Good Smile Company Announces “Freedom Wars” Beatrice Nendoroid Figure

Yeah, “Freedom Wars” is kind of a stressful game. I know that’s what you were all thinking when you read the title of the article. It’s one the latest and greatest PlayStation Vita titles to be released and it’s making huge waves around the world thanks to just how damn good of a game it is. You can read my review of it by Clicking Here. It’s getting so popular, in fact, that just today Good Smile Company announced through their official blog that they have developed a Beatrice “Lilly” Anastasi Nendoroid figure that will go up for sale sometime in the near future. For those who’ve not played the game; Beatrice is a pivotal character that you as the main character must protect throughout the game. Her life means the difference between prosperity and destruction, and now she’s a cute little figurine for you to have on your desk or on your shelf! So kawaii, right!? Yes, nothing says “let’s fight for our lives” like a cute blonde girl with a smile on her …

Freedom Wars – Review

I think it’s pretty safe to say that the PlayStation Vita, at this point in time, isn’t as popular as the West thought it was going to be back when it was first released. That’s not to say that the system itself is bad or that the games released for it aren’t enjoyable, in fact, out of all the consoles I have now the PlayStation Vita would have to be my favorite. Despite this being one of Sony’s own consoles in circulation during the same time as the PlayStation 3 and 4, the technological juggernaut seems as though it’s simply refusing to put any effort into advertising outside of Japan just how great the Vita is. Many games released for the handheld are niche titles that don’t get that much attention outside of their country of origin this is where we see a steep decrease in interest. In Japan, the Vita is still considered one of the members of the royal gaming family. Unfortunately, it’s not the same case in the West but I think …

Hands On With Freedom Wars – EB Expo 2014

Now if you’ve been paying attention to this particular title, you’d know that it has already seen its release in Japan. But, as is the norm for Japanese games, we here in the West have had to wait for Freedom Wars to line our shelves. As such, it was a nice little treat to be able to get my hands on the game and give it a try. First things first, the game looks amazing. It really makes you wonder how the PS Vita has continued to be one of the most under-appreciated consoles of this generation. The character models are clean, the enemies are detailed and the environments are expansive. You can also customize what your character, and their partner, look like, with the promise of more options as you continue through the game. It’s a cool little aesthetic touch that showed, even through the demo, that there will be a whole lot to do within the game. In the demo mission I jumped into, I was pitted against a robot that had decided, …

Europe To Get a Retail Release Of “Freedom Wars”

Originally announced as only getting a digital PlayStation Network release in Europe, Sony Computer Entertainment has come out today and announced that ‘Freedom Wars’ will be getting a retail release outside of Japan. European gamers, now you can have ‘Freedom Wars’ on your shelves next to all the other fantastic PlayStation Vita video game covers. The game will still be hitting Europe digitally for those of you who prefer to keep each and every one of your games on the console but will now also be literally hitting local shelves. This is all thanks to a high amount of public interest. Fred Dutton, SCEE Blog Manager, announced this particular piece of news by referring to the large amount of people voicing their opinions on the previously digital-only release for the game. Mr. Dutton stated that there are many gamers outside of Japan that would love to see this game physically and, well…Sony Computer Entertainment see’s what the people want and gives it too them. Clearly. Sony has yet to announce a Western release date for …

Freedom Wars – Update Details Released

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when certain news regarding Japanese gamers finding ‘Freedom Wars’ too hard was floating around the web? Do you remember when video game producer Junichi Yoshizawa came out and said that the development team were currently working on an update to fix the difficulty problem? You do?! Well it doesn’t actually matter because this update has absolutely nothing to do with the aforementioned bug. Japan’s ‘Famitsu’ magazine recently posted an information page up on their online publication which both announces and details a massive update for the game. Now, as mentioned, this update does nothing about the insane difficulty level but it does add a couple extra features that will surely boost overall gameplay value for the Sony Computer Entertainment title. The new update will add the ‘Internet Co-Op Play’ feature which will allow players to do exactly that; play matches over the internet with anyone around the world rather than just through ad-hoc. Don’t stress if you’re more of a ‘close proximity’ gamer because the ad-hoc multiplayer …

Freedom Wars Proves ‘Too Hard’ For Japanese Gamers

  It’s a well known fact that Japanese gamers are some of the most hardcore players in the world. If ever you think you’re good at a game…there’s probably someone in Japan that can play it way better than you can. Way better! The PlayStation Vita exclusive ‘Freedom Wars’ was released about a week ago over in Japan and already comments have been circulating the web regarding the difficulty of the game with most players saying that the game is massively unbalanced. It is yet to be confirmed as to whether or not this unbeatable difficulty level was a purposeful addition to the game but regardless of that, series producer Junichi Yoshizawa has commented on these complaints saying that the production team will soon begin looking into this ‘problem’. “It has come to my attention that the current players find the degree of difficulty to be too hard. In regard to the matter, we’ll be looking at countermeasures in the next few days. With all due apologies, please wait a little longer for corresponding details and …

Freedom Wars Story Trailer Officially English Subbed

Hey everyone quick question: Do you like freedom? It’s pretty great right. Unfortunately for some of our digital brethren, such liberties are not so readily presented. Therefore I turn you to the aptly titled Freedom Wars. In a world where existing is a sentenceable offence, prisoners must literally wage war for what should be their inexorable right. Oh, did I mention that the game is filled to the brim with awesome enemy monsters? Because it’s totally filled to the brim with enemy monsters. Grab your weapon of choice, buddy up with fellow inmates and tear down your opponents. Awesome. Another cool little feature worth mentioning about Freedom Wars is the fact that it will actually see a release in the West. This year no less. That’s right fellow Vita owners, a new game to play. In anticipation of this, an English subtitled trailer was released alongside a note from Japan Studio Producer Junichi Yoshizawa. Wasn’t that nice of him. So get amped people, the war for freedom shall soon be upon us. How will you fight? Freedom …

“Freedom Wars” Japanese Launch Video Released

Imagine being born and within seconds of your new life you’re thrown into prison. That’s pretty damn terrible right? I mean, what did you do in there? You couldn’t have killed a guy, that straight up doesn’t make sense! *cough cough* Regardless of what it was that landed you in such ‘hot water’, you’re now a prisoner of the new world. Congratulations! From now until the day you die, you will be forced to battle gigantic, part-mechanical, demon monsters who’s only intentions are to wipe out what is left of the human race…at least you still get three square meals a day. Eating only bread and water is a good way to stay in shape, I hear. Don’t look at this too negatively though, you’re equipped with a whole bunch of high-powered weaponry to help you fight against these ‘Abductors’, as they’re called. Guns, swords, thick vines that shoot from your hand, you’ve got everything you need to be able to defend yourself against these genocidal beings so relax! You’ve also got yourself a nice …
