Nippon Ichi Software sent us a “happy new year” card (that you can see at the bottom of the post), and if you look at the bottom you can see that it includes a small tease for a new game.
Mind you, that’s not just my guess. The mail that accompanied the card actually stated explicitly that the three characters portrayed at the bottom of the card are related to a “new title of the year,” so you can take it as an official confirmation.
After all President and Producer Souhei Niikawa did mention that he has two titles in store, one for the summer and one for the winter.
A little bird tells me that we’re going to get specific details soon, and you can bet that you’ll read about them on DualShockers as soon as they’ll be released.
