Artoon plans role-playing title for next-gen platforms

Japanese developer Artoon has revealed that it is working on a 3D role-playing game for next-generation console hardware, having recently completed work on Xbox platformer Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space.

The company's recruitment page has been updated to advertise for planners, designers and programming staff to work on the new product, no additional details of which have been revealed.

Although Artoon doesn't mention which next-gen console it is targeting with the game, the company's close relationship with Microsoft - publisher of both of the Xbox-exclusive Blinx titles - tends to suggest that it is probably working on Xbox 2.

Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space is released in the UK on Xbox today.
