5PB’s track record of creating what is essentially the Metal Gear Solid’s of the Visual Novel genre with their relentless scientific explanations, varied cast of characters and huge cult following continues with the third game in their “science” series entitled Robotic Notes. When I first reported on this, the game was rumoured to be a collaboration with Hideo Kojima and Suda51 and the only details could be found in a 15 second trailer showing a variety of locations in the game. Well, to anyone who cares (Me), Famitsu put up a second trailer that’s a whopping TWENTY SECONDS LONGER than the original trailer displaying one of the possible heroines along with more interesting psuedo-scientific technobabble. When the game was first announced, 5PB said the game was pproximatly 1% complete however considering the relative simplicity of the Visual Novel genre, expect a release sometime this year in Japan.
5PB have been well known in the gaming industry for porting various CAVE games to the 360 such as Ketsui and DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou as well as creating the “Science” series of Visual Novels with NitroPlus whose works so far consist of Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate. Following on from this, 5pb announced this week that they were currently working on three adventure games for the 360. See more after the jump.

An Adventure Title between Kojima and Suda51 isn’t exactly something that has come out of the blue. After the release of No More Heroes and Metal Gear Solid 4, Rumours of “Project S” started to circle after Suda, Kojima and Mikami were interviewed and Kojima brought up Project S which was supposed to be a sequel to Snatcher that he would collaborate on with Suda51. In the end, this turned out to be a radio drama although there were even more rumours of something else being in the works. Now it turns out that they ARE working on an adventure game after all along with the CEO of 5pb: Chiyomaru Shikura (They ported a lot of CAVE games such as Ketsui and Ibara as well as creating the visual novels Chaos Head and Stein’s Gate). See more after the jump.
