The lights are on
Last week, Sony teased a mysterious game it called Panopticon with an impressive trailer. This week, the Japanese website for the game has renamed it Freedom Wars, and confirmed it for Vita.
You can check out the original announcement and trailer here. Sony released a new trailer, but it seems to be the same content, except with an updated title and a PlayStation Vita logo at the beginning.
Based on the trailer, the game seems to be a sweeping epic of Final Fantasy proportions, with science-fiction elements remiscient of the Justin Timberlake movie, In Time. The official site is offering lots of reveals on assorted dates, so this is a game we will definitely keep our eyes on.

Nice!! An exclusive for Vita. GOOD. By the way... Justin Timberlake's In Time is a hilarious movie even though it was intended to be serious.
This looks so intriguing. Glad the Vita is getting more interesting games.
Awesome! Looks like a great Vita game. Can't wait to hear more.
This game looks awesome! The Sony is finally giving the vita its own IPs.
Holy cow, this looks awesome!!!
You wanted arts and crafts! How's this for arts and crafts?
Dang it I need a vita now.
I like "sweeping epic," but not "Final Fantasy proportions." If you really want me interested, you'd say "Golden Sun" or "Kingdoms of Amalur" or "Fallout" proportions.
FF games are hardly "sweeping epics" these days.
Also, I sincerely hope this remains a Vita exclusive. The system needs such games.
The new name is lame, also, Vita is lame.
Okay, Vita isn't that lame, it could use the games. I was just really excited for this and not in a handheld sort of way. I guess I shouldn't write it off yet, though.
not the game that is gonna bring the vita back (at least here in the US) but it does look cool.... keeping my eye out on this and Dragons crown
I'm getting a strong Death Note vibe off this.
Or, at least I was until the dragon showed up.
Oh my god! I really, really, really want this game! really bad D: Ive been seeing the video around online a lot recently. crossing my fingers it comes out state side >.<
