5pb/Mages President Teases “Sci-Fi Psycho Suspense” Game


5pb/Mages founder Chiyomaru Shikura has a number of projects in the works. For starters, he’s working on his supernatural light novel, Occultic;Nine. He’s also involved with Liberation Maiden Sin, a visual novel sequel to Suda 51’s Nintendo 3DS shoot-em-up.


In addition to those projects, Shikura says, he’s got two other projects in the works—a “sci-fi psycho suspense” game set in Shibuya, and another unrevealed project.


Other projects in the works at 5pb. include Disorder 6 and the company’s Rozen Maiden visual novel. At one point, Shikura was also collaborating with Hideo Kojima on a new multimedia project.
