Watch the first tiny glimpse of gameplay.

New information on SCE Japan Studio’s 2014-due PS Vita multiplayer action game Freedom Wars will arrive on November 21.

The news comes via Sony’s United Front Academy festival in Akihabara, Tokyo today. A trailer made up of old CG footage was shown, but teased a November 21 reveal date for the latest information.

Freedom Wars will also be playable at Jump Festa in December.

Watch the new video below. The only difference is a small glimpse of gameplay towards the end, around 3:26.

Thanks, Game Jouhou.

  • Invisbin

    Easily my most anticipated Vita title.

  • Elvick

    Yay, glad we’ll get more news soon.

  • Kayseur

    Still hoping it’ll be as playable in solo as Soul Sacrifice was, but I’m totally looking forward to this.

    • artemisthemp

      The 2 Morgain Lay Fay wasn’t Soloable or at less would have been a hell to do so

      • tubers

        Not if you lurk gamefaqs and youtube.

        I saw someone laying freeze bombs and sucking 2 illecebras to freeze them. Solo (YT vid)

        Pre-patch, spamming Sea Scales + use Ice Armor works wonders.

        It’s still risky if chaos or tedious if defensive build.

  • bloodiOS

    Tank-like movements aside, the graphics is pretty good for a Vita game.

    • jujubee88

      Thanks for the gif!

  • British_Otaku

    Looking forward to London on Steroids in 2014. >_>
    Thank goodness that Jump Festa will have good footage later this year, I hate it when games I’m interested in a lot decide to do really obscure teasers like the Attack on Titan 3DS game.

    • bloodiOS

      London on Steroids

      Um… what are you talking about?

      • British_Otaku

        I’m a Londoner.

        This game compared the number of CCTV cameras (over 6 million if you look at other records) in London in 2013 (which some find unreasonable to the point calling us a “Big Brother state”) to the number of cameras in Panopticon.

        • tubers

          I don’t think you’ll be seeing much of the “London on Steroids”. It seems more like prologue and the rest of the game(play) is in dilapidated settings.

          • British_Otaku

            It seems so, but it would be waste to just have Panopticon (such a cool name) only in a few cutscenes and not much stealth or direct conflict in those camera heavy areas.

  • Learii

    I like the music is sound cool

  • jujubee88

    Looking forward to this and GR2.

  • kirby755

    Its been awhile I saw this game, love to see what they have to say.

  • ayb91

    I loved the graphic style. Looks promising *_*

  • new_tradition

    I feel a little bad about forgetting it, but the trailer reminded me why it has my interest *_*

  • MrFinalgamer

    oh my god the graphics are REALLY good for vita. can’t wait until we see some more proper gameplay!

    • ayb91

      I know right !? Vita will rise strongly this time.

    • Strid

      “REALLY good -for- vita”

      You must be lacking in the seeing of a lot of Vita games. Quite a fair amount of them look really, really good — that said, not a lot of them have made it out of Japan [yet].

      • MrFinalgamer

        i know, i own one with quite a lot of games on it. that part was not meant to sound demeaning, it’s the other way around!
        this is a system that holds graphics better than Uncharted 1, and on par with Killzone 2-3. if a game still looks really good in comparison, then it must be doing something right in the graphics department.

  • 武神水樹

    Kyoutou sensei is awesome

  • Budgiecat

    I hope its more than just another MonHun clone…

    • TheBlackRabbit

      story usually is the difference

    • tubers

      I don’t think there’d be such game anytime soon that would escape that term for a lot of people specially as a co-op 3rd person jarpg with swords and projectiles.

      It would depend on how one specifically defines an “MH Clone”.

      • sherimae1324

        i agree with you on that tubers….
        what i hope is that this game has a meaty single player

        • tubers

          True. I was a bit concerned that it was announced as an 8 Player MP with Yahoo Maps. I felt the game’s emphasis was way more on MP. That’s mostly a gut feeling tho.

    • Raiu

      You do know MonHun takes after Phantasy Star, right?

      • Impressionnant

        Most people who play MonHun don’t even know what Phantasy Star is.

        • jujubee88

          Phantasy Star Online was fun. Man, now I really want SEGA to localize PSO2 for my VITA. >.<

          • Belenger

            Just import it, seriously do it you will not regret it.

  • Nate

    That’s insane how it comes out this month and there is no gameplay. I think it’s awesome how this is made by a first party Sony team. Those are always great on the vita so far. This game has all but bean confirmed for a western release by shuhi yoshido. I’ll probably be grabbing it asap when it comes over.

    • charanb

      it’s not out this month…new information will be released this month

      • Nate

        Oops. Thanks for clearing that up.

  • JoJo_649

    More teases, between this and Gravity Rush, 2014 looks good for the Vita, hopefully Medievil and Wild ARMs join them at some point.

  • SOLOmio

    enough with the for-play let’s have some action!!
