Another Japanese title’s release is being pushed back to the summer. This time it’s Kadokawa Games’ strategy role playing game God Wars: Future Past. The game was slated to release on April 13th in Japan but will now become available on June 22nd.
This is the second push back for the release of God Wars: Future Past. Originally the game was expected to launch on February 23rd but in December Kadokawa Games announced that it wouldn’t be ready until early 2017. The reason for the delay then was to address feedback from a demo and make improvements.
A new release date of April 13th (in Japan, it was set for late March in North America and Europe) was then declared but it seems that the game is still not ready for a spring launch. Citing the same reasons as before, the SRPG’s launch is being pushed back until the summer of 2017 in order to make improvements to the game after feedback for a demo called “The Beginning Trials”,that let players experience the beginning of the game, highlighted issues that needed to be addressed before releasing the project.
God Wars: Future Past is based on Japanese legends following the land of Mizuho and the interactions between gods and men within it. It features 14 customizable player characters with 30 different classes to choose from and over 400 skills and 250 pieces of equipment to use. The artwork for the game is inspired by traditional Japanese ink paintings and wood carvings giving it a unique and fantastical feel.
God Wars: Future Past is now planned to launch on June 22, 2017 after this most recent delay on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan. A North American release was scheduled for March 28th and March 31st in Europe by NISA however, a recent announcement has confirmed that westerners will be getting a delayed release as well. The game will now be available June 16th in Europe and June 20th in North America.
