Polish horror game developer Bloober Team, known for series like Layers of Fear, The Medium and Konami's upcoming release Silent Hill 2, has announced it's working on a new project for Nintendo platforms.

In an interview earlier this week, Bloober referenced a title called 'Project M' which has a budget "significantly smaller" than its usual projects and is being developed "in cooperation with the world's best game creators for Nintendo platforms". Here's a translation (via ResetEra):

"Project M, although its budget is significantly smaller than the games we are working on at Bloober Team, is extremely important due to our long-term plans. In addition, we are working on it in cooperation with the world's best game creators for Nintendo platforms, so we cannot afford to create just a decent game," Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno told PAP Biznes.

This all times in with Nintendo's disturbing reveal of a new horror game called 'Emio', which it is seemingly publishing. Keep in mind, Bloober hasn't confirmed what exactly 'Project M' is at this stage, but unsurprisingly, there's already been some speculation about the two announcements being linked.

One other part of the same interview has also been highlighted on social media noting how this new Bloober project will appear under its 'Broken Mirror Games' brand (thanks, LuigiBlood):

"The first announcements of Project M will appear later this year, and the title itself will open our second-party portfolio under the Broken Mirror Games brand"

At this stage, there's also been no official confirmation, or anything similar, suggesting the two announcements are related. Notably, Bloober's announcement references "Nintendo platforms" in general, so there's a possibility its project could be targeting Nintendo's Switch "successor" which is scheduled to be announced this fiscal year.
