its new game project, tentatively titled Xblaze

promising to unveil this "Secret Title" in summer 2012, according to ANN
's report. However, the website is also displaying a countdown that will reach zero one week from now, on March 30... So I'd say that's when the game will be unveiled, for a summer release
