As Capcom decided to make Monster Hunter 4 Nintendo-exclusive, Vita users often refer to Freedom Wars as "Sony's Monster Hunter" along with the God Eater series. Despite having an international release with full Chinese, Korean, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish translations, the game only features a Japanese dub.

Accessory's Voice Customization

Freedom Wars - AccessoryJP.png

The Accessory does not use full speech recordings, but instead uses voice synthesis. Due to the complexity of localizing this, it was taken out of the international version of the game along with its achievement. However, this feature was left in the Korean and Chinese versions, which temporarily switch the keyboard to Japanese.

This additional unlockable feature allows the player to customize everything their Accessory bot might say, and can make its voice synthesis say anything chosen by the player during any situation.
