A visually-arresting piece of artwork depicting a girl and several silhouettes, plus a line of Japanese text that roughly translates to “for inspiration, we looked at things that lie beyond the veil of everyday life” – that’s what you get when you head over to Nippon Ichi’s new teaser site for an upcoming PS Vita title; the second part in the company’s 20th anniversary project.

At this point in time we know absolutely nothing about this new PS Vita title – who the characters are, what kind of setting, game genre… heck, we don’t even know what the game’s supposed to be called! Nippon Ichi has chosen to play it coy, so we’ll just have to wait until they decide to spill the beans.

That said, judging from the teaser site artwork, Japanese forum-goers are speculating that Hiro Kiyohara, the mangaka behind Another, might possibly be responsible for the game’s visuals. An anime adaptaion of Another previously ran in Japan from January to March.

Like we mentioned, this mysterious Vita title is but the second in a series of games being developed as part of Nippon Ichi’s 20th anniversary project. The first title under the project was previously revealed to be an RPG featuring character designs by Noizi Ito, whose name you might recognise as the illustrator for the Suzumiya Haruhi series of light novels.
