While we haven’t been covering the upcoming Parasite Eve: The 3rd Birthday, expect that all to change. Let us begin with the newest videos that explain a few of Aya’s different abilities that utilize what is called the Overdive system. This system gives Aya the ability to control other soldiers around her during gunfights. Though as you can see below there are a few other abilities that give Aya an edge during battle.
First we have the Liberation technique. The player will see a gauge where their Liberation meter will fill up as they defeat enemies, and when it is full Aya will move faster and evade attacks automatically. On top of that Aya’s weaponry will shoot energy bullets instead of whatever is equipped at the time.

Another ability though is Crossfire. Crossfire allows Aya to synch up her gunshots with one of the soldiers on the field. The meter fills up overtime as you are near fellow soldiers. When it is activated both Aya and the soldier she is linked with will focus their fire on one enemy and finish it off quickly.

The 3rd Birthday will be arriving in Japan on December 22nd, but will also be making the trip across seas to the US in the early months of 2011 on the PSP. You can catch the English trailer for the game itself below as well.
