In the latest edition of V Jump, the magazine’s preview page briefly presents readers with a new title: Project V. Square Enix and Shonen Jump are partnering together to develop the title.

“Square Enix [and V Jump] begin ‘Project V’, which will create a next-generation blockbuster! Perhaps your ideas will become reality?!”

The DS is a reasonable candidate the game’s release, but we’ll just have to wait for further details to emerge.
