New gameplay from this weekend's Taipei Game Show.

Freedom Wars

Gamer.com.tw has uploaded seven minutes of Freedom Wars footage from the Taipei Game Show. And it’s in English.

Currently, Sony has only confirmed it will release the game in Japanese and Traditional Chinese languages. So seeing the game in English is a surprise.

That said, it’s not confirmation of an English release. Recall Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F, which Sega first made playable in English on PS Vita at E3 2012, but did not decide to officially localize until almost a year later.

In addition to the English footage, Gamebase.com.tw has also posted 14 minutes of Japanese footage from a Sony stage event. Both videos are attached below.

    Well, they must have already made the game with english localization in mind. Question is how long before the western release? Hopefully not too long. Nice gameplay, really reminds me of God Eater. I do hope to see more areas and monsters though

    • SuperLuigi

      As long as it doesn’t come out feb-april. Too many vita games already then x.x

  • tubers

    The English Text could be for other Asian/South East Asian markets.

    • thekingq8y

      well if it is then i am happy anyway this look very hard lol

    • HassanJamal

      I hope so.

  • Unretributed

    They’re probably going to announce the localization when they announce the slimVita and/or Vita TV on the 30th

    • Budgiecat

      And then you’re gonna get me it plus a Vita TV, a Vita Slim and a Porsche and a Ducati

    • icecoffemix

      Along with Over My Dead Body 2

      And with that there goes another two in my backlog for this “has-no-game” console. :(


      • Budgiecat

        It really still feels like it has no games.

        Even though it has games…

        • icecoffemix

          Of course, if you try hard and ignore many of its library, *insert console here* has no game.

    • JoJo_718

      Alongside Gravity Rush 2!!

  • PrinceHeir

    this looks fun as hell :)

  • TheExile285

    That English text is gonna tempt me to import. Must resist the temptation and wait for localization!

  • SuperLuigi

    Reminds me of PSO and Lost Planet. I’d definitely try it if it comes over to the states.

    • Budgiecat

      Lost Planet? Shouldn’t it remind you of God Eater?

      • SuperLuigi

        Didn’t play god eater. Had a ps2 and psp just didn’t like hunting games back then. Also the camera and the grapple hook. Dunno just an observation.

      • tubers

        Grappling hook (Thorn in FW) and gun/gun mechanics seem closer to LP (traditional reloads and ammo pick ups).

  • bloodiOS

    I’m impressed at how smooth everything looks on that HDTV screen! The game seems to have some rather effective AA (with solid performance to match), I didn’t expect to see that from a Vita game. The gameplay also looks rather interesting. Overall, I really like what I’m seeing here.

  • kirby755

    Well this is very interesting I hope this will be localized.

  • Elvick

    Sony you best be localizing this. There’s no excuse to pass on 1st and (mostly) 2nd party titles being localized. If you can’t even bring your own stuff, why expect 3rd parties to bother?

    This looks great and I wants it. D:< (and SS Delta, Gravity Rush 2, pretty much every Sony game… which includes Invizimals damn it)

  • Rikimaru

    Doesn’t the game having English subs mean that its eventually going to see NA localization??

  • Peacenutman

    I went to Taiwan for my grandma’s 90th birthday, so I also stopped by Taipei game show, and it’s PACKED, lots of free swags and booth babes.
