The Japanese game developers Nippon Ichi Software (NIS) has released the first trailer for their RPG God and the Destiny Revolution Paradox (Kamisama to Unmei Kakumei no Paradox), featuring previews of the actual gameplay. The game was originally going to be released on 20 December, but has been delayed until 24 January 2013.
The story follows a high school student named Renya who suddenly becomes a god; along with five angels, he grants wishes and changes people’s fates.
The game will be available on PlayStation 3 as the developer’s 20th anniversary commemorative title. NIS previously created the Disgaea role-playing game series. On this new project, the developers have hired some familiar outside help; The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya light novel illustrator Noizi Ito is the game’s character designer and Yousei Teikoku (The Future Diary, Katanagatari theme songs) is providing the game’s soundtrack and theme song.
The game will be available in a standard (¥7,140 = £56) and limited edition (¥9,240 = £73). The limited edition will include a Destiny Revolution Bible for New Gods booklet, two soundtrack CDs, and a first-edition box.
Sohei Niikawa, the CEO of NIS, has already announced that a television anime is in the works, but has yet to be green-lit.
