Ready for a new tactical RPG title? You want one in early 2017 for your PlayStation 4 and or your PlayStation Vita? If so, then good. NIS America will have you covered as they have announced that their upcoming title GOD WARS Future Past seeks to tell a story of an untold period in Japan through both folklore and even tactical combat situations. In this title, players will take on an experience unlike any other as they experience the traditional stories of Japans three warring nations.
The game will take focus on these nations dubbed: Fuji, Izumo, and Hyuga. The lands name? Mizuho. This was a land that desired to not see conflict within the lands, they honored their ancestral spirits, and they lived in harmony with the spirits around them. For Japan this time was peaceful, one that its denizens were happy with until natural disasters struck. From floods, to earthquakes, and finally volcano’s devastated their lands. In order to stop the eruptions, their queen, Tsukuyomi, sacrificed her beloved daughter Sakuya to the mountain, and it lead to her daughter Kaguya being confined to her room within a bamboo seal in case the time arose to make another sacrifice.
As this happened, her daughter would soon rise against her fate to be sacrificed with the help of her friend Kintaro, one that would help her escape Fuji and trek across the mystical lands of Mizuho. Their discoveries would lead them to find the truth behind all these occurrences as the game takes players deep into Japanese tradition. The game will feature a large pantheon as players meet the Myriad gods, customizes characters, tactics, and even set up their unique form of combat as each new trial awaits them.
The art style for players to enjoy will be inspired by traditional Japanese ink painting and wood carving arts. Along with this, fans will get to enjoy it all in GOD WARS when it launches in 2017. So stay tuned for more information as the launch of the game draws nearer.
