Square Enix has opened up a tease site for an unknown project. A video for it on the website doesn’t give away too much info, although does show some concept art for it. Get the site here (http://cc2012.square-enix.co.jp/). It’s seemingly set to launch this summer, so guesses of a social game are likely.http://www.vg247.com/2012/03/23/square-enix-teases-mysterious-title-for-summer-release/


"Secret Title 2012 Summer" and "C" is Coming are some clues offered by Square Enix on a new teaser site (http://cc2012.square-enix.co.jp/). A new entry in the esteemed Chrono (http://www.gametrailers.com/game/5911.html) series, perhaps?

Credit Andriasang with the catch here, as well as some translation on some other clues offered in Japanese during the above video.

Andriasang:
The video lists a number of keywords like crystal and summons (along with Odin, Titan and Diablos). Masaki Hirooka and Yusuke Naora are credited with illustrations. The trailer also lists "Summer 2012," presumably as the release time frame.

All I can offer here is that, given the inclusion of the terms "crystal" & "summons" and the Final Fantasy-familiars "Odin, Titan and Diablos", the game would seem to be an RPG. Also: Mr. Hirooka and Mr. Naora have Suikoden and Final Fantasy credits to their names, respectively.

As some early commenters have posited, a new entry in the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles (http://www.gametrailers.com/game/2748.html) series might fit best here.

Though unlikely, a new game in the Chrono series could be a best-case scenario for RPG fans, and according to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrono_Break) the Japanese trademark for 'Chrono Break' is set to expire in July.

We'll apparently know more in about a week, as a countdown on the teaser site has 160 hours and change remaining until… something… happens.http://www.gametrailers.com/side-mission/2012/03/23/square-enix-teases-mystery-game-has-me-chrono-hopeful/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

Why lost hope? Maybe they could release TR ahead of their schedule and in Summer 2012 instead of Fall 2012. :p

I think this "mysterious game" is a new Final Fantasy Crystal Cronicles title.

Does the font not look similar? Could we be getting Secret of Mana HD or maybe even a sequel?

C is coming? What could that mean?

It looks like a game of spades. Glitter and lights. And something that falls from the sky. Perhaps those crystals (as in Superman)
A kind of Dragon Ball female with samurai swords??

Definitely Final Fantasy, someone on IGN said it could be Final Fantasy Tactics 2, god I would scream like a girl if that's true! :jmp:

The CC series can go suck it. :p
