Guild01 classification suggests individual releases
Level-5′s collection of 3DS games, Guild01, looks likely to head west – but as individual packages.
Liberation Maiden is just one of four games included in Guild01, and was designed by Grasshopper Manufacture’s Goichi Suda; despite this, it’s probably the most mainstream-friendly of the games on offer. It’s a shooter starring a robot-piloting schoolgirl who happens to be President.
It’s the only recent classification filing by Level-5, with none of the other titles making an appearance.
The classification adds weight to a theory that the individual games of Guild01 could launch as downloadable titles in the west; both Liberation Maiden and Crimson Shroud were trademarked in the US last month.
Guild01 brings together a number of Japanese development talents and was a roaring success in Japan; a second collection is expected.
