NIS America announced that they will be localizing the Kadokawa developed tactical RPG God Wars: Future Past for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in early 2017.
The game “explores the untold history of Japan through folklore and strategic combat” by showing Japan’s origins over three different stories. Each story puts the player in control of a different nation that is at war.
The publisher details further:
In the land of Mizuho, three nations – Fuji, Izumo, and Hyuga – are at war. Since ancient times, the people of Mizuho disliked conflict and had lived in harmony with nature – however, with time the people began cultivating crops, creating metal weapons, waging war, and neglect to honor their ancestral spirits. Following a string of natural disasters, the Queen of Mizuho, Tsukuyomi, sacrificed her daughter Sakuya, and then sealed her other daughter Kaguya away in case she was needed as a sacrifice to stop other disasters in the future. The story truly begins when Princess Kaguya is freed by her childhood friend Kintaro 13 years later. The two set off on a journey across Mizuho to learn the truth behind Queen Tsukuyomi’s actions.
