Freedom Wars: Sony Aims to Sell One Million Copies, Hints to the Possibility of a Series

Sony Japan Studio’s Freedom Wars was showcased extensively at Taipei Game Show, and Producer Junichi Yoshizawa is brimming with enthusiasm about the upcoming game, that will hit the Japanese shelves this summer.

Yoshizawa-san tweeted today that Sony’s aims for the new post-apocalyptic IP are actually quite ambitious while responding to a fan that sent him “good luck” message for the game:

Thank you for your hope in Freedom Wars! Yes! As for the title, we aim to sell a million copies. It’s worked on with the desire to grow the series. Also, I don’t think a “boom” is measured only with numbers.

As the same fan mentioned that he’s a bit worried about sales, but he has great expectations for the series, Yoshizawa-san continued:

Thank you very much for your reply! It has a much larger scale because it’s a title for which we aim to achieve a “boom.” While we’ll be aware of the situation of sales, let’s enjoy it to the fullest, because it’s a game!

Personally, I have high hopes in Freedom Wars as well. The art direction is lovely and the storyline behind it is very intriguing. Hopefully it’ll do well enough for Sony to really turn it into a series. In the meanwhile all we can do is to wait for a localization announcement.
