Visual novel hits PlayStation 3 in Japan on December 5

Books are pretty nice. You can read them. They can also be used to provide warmth. Should you ever find yourself taking refuge in a library after climate change suddenly leaves your city flooded and freezing cold, that function will prove especially useful. At least that's the take-home message I gathered from the film The Day After Tomorrow, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Dennis Quaid.

Liberation Maiden Sin isn't quite a book. I wouldn't burn it to stay toasty on a cool winter night, at any rate. Blu-ray discs probably house some pretty gnarly toxic chemicals, but that's neither here nor there. The visual novel from Grasshopper Manufacture and 5pb. is slated to arrive in Japan on December 5, giving PlayStation 3 owners with plenty of words and static images to enjoy.

Of course, this all applies solely to Japan. Because we can't have nice things.
Liberation Maiden Sin is all kinds of pretty. The follow-up to Grasshopper Manufacture's Nintendo 3DS shoot-'em-up is ascending to Japan on December 5 for PlayStation 3. Until then, check out the visual novel's exhilarating opening cinematic featuring music from Marina Nakamura.
Liberation Maiden Sin is unfairly pretty. The follow-up to Grasshopper Manufacture's Nintendo 3DS shoot-'em-up is descending on Japan come December 5. Unfortunately, it's a visual novel, which all but ensures the PlayStation 3 exclusive won't see a release on Western shores.
Liberation Maiden Sin, the full PS3 sequel to the beautiful 3DS shooter Liberation Maiden, is still in the works. This time around, Maiden will return in visual novel form rather than a full-on shooter game, partially penned...
Liberation Maiden is getting a sequel! Well, sort of. It seems like Grasshopper Manufacture has decided to eschew Shoko's roots, following up last year's 3DS shooter with a visual novel for PlayStation 3. According to Si...
