Nippon Ichi is currently teasing a new title with a video and teaser site, with a full reveal coming in the near future. We don't have to wait for that though, as a Japanese retailer has already spoiled the surprise.
Biccamera listed The Wicked King and the Noble Hero from Nippon Ichi earlier today, but the listing has since been taken down. It looks like they posted their info too early, explaining the yank. The damage has already been done, though, and we full details on what the game will be about. Check out the description below, courtesy of a translation via Gematsu.
