Welcome to the world of Japanese publishers.
I'm probably wrong but I always thought they did it to coincide with Famitsu or other media coverage. Probably just do it to be bastards.

Is there any specific reason to think this is a western announcement?

If this is a countdown for God Eater, then I can only hope it also means God Eater DLC for Zestiria will be released the same day this is announced, lol.

It's not hard to see why they would use countdowns. Gets people talking and speculating allowing the announcement to have some hype behind it before whatever it is is announced.

It's obviously somewhat effective otherwise they wouldn't do it. Now if the announcement is worth the countdown is obviously another matter entirely but it's not hard to see why companies like Bamco do countdowns like this.

It says 'game'. I'd find it a bit odd if it turned out to be God Eater 2. It'll probably be Resurrection.

In a box
Cooking Mama rights secured confirmed.

Edit: There used to be 'internet art' stuff like this years ago that you could get lost in, and this is all it would be, except for a few mystery hidden links. Now it's viral marketing for a commercial product.
I read that as Cockring Mama

You already know. After 2 years of incessant begging, I've already stopped hoping for the series to ever come over.if they wanted to do it they had the momentum and timing with the God Eater Expo, or the God Eater anime panel in the west to do it. This is not it.

After being on the watch and waiting for as long as I have for that trademark to come to something, along with the Resurrection one at that, I am not gonna keep doing this to myself.

The fact that THIS MANY PEOPLE want it to be GE, and they still haven't done anything about it baffles me though.
Agreed there's really plenty of demand for it and it's also crazy that they didn't do it when they had a lot of hype ramping up.

#MysteriousGame is social media marketing gone wrong tbh. Rule #1 to hashtags, make them short and memorable. Rule #2, make them relevant to your content. Rule #3, don't use them if you don't understand them.

Seriously, if this ends up being something else they must really hate us
At this point I'm more concerned with how they're planning on pulling it off. More people want GE 2. It'd be amazing if we could get both games at the same time, or one shortly after the other. But if they announce GE2 it means all this wait was..for what exactly? They had far better opportunities to announce GE2.

On one hand, being a western teasing should not lead us to the usual mobile disappointment, so there is that. On the other hand, it's a little harder to get excited, at least for me.

The God Eater theory is interesting, but would Bandai Namco do such a tease just for this IP ? I guess they could have been motivated by MH4U selling one million in the West, but this is the result of several years of release and support.
