The game involves players navigating through the grid-based labyrinths and getting rewarded for figuring them out. There are menu-based battles against monsters included in the game as well. The trailer of the game appears to be quite difficult to understand, even for those fans who have been following Ito’s work for a long time now.

Along with Ito, Final Fantasy 12 producer Hiroaki Kato is also working on this game. Kato and Ito had worked together on the Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre titles with Square Enix. Nobuo Uematsu will be directing and watching over the soundtrack for the game, and designer Ryomo Ito has produced the artwork and character designs which can be seen below.

The characters appear in 2D static form for now and there are two adorable-looking characters in the game- a cat named Sir Cat, and a dog named Jufren. According to Square Enix, this game will give players almost 100 levels of challenges that will definitely get them working with their analytical abilities.

Besides this, Konami is also gearing up to bring a brand new installment to the Metal Gear franchise. Furthermore, reports by VGC state that the popular gaming studio Virtuous is working on the development of another Metal Gear game.
