So… is this SMT4? Gauntlet looks kiiiiinda similar. I’m probably wrong though.
The April fools joke?
DONT GET IT!
Ishaan… If this isn’t a joke… This at least warrants an explanation. :P
EDIT: Okay, this is totally SMT4 now. There’s a 3DS tag, and it’s looks like one of those glove comps. :>
I was thinking a Gauntlet remake or something…
Simple, I know…>.>
It’s funny, because that was the first thing I screamed over twitter. xD
But then I realized, naah. Why would April Fools Day go out of it’s way to make me so happy. :P
But… but why are the two gauntlets different? Are we going with an asymmetrical look here?
Either SMTIV… or April Fools. I like the day but damn if sometimes it doesn’t get annoying
Dark Souls 2? Trails in the Sky 2? Valkyria Chronicles 3? SMT 4?
Oooh, is this the return of game announcement hints via subtle pictures? Those were always my favorite. I’ve been sad you haven’t had them as much recently.
Princess Arthur maybe?
Princess Arthur is for PSP, no? This hint is for a 3DS title. ^^
Oh, oops, I missed that.
Yeah, I only noticed it after I read @google-12bf473b07dbabc1db8973adb35270a0:disqus mention of SMT4 actually. :P
I like them too but it’s always funny how some people come out really pissy with unrealistic expectations. Remember the one Atlus did in their Atlus Faithful last year with the game starting with a G?
The answer turned out to be Gungnir, with a later announcement for Growlanser, but some Growlanser fans (before the later announcement) got annoyed when the game they wanted wasn’t the one that was picked. Heck, I even remember at least one person freaking out over the potential release of Persona 4 GOLDEN (which wasn’t announced yet at the time)
In other words, it’s all fun and games, as long as you have a tub of popcorn ready to munch on ;-)
I love posting puzzles hahaha. The clue was actually on the front page, “Magi event” is an anagram. :P
So the gauntlet has been thrown! Very well, I accept your challenge! But note this……no matter what you may throw at me, I am more than a match for it!
*puts on helmet*
It is time….strike me with all your fury!
….Well?! What are you waiting for! Do it! See if you can best me!
I bet this is an April fool’s joke :c
SMT4 or some sort of Monster Hunting game (you know, armor)?
Front page says: Magi Event.
The Magi game is for the 3DS….so, I’m just basing it off that. But I can’t recall anyone using a gauntlet.
I’d wear these.
Is that the Fap Master 3000?
I always thought the majority was right handed. You sure this is the right product in the ‘Master’ series?
A challenge aimed for true masters.
If it comes with a free bottle of vaseline, it might sell relatively well.
the perverted face of your chun li avatar makes the comment perfect. XD
If it is what I think it is, it would be really cruel if this was an April’s Fools. I hope Ishaan’s latest tweet is genuine. :(
We wouldn’t play a joke on our readers, that’s just mean
How come I’m the only one who thought this was about a New version of the Power Glove?
Probably beacuse there’s no need for one, seeing as how modern motion controls are a lot better and a viable control scheme compared to the Power Glove. =P
I know you were joking, by the way.
I wasn’t. And while we’re at it, neither was d19xx.
Demon’s Souls 2??!! Maybe some other medieval RPGs coming to current gen console, I’m nervous and excited…..
It’s the new Powerglove of course!
“it’s so bad!”
Obviously it’s Persona 5
Get hyped, people
My money is on SMTIV which is what everyone thinks at first guess, but I think it could also be BD:FF because some classes use gaunlets like the paladin but only time will tell.
Edit: now I am sure its SMTIV remember how atlus likes to screw with people: http://www.siliconera.com/2011/12/12/guess-atlus-usas-next-game-hint-it-begins-with-a-g/
Clearly this is teasing Game of Thrones 3DS. Atlus!
Winter is coming…
Speaking of which, ever read about a Game of Thrones drinking game?
It’s set up for you to get an ulcer from alcohol poisoning in less then an episode.
No… does it have to do with nudity? Seems like an easy one for GoT.
Also…”Magi Event”? I have the answer:
Maagi magi magiro! It’s something Magiranger related.
Could it be Magi: the labyrinth of magic for the 3ds is gonna be localized?
I think we’re being had!
Okay… “Sooner than you think” means that this is a title that we already know exists and this is a localization announcement being teased. The article is tagged 3DS, so we can narrow our guesses to 3DS titles that we know exist. The gauntlet then narrows our search further to something containing, well, gauntlets. Anything sword/sorcery really. The title “Magi Event” likewise points towards swords/sorcery (specifically the sorcery part).
Within those parameters I’m coming up with:
Etrian Odyssey V
Bravely Default: Flying Fairy
Professor Layton X Ace Attorney (less obvious, but it does take place in a world with both swords and sorcery)
Magi: The Labryrinth of Magic
Okay, so what off of that list seems most likely? I’m gonna put Magi at number one. The title of the post fits it best (perfectly, really) and it’s a Namco Bandai title. Namco Bandai has shown an unprecedented drive to localize even niche titles this past year, so a small game like Magi is totally believable. The counter-point is that this is a REALLY small title. Like, I don’t know a blamed thing about this game small.
Second is SMT IV. I’m picking this because Atlus has done announcement teases in the past, most recently with Growlanser and Gugnir. Also, that’s a game that we’re 100% certain is going to be localized so it’s more likely to be getting teased than some of these other titles that may or may not ever make it. Also worth considering is that the SMT IV marketing has shown that sci-fi gauntlets are the device by which demons are summoned this time around.
Third and lastly, I’m picking Professor Layton X Ace Attorney. For no reason than that maybe if I wish hard enough it’ll happen.
Magi is an anime/manga series, which is why you know nothing about the game in particular but I don’t think that would be the case until the series is know in the west, also its not that because no one wears gauntlets in it.
hahaha nice one… got me for a few seconds there
Metal gear rising set in the Middle ages. Instead of Raiden having a cyborg body, he has wizard powers instead. He still gotta collect the left hands of dudes this time being templar knights or something like that.
Oh and everything is in Ye Olde English.
…..Did I win?
It would be REALLY weird for this to be an Atlus title, if only because Atlus has a penchant for doing all of its teases through their own sources (Facebook, Atlus Faithful email list, etc.)
Of course, April 1st sounds like a great day to change stuff up, and I’ve already managed to get my gullible butt tricked once today…
So if it is indeed the SMT IV localization announcement tease, I suppose this charade will continue until the 16th when Soul Hackers is released and we see the localized version of the SMT IV video that should be included on the SH cartridge. My guess is that Atlus’ hand is being forced a bit on the announcement front because of that little extra.
I bet they recorded dialogue for Soul Hackers and SMT IV during the same time frame, hence the “sooner than you think”. They are going to avoid the Pokemon XY timeframe, for sure, so my guess is late August to mid September.
That’s what the teaser signifies, actually: Atlus’ hand being forced.
Okay, probably not, but it’d be funny if that was the logic for using a gauntlet even over there actually being one in SMT IV. Well, I’d laugh anyway.
I guess it´s a pre order bonus :x
Man, I am dying to know what this is about. I hope when I wake up tomorrow, the beans will have been spilled.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
Localization of SMT4 or Bravely Default.
Or…Final Fantasy 14 3ds lol
The cats out of the proverbial COMP this was for SMT IV – http://www.siliconera.com/2013/04/02/shin-megami-tensei-iv-coming-to-north-america-this-summer/
“Magi Event” was an anagram for Megaten IV
