NIS America has announced that God Wars: Future Past has been delayed until June.
The PS4 and PS Vita title had been initially slated for release in Late March in both North America and Europe. But now in a statement NIS explained that there will be a couple of months delay in order to make improvements to the game to ensure it’s the best it can be.
This delay provides time for additional development and in-game balancing to ensure the best possible experience for gamers.
We understand that delays are not the most pleasant of announcements, but we want to ensure our fans experience the highest quality version of the game.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding in this matter. Thank you for your continuous support!
It will now be released on June 16th in Europe and June 20th in North America; the delay is also affecting Japan.
God Wars: Future Past is a RPG that combines Japanese Mythology with the ancient figure of Shaka. Expect plenty of cherry blossom, as well. In NIS’ own words:
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.
