Lookin at the gameplay screenshot, it looks like Valkyria Chronicles, but maybe in real time & fight some monsters.

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.

Inception4044d ago (Edited 4044d ago )

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

Abriael4044d ago (Edited 4044d ago )

@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.

Black-Helghast4044d ago

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.

The details in that in game screenshot is crazy! Props to Japan Studio :D

talocaca4044d ago

I knew it! Coming from studio Japan I expect good things.

HarvesterOSarow4044d ago

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!

tarbis4044d ago

Color me excited! Can't wait for this game.

tubers4044d ago (Edited 4044d ago )

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:

PS Vita Exclusives Freedom Wars, Soul Sacrifice to Have Servers Shuttered

Sammy: "Two high-profile PS Vita exclusives, Freedom Wars and Soul Sacrifice, will have their servers deactivated on 24th December, 2021. Both titles, published by Sony in response to its loss of Monster Hunter exclusivity, were built around co-operative play, and maintained relatively dedicated communities to this day."

Oreshika is also getting it servers shut down too. Big shame for these games. Honestly some of Vita's gems.

Snookies12932d ago

I'm surprised these were even still up! Loved the Vita though, had some great times with that handheld.

XxSPIDEYxX932d ago

These games deserve sequels or remakes. It was Soul Sacrifice that even got me into Monster Hunter.

Rangerman1208932d ago (Edited 932d ago )

Honestly surprised they never got ported to the ps4 or even PC. Since Sony won't give the vita another shot, wht not make a Vita collection? Could have Soul Sacrifice, Freedom Wars, KZ Mercs, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Murasaki Baby, etc. As a way to conmemorate the Vita.

CDbiggen931d ago

Freedom wars servers are still up? Holy shit.
