2D girls? Whatever! Queen’s Blade snagged ample pin-up model Yuuri Morishita to cosplay as scythe-wielding ghost maid Airi for a new photobook.
The last time our paths crossed with Ms. Morishita’s, she was appearing in a NSFW promo clip for the Airi cosplay book. Before that, she was cosplaying as Chun-Li. And before that, she was holding a limited edition DS. Dunno what she was doing before that. Sorry!
Queen’s Blade was originally a Lost Worlds style “combat picture book game” and has been published in Japan for the last couple of years. Queen’s Blade features only female characters, and its spin-off series Queen’s Gate has showcased the likes of Iroha (Samurai Shodow), Mai Shiranui (The King of Fighters) and Dizzy (Guilty Gear).
This latest photobook feature Morishita is done in the Queen’s Blade “combat picture book game” style. It’s priced at around $US27 and comes bundled with a DVD.
Queen’s Blade has also been spun off into an anime and the upcoming Namco Bandai PSP game Queen’s Blade Spiral Chaos, which is out this December in Japan. Namco has released new screenshots for the game, which can be seen here.
