[Update: Liberation Maiden is now available worldwide via the App Store for $4.99 / €4.49 / ₤2.99.]
Well, this is unexpected. Liberation Maiden has arrived on the iTunes App Store in New Zealand. One of my favorite titles of last year, the Grasshopper Manufacture shmup originally launched on 3DS as a part of Level-5's Guild01 compilation before making its way to other territories as a stand-alone downloadable release.
Liberation Maiden is available for $6.49 NZD on the App Store, which would be slightly less than its asking price on the Nintendo eShop. It's likely we can expect a worldwide release within the day.
