keep seeing people on the internet say the Vita isn’t sold in the U.S anymore. Try the largest online retailer in the world, Amazon. They have them brand new. You can import the different colors too for the same price.
