5pb. is bringing Goichi Suda’s Guild 01 3DS shoot ’em up Liberation Maiden to PlayStation 3 in the form of an adventure game, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

Liberation Maiden SIN stars main character Kiyoto Kaidou, appointed as the chief aide under the supervision of President Shouko (the main character of the 3DS game). Kiyoto has the ability to read others’ minds.

Additionally, the game will introduce many new beautiful women as members of the cabinet. And Suda wrote some of the game’s scenarios.

      I’m… Really not entirely sure what you came in here expecting, lol. 5pb. is mostly known for their VNs =3=

      • Budgiecat

        for 5pb to try something new for once? Especially since title said “Liberation Maiden” aka a Suda Shooter?

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Actually, it wouldn’t be the first time they stepped out of their comfort zone. Their 360 exclusive fighter ‘Phantom Breaker’ says “Hi”. It wasn’t exactly good, but I’m glad to see them try to expand their genres.

      What’s wrong with VNs?
      What @TetsuyaHikari said

      • Budgiecat

        Visual novels are usually boring and have little to zero gameplay. Even games like Walking Dead, Mass Effect, Another Code R, Trauma Team, Time Travelers, 999, Phoenix Wright do it much better. You barely even have element of choice in VN. And as such, that means zero chance of localization on PS3 too. Color me unexcited sorry.

        • almostautumn

          To each their own. Plus, there’s a pretty big cultural-gap between west and east opinions with VN’s. It’s a thoroughly routed genre in the east, and despite them sometimes truly not even having choices, the aspect of using gaming for that style of experience is just common there, without the concept of “boredom” that most westerner’s truly do believe of it.
          Personally, I think it’s a shame we don’t get to experience them. Some of them, like White Album and Robotics;Notes, really sound like terrific stories— shame they won’t be released in English, really.

          • Budgiecat

            White Album just sounds like a dating sim and Robotics;Notes was extremely boring even as an Anime (watched it).

        • http://gematsu.com/author/ro-kurorai 浪黒雷 (Roland Gmyrek)

          You’re perfectly entitled to have that opinion and dislike the limited interaction in VNs. To me it’s more about the gorgeous art, stellar voice acting and great story than active participation in the game. It’s also a great way to improve/practice your Japanese.
          You’re absolutely right with the localization prospect, though. VNs are basically non-existent as a genre in the west so localization is highly unlikely.

          p.s. to be frank, ME’s shooting (i.e. actual gameplay) is piss-poor and conversing/ interacting with other characters is way more fun :P

          Time Travelers is a typical VN with the time stop mechanic and (mostly meaningless) QTEs making it somewhat different. Yet it’s still a VN in a broad sense ;)

          • Budgiecat

            Mass Effect 3’s shooting is a sloppy mess I agree. Binary Domain was much better in that regard. Beyond: Two Souls looks like the best Adv game though…Japanese devs need to evolve their genre with more interaction if they’d ever want the West to be interested in them (which I’m assuming they don’t).

            • http://gematsu.com/author/ro-kurorai 浪黒雷 (Roland Gmyrek)

              This is an interesting thought. I wholeheartedly agree that Beyond looks like the best Adv game since ages. QD fixed many of the annoying issues Heavy Rain featured and finally the cast is likable, dare I say it, even memorable.

              Regarding BD/ME: I only played the demo of BD and I agree, much more satisfying shooting than ME.

              Regarding Japanese games Adv games: they are, ultimately, designed and developed for a Japanese demographic. We can either take it or leave it, Japanese devs won’t change for us. A new generation is looming on the horizon so maybe we’ll see some paradigm shifts among Japanese devs, it wouldn’t hurt. As long as they don’t go the “guns, blood, gore, macho-protagonist = surefire hit in the west” route I’m cool with some changes.

        I think the biggest problem for VN in the west is whether one can stand reading the texts. Then again, if people can sit through a long novel, then they should be no reason why they can’t sit through a VN with picture, sounds and voice acting.

        • http://gematsu.com/author/ro-kurorai 浪黒雷 (Roland Gmyrek)

          Well, they are called “Visual Novel” for a reason. But I agree, it’s more of a different paradigm kinda stuff. I enjoy reading through visual novels, both on PC and Vita. For people studying Japanese they are a great id to practice listening comprehension, reading and Kanji.

  • Bloodios

    So, will it be purely visual novel or will it also include the original shooter elements? I mean, we’re not going through the missions solely by reading texts and looking at artworks, right?

    • Budgiecat

      most likely yes unfortunately

    That was…unexpected. PS3 exclusive from 5pb? That was unexpected too.

  • AdachiTohru

    A 3DS exclusive going PS3 exclusive ?

    • tubers

      Next up, a PSV iteration :D

  • Elvick

    This is getting tedious. All I ask is a Vita port. Come on… I have it on 3DS and it’s fun, but god I’d be so boss on Vita.

    And now this for PS3? D:<

    I mean, awesome… if we get it. :|

    But, come on. D:< Vita Level-5, your support has been self-destructive for the most part.

  • Himiko

    It’s a VN? Good stuff and expected. I look forward to it.

    I also like beautiful women.

  • PrinceHeir

    this is just as weird as seeing Ex Troopers coming from 3DS to PS3 XD

    still would want to play this!!!!!

    also that ASS :D
