Back in November last year, Kadokawa Games has announced a tactical RPG titled God Wars ~Toki wo Koete~ (God Wars ~Beyond Time~). Check out the debut trailer for the game below.
On the recent video stream held by Kadokawa Games, some of the people behind the creation of God Wars shared more details regarding the mythological and folklore origins of the game’s story. They are Yoshimi Yasuda (director/scenario writer), Shiro Sano (story writer), and Sawaki Takeyasu (monster designer). Check out the video below.
The following is the description of the game as described by Kadokawa Games:
A history of Gods that no one knows.
A tactical RPG that depicts the conflict and surge of young heroes in ancient Japan.
An adventure that merges the world of Kojiki, Japan’s oldest history book, and the fairy-tales of Japanese folklore.
The amazing saga of mighty heroes who fought bravely against their fate and the wrath of the Gods, has now been revealed.
The game takes place on the land of Mizuho, and centers on the young nobles of the three countries; Princess Kaguya, and her sister Sakuya of Fuji-no-Kuni, Prince Okuninushi of Izumi-no-Kuni, and Prince Momotaro of Hyuga-no-Kuni.

The monster designs are influenced by the classical Japanese paintings of Yamato-e.
