Sony Computer Entertainement Japan just partly unveiled the game that was previously identified as "Panopticon".
Lookin at the gameplay screenshot, it looks like Valkyria Chronicles, but maybe in real time & fight some monsters. http://cdn.dualshockers.com...
If it is anywhere like Valkyria Chronicles I'm sold. 100 times over. Even because they're probably bringing this over to the west, unlike Sega with Valkyria 3. What makes it even more interesting is the screenshot with the yahoo map, possibly indicating some form of augmented reality.
My common prediction: Sony lookin at Valkyria Chronicles and think it still have untapped potential. And then they ask SEGA for a new VC for PS3/Vita co-develope with Sony Japan Studio. Just like Sony made Soul Sacrifice with Comcept/Marvelous for Vita. But Sega said 'NO' and they choose the other road with Nintendo (exclusive Sonic & Yakuza 1-2 HD for Nintendo platform). Well i can't blame Sega. It's business afterall and they got shitty condition because Alien:CM. So, Sony continued their 'look alike' Valkyria Chronicles project and bam! Freedom Wars is born for Vita. edit: Btw, my prediction is true that Freedom Wars is for Vita. Heheh, watch out Pachter, i will steal your job in no time :P :P :P
I think if you guys are expecting Valkyria chronicles style gameplay you will probably be disappointed This has boss hunting game written all over it
@Blastoise: Very possible, but the game still looks sick, so I'm quite sure It'll be enjoyable regardless of genre. After all the best part of Valkyria was the story.
It seems the character with the big gun is the on controllable hear, I don't think this is like VC gameplay, just similar cell shading.
Good, this is good. This is the first Vita game that got my attention. I haven't bought a Vitaf cause the games there honestly don't draw my attention. I say make another J game like this one, then a Kingdom Hearts or a Final Fantasy with gameplay mechanics like Crisis core,maybe a patapon game and I'm def buying a Vita.
*2014* how about games from important franchises this year?
The details in that in game screenshot is crazy! Props to Japan Studio :D
I knew it! Coming from studio Japan I expect good things.
Good news that it's Japan Studio to go along with a pretty sweet trailer. I hope to hear more about this title in the future!
Color me excited! Can't wait for this game.
It looks like a cover based shooter with some melee.. closest thing I can think of to relate it with is God Eater + The 3rd Birthday. Here's more with some weird discolored filter: http://abload.de/img/576af2... Surveillance Criminals Abductor Volunteer
THAT looks interesting. Didn't think to do that :D
Something origininal for the vita, sounds interesting.
I'm happy with this news and Tearaway gameplay. I'm ready! ^~^
It looks pretty darn good. The Yahoo map is weird, but I won't judge until I know some more. I wonder if Sony plans to release bigger game cards for the Vita, a move up to 8GB would do wonders for the system.
Vita is peaking up it's Steam, let the games coming SONY! Let's get it on!
i knew this day would be a "good day" for me! ^_^
First PSV game I am 100% looking forward to.
Alright, gotta keep my promise. Need to gather up enough cash to get a trip to Japan, Head to Sony Headquarters and have enough moneys left over to hand to the damn receptionist personally for this game before they throw me out on my ass for being insane. Sometimes...i need to think about what i say before i spit it out my face. Sony is DEFINITELY about that life now and are doing little effing around when they say "We got something u guys might like"
