    EDIT: Re-watched the video in 720p. Holy crap, the graphics :O

      Watch it on the VITA. It looks better on a small screen with a lower native res than your PC.

    Usual comments over the net (Siliconera, neogaf, gamefaqs, etc.):

    “Reminds me of AoT”
    “Like Lost Planet”
    “Stiff animation”
    “God Eater Clone”

    • Franggio Hogland

      I would say it’s a PSO clone, just really effing different and now the waiting game starts….release it already!!!

      • Budgiecat

        Yeah serious……its funny how Monster Hunter gets all the recoginition knowing fully well how Capcom likes to bite stuff off.

        Phantasy Star Online was the first one!

    • Hexodious

      Meh. People always want to justify themselves and spit out the word “Clone” or “Rip off” when something is similar. Same thing happened with God Eater with Monster Hunter when it first came out.

    • Alkhan

      Siliconera(Ishaan specifically) bashes all Sony first party games and calls them clones of other games.

      Neogaf, lol

      GameFAQs is the only website on the internet where EVERYONE is a troll.

      Freedom Wars looks like another great SCE first party game and I hope it does well.

      • MyBodyIsReady

        People at Siliconera are getting on my nerves recently

        lets hate on this Sony game and praise whatever the latest 3DS game is that looks like it was made with a £1000 budget

        • TheFoolArcana

          You guys are getting really worked up about what some people you don’t even know are saying.

          • Sevyne

            Well it’s pretty damn irritating when personal bias leaks all over regular news articles. It’s bad enough in reviews on some sites, but Siliconera has that garbage right in it’s news (Ishaan by far being the biggest offender of this). It’s quite pathetic and offensive. People just want to read the news, nobody gives a damn how he wants to spin it. The dude’s ego is through the roof.

            • EX+

              Ishaan has very controversial opinions.
              He thinks that the Wii U is the only console with exclusives and he has a pipe dream about FFXV going to the PC.
              The moderators on Gematsu are much better in journalism.
              The other Siliconera mods are cool.

              • DarkLegacy

                Why have a dream about FFXV going to PC? This also means he’s a PC fanboy

                • EX+

                  That’s not even why. It is stupid to think that any FF aside from the MMO’s would go to the PC, but it’s just that condescending tone that he has about the PC.

                  • DarkLegacy

                    Hopefully FFXV doesn’t go to PC, which I don’t think it will but we can hope for it not to go over to PC

                    • EX+

                      The only real reason I hope it doesn’t is because it would take up more time and money for SE, something that FFXV has had enough of.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      I have a reason too on why I hope XV and KH3 don’t go to PC. It’s because PC fanboys are more than likely to pirate these games

                    • DarkLegacy

                      And also I agree, I have had enough of waiting now. It’s time for that game to be released hopefully next year and there’s no way I would be waiting another 7 years for XV to go on PC

      • Luna Kazemaru

        Ishaan is a Nintendo fanboy all you had to do was look at the site before pokemon was release how how late they posted all other TGS news (mostly god eater).

        Oh don’t call them out on anything or get a ninja ban :P

        • EX+

          He’s also a PC fanboy.

        • Elvick

          He never banned me, and I argued his ridiculousness many times. But I don’t go there anymore, because his fanboyism annoys me to no end.

    • Ferrick

      oh the irony…

    • Mugen555

      Funny enough Japanese call it God Eater+Spiderman

  • shogunknight

    This games selling point to me is the grappling and the dismemberment. Good stuff, love to see more

  • Raiu

    You can actually traverse environments and engage in air combat? Day one…

  • Karl Josef

    what’s with the railing? S4 League?

    • MasterSensei

      Am I the only one who wants Sony to pay to get S4 League on the PS4/PS3/Vita? That game is fun as hell and it would be more fun if there were servers that didn’t have hackers on it.

      • Karl Josef

        It wouldn’t happen since the game is too old AND created by korean company…

  • kirby755

    This game is very interesting, the Dismembering, grappling, and the moments that I will be freaking out about is running like hell, carrying the hostage and having a giant monster chasing after me. Man online is going to debate about who is going to carry the Hostage.

