God Wars: Future Past graces the PS4 and PS Vita on 31st March

Strategy RPG gets physical and digital release on both platforms

Hi there! This is Judith from NIS America, and I’m here to announce that strategy RPG God Wars: Future Past will arrive in Europe on 31st March for the PlayStation 4 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, have 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!

We hope you’re looking forward to launch day, dood! You can preorder the game from our online store, and for more information, be sure to visit the official website!

Preordered a while ago (along with Danganronpa V3 and A Rose in the Twilight), can’t wait.

So much Vita goodness this year, actually surprised the PS Blog is highlighting it for a change. O_o

Maybe it’s the posters themselves that make the headlines together with the managers for the blog? ^^
Anyway yes, cool to see that the typical silence about the PSV didn’t happen this time :)

Woohoo! Ready and waiting but I have to ask, Cross save?
I’m way to busy to sit down in front of my TV so the majority of time I play on the Vita but then when I have time I always try to sit in front of the TV and just enjoy the music, yes I enjoy the music ^^

Good to see us getting a release in good time. Unlike with Trails of Cold Steel 2, where we were made to wait, unnecessarily in my opinion, 2 extra months.

Thanks for supporting vita

Is the PS Vita Limited Edition exclusive to the Official NISA Europe Store or there’s a chance it may become available for pre-order on Amazon?

Not my kind of game but looks great for fans of the genre. I’m more curious to know how many Vita games are coming out this year. Love my Vita and seeing new games for it even if they’re not ones I’d play myself it’s still all part of keeping this awesome lil machine kicking.
