Sony Announces Freedom Wars For the Vita

The PS Vita has been an excellent system in need of some killer apps to sell it to more people. Today’s announcement of Freedom Wars could add yet another one of those kinds of games to its impressive lineup. This gorgeous co-op action-shooter looks to deliver a bit of Monster Hunter-style action in a far more appealing future setting. You and your partners do battle against giant monsters and thanks to a smart strategy, can take them down. Very little gameplay footage was shown alongside the announcement, but it looks like this will be a must-buy for Vita fans. Hopefully this comes to consoles as well, because the idea of Monster Hunter game with a vastly-different setting than both that series and franchises it has inspired deserves as much exposure as possible.
