Liberation Maiden, Aero Porter, and Crimson Shroud are releasing on eShop, and Level-5 has sent over some information on the games.

Liberation Maiden from Suda 51, is a full-scale 3D sci-fi shooter set 100 years in the future in New Japan. Players take on the role of Shoko Ozora, piloting a humanoid robot called Kamui.

The game brings “AAA production values to the downloadable market in an unprecedented collaboration of all-star creators in music, art, and design, including breathtaking animation by the acclaimed animation studio, bones.”

Check out the game’s website here. It’s out today in Europe.

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. The game is a new RPG that “reimagines the tabletop RPG, and puts the power of the dice in the player’s hands to determine their fates.”

We posted the teaser earlier here, but it’s below in case you missed it.

The games were created in partnership with Level-5 through the Guild01 compilation for Nintendo 3DS, and a follow-up called Guild02 was announced in May 24, and will include designers Keiji Inafune, Kazuya Asano, Takemaru Abiko and Kaz Ayabe.
