Development

When early footage of the game was released, the title was nicknamed Goddess of War due to the similarities with Sony's God of War series.

References

  • The game is referenced in season 1, episode 18 of the TV series Heroes. The characters Micah and Niki Sanders are playing the game, even though it was not released yet when the episode aired.
  • In the game's third chapter, Kai's Mission, Kai needs to obtain a password for an armoury. When she traps the commander, she aims her bow at his crotch and says: "Maybe I'll hit your weak point for MASSIVE damage". That's a reference to Genji: Days of the Blade (see trivia section).
