posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kadokawa Games announced in its "Kadokawa Games Media Briefing 2015 Autumn" press briefing on Tuesday that it is developing a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game titled God Wars ~Toki wo Koete~ (God Wars ~Beyond Time~), slated for worldwide release in 2016. Kadokawa Games is streaming the game's English-subtitled debut trailer, narrated by Shirou Sano.
Kadokawa Games describes the game:
A history of Gods that no one knows.
A tactical RPG that depicts the conflict and surge of young heroes in ancient Japan.
An adventure that merges the world of Kojiki, Japan's oldest history book, and the fairy-tales of Japanese folklore.
The amazing saga of mighty heroes who fought bravely against their fate and the wrath of the Gods, has now been revealed.
The game is set in the land of Mizuho, and will center on the princes and princesses of three countries:
Prince Ōkuninushi of Izumo-no-Kuni
Prince Momotarō of Hyūga-no-Kuni
The game's aesthetic will mix anime-inspired character designs and monster designs influenced by classical Japanese Yamato-e paintings:
Yoshimi Yasuda, the former head of Tecmo and current head of Kadokawa Games, is conceiving the story, directing the game, and writing the scenario. LovePlus designer Tarō Minoboshi is designing the characters, while Sawaki Takeyasu (Devil May Cry, Steel Battalion, Ōkami, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron) is designing the monsters.
