5pb’s Count Down Site Is for an Infinite Stratos Game

on August 7, 2013 8:25 AM

Just this morning we broke the news about a new count down site opened by Steins;Gate developer 5pb. The count down is still far from reaching its end, but we already know what it is about thanks to the graphics displayed.

The gauge portrayed belongs to the anime series Infinite Stratos, in which it’s used to determine the remaining shield power of an Infinite Stratos exoskeleton unit. Below you can check out a comparison between the teaser website and a screencap from the series, leaving no doubts about the nature of the teased game.

The timing is also perfect, as a second Infinite Stratos season is going to air in Japan this fall. Of course we still don’t know exactly what kind of game the new title will be (even if the developer mostly makes visual novels), nor the platforms it will be developed on, but this is still a solid step forward.
