The teasing done by Bethesda Softworks has finally ended and as expected we have the debut of Shinji Mikami’s new survival horror game.

Link to the Past Receives a Sequel [Nintendo Direct]

This morning Nintendo resumed their new trend of direct-to-consumer release information via another installment of their “Nintendo Direct” series. Basically a online webcast in the vein of a press conference that all fans of Nintendo can join online.

Well, because this one featured information about a new Zelda game and Earthbound’s plans to come to NA.

First premiering on the Nintendo 3DS and then making its way to the iOS platform, Grasshopper Manufacture’s anime shoot-em-up title Liberation Maiden is finally coming to the PS3.  The debut of Liberation Maiden may sound like good news, but the game is ditching the twitch shooting action in favor of something a tad bit different – that of an adventure.

Such a thing could still ring true for SuperBot Entertainment, but for now the studio is alive and well.
