If you’re living in Japan and you’re planning on picking up the PlayStation Vita, or if you already own one, then you can expect to get your hands on a free online RPG by the end of the month. This was announced by Q Entertainment who revealed that a game dubbed Guardian Hearts would be making its way onto Japanese Vitas by the end of August. While it was not confirmed, it seems likely that Guardian Hearts for the Vita would be a port of the company’s mobile title, also called Guardian Hearts whereby players will be able to hire other players as NPCs. Like we said earlier, the game will be free to download and play but will be adopting the freemium model whereby the developers will earn money through a microtransaction system which lets players purchase extra items using real money. No word if the game will be available for other Vita owners around the world, but for now it appears to be a Japan exclusive.
