LEVEL-5 Announces Three Games for eShop
LEVEL-5, best known for their Layton video game series and the upcoming game Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, is bringing three of the studio’s most popular Japanese-only releases to North America this Fall via the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. The three titles – Liberation Maiden, Aero Porter and Crimson Shroud – were previously released only in Japan as part of Guild01, a multi-game pack.
Additional details about North American release dates and pricing for each of the titles will be released soon.
Liberation Maiden is a full-scale 3D sci-fi shooter created by developer Goichi Suda, better known as SUDA51, from Grasshopper Manufacture, creators of Lollipop Chainsaw, No More Heroes, Shadows of the Damned and many more. Set 100 years in the future in New Japan, Liberation Maiden puts players in the role of Shoko Ozora, piloting a humanoid robot called Kamui.
Aero Porter combines puzzle elements with a simulation of airport operations. Designed by Seaman creator Yoot Saito, the player sorts color-coded luggage onto conveyor belts while avoiding mishaps and delays. Players are also able to design and share their own planes with a wide range of colors and patterns.
Crimson Shroud was created by game designer Yasumi Matsuno, whose previous works include Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, and Tactics Ogre. Crimson Shroud is a new RPG that reimagines the table top RPG, and puts the power of the dice in the player’s hands to determine their fates.
