Today Sega opened a new countdown site, presumably teasing a new game.
The site showcases a fantasy-looking environment with floating islands, a throne, and a giant clock. The count down will end at 3 PM Japan time on January 19th.
Interestingly, the URL of the website includes the word “senki” which means “war chronicle” in Japanese. This may or may not be a reference to the 1991 Sega Genesis strategy RPG Bahamut Senki, that was developed and published by Sega.
No other hint is provided, besides the message “Sega reveals a mysterious countdown. When it reaches zero, something will happen?!”
We’ll have to stand-by and see what it’s all about. Interestingly, this is not the only tease released by Sega over the past few days. Another was done on Twitter last week, but this one points to tomorrow.
Another interesting possibility could be something related to the anime Record of Grancrest War (Grancrest Senki in Japanese) that just started airing on January 5th, and is seen as the spiritual successor of the massively popular series Record of Lodoss War. Both were born from light novels by Ryo Mizuno. Of course, this is just personal speculation, so don’t take it as gold just yet.
