Sony Japan Studio’s PS Vita Exclusive Freedom Wars Gets Awesome 11 Minute Long Video and Screenshots

on December 19, 2013 5:23 AM

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia just released a lovely new video of the upcoming PS Vita Exclusive action JRPG Freedom Wars, and a batch of screeshots and information.

The video, that you can see below, is presented by the game’s new mascot, theĀ ultra-high-performance general-purpose teller Propakun, and gives us a deep overview of the game and its systems, showing more gameplay than we’ve ever seen before.

The screenshots introduce Shaz, a rookie criminal and the hero’s friend and rival. It seems that Shaz has had a rather seedy past, but now he’s a solid, honest fellow, despite his looks.

We also get a glimpse on the banned social area “Law Street,” that connects the cells of the criminals. It’s always heavily guarded and filmed, and there are monitors spreading propaganda video and audio. We finally see the cells themselves, that are the only private personal space granted to the prisoners. “Private” is an overstatement, as personal freedom is minimal and criminals are watched 24 hours a day. The cells are in fact called “full monitoring prison cells” for a reason.

By raising in the hierarchy prisoners can actually earn cleaner cells.
