Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am 50% of the awesome people behind this website. I enjoy writing about my deep love for (J)RPG's, fighting games, and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and Battle Royale games. Absolutely love Sushi and Burgers.
NIS America has dropped some unfortunate news today. GOD WARS Future Past will be delayed. The game’s release on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita will be pushed back to June 20, 2017 in North America, June 16, 2017 in Europe and June 22, 2017 in Japan.
This delay provides Kadokawa Games with time 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). Why the game was delayed so close to its release might seem like a mystery, but we’ve learned trough the years that delaying a game isn’t as bad as releasing a half-assed piece of shit that isn’t close to a finished game.
The strategy RPG explores the untold history of Japan through folklore and tactical combat. It will tell traditional stories about the origins of Japan through the lens of three warring nations, and promises a “massive expanse” of tactical options for players to develop battle strategies, including a “myriad” of character classes and equipment.
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.
