Check out the featured image down below, a new teaser for their new title was revealed over on Famitsu, while the game’s teaser site can be seen here. The full reveal is coming on December 23.
A message from Hashino via Studio Zero’s official website:
G uttered its first cry. Speaking of RPGs in those days, the stories in so-called “fantasy” worlds were mainstream. The Shin Megami Tensei series was released as an “opposition” to such a “common” world view, and the Persona series was released as its spin-off. Both series, even today in their latest entries, have always been made with the concept that it will be a counter to the times. And now, in addition to continuing the titles within those series, what will our approach to a new RPG be? That is, to challenge the norms of the genre gamers have been consuming for decades. The challenge is about to begin. We would be happy if you would stand by for the moment we began from Zero and the moment we began our challenge from zero.
— Katsura Hashino, producer and game director
