Japanese developer Spike Chunsoft has just launched a website teasing sometime, potentially for a brand new title. The website, which can be seen here, features nine eyes, each with their own specific puzzle. Clicking on each one will give you the chance to type in an answer, either with one letter or a few and eventually you’ll be given a password to put at the bottom of the page. We won’t spoil the actual puzzle solution for those who want to give it a try, but in short, it leads to a countdown timer that ends on July 1.

The prevailing theory right now is that this is a huge tease for a potential sequel to AI: The Somnium Files, which launched in 2019 for the Nintendo Switch. The title was created, written, and directed by Kotaro Uchikoshi, a long-time veteran of Spike Chunsoft, and well known for his passion for the suspense and thriller genre. Uchikoshi is also the creator, writer, and director for one of the studio’s most popular franchises, Zero Escape, which has three entries under its belt.
Spike Chunsoft is perhaps most known for the Danganronpa franchise, which combines elements from both Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei series and Capcom’s Ace Attorney series. The series has garnered critical acclaim over the years, and all of the titles have been ported to numerous platforms as well. This specific teaser doesn’t appear to be associated with the Danganronpa franchise, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the studio has something else in store for it in the foreseeable future. Either way, we won’t have to wait long to find out.
