New “Blockbuster” JRPG with Music by Nobuo Uematsu Teased, To Be Unveiled on November the 8th

Japanese developer Cygames opened a teaser site with a count down for something named “Project Blue” (most probably not the final title), described in the accompanying press release as a “blockbuster RPG.”

The title will be unveiled in a conference in Tokyo on November the 8th at 6 PM Japan Time, and said presentation will be livestreamed on Nico Nico at this link. You can use this time zone converter to find the corresponding time in your area.

What’s even more interesting is that the press release mentioned a “star spangled production team”, and in fact the sound track of the game will be composed by the massively popular Nobuo Uematsu, while the character design will be handled by Hideo Minaba, that worked as the Art Director on Final Fantasy VI, Tactics, IX and XII.

We still don’t know anything else about the game, including the platforms, but Cygames is normally known as a mobile developer and publisher. Yet that doesn’t mean this “blockbuster” game couldn’t mark their debut on consoles. We’ll have to wait about 70 hours to know.
