In Freedom Wars, you’ll be playing alongside others to take down giant Abductor enemies to mitigate your million year prison sentence. You’ll also have android partners called Accessories that can be fully customized from voice to looks. 4Gamer shares a look at some of the customized Accessories.

The top two images shows a look at the default protagonist and his Accessory that you may have seen in trailers for the game. The bottom ones shows a look at the protagonist and Accessory that has been customized, looking completely different.

He’s a look at how you’ll be customizing your Accessory. You’ll be able to pick male and female, and various customize patterns. The two in the above image have their default uniforms, but you’ll be able to change their colors or give them other outfits.

As far as facial appearances go, it’ll range from being able to make sexy young ladies to handsome older men.There will be other costumes that can be used to cover your character and Accessory’s faces to give them more of a mysterious vibe.

In addition to the default uniforms we’ve seen thus far from Freedom Wars, there will be plenty of casual outfits like some of the ones seen in the above images.

 

026

Once you’re done with the looks of your Accessory, you’ll be able to customize his or her voice, by adjusting accent, voice pitch, speed, and more. You’ll also be able to pick what kind of things they say, when and where they should say it, and other options.

  • Raze

    Gonna make’em short-ponytail white haired kuudere….

  • Rio Raze

    Oh god…, that android is adorable :3.. Now, just hope that is really “useful” in battle when release… :)

    • Atwa

      Those quotation marks make that sentence real creepy.

  • Go2hell66

    dress your waifu: the game

    • Herok♞

      You forget so soon Toriyama already did Lightning Returns… it is the same right?

      • pixxxelz

        Except lightning looks more like a guy

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    The customization of the Accessories alone is a huge reason for my hype for Freedom Wars. I can’t wait to see more of the customization part, and the game in action.

  • vileBrenman

    Damn all of those designs are awesome

  • cloudcaelum

    Dam, looks cool. Style some like Digital Devil saga.

    • xavier axol

      love them both, but damn! devil saga’s characters look so hot. then again you can’t customize them like you do in freedom wars.

    • natchu96

      Ever since I found out about SMT I’ve wished I could actually fit a PS3 in this room so that I can actually play these awesome games T_T

      But fate says no, sadly . . . and all because I tried to tempt fate before I actually got the room. I can’t be that bad right?

    • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

      Ah, one of my favorite series =^_^=

    • Vash bane

      I really hope that game gets a sequel or something it was just so awesome -_-

  • MaximDualBlade

    I’m not saying “I like really short shorts”, I just put it in quotations :)
    I love customizing the look of my character, this will be cool

    Added kinda unrelated note : I want a Giorno Giovanna costume and a Iulius Zeppeli costume

  • natchu96

    . . . wait, our rival has a sentence of 9,999,999?

    I’ll just assume he’s actually extremely battle-hungry and is actually getting it extended on purpose, because that number looks less like the actual number and more like the AR display ran out of digits.

  • DanteJones

    Totally making mine look like Aigis because reasons.

  • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

    I still don’t really get it, maybe I missed some news articles, but do I get it right that you have to play as this brown-haired dude and you can’t change his appearance or gender, but only that of his accessory? Is that only for the single player story mode? Do you use your own avatar when playing together with others? This is supposed to be a multiplayer game, right?

    The other screenshots make it seem like you can actually have a female player character or change the dude’s appearance.. so err, what exactly do I have to expect from this game? I’m confused.

    Ps: Didn’t they also say at first that the accessory would be female only or do I remember something wrong here?

    • MaximDualBlade

      It has a single player mode, but it will have a focus on multiplayer gaming. About the main character’s apperance, I have the same doubt as you

      • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

        I’m still hoping the player is not actually controlling the hero but the accessory tbh. I mean.. unless you can actually change appearance and gender of the hero, or maybe chose between playing him or the mysterious heroine that got introduced some time ago? I just wholeheartedly prefer playing as a girl and in a game like this, with focus on multiplayer, creating your own character, with gender & appearance options just makes sense… ;_;

        • WhyWai

          aren’t those screenshots already show us that we can customise gender and appearance for both character and accessory.

          • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

            But why does nobody talk about it? It’s just those screens, no mention of any customization (besides clothing) for any other characters other than the accessory, they introduce all the characters of the main story but make no mention of who you’re directly controlling and who you aren’t… I just find it very confusing, as if they are not too sure themselves yet how this stuff will be handled.. like I said, I’m pretty sure that when the game got announced there was no mention of a male accessory option and suddenly it’s just there. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to see changes being made after player feedback has been taken into consideration, if this was the case here, who knows, it’s just that right now I don’t really have any idea what exactly to expect from this game, the more info they give out the more I’m confused. D:

            PS: I didn’t read all articles about the game, so I don’t doubt that I might have missed some important piece of information that would make me feel less confused but still…

          • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

            Thanks!! See, I missed that one, this clears up a lot of my questions! :D

            Now the hype can begin, I guess. ;D

          • Vash bane

            lol

        • MaximDualBlade

          I would be surprised if you cannot custom your main character. I hope we can change gender at will. I like changing my character XD Also I hope there aren’t any gender-specific costumes :S

          • notpathetic

            Actually, in those screenshots, the character on the right is MC, of both genders and is fully customizable. ;)

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 禍津水樹 (MagatsuMizuki)

    So this isn’t like God Eater 2 where I can’t customize the protag?

    • neocatzon

      Um, you missed a paragraph.
      “The bottom ones shows a look at the protagonist and Accessory that has been customized, looking completely different.”

