Square Enix Opens Teaser Website for New RPG “Light Novel-Style”

on April 1, 2014 5:31 AM

Square Enix just opened a new teaser website for a mysterious new RPG currently in development.

The only real piece of information included in the website is the definition “Ranobe-Style RPG,” for those unfamiliar with Japanese media, “Ranobe” is the contraction of “Light Novel,” a popular form of usually episodic book targeting a young adult demographic that quite often gets turned into Anime series.

The rest of the page just lists a quite stellar cast of local voice actors, while the project seems to be codenamed “Team 043.”

If it’s an April Fools prank, I’m really failing to see the joke, so I’m guessing it’s legit, but we’ll keep you updated on any further information we’ll receive about it.
