Namco Bandai Japan has opened a mysterious teaser site which has been visually linked to a long-awaited follow up to Tail Concerto and Solatorobo: Red the Hunter.

The site advertises a new title for PlayStation 3, and the only other clues are the letters “sbs” in the URL and a star-strewn background.

The logo in the bottom left says “Bandai Namco Games Lab”, which is just the name of the publisher’s Japanese website.

AllGamesBeta points out it bears a visual resemblance to some of the assets on the site for Strelka Stories, a mysterious CyberConnect2 project.

Strelka Stories was announced way back in 2010 to celebrate the .hack, Asura’s Wrath and Naruto developer’s 15th anniversary. It was a space themed adventure starring dog-like creatures.

Nothing was ever heard of it again, but the visual style suggested it was some sort of successor to the much-loved Tail Concerto and Solatorobo: Red the Hunter.
