While tri-Ace are currently working on Phantasy Star Nova, they’re also working on an upcoming free-to-play gun-action game called Judas Code, according to this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. (Thanks, Zaregoto.)

According to the report, the single-player mode of the game is all about the shooting, while multiplayer takes place in the form of a card battle. The story advances as you take on missions, and you can acquire cards through capsule machines, to make stronger decks.
Not much has been revealed as far as the story goes, but it is said that some mysterious pillar called “Longinus” appeared in the middle of World War III, and eroded the Earth.
The game is set in this destroyed world, where the new humanity fight in the dramatic battlefield RPG.
Judas Code will be released this Summer in Japan, as a free-to-play title with micro-transactions for PS Vita.
