God Wars Coming to Nintendo Switch in 2018

NIS America has revealed another port for the Nintendo Switch titled, God Wars: The Complete Legend. This will be an expanded version of the original game. The package will contain the base game and the Legend of Yomi expansion. It will be available both physically and digitally. The Legend of Yomi update will also be available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

God Wars is a tactical RPG originally released on the PS4 and PS Vita. It draws influence from ancient Japanese mythology and folktales. The following excerpt from NIS America details the basic concept of the game:

[God Wars] is part of Japanese mythology that no one knows. A tactical RPG that illustrates the conflicts between the young leaders of Japan.

[God Wars] is a tactical RPG that fuses Japan’s oldest historical record book, Kokiji, and an ancient figure everyone knows, Shaka, into a single adventure. It illustrates the lives of heroes who left their marks, fighting against nature, while balancing those two aspects on their shoulders.

Its initial launch was March 2017 for the PlayStation brand of systems. The game was met with reasonable praise, scoring a 74% on Metacritic.

This announcement comes at the backend of an NIS America press event. Many other ports for the Nintendo Switch were put on the spotlight, such as Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, SNK Heroines, Happy Birthdays, and The Longest Five Minutes. 

God Wars: The Complete Legend will release this fall for the Nintendo Switch. You can check out the English dubbed trailer above.
