Nintendo will release three games from three well-known Japanese game developers — Goichi "Suda51" Suda, Yoot Saito, and Yasumi Matsuno — as downloadable Nintendo 3DS titles through its eShop later this year.
The games were released earlier this year as part of the Guild01 compilation in Japan. Liberation Maiden, a shooter from Suda 51 (Killer 7, Shadows of the Damned) will be the first released. According to Nintendo, it is "set 100 years in the future, when the president of Japan boards her Liberator, Kamui, and fights to free her country one region at a time."Aero Porter, an airport management simulation from Yoot Saito (Seaman, Yoot Tower), and Crimson Shroud, an RPG from Yasumi Matsuno (Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy Tactics), are all headed to the eShop by the end of the year.
Liberation Maiden will be available in the European 3DS eShop today. The remaining games will be available "in the coming 3 months," according to a tweet from Nintendo U.K.
The fourth game in the Guild01 compilation, Rental Bukiya de Omasse, has not been announced.
