Xbox One is getting some sort of mystery exclusive out of Japan, as teased a few times now by Microsoft’s Phil Spencer. Could it be Shinasutimikira Project, a new Xbox One title teased by former Cave boss Makoto Asada?


The tease comes from a site hosted by Japanese developer 5pb. Whatever it is, the project is in development at company subsidiary MAGES, the same team behind the Phantom Breaker series.

Perhaps the biggest clue is the site’s logo, which reads ‘Div8’ and displays a skull sitting atop two crossed shotguns.

When Asada quit Cave in 2013, he told Siliconera at the time, “When I was going to quit Cave, about 10 companies contacted me to see if I was interested in joining them. Out of [those companies], MAGES had the best deal. Our president offered me the opportunity to explore and really do something interesting.”

We’ll update once we know what this is.
