Namco Bandai’s mystery countdown site, launched this Monday, is counting down to a new Digimon game for PSP, according to an early leak from next week’s issue of V Jump.

Artwork featured in the magazine depicts a residential area in Tokyo. The game is listed as an RPG. Its name is a working title, currently known only as Digimon. Suzuhito Yasuda, character designer for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor, is doing character design on the Digimon title.

Thanks, Andriasang.

Update 11:12pm: The game is called Digimon World Re: Digitize, according to one Japanese blogger. It’s a role-playing game starring a 14 year-old boy and his partner Digimon, Agumon. It takes place in both the Digital World and Real World, features fully animated battles.

It will launch on PSP in 2012.

    Digimon is back? Hmm. I kinda hope it’s an original cast of characters as opposed to the older Digimon cast.

      @Revorse: I always liked Tamers best.

        @Sal Romano: So that’s why you chose the picture? Lol. But I do agree. Tamers always had a “deeper” story in my opinion. Especially the last episode. So I’ll have to rethink my answer. Either Tamers or Original.

      @go-go-boy: I just finished replaying all 3 Volumes of dot hack//G.U. A new dot hack game would have been incredible Lol. None of that //LINK (handheld) crap though, dot hack needs a true next gen revamp.

      @K00lKat: Frontier bit monkey butt. The show was never about turning into Digimon. I always enjoyed the interaction between human and partner.
