Freedom Wars

Famitsu has published two new Freedom Wars gameplay videos showing the game’s “Thruster Board” movement potion at work.

You can use the Thruster Board to move around the enemy quickly during combat. Or, as demonstrated in the second video, if your boarding height is at that of the enemy’s attack point, you can use it to strike the enemy.

Watch the footage below. Freedom Wars is due out on June 26 in Japan and later this year in North America and Europe.

      I think it’s in the Japanese demo but you should’ve been in the top ranking Panopticons or something.

    All I know is at this point, I feel like I’m asking this game out to the prom but it keeps telling me “maybe”. I. Want. This. GAME!

    • 武神水樹

      Only $30

      • Zackasaur

        I was surprised by the competitive pricing. They would have had my money at $40. Hell, at $50…

        • 武神水樹

          Ya I was surprised when I saw the price, went ahead and pre-ordered incase the price went up

      • KOKAYI5

        Oh I’ll get it, not import, the second they give a full release date, I’ll have my reserve in.

  • pixxxelz

    Wow this is amazing! Now I’m gonna have to make my character look like Marty McFly

  • ShadowFang

    Way more games need hoverboards. Especially boards that transform from weapons! It always looks cool!

    (Btw, don’t watch that if you’re upset at Sega for not localizing rpgs like Shining Resonance, Valkyria Chronicles 3 or Phantasy Star Online 2. It is another game of theirs that they’ll never bring over here).

  • Elvick

    Just when you think the game can’t be any more awesome.

  • PrinceHeir

    Awesome mechanics :)
