Earlier this year Bandai Namco's Katsuhiro Harada appeared in a Nintendo Direct broadcast to announce free-to-play Wii U title Project Treasure. It was described as a four-player co-op action title, as you battle through stages and tackle dangerous foes; there was no footage, however.

In today's Japanese Nintendo Direct that changed, with a short trailer showing the game in action. It looks pretty decent, and we see plenty of fast-paced melee combat among the four characters on display. It's a relatively brief look, but we're promised more details in the Summer.

It'll be interesting to see how this shapes up, and Bandai Namco is certainly an old hand with the free-to-play model - there'll likely be plenty of micro-transactions.
