Nippon Ichi Software announced a new PlayStation Vita game called World’s Longest 5 minutes with a teaser website showing a bit of some Dragon Quest-like nostalgia that used to bring us nightmares. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]
Those of you who played the Super Famicom era Dragon Quest games might still have nightmares upon seeing the above screen, which is basically a message indicating that your save data has been corrupted. This was quite a common occurrence back in the day, as a simple nudge to the console could cause such happenings.
The Nippon Ichi teaser site for World’s Longest 5 Minutes features the above character sprite of what looks like a traditional Dragon Quest hero, and it also has a countdown. Once the 5 minutes are up, it shows us the dreaded save data corruption message shown above.
It also shows us the message that more information will be revealed in the March 31 issue of Famitsu magazine. Hmm, I wonder if it’ll be a game that involves clearing tasks within 5 minutes or you have to start over with a new data.
World’s Longest 5 Minutes will release in Japan on July 28, 2016 for PlayStation Vita.
