Hironobu Sakaguchi - has moustache, will game

Remember that mystifying trademark that Nintendo registered a while back? Turns out it's not the subtitle of the next Mario adventure (as we half-jokingly predicted) but an RPG from the creator of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi.

Nintendo has confirmed the launch of a new Web site dedicated to the game (alas, in Japanese) which has a logo and little else; the piece of looping music is gorgeous, though.

Sakaguchi's current company Mistwalker has hardly distinguished itself so far, with the company's range of RPGs largely failing to gain the same recognition as his more famous creation.

Still, if Nintendo are helping out then it might just turn out to be a game worth keeping tabs on for fans of Japanese RPGs.