  • Budgiecat

    Why not make a PS3/PS4 version like Gundam Breaker did….

    • TheExile285

      because multi-plats don’t sell systems

      • Budgiecat

        yeah whatever

        • Gariya

          I’ve been wondering, do you actually think before you post, Budgie?

          As the producer said, he is tasked with a game that will promote hardware sales, the hardware in question is Vita which is quite struggling in sales. Exclusive games will move Vita sales more than multiplat games. Not to mention Vita owners have been quite disappointed with Vita’s lack of exclusives, which is a legitimate complaint. Give Vita and its owners some break, why don’t ya?

          • Budgiecat

            okay I will…

            you didn’t have to be so mean to me….

            • DrForbidden

              Coming from you, that statement’s hilarious… -_-

    • tubers

      “My company’s (Sony) tasked me with producing an original game that will promote
      hardware sales, so I looked for people that would help satisfy both
      motivations of mine.”

      This game ain’t nothing like CoD/GTA to be an actual system seller while being multi-plat.

    • sherimae1324

      You should be ban from your usual portbegging in any vita game related articles here

      zero or sal should notices your comments like this

  • MyBodyIsReady

    After playing Soul Sacrifice I’ve got a bit of a taste for faster monster hunting gameplay, grappling on to a monster and chopping it’s arm off? Sweeet

  • ayb_91

    Epicness !

  • Invisbin


  • artemisthemp

    Did Sony announce the Western release date yet?

    • Elvick


  • Alex TSi

    Disappoint …
    Look really bad (graphics and animation) – hope this only Alpha-build.
    GE2 and Soul Sacrifice look many way better …

    • Luna Kazemaru

      it is a early build its amazing people think this is final product. -_-

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Well at least you can temporarily hold onto a large enemy and hurt them like in Dragon’s Dogma.

  • Zero

    I think this actually looks pretty good. Some of the animation seems a tad rough, but it looks like the combat would be fun to play.

  • LeSamurai

    Attack on Titan vita edition

  • MrFinalgamer

    my gawd! hope mode engaged! can’t wait to kick some ass in this! (8 player online =3). this is basically how a AoT game would look like. if it looks this cool with this small monster, imagine fighting something like the beast from the trailer =D

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    Looks more interesting and fun than that SnK game on the 3DS

    • Budgiecat

      That Attack on Titan game looks interesting and fun

      wtf do people choose to call it SnK anyway; stop weeabooing the name.

      • DrForbidden

        If you have the right to whine about it, other people have the right to use whichever name they want. You obviously understand it, so what’s the problem?

      • Gariya

        People who call it Shingeki no Kyojin are most likely the ones who have read the manga way before the anime adaptation got announced, because most manga sites listed it as Shingeki no Kyojin.

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          Ive been reading it since it first came out, i call it AOT :/

      • Ni ~Algidus~

        learn to accept that people have a different opinion than yours, you idiot.
        And “weebooing”,seriously? I say shingeki no kyojin because i find it more easy to remember since i have japanese classes. stop whining just because people think different than you

      • Kobracon

        Thats kinda harsh. Instead of shouting ‘weeabo’ everywhere, you ever think people are just respecting the original name? Both AoT and SnK are completely valid names to call it. Just like how ppl can call JoJo part 4 – Diamond is Not Crash because its official OR they can call it Diamond is Unbreakable coz its grammatically correct.

        It doesn’t make them a ‘weeabo’ to call it its actual name.

  • pixelshader

    I feel like its God Eater meets Attack on Titan

    • Kobracon

      Dude….that sounds AWESOME

  • Elvick

    Looks hawt.

  • Kobracon

    Spider-man zips, grappling hooks and swords (oh my). The grappling looks really fun!

    My only criticism is running looks really slow, but I guess thats not a prob since you can zipline everywhere.

  • Fango

    this game look terrible….. but thats just me
