With one week left in the Holiday themed Holly and Jolly raid event, PS Vita’s free-to-play Destiny of Spirits is now looking at what’s ahead. Amusingly, that future consists largely of looking at the past. Destiny of Spirits has had many collaborations with series like Gravity Rush, God of War, Sonic, Soul Sacrifice, and now it’s time for Killzone. To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Guerrilla’s first-person shooter franchise, Destiny of Spirits will offer Killzone Limited Summons from December 25th through February 5th. There will also be a Killzone themed raid event for one week starting December 25th. To kick the anniversary off, players will receive the Assault Infantry and Sniper spirits for free after tonight’s maintenance.

Killzone isn’t the only anniversary being celebrated by Destiny of Spirits this month. To commemorate one year since the Japanese launch of No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either, series protagonist (antagonist?) Badman will be gifted to all players on December 25th.

These festivities are just a part of a much larger Destiny of Spirits revamp. Launching on December 25th, Destiny of Spirits will be running the Neo World chapter. This will include title updates 1.09 and 1.10 which add a new battle system and more than 50 new spirits. Here’s some of the changes you can expect to see:
