5pb Is Teasing An Announcement And The Clue Is "Shield Energy"

By Spencer . August 6, 2013 . 10:30pm

image5pb has a countdown site up with a green sphere and "shield energy" written on top of it. Any guesses? I’m hoping for a Liberation Maiden shooter.


It’s a long shot, but it wouldn’t be too unreasonable. Why? Because 5pb actually made an original shooter called Bullet Soul for Xbox 360 and they are working with Level-5 on Liberation Maiden’s visual novel sequel.


While visual novels are still 5pb’s bread and butter, the developer has been branching out into other genres with Phantom Breaker and the Xbox Live beat ’em up Phantom Breaker: Battlegrounds too.

    No link to this countdown?

    Hmmm… phantom breaker was a disappointment, phantom breaker battlegrounds though was amusing

    Seems like it is related to Infinite Stratos. The Shield Energy display is the same used in the anime for the IS. I made a screenshot from the 2nd anime episode.

      holy…..you’re right!

    • Yup. That’s gotta be from IS =)

      Fantastic job noticing that.
      If they make this play like one of those old Gundam games I never got to play, I’ll be happy.

      Definitely Infinite Stratos.

      I’d LOVE a good IS game. The show begs for it.
