tri-Ace & Real Style have just released a teaser site for a new title they are working on!

Real Style are a Japanese entertainment company created by former Koei President Kiyoshi Komatsu. At this stage it looms as some form of adventure drama game. No guarantee it will be a console title though, even a web-based or mobile game may be possible.

When more information is available we'll update it here.
