If Atlus didn't manage to weird you out enough today, just wait until you see the "bonus video" they just revealed for Project RE FANTASY.

At the end of a livestream on Nico Nico dedicated to  the upcoming games by Atlus’ new team Studio Zero created by Persona 5 Director Katsura Hashino, the developer showcased a “bonus video” about its upcoming high fantasy RPG codenamed Project Re FANTASY.

If you watch the video, be prepared to wonder “what the hell did I just see?”

Basically, it’s five minutes during which the warrior from the concept trailer released earlier today eats a whole pigeon taken from a paper bag, without even removing his armor. As you may imagine, eating poultry without utensil while wearing plate gauntlets is just a little messy.

The video ends with the knight saying “I’m a knight. I just finished eating a pigeon” with what appears to be a French accent, and the message “Pigeon. Middle Age” followed by the slogan “ReTHINK Fantasy RPG”

Feel free to try to interpret it however you want, but my mind is blown, almost literally. I have not slept last night, and I’ve been writing for hours. This is too much for me.

You can watch it below. If you want to hear a bit more, you can also read a few more comments from Director Katsura Hashino himself.

If you’re curious about Project Re FANTASY, you can check enjoy the funny message by NieR: Automata Director Yoko Taro about it, read the messages from Studio Zero’s own developers, and watch the first teaser trailer from last year.

At the moment we have no more information on Project Re Fantasy. We don’t know the release windows, and platforms have not been mentioned, even if Hashino-san himself heavily hinted that it could be on consoles.
