At first when I saw this teaser in the latest Official Nintendo Magazine I thought it was a just a silly way of advertising for Luigi's Mansion on 3DS. Luigi's Mansion isn't scary, Nintendo, I thought to myself. Upon further consideration, this teaser doesn't seem to be for Luigi's Mansion at all. It's for an actual new game -- a scary game -- and Nintendo thinks it's big enough to get people excited for.
The teaser reads as thus, "Are you scared? You should be." This statement is accompanied by a photograph of what appears to be a large engine or pipe-system of sorts. If I had to guess I'd say it looks like a submarine or some sort of large boat, but it could be a boiler room of some kind on an old building. Not necessarily a scary setting, until you say, "This is scary." Then it conjures up images of Freddie Kruger or ghosts or gnomes or something.
Nintendo's Official Magazines says to look forward to a "World Exclusive" first look at a new game coming in their issue next month, coming February 13. What the game could be is really anyone's guess, but if the magazine thinks it's worth a big exclusive then odds are it may be watching out for. What could it be?
