Liberation Maiden last edited by ChieArale on 07/27/20 09:47AM View full history


Originally part of the Guild 01 collection, Grasshopper Manufacture's Liberation Maiden was released as a standalone 3DS eShop title in Europe on October 4, 2012 following its announcement via a European Nintendo Direct presentation. The game's North American release date is October 25, 2012.


The player takes control of Shoko Ozoro and her mechanized suit, the Liberator. The 3DS Circle Pad is used to control Shoko's movement while the L button can be used to put her into a strafing mode. Players must use the touch screen to aim the Liberator's reticule at enemies at which point they will be targeted. When the touch screen is released, the Liberator will fire at all targeted enemies.

The main goal of each level is to destroy a set amount of Lesser Spike's in order to disable the main force field and gain access to the final Spike. Each level also contains sub-missions which can be completed to receive a higher score. Levels can also be "purified" by Shoko by destroying enemies and objects within overrun areas throughout. Again, this results in a higher score. When a level is completed, it is unlocked in Stage Attack mode and can be replayed in order to try and get a higher score.

The game plays very similarly to Kid Icarus: Uprising sharing the same control setup. Unfortunately for left-handed gamers, there is no option to use the A/B/X/Y buttons or Circle Pad Pro when playing Liberation Maiden.
