Under development at Div8 studios.
Deathsmiles developer and former Cave head Makoto Asada is apparently working on a new Xbox One title which is dubbed as “SHINASUTIMIKIRA Project”. Asada has his own development studio titled Div8 but at the moment we are clueless what this project is all about. The image above is the only thing we have so our guess is only good as yours.
However, when Asada left Cave, he explained that his ex-studio were no longer interested in developing console games. “Cave had announced that they were going to take a break from consoles and stuff that goes directly to the consumer, and that’s really what I enjoy about what I do,” Asada explained. “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,” he told to Siliconera back in September 2013.
Ever since the original Xbox, Microsoft have struggled in Japan, so hopefully this is one of the signs that Redmond based company is making improvements on that front.
