Project Ringo Updated

"Whats Mean 247?" Yet more mysterious teasing from Sega!

As Ant predicted, Sega's curious Project Ringo site received an update today, replacing the Flash animation teasing a date with a different Flash animation teasing a different date. Good work Sega!

Despite not revealing much, the website throws up lots of mathematical equations to which the answer is 247, presumably meaning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, although it's not impossible for it to mean the 24th of July as a potential date.

And that's pretty much it. You can still make out the silhouette of a mysterious character and there's more apples to be seen, but we're no closer to knowing what Project Ringo is all about. Personally I'd like to see a cutesy MMORPG based around 16-bit-style characters, but we'll have to wait for more information when the next update lands on March the 12th.

Speculation on a new IP when there's not even a genuine title? My, this is something new.

Yep, looks like it. I just thought though - has it actually been confirmed for a particular platform? I don't remember seeing a Wii or DS logo anywhere, although they're the surest fits for it.

Can't wait for more info, but does anyone else think that "what's mean 247" may just be a bit of bad Engrish, rather than a riddle?

@Prosody: maybe, but it could easily be an attempt from Sega to widen the casual demographics on other consoles - although I suppose this is unlikely. Maybe it's multiformat?

interesting... to me the character looks a bit like a nightmaren in this one, when in the last one a sonic character....
