NIS is once again teaming up with Natural Doctrine developer Kadokawa Games. This time, the duo will be bringing a new tactical role-playing game to PS4 and PS Vita, God Wars Future Past. Scheduled to launch early next year, digitally and physically, their latest will follow a skewed version of Japanese history told through traditional origin stories. Fuji, Izumo, and Hyuga vie for control of the country, known then as Mizuho, as the once-imprisoned Princess Kaguya escapes her sacrificial fate to learn the truth about her past. During her quest, players will gain access to 14 customizable characters, over 30 classes, and 400-plus skills.

NIS has released a new trailer showcasing the Wii version of Rodea the Sky Soldier. It was announced last year that the first-print copies of the Wii U version will come bundled with a copy for Wii, but until now, most of the media released has been focused on the former with little on the latter. This gameplay video marks the debut of the localized last-gen version, which makes for one of the better bonus pack-ins in recent memory.
