NIS America began streaming an English-dubbed trailer for Kadokawa Games' God Wars Future Past (God Wars - Toki o Koete) PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game on Tuesday. The video previews some of the game's characters, including Kaguya, Kintaro, Kuma, Sakuya, Tsukuyomi, Hanasaka, Aome, Katsuragi, and Ookami.

The game is now slated for release in Japan on June 22, in Europe on June 16, and in North America on June 20. Kadokawa Games previously announced that the game was delayed in Japan from its original February 23 release date, and later announced an April 13 release date. 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."
