Kadokawa Games has released the first information and screenshots of its newly announced God Wars: Future Past large-scale DLC, “Labyrinth of Yomi.”
Due out this winter in Japan, the downloadable content will add an “extra large” dungeon loaded with various elements, including 50 stages that exceeds the volume of the main story, super difficult stages with a recommended level of 70 or higher, a multi-ending story where the outcome changes depending on the player’s choices, Momotaro and his companions as playable characters, and more.
Get the details below.
■ A Total of 50 Stages! An “Extra Large” Dungeon That Exceeds the Volume of the Main Story
The setting of this downloadable content is the underground dungeon “Labyrinth of Yomi,” a place where the dead go to rest deep in the mountains of Izumo. In addition to 50 stages that exceed the volume of the main story, an “Average / Good / Excellent” evaluation system based on the amount of damage dealt and number of turns taken per map is also being prepared. This is downloadable content of overwhelming volume that requires no less than 100 hours to play through everything.

■ Recommended Level: 70 to 199! Powered-Up Bosses Await Kaguya and Company
In this downloadable content, the maximum level of characters and some skills have been unlocked. By training beyond the previous limit, you can significantly develop the characters that did not play a major role in the main story. Naturally, the strength of enemies are also in a different league. Bosses bestowed with the power of Yomi to become even more brutal will stop at nothing to attack Kaguya and company.

■ Hyuga Hero Momotaro and his Crew are Finally Playable
Momotaro, the first prince of Hyuga and Kaguya and Okuninushi’s rival, will be playable. Momotaro’s unique job, “Kijin (Fierce God),” is a vanguard job with skills that increase attack power to the extent that Impurity increases. Hit the boss with fierce attacks while taking in the attacks of enemies on the front line—this is the type of role the Kishi (Fierce God) job will play. Other than Momotaro, his companions Inu, Saru, and Kiji are also playable.

■ A Multi-Ending Story that Delves into the Heroes’ Pasts
In this downloadable content, Kaguya’s past is told along the way to Yomi, where Tsukuyomi and Susanoo lie at rest. The hidden feelings of the heroes little said in the main story will become clear, such as Kaguya and Kintaro’s encounter, Susanoo and Okuninushi’s parent-child conflict, and “a certain incident” where Momotaro comes to seek strength as a king. Furthermore, through the use of a multi-ending system, you can enjoy three types of endings that change based on the player’s choices and method of capture.

Other than “this winter,” a release date and price for “Labyrinth of Yomi” have yet to be announced. Currently, a release has only been confirmed for Japan.
God Wars: Future Past is available now worldwide for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.
