US Nintendo downloads: Suda 51's Liberation Maiden arrives

All this week's latest digital content

The first of Level 5's Guild01 titles, Liberation Maiden, has arrived on the 3DS eShop.


Level-5's guild is made up of four master craftsmen of games development including Killer 7 and No More Heroes creator Goichi Suda, who's contribution to the four-game bundle is Liberation Maiden. It's a third-person air-combat shooter, and is our favourite of the bunch by far.

Other highlights include Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Castlevania: The Adventure and New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC.
