Phosphorescent Lantse Comes to 3DS, Evokes Memories of Liberation Maiden

There’s a new shooter in 3DS-town, and its name is Phosphorescent Lantse. From Japanese publisher Amzy comes this anime-esque “dog fight action” game that involves what appears to be a blonde-headed vixen who transforms into a jet and blows shit up. That’s right — A JET! If that’s not awesome, we don’t know what is. Better still is the fact that Phosphorescent appears to be a shmup-like experience, taking some visual and gameplay cues from the recently released eShop title Liberation Maiden, and generally looks to include lots of flying and lots of explosions.

According to Siliconera, Phosphorescent Lantse is scheduled for a summer release on 3DS. Unfortunately, there have been no talks of it leaving Eastern shores, but with the recent influx of Japanese games finding Western localizations on Nintendo’s handheld, we wouldn’t be terribly surprised if it suddenly showed up on North America radars’ sometime in the future. In the meantime, scope the screenshots below for a look at what the game has to offer.
