Freedom Wars in-game clip sees Sony pushing 2014's line-up

With the big beasts for the Vita now out on Japanese shelves, Sony is trying to divert gamers' eyes forward to the future with next year's offerings. Leading the way is Freedom Wars, which has input from the God Eater 2 team Shift and Sonic 4 crew Dimps, to widen the talent pool. This first in-game action shows the usual team of players running around the usual demonic fiend, bringing it down in a fiery and disjointed end, with grappling hooks to get higher around the scene.

How does that fit in with the Panopticon concept of massive prison sentences for all citizens? Guess we'll find out soon enough, but roughly every beastie you take down or citizen you rescue (guess that's the carrying to the pod scene) helps reduce your sentence, hopefully there are other ways to do that too. Clearly there's a lot of work to do but this is the kind of game that the Japanese are lapping up and if it can do anything a little different, that could see it sell easily.
