The Complete Legend (Nintendo Switch) is a re-release of last year's God Wars: Future Past (PlayStation 4 and Vita), featuring:

For those who own the English version of God Wars: Future Past on a PlayStation system, this expansion will be available as DLC when The Complete Legend launches this fall.
- New story content relating to a new character - Orihime -
exclusive to the Complete Legend release. [Note: See below update]

UPDATE: NIS America has informed us that they will be offering all the content of the re-release as DLC for PlayStation versions of the game, including content involving Orihime.
