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.

Last week I mentioned that Hideo Kojima and Suda 51 were working with 5pb on a new adventure game as part of 5pb’s Science Triogy following Chaos Head and Stein’s Gate (both of which have animé adaptations). Today, despite the game apparantly only being 1% complete, a trailer for the game has been released making people believe that the game is going along faster than people expected. The scenario writer for the previous two games will also return in this undertaking and while a platform has not been confirmed yet, more details are expected to be announced at Comiket. The trailer in question comes after the jump.