  • http://vindictushots.tumblr.com/ Okuni-chan

    To import or wait and see… hmm

  • zferolie

    Can the protag be female?

  • MrRobbyM

    Waifu/Husbando simulator/Hunting game. A dream come true.

    • Nickie

      Be nice if you could actually have a romance in game with an NPC. T^T

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 禍津水樹 (MagatsuMizuki)

    Looked at the video closer and you have an option to change the players race, not sure if that’s the protag cause the 2nd one says accessory

  • Oltheros

    Kind of hype. Not sure how they will localize the voice customization though.

    Of course, I hope they keep the original voices.

    • ninjabart122

      I’m really doubtful that they’ll leave it up to western players to make makeshift phrases by trying hard on the speech synthesis, so in all likeliness, they might just drop that, give an array of premade phrases, or make it some sort of text only thing.

  • Kaetsu

    Needs a ponytail option.

  • Göran Isacson

    I’m going to design a robot that’s programmed to laugh at all my jokes. Like, for an uncomfortably long amount of time. Enough so that everyone around me gets REAL nervous and then I’m going to gaslight them and pretend that I have no idea why the Accessory is laughing.

    But in case I can’t design their personality and just their looks, I’ma just go ahead and make my Accessory look like Snidely Whiplash and spend a lot of time zip-lining people to roads, since I don’t think there are any train-tracks around.

    • FlobotingIt

      That was glorious.

      • Göran Isacson

        I try. Because hey, if I’m going to spend 999999 years in prison, I might as well get what chuckles I can out of it.

  • xavier axol

    and here’s the video in action……http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ienU35GgoM

    • Vash bane

      O_O wow that’s some in depth customization there

  • Guest

    God I hope we get his o.o

  • 3PointDecoupage

    Man you scared me when I saw the word Android.

  • Kazekage Gaara

    I want this so bad o.o

  • Syn

    I will make my Accessory look like “Theresa of the the faint smile”, i love that character so much…WAIFU!!!!!!!

  • Alexandra Cordes

    I can’t wait to make my accessory a cute, happy-go-lucky boy.

  • Lalum

    Wait, so you can go female main character with female android?

    • notpathetic

      Yes. And male with male. Thats what I’d do. :)

      • Lalum

        That changes my plans completely. Time to make my Amazon+Shortie duo.

    • zferolie

      Yay! Now I really hope this comes here

  • TheAnswerisback

    Ok so this is an import must I can’t wait for this to be localized just can’t

  • chroma816

    If this doesn’t come over I think I just might cry.

  • notpathetic

    I’ll make my accessory to begin and end the battle with seemingly unrelated, but actually very symbolic haiku lines, sometimes full of irony.

  • fireemblembeast

    *__*
    I’m such a sucker for character customization lol

  • nonscpo

    Everybody in the station get ready for that Hype train…lol

  • http://mewisthebest.deviantart.com/ AnotherDeadArtist

    Can we dress up as a Monokuma tag-team? ‘Cause that’d be awesome.

    Nevertheless, these are some incredible design options and I’m liking all of them!

  • Taylor Davis

    Wow ,you can actually (kinda) make Ocs and I like that…If only I had a psvita…T_T

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    ….Goth Lolita option please

  • Vash bane

    “sexy young ladies to handsome older men”

    now that’s what i’m talking about lol I like customization (who doesn’t now days? lol) in games and this sounds cool if anything (like a few hunting/like games I played in the past) I if the customization is good and combat is good I might forsake the story.

    ….
    >.>
    <.<
    going to be rolling both genders (if this release)

  • JustThisOne

    Ahaha, that’s cute. :>

    I wonder if any of the in-game characters end up being accessories in disguise? Seems pretty hard to differentiate at times. :>

    • Göran Isacson

      Huh, that’s an interesting possibility. THough I wonder what it would mean for the theme of the game. Like, why would you bother giving a robot a prison sentence? What importance would it have if they turned out to be AI’s? I guess one possibility could be that they are an Accessory who developed so much of it’s own mind, that it became an actual person… and then, because it was a “person” and not a “servant” like the other Accessories, the board of the prison decided that since it was a “person” it should also be a “prisoner”. One with a longer sentence than most, just because they know that an Accessory can live that much longer than other people…

      Oh. Oh man. What if the antagonist, who seems to have SUCH a long sentence, actually turns out to BE an Accessory, and he’s actually fighting for the right of he and every other AI to be something more than just a slave to the system? THAT could be a cool twist: that the only one “human” enough to fight the system and try to oppose it instead of just go along with the flow, would be an AI.

      Granted I think I read somewhere that the antagonist isn’t a rebel against the system and just a very competitive prisoner from another jail… but man, what if that turns out to be a twist? That the AI’s try to rebel against the prisons not because they are malfunctioning or some other stereotype, but because they are the only ones rational enough to see how flawed the system is? All hail our machine liberators!

      I should probably stop speculating now, lest I just get disappointed when the actual game comes out.

  • VeniVidiVici

    I really hope in the main story you can actually use your own designed avatar instead the Light Yagami clone they show in every trailer.

    I also hope(so much) that if you indeed can choose to be female in the story, that there is some difference in dialogue and character interaction. Persona 3 Portable and the newly released Toukiden did an excellent job of making it seem I was an actual female with their character interactions, rather than a male character wearing a female skin as most games that give you a gender option do. I mean, if you’re going to pander to both genders then go all the way. Don’t just stop at first base. Go home or not at all.
