Kadokawa Games has announced that God Wars: The Complete Legend will launch for PC via Steam this June. You can find the store page here.
The original version of the game - God Wars: Future Past - originally released in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game then received a re-release for Nintendo Switch in 2018 - titled God Wars: The Complete Legend - which came bundled with DLC, new story content, and post-launch updates. (This new content was also offered for the PlayStation versions as DLC).
The Steam re-re-release of the game includes a few more small updates. Characters can be ordered in a formation queue on the battle preparations screen, and then the order of these characters can be used to automatically place units on the map at the start of a battle. Kadokawa states that this new formation function will also be offered as a patch to the previous versions of the game. The PC version will also include keyboard and mouse support.
