GOD WARS Future Past explores the untold history of Japan through folklore and tactical combat. It tells traditional stories about the origins of Japan through the lens of three warring nations. 

GOD WARS Future Past is a tactical RPG that fuses stories from the oldest record of Japan’s history, the Kojiki book, with traditional Japanese tales. Explore the lives of heroes who made their mark by fighting against the fate set out before them.

Kadokawa Games and NIS America finally released the game the past week after an unfortunate delay,  used for additional development and in-game balancing to ensure the best possible experience for interested gamers and fans of the studio.

Originally, the upcoming strategy RPG was slated for March 28, 2017 (NA) and March 31, 2017 (EU). Now that the game has finally released we are working hard to give the game an honest and fair review. However, we wanted to give you a small sample of the game’s basic gameplay. Check out the first 20-ish minutes of the game  below and let us know what you think of the game.

About The Story:

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.
