Judas Code Is Loaded With Gun Action

By Sato . August 15, 2014 . 12:02am


Judas Code is tri-Ace’s upcoming free-to-play title with a shooting mode for single player and card-battle multiplayer mode for PlayStation Vita. The game’s latest trailer shows us its two modes in full motion.


The video starts out with a glimpse of the action, where you’ll need to shoot down enemy infantry and mecha units, all while dodging the occasional missiles. They then share a little bit about the game’s story and the mysterious pillar called “Longinus” that appeared in the midst of World War III.


We also get to see the two protagonists, and other key characters like the childhood friend Mei Yasoshima. They also show the leader of the Regenerator organization guild, Muerta Megalith, along with the mysterious Operating System girl, who quotes “Will betray God.”


At the 1:10 mark of the video, it demonstrates a closer look at the shooting action in Judas Code that is kind of reminiscent of a shooter game. You’ll take cover while shooting down all nearby enemies, except it seems like you’ll be doing plenty of moving on your own instead of being on rails.


Next, they show off its multiplayer card battle mode, where you’ll participate in 16-man 8 vs. 8 showdown, using different cards acquired through missions in story mode. By winning in this mode, you can even score some pretty nice loot, as well.


Judas Code launches in Japan on August 21, 2014 for PlayStation Vita as a free-to-play title with micro-transactions.

    UHHHHHH huge disappointment much? This is NOTHING like Resonance of Fate gun action at all.

    • Godmars

      Where did you hear that?

      • gulabjamal

        In my head the second I saw “Tri-Ace” and “gun-based action”

        • natchu96

          Well then you disappointed yourself.

          Not their problem to fix.

          • i agree , judas code is not resonance of fate II

          • Firekitty

            Which is a pity, considering what I’d do for a sequel to End of Eternity.

            But it’s still tri-Ace, so I’m sure I’ll love it (Unless it makes me motion-sick like most shooters D=).

  • CycloneFox

    I want a Gears of War-like, but story heavy sci-fi-shooter in anime look for my vita.

    What disturbs me a little about this game is the HUD. With so many input methods, the vita has, you don’t need to permanently show so many huge ugly buttons on the screen.
    And I hope it’s not on rails… But the trailers never show your character moving, which worries me.

    • watch again at 1’17

      but i agree , the hud is kind of heavy

      anyway we’ll see at tgs ! or before

      • CycloneFox

        That’s right, the character is clearly walking from one cover to the other there. But it kinda looks like he’s going along rails there. I really hope, that is not the case, or just some quick-move and he could have just gotten out of cover and moved there manually.

        • michel

          My impression is that it’s on rail, too.
          You never see, for example, any camera rotation.

  • Shippoyasha

    Looks somewhat like a Valkyria Chronicles meets Lightgun Shooter style of game. Very nice looking cards too.

    Actually looks pretty impressive for a free game.

  • Ercoman

    It comes out in a week? That’s awesome! I’m only interested in the single-player. I’m hoping the microtransactions aren’t too obnoxious.

  • DyLaN

    For some reason the art seems rather familiar…. *checks official site*

    Oh my, its Nagiryo. Now I am interested. /slowpoke

  • Kornelious

    Nice! Actual GOOD third-person shooter action! I’d say this has a good chance of localization if it wasn’t F2P :(

  • Firekitty

    I’m super-excited for a new tri-Ace game, but I hope I’ll be able to play it…shooters usually make me motion sick >.<

  • Ash_Riot

    Looks generic. Let me know when they make a new Valkyrie Profile game…(yeah, yeah, probably never…)

  • Dominique Soudant

    i wonder if we will get it in EU
