Freedom Wars is even more interesting now that we know it’s coming west; meet some of the cast and a collection of enemies encountered in the multiplayer Vita exclusive.


The sci-fi story is set in a dystopian future ruled by Panoptican, a system which imprisons citizens and forces them to fight for dwindling resources. There’s a resistance, of course, and it works to free Beatrice “Lily” Anastasi, for reasons which remain mysterious as yet.

Freedom Wars is a Vita exclusive previously known as Panopticon. It hits Japan at the end of June, and was recently confirmed for North American release. It seems to have a lot of cool features, like an online City State War mode and AI companions whose voices can be customised.
