Freedom Wars is slated for release in Japan this summer. In the game, players take on the role of a customizable protagonist who has been sentenced to a one million years in prison, and must perform rescue missions to reduce the sentence. The game includes a multiplayer mode.
Oreshika is short for 'Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke' (Go Forth Over My Dead Body). Players control a Japanese clan that has been cursed with a maximum lifespan of two years, and must lift the curse by making each generation stronger than the last.
The original Oreshika game shipped for PlayStation in Japan in 1999 and was remade for PlayStation Portable in 2011. A sequel celebrating the 15 year anniversary of the game is in development for PlayStation Vita, and will ship in Japan this July.
