I know what series I'd like it to be, but less so now that Igarishi's gone.
I thought that the presence of Yuki Kaji might be a clue but most of the big names he's worked on have been for Atlus (Fire Emblem, Shin Megami Tensei) or a Final Fantasy game.
... unless Konami got the rights to Haikyuu and Kenma is a playable character.
Another Castlevania pachinko machine?
