On the pages of Famitsuu, Level 5 president Akihiro Hino revealed that he and his company have teamed up with Jirou Ishii. The name may not immediately ring a bell for many readers in the US and Europe, but Ishii is a critically acclaimed maker of adventure games in Japan. His most recent project, the multiplatform adventure 428 received a rare perfect (40/40) score from Famitsuu. Together with Hino and his team, he is now working on a time travel-themed game. Hino promised a game world of a massive scale and expressed the hope that the title could be turned into a popular franchise. As for the target platform, the Level 5 president would only say that it would appear on a yet-to-be released hardware platform and later expand to other platforms.
