Kadokawa Games began streaming the fourth trailer for its God Wars Future Past (God Wars - Toki o Koete) PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game on Friday. The video highlights the characters from the nation of Fuji, including main character Kaguya.

The game is now slated for release in Japan on April 13. The game was delayed from its original February 23 release date to spring. NIS America will release the game on March 28 in North America, and March 31 in Europe. The game will get both physical and digital releases.

NIS America describes the game:

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.

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. Enka singer Fuyumi Sakamoto is singing the theme song "Toki o Koete."
