Acquire’s teaser page shows copyrights for several map data and satellite image companies.
The developer of Tenchu and Way of the Samurai, Acquire, has a new project on the way for the PlayStation Vita. As of now, it’s unknown what the game is called – a teaser site has been established with the words “Are you alive” and some strange numbers. Beyond that, nothing.
However, a quick look at the bottom of the site shows copyrights to Digital Earth Technology, Digital Globe, TerraMatrics, Zenrin, and Google Maps. These companies are in charge of map data and satellite images – can it be that Acquire’s new game will have these come into play somehow? Maybe they’ll involve the images themselves rather than using map navigation as a gameplay feature.
Honestly, anything is possible. Maybe a survival horror game? We’ll wait till we get more news – particularly from the weekly Famitsu. We do know they have enough experience on the PS Vita with Shinobido 2, Sumioni: Demon Arts and Orgarhythm released for the handheld already.
