Straight from the Taipei Game Show, we have a look at Freedom Wars recorded during our hands-on with the PlayStation Vita game. We’ll have more on Freedom Wars with an interview tomorrow.


Freedom Wars is slated for release in summer 2014.

  • tonyp1987

    It’s looking like it might come to the west because the text/sub/menu was in english

    • Lumi

      It looks entirely in English! Think this will pretty much confirm localization

      • tonyp1987

        I hope so I can add it to my 25-30 vita games lol plus my psn/ps1/psp games on the vita lol

    • icecoffemix

      At the very least Reg.3 will have English text option.

  • Pdugna

    omg that cat and dog in the background look great

    • Pdugna

      Also I noticed that with all Taipei Game Show footage I can hear Danganronpa playing in the background :D

    • Kaien

      Freedom Wars? Booth girls? Nah, better the dog thing.

    • DarkLight

      You know,I think I’m gonna get that game.

      • leingod

        What game is it? Nintendoge?

        • DarkLight

          I think the name of the game is Pets lol.

  • PreyMantis

    Looking great! Let’s just hope it comes out in the West.
    I wonder if someone can just go into a building and hide from the monster chasing you…

  • icecoffemix

    Is it fully English?

    • DyLaN

      The audio seems to be in Japanese, but the text is in english frm what I’ve seen.

      • icecoffemix

        Perfect! :P

        • DyLaN

          This is just the demo though and the end result may vary. Keep that in mind.

          Then again, we did get PDf.

          • icecoffemix

            Noooo, thought I’m keeping my hope high as RO Ace also has english text on reg 3 release.

          • Guest

            The European one will be Japanese audio/English text. So the NA should follow suit.

    • tubers

      Unpolished English so far. That’s just the demo.

      • GH56734

        Well, Japanese Gyakuten Saiban DS 1-3 had unpolished English as well (and I mean typos. Lots of ’em)
        I bet the Asian version will have EN text and JP audio, judging from previous Sony releases. One game ended up being released in English (proper English!) but only as the Asia version, back in 2009.

  • Lemski07

    must buy along w/ toukiden got a very busy summer.

  • GodLikesSnacks

    Is this compatible with vita tv? I hope so, because this game would be great on big screen!

    • tubers


  • Kasuga Yuki

    Hmm, am i the only one who think the movement kinda odd and the gameplay is not that good, i mean compared to it’s competitor like Toukiden, GE2, and SS?

  • Anewme…Again

    I love that there’s a skip option at the end of the mission, in place of always having to wait after each mission before we go back.

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I’m more curious as to how they was displaying it on the big screen. I hope the vita TV comes westward, but I want a wireless hdmi device for current vita more than anything. This game looks awesome though, I hope this and God eater 2 release this year for US

    • tubers

      Wireless Display output on future VITAs would be awesome!

  • Ping92

    the girl isn’t holding the vita properly! the fingers are on the rear touch pad

    • HerokÔÖ×

      but if the rear touch pad does something when touched then you don’t want fingers there.

  • Nickie

    I know this may sound ‘casual’ but can you lock onto the target like Soul Sacrifice/Toukiden or is it free style like God’s Eater/Monster Hunter.

    • TheExile285

      You can lock on. Also. GE has lock on as well. (At least, GEB & GE2 do)

  • Sacchan

    is that doge at the background

    • Ferrick

      such shibe
      happy friend

  • Furu Chi

    2014 is gonna be a busy year!!

  • tubers

    Much thanks! SCE (SiliConEra)..

  • Earthjolly

    That damn dog in the background

  • MrTyrant

    Now i want doge DLC in Freedom Wars…

  • Folk Hellfang

    Too bad the guy on the big screen couldn’t figure out how to move the camera.

    • ninjabart122

      Agree with you there.

      The game looked really awkward from how I saw it on the screen, seeing that the camera was in the same position for the most part until they started messing around with it.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Why do these types of things always have some kind of weird camera issue I’ll never understand that

  • mace

    dang the girls in the video made me forget about the game lol

  • Pandakids09 .

    Sweet! Now i’m really hoping it get simulrelease

  • pixxxelz

    Wait!! How, when, why… English am I really seeing english! Holy crap that means we won’t have to wait that long for a localization right?!

  • TheSoullesOne

    The game looks cool the only disappointment is the running it almost looks like you were trying to run while dragging tires all over

  • Kaetsu

    Haha the Danganronpa theme is playing in the background at 3:14.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Localization almost confirmed….I hope.
