More Puzzling Screenshots From Arc System Works’ Phi Brain Video Game

Arc System Works is working on a PSP game tied to the anime series Phi Brain. Players will solve puzzles in Phi Brain: Puzzle of Bonds has word square where you add in kana to spell words horizontally and vertically.

That kind of strikes Phi Brain: Puzzle of Bonds off the import friendly list, but the other puzzles aren’t as language intensive. The PSP game has color logic (essentially color Picross), sliding puzzles, and a line drawing puzzle where you have to pass through all of the routes once without going backwards.

  • I had a horrible flashback to Tales of Rebirth hiragana/katakana passwords

  • Spirit Macardi

    Is it just me, or does the guy with the black hair and red vest look like Duke Devlin?

    *starts listening to Sexyback whle looking at the screenshots*

    • Never

       Shut up, Mokuba.

      • Spirit Macardi

        No, because you never gave me donuts!

    • Herok ♞

       Wow I do see the resemblance between Daimon Kaito and Devlin but Kaito is a much more memorable character.

    First season did have one or two puzzles that did require knowledge of the meaning of the characters in the words in relation to the overall theme of the puzzle as it was a trap of sorts, so good they incorporated something similar in the game. I like that the series spawned a few other things, it would be interesting if they give it a third season.

    • Ya, maybe a third season thats not linked to Kaito’s past.

  • Da colorblind iz screwed ‘ere.

  • Is there some Orpheus Brace hint system :P
    Or does the game take place between first and second season.
