If they make something like this... Maybe they should make an online game of this...

Well if this is just a fighting game, it should be okay. 2nd Season and OVA of IS2 stunk badly.

Maybe there should be hidden abilities like Ichika is invincible against attacks for short time due how dense he is (when comes to woman.)

Good point because that is Ichika really is (at times).

The game looks quite good and interesting. I'm hoping 5pb. also published this game on Steam platform for PC or PS4.

i know that all too well when they released liberation maiden for the 3DS. while it had great animation including the cut scenes , the gameplay was kinds overdone already.

though i was kinda disappointed. was hoping that it would be news of possibly a season 3 for infinite stratos or probably the light novels would get adapted into a manga version.

Liberation Maiden on 3DS isn't a 5pb. game. The 3DS game was developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and published by Level-5. 5pb. created a Liberation Maiden visual novel for PS3 and Vita.

After he turned the LN into a massive trainwreck upon getting a new publisher, I'd rather they just let the series die in peace.

SilverTalon01, I do you find it to be a train wreck that the creator changed publishers?

A third season can't happen anytime soon with the LN's coming out irregularly. The anime is now basically caught up, and the most recent LN volume was 9 in April, the first in over a year. Volume 8 April of last year was the first one in two years.

The issue isn't that he changed publishers. It is that when he did, he also changed what he wanted to do with the series. I guess after not getting an IS novel published for 2 years, he just had a shift in this thinking?

that's far too irregular. its like some mangas that dont have the shouen jump label where it takes like months before the next volume comes out. which will mean the next IS anime would probably be an OVA.

though a manga release isnt out of the question. but the problem is who will actually want to adapt it into a manga since harem genres have taken a hit in the manga community now that negima have finished its run. sure it have a popular fanbase in the otaku community, but its not toaru no majustu index or even highschool dxd.

So the chances of the IS light novels getting a manga adaptation is the same as elfen lied getting a manga version being released to the US. very slim.

But stranger things have happened so its not impossible. at least that's what i think.

gameplay footage:

Virtual-On style weapon meters and small maps w/ 1v1 combat, but the movement of characters and the camera looks more like Gundam Extreme VS.

It looks like it was made in Unity, probably a budget game. Still interested in a mashup of Virtual-On and EXVS, really interested in what the control schemes will be like.
