Sega's released a teaser website and Twitter account for a new mobile RPG, which it plans to reveal during Tokyo Game Show.

The new game so far has a website with pretty piece of art and a teaser trailer that hasn't been released in English at this time. That teaser confirms the RPG will be a mobile game, and hints at an anime-inflected visual style.

The teaser features a quill pen drawing out anime characters and a landscape before various concept art images flash at the end of the teaser, but there's seemingly no gameplay. The teaser is currently the only post on the game's Twitter account, below:

"Not a straight road, Let's make a one-time trip," the tweet reads, according to Google Translate. "#Trueroleplaying. Information ban lifted October 1, 2021 (Friday) 22:50 #TGS2021 online #SEGAnewRPG."

The teaser and website promise more information will be revealed at Sega's Tokyo Games Show presentation on October 1. Sega's presentation begins at 22:00 JST and ends at 23:50 JST, according to the TGS website. The teaser trailer says this specific game will be revealed at 22:50 JST. We'll be covering the show throughout, so make sure to check back for more information.

The full Tokyo Games Show 2021 lineup will also include new presentations from Xbox, Square Enix, Capcom, and more. The only other information revealed about Sega's presentation is that Atlus will be involved. There's no confirmation that Atlus worked on the new RPG that Sega is teasing.

Sega's next major release is Lost Judgment, a sequel to the Yakuza spinoff Judgment. IGN's Lost Judgment review says the game, "disappoints with its main story and simplistic detective work, but excels with its substantial school-based side quests."
