Countdowns seem to be the preferred method of building hype for video games this month. Both Marvelous Entertainment and CyberConnect2 have recently launched mysterious countdown pages on their Japanese sites.
I honestly have no clue what Marvelous is hinting at in this case, but I am excited none the less. In about a week when the countdown has run it’s course I will most certainly follow up.
CyberConnect2 is most well known for their .Hack// series as well as a few Naruto fighters. It has been a while since a new .Hack// was announced – perhaps a next-gen title is in the works. If that is the case I admit I am a bit disappointed with how boring this countdown is in contrast to Marvelous’s. Get with the picture, CC2!
There was a time in my life when I was oddly obsessed with the .Hack// series and I am glad to see that the possibility of a new title doesn’t interest me that much. Still, I am really intreagued by whatever Marvelous is hinting at – here’s hoping for as awesome new RPG.
