Amazon leaks God of War sequel

After long rumors that a sequel to Sony's popular God of War series would be announced soon, Amazon has let the cat out of the bag with the title, prototype box art and first trailer of God of War: Ascension, a sequel for PlayStation 3.

All the existing information so far, including the first teaser trailer, was available at Amazon's product page for the game until it was pulled just hours ago. The game is unsurprisingly listed for the Sony PlayStation 3 system at a retail price of $59.99. The release date is set to December 31, 2013, which would be the placeholder date for "sometime in 2013," and even this could change if Sony is targeting a holiday 2012 release for the undoubtedly hot title.

A full transcript of the narration in the God of War trailer is below:

Many know the legend of Kratos, the mortal turned god who brought down the very walls of Olympus. But there was a time before Kratos became the monster known as the Ghost of Sparta. A time when something other than rage consumed him. A time when in spite of the madness that plagued him, Kratos would break his blood oath to an unjust god. A time when he would no longer be bound in blood.

Sounds like a prequel! We'll probably get full confirmation at E3 this year.

Looks cool. I love the God of War games. They're fun to play and have a pretty good story line that makes it interesting to follow.

The games are enjoyable (the story telling and gameplay are done excellently) but sometimes the gameplay gets to be too repetitive after a while.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out though.

This wasn't really leaked. us.playstation.com showed this in their games list since the 18th and states has a spring 2013 release and the video was at the same site (and YouTube) from PlaystationChannel since yesterday... godofwar.com is now updated as well.
