Bandai Namco teases a brand new project

As you'll well know, "Prepare to Die" is the Dark Souls "catchphrase", so could the new project be connected to From Software's universe in some way?

With the video game director and From Software President Hidetaka Miyazaki having recently declared that the Dark Souls series is done for now, the developer is now setting its sights on a new project altogether.

Bandai Namco is teasing something new, but with a somewhat familiar slogan that they've used in the past. What are your theories regarding this new project?

If the teaser is anything to go by, the game looks to have some hack and slash action waiting for us.

There is no need to say, Bandai Namco knows how to renew its catalog with experiences with different tones, its catalog ranging from racing games to RPG to adventure or FPS. Until then, it's best for gaming fans to begin putting on their Sunday best so as to "prepare to dine". Let us know in the comments. Armed with just a hashtag and that countdown clock set to April 20, the publisher uploaded an animated teaser to its YouTube channel - and although first impressions can be deceiving, we're really feeling this one.
