Liberation Maiden is getting a text-based adventure game spin-off for PS3

Won't star everyone's favourite teenage president/mech pilot.

By Jeffrey Matulef

Suda 51's 3DS eShop and iOS shmup Liberation Maiden will be getting a text-based adventure game spin-off on PS3 entitled Liberation Maiden: SIN.

As detailed by Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu (via Kotaku), it won't star the teenage girl/president/world-saving mech pilot Shoko Ohzora, but rather a new male protagonist named Kiyoto Kaidou. According to Joystiq, Kaidou is a mind-reading member of the president's cabinet and there will be a dating sim element as he chooses which colleagues to go out with.

Liberation Maiden: SIN won't be developed by Grasshopper, though. Instead, 5pb. Games, creator of such digital novels as Steins; Gate and Robotics; Notes will be creating it, while Grasshopper mastermind Suda 51 is on board as a scenario writer. (Industry, PS3)

And sadly, by articles such as these there's every indication that the Western gaming community is interested in it, yet wont get it.

Nevermind that we're talking about a $90 date sim...

That would be a Visual Novel, date sims have much more gameplay mechanics than a Visual Novel.

VN=/=DS.

Yeah, the most you do in Visual Novels is pick choices for routes that change the story and ending. Dating sims typically involve multiple characters to pick between, as well as money/time/relationship management, etc.

They're both neat in their own way, and I wish they'd thrive at least a little bit in areas other than Japan. It's a nice break from the typical shooter, platformer, puzzler, etc.

They just both tend to get bad reps despite there being some real gems in those genres. (Can't say too much for the dating sim ones, as I haven't played hardly any. Visual Novels on the other hand tend to have some amazing stories. One of which actually gave me nightmares as a 21 year old man lol!)
