PS Vita Exclusive Freedom Wars' Post-Apocalyptic Planet Is in a Right State

Posted by Sammy Barker

Escape plan

The global population problem in Freedom Wars’ harrowing interpretation of the future is so bad that people are imprisoned from the minute that they’re born. In order to reduce that undeserved sentence, the inmates are forced to fight monsters, with each victory lessening their time behind bars. However, after watching this cinematic trailer, we’re not sure why anyone would want to leave the sanctuary of the slammer.

The explosive video reveals some of the colossal beasts that now inhabit the planet, including a dozen or so flying things that have expressions more frightening than Roy Keane in a BBC interview. The game’s due out on 26th June in Japan, but this trailer hints at some kind of 17th April reveal. There’s still no word on a Western release, but a localisation seems more certain than the passing of time. Do you want to break free? Let us know in the comments section below.

Looks like I'm going to have to make a Twitter account just to show Shu how much I want this game.

Too short.

This game brings to mind Kid Icarus Uprising. When that game was revealed I thought it was a new Wii game pushing that old SD console to its limits. 2 years on and I still dont own a 3DS. Ill almost certainly never own a Vita, but this would be a great one last hurrah PS3 game for me. Maybe itll get an HD port someday. KIU will never get a port as Nintendo seems to limit voice acting on their home consoles to weehee.

Maybe somebody will make it into a movie. It plays up to the current guture dystopia fad in Hunger Games and Divergent and it looks like Godzilla Final Wars and Attack on Titan. It would have to be better than Battleship.

There are some great games coming out on VIta at the moment.

I doubt this is great. I'm pretty sure after getting mediocre reviews people are gonna start whining that they should be getting monster hunter instead. Just like Toukiden and the other clones. I'll still get it though, just like Toukiden.

@mibtar It's got good people working on it. It looks a bit complicated, though, in my opinion. It all depends on how well the game can effectively communicate how to play.

Wonder if it'll have the same mechanics as monster hunter and earth defense 2017. If it has the fun and thrills of earth defense 2017, it'll be an instant buy for me.

@mibtar But Toudiken was pretty good. And so were many of the clones. they could of been a lot better, as Monster Hunter does it probably the best, but I think this could differentiate itself enough to make a mark in the sea flooded with MH "clones" I guess you could say. Even from its first trailer, i noticed it'd be a lot different from MH, from movement to the objective of saving civilians. But to each his own. I'm probably going to buy it as well.
