Kadokawa Games shared shared new details on God Wars, its newly announced PlayStation 4 and PS Vita tactics RPG set in ancient Japan.
Introduced today are Tsukuyomi, Amaterasu, and Susanoo, the leaders of the nations of Fuji, Hyuuga, and Izumo, respectively. Last week, we met their children.
The press release also re-purposes old information from last week to provide new screenshots of the God Wars‘ battle system.
Get the information below.
■ Tactics RPG
God Wars uses an orthodox quarter view tactical battle system. This includes fighting on maps with elevation differences, setting specific jobs for characters, and an abundance of growth elements.
Players can select between 30 types of jobs, over 200 pieces of equipment, and over 600 skills to capture each stage. You can customize your party with jobs and skills of your choosing, and work over a strategy to defeat the enemy.
While there are skills that only specific jobs can learn, there are also character-exclusive skills, skills that target a vast range of enemies at once, skills that strike the enemy’s weak points, and so on. Utilize your skills in the best way possible according to the situation.
The queen of Fuji. Sakuya and Kaguya’s mother. She is a kind woman full of affection. 13 years ago, in order to quell the anger of the Gods, she offered her daughter Sakuya as a sacrifice to the crater of Fuji. She has since disappeared and entrusted the politics of the country to a man named Kitsune. Her whereabouts are unknown.
The queen of Hyuuga. Momotaro’s mother. She is the youngest of the rulers of the three countries. She is full of vitality and has a strong interest in expanding her territory.
The king of Izumo. Ohkuninushi’s father. An unrivaled warrior, he is a hero who made Izumo the strong nation it is today. After becoming a big country, he promotes nation-building rooted in technological strength rather than in military strength. Though he is gradually approaching old age, he is not recognized as someone who once held power.
God Wars is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2016.
