Liberation Maiden Sin emancipates Japan this week

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.
