During the Tokyo Game Show, Koei Tecmo published a trailer for an unannounced title. There wasn’t much to the actual video and the game itself has been shrouded in mystery. However, according to the official website, Koei Tecmo will be properly unveiling the game next Wednesday in Tokyo. Company president Kenji Matsubara and producer Hisashi Koinuma (Samurai Warriors 2, Samurai Warrios 3) will be attending.

Some have speculated that the new title might be a Fist of the North Star project. A few games in the series have launched on the DS and Wii, but it remains to be seen which platform(s) this new game will land on. If it is Nintendo related, we’ll keep you up-to-date.
