Freedom Wars for PS Vita coming to the west this year


"You have been convicted for the crime of living"

Great news for PS Vita owners! Freedom Wars, a new title in the "monster hunter" genre by Shift (God Eater), was just announced for a localized release for the west, accompanied by a new trailer on the Playstation channel. 

You play as a prisoner whose only hope of freedom is by volunteering to fight in an ongoing battle. Highly customizable, you can change your character's appearance, class and weapons. The game-play is a hybrid of action, shooter, and strategy, and you can play co-cooperatively with up to 8 players online. You choose an allegiance to a city, where you can help in the effort to push the city you represent to the top of the global ranks. 

This has been one of the most anticipated localization announcements for the PS Vita, and the fact that it's slated to release this year is even better news. I've gotten a taste for the hunting genre with Toukiden: The Age of Demons, and while my personal vote was for a localized God Eater 2, the interesting new world and game mechanics Freedom Wars seems to offer is quite exciting.
