Update:

Since it has been guessed as the PSP game XSEED is bringing next year, I'll be using this topic to discuss that game, English Detective Mysteria.

Quote

——End of 19th century, England…..
Illuminating the London night streets covered in deep fog, are gas lamps and the moon breaking through the clouds.
Ladies, do be wary of the evening streets.
As crooks and mysterious cases lurking amidst the streets may target you.
A big case within the hands of the reputable English police, Scotland Yard, is still spilling onto the streets. Once involved with the case…. prepare yourself and hop in for the ride.
A mastermind detective.
A fearless thief.
Now, once the Big Ben bell echoes within the streets of London, is when the curtains rise for love and adventure…..!!—



Quote

Japanese storywriters come up with interesting settings for otome games taking established tropes and giving them a girls romance twist. We saw the game where you can fall in love with the Knights of the Round last week. English Detective Mysteria from Senran Kagura maker, Marvelous AQL, has players flirt with Sherlock Holmes… Jr.

Watson Jr. is in English Detective Mysteria too and he’s also a pretty boy. Developer, Karin Entertainment, added characters from other mystery novel series like Sara Marple who is the niece of a recurring Agatha Christie character Jane Marple. Lupin Jr. is the son of gentlemanly thief Arsène Lupin. The two Japanese detectives Kenichirou Akechi and Seiji Kobayashi are tied to Edogawa Rampo’s series of detective novels that feature Kogoro Akechi and his kid sidekick Kobayashi.

So, now that you understand the connections in this massive mystery novel crossover what’s going on in English Detective Mysteria? The game is set at the end of the 19th century in London and you play as Emily who lives with her butler Pendelton. Both of Emily’s parents were killed when she was young and now she wants to learn the truth about their deaths.

Quote

English Detective Mysteria is one big mystery novel mashup in an otome game. Emily, the main character, lives with her Butler in London and is searching for answers about the death of her parents.

You can chat with Sherlock Holmes Jr. and William Watson Jr. offspring from the Sherlock Holmes novels. Johann Lupin Jr. is the faux son of French thief Arsène Lupin. The Japanese detective Kenichirou Akechi is inspired by Edogawa Rampo’s books. Who will you partner with to solve Emily’s mystery?

They're not talking about SC, because Tom talks about that on the earlier paragraph.

Not Corpse Party, too. Quite possibly, it could be Brandish: Dark Revenant.

Well... thinking about it, since PSP releases aren't easy to do nowadays, I doubt that the PSP game would be something out of the blue. I would assume that there would have to be some type of following behind it for XSEED to release it due the gamble of releasing a PSP game, but then again I don't really know what goes in XSEED's mind when they decide to work on a game...

You might be right. But then again, if we get a good enough deal on a game that some of us in the office particularly like and push for, out of the blue is VERY possible -- that's how Corpse Party came to be, after all!

Anyway, the answers you seek maaaaay be in the holiday card image at the above-posted link. Examine it closely, and let the guessing commence. Definitive answers will come... in many months. Mwa ha ha. ;)

My guess in the other topic:

The stick reminds me of the Monkey King... I have nothing further on that... The large head looks kinda like Suda artwork, so I'm guessing the Lily game for PS4? Little generic head looks too generic to make a guess...

I was kinda thinking that too, but when I looked at artwork none are holding just plain poles... It is supposed to be based off loosely off the Monkey King or something, wasn't it?

I'm not too sure about that, but it's because I can't really tell what it is at all.

Do you see that disk thing right above where the hand is? I was looking at some pictures of Estelle's staff and I didn't see anything resembling that on her staves. It's always possible that it could be from some other picture of Estelle or Estelle wielding some other staff, but I'm not entirely sure that it is her staff.

To me personally, it looks like the hilt and cross-guard of some sort of blade with the person holding the actually blade part (probably holding the scabbard with the blade inside).

I'm not exactly sure how credible I can be on this, but those are just my two-cents on it.

That's too soon to say as when haven't completely figured out what weapon it is (if it is a weapon) or who's wielding it.

If it is a hilt of a sword, the hilt is kind of long so it might be a two-handed weapon.

I'm an idiot... upon looking at it even more, it doesn't look like a sword...

When making that image it became clear that's not a hand. It's a tail:

That's looks right LoliPantsu, so I guess that means we covered another one of the silhouettes...

That leaves one more and it's case closed.

The only problem with this one is that slightly spiky haired people aren't a unique thing, but he/she does appear to be wearing something with a collar since his neck isn't visible, at least that's what I think.

Do we know anything about any possible PSP game it could be?

Also, about the game, not sure if it helps much, but the game needs to have someone at XSEED supporting it like Tom said earlier in this thread and according to this: https://www.facebook...otal_comments=4

All that's left is the PSP game. We had to get one game for each platform, and so we did so far:

- Shinovi Versus (Vita);
- Akiba's Trip 2 (PS3 and Vita).

Now, the PSP game is the only one left.

Not to mention, in that picture, his neck has a line between his chin and the collar which isn't in the silhouette so no dice there. Besides, didn't XSEED say they weren't going to localize Sachiko's Birthday or am I thinking of some other Corpse Party game?

Also, I checked some random list of characters on Corpse Party Wiki and none of them seemed to fit the silhouette... it's just weird how half of his hair is spiky, yet the other half isn't....

I am fairly stumped as far as what the PSP reveal could be. It's definitely not Corpse Party or Brandish. If you zoom in on the image it looks like a young man. But at this time I haven't found an outfit that works with the hairstyle - similar one is in Last Ranker but the outfit's out and the game'd make no sense anyway.
