Guilty Gear/BlazBlue's Arc System Works Makes Phi Brain Game

Anime-inspired 'puzzle battle adventure' PSP game to ship in Japan in May

The game maker Arc System Works (Guilty Gear, BlazBlue) announced on Monday that it will release a Phi Brain PSP game inspired by the Phi-Brain - Puzzle of God television anime series.

The title will feature a new scenario with new puzzles as well as puzzles from the anime series. The game's final title has not been announced. The "puzzle battle adventure" game will ship in Japan at the end of May for 5,040 yen (about US$66).

The school adventure anime's story revolves around Kaito, a puzzle-loving freshman at the private high school named "Root Academy." He is selected as a candidate for "Phi Brain" for his extraordinary mental skills. One day, he and his childhood friend Nonoha tackle the "unsolvable puzzle" hidden in the underground ruins near the school. They are guided by the mobile device given to Kaito by the student council president.

The puzzle is the "philosopher's puzzle," a life-threatening creation of a mysterious intelligence group known as "POG." When he defeats the puzzle, he is designated as a "Solver." Together with Nonoha and other Solvers, Kaito battles POG at "philosopher's puzzles" all over the world.

Sentai Filmworks licensed the original Phi-Brain - Puzzle of God anime, and The Anime Network has been streaming the first television season. The anime's second season will premiere in Japan on April 8.
