The famed Capcom designer (know for various fighting games and Devil May Cry 4) is working on a new project for 2017. He released the above tweet on Twitter, stating that work on a new game was far enough that he will announce it next year. This is great news, as many enjoy the games he works on. I do wonder what game he is working on, with many hoping for a new Devil May Cry title being this mystery game.
Regardless though, it is great to see him work on new projects within Capcom.
