God Eater makers Shift and Street Fighter IV co-developers Dimps will be helping out Sony World Wide Studios in the development of Freedom Wars, and this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine also shares additional gameplay details on the upcoming PlayStation Vita game.
As you may already know, in Freedom Wars you will be fighting to mitigate the million year prison sentence that was given to the protagonist at birth by taking on giant enemies called “Abductors”. Famitsu reports that while on multiplayer, you’ll get to see how many years other players have remaining in their sentence.
The magazine also says that the game will put emphasis on short and long-ranged fights and have plenty of Thorn Whip and citizen rescuing action. In some of the rescuing missions, the citizens will be moving, and they compare it to an amusing game of Capture the Flag, where the flag moves around, and you’ll be required to find the best ways to catch up to them.
Freedom Wars is slated for release in 2014 for PlayStation Vita.
