[Updated] SEGA Teases New Title Called Project 575

Here’s one of those “what do we have here?” moments where I really have no idea what to expect out of this announcement. SEGA recently uploaded a video to a brand new YouTube channel made specifically for an upcoming game/application/something-or-other known as Project 575. Take a look at the teaser trailer:

So, since there’s nothing else to go on at this point, and my knowledge of the Japanese language is a little rusty (nonexistent,) here’s what I’m speculating: Project 575 is a music/rhythm game of some sort, potentially for mobile devices. If not, it could also be a Japan-only game coming out that will cross-promote another entertainment medium. For instance, the popular J-Pop group named Perfume has a song titled “575,” so this could perhaps be a collaboration between the two. Interestingly enough, haikus are framed within the popular 5-7-5 structure; but that seems like too far of a stretch. Never say never, though.

Additionally, SEGA has launched a teaser site which you can visit by clicking here. I expect whatever announcements the team plans on making in the near future will be posted there first, but be sure to check back here for more as this story develops.

update: Thanks to Google+ user 池沢雪杜, we have a rough translation of the discussion between the two characters, named Azuki (in red) and Maccha (in green). I appreciate the assist, pal!

Azuki: Ah! This amazing day has finally come! Are you ready?

Maccha: Why are you raising the tension by yourself?

Azuki: My name is Mazoka Azuki! Please call me Azuki! This person here is called…

Maccha: Don’t involve me. I hate annoying things like this.

Azuki: What? What are you saying? Hurry up and introduce yourself to everyone already.

Maccha: …My name is Kobayashi Maccha. Ah. I’ll especially permit you to call me Maccha-Sama.

Azuki: More humbler…Anyway, from here on we’ll let you see our High school life, our everyday life, and various other episodes…

Maccha: …from the darkness that they reside in. We are Magical Girls whose everyday consists of intense fighting.

Azuki: THATS WRONG RIGHT?!? Ahh, because you’ve said that time will run out, won’t it? Please come back to this site to play again, okay?

Maccha: It’s already finished, lets laugh(?) together.

Azuki: Don’t say those things…

Together: Stay Tuned!

What do you folks make of Project 575? Do you have a guess as to what type of project SEGA is working on? Who here can translate what’s being said by the two ladies shown in the teaser? Let us know the usual place, and don’t forget to like IGXPro on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or give us the ‘ol +1 on Google+. If you can’t get enough of my shenanigans, (who could blame you?) you can check me out @GamingsNirvana, or add +VinnyParisi to your circles.
