GOD WARS The Complete Legend was announced yesterday for the Nintendo Switch and will be released sometime in Fall of 2018 as both a digital and physical release. This is an updated version of GOD WARS Future Past which was originally released on the PS4 and PS Vita in June of 2017.
GOD WARS The Complete Legend is as tactical, turn-based RPG set in historical Japan and explores themes of Japanese legend. The story explores traditional stories of the origin of Japan and its people through the lens of three warring nations with a wealth of strategies players can employ across a vast variety of character classes and equipment.
GOD WARS The Complete Legend includes all of the content, DLC and updates from the original game along with a new character named Orihime. It also features a new dungeon called the Legend of Yomi that explores the story of Kaguya and boasts over 100 hours of gameplay! Frankly, that alone would justify the cost of double dipping for this one.
It sounds like the developers, Kadokawa Shouten and Kadokawa Corporation, have gone above and beyond in the creation of this port for the Switch. If you like turn-based tactical RPGs in the vein of Disgaea 5 or Final Fantasy Tactics or if you were a fan of the original GOD WARS, then this looks like a game to keep your eyes on.
Here is some extra information about the game.
About The Story
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. Thirteen 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.
