Liberation Maiden is one of the four games from Level-5's Guild 01. It was suddenly released in Europe last week, with a US release pending for this year. The lovely Nintendaan has already got a video to share with us of the game in action. That dude is like clockwork with his gameplay videos.

I've been a fan of the Liberation Maiden's audacious concept since it was announced a while back. The game puts you in the role Shoko Ozora, a high school student who is elected President of New Japan. What's her first act as head of state? Hop on her giant robot jet and wage a one woman war on the alien invaders who are ravaging her homeland. Sounds legit!

The gameplay looks a lot less unusual than the story, like Sin and Punishment mixed with Blazing Lasers. Looks like it'll be good for a quick poke at the very least. It may even become a new GhM classic.
