Is Capcom about to announce a new Dragon's Dogma?

UPDATE: Well, that didn't last long. Capcom isn't about to announce a new Dragon's Dogma, it turns out, with the announcement instead pertaining to a mobile app aimed towards young girls. A leak on Famitsu, picked up by Siliconera, helped clear up the situation a little.

ORIGINAL STORY: Is Capcom going to announce an all-new Dragon's Dogma next Tuesday? A teaser for the enigmatically titled 'Project Palm' has just emerged, and the single-shot of a light-scarred hand has been enough to get some hopes up over on NeoGAF where links have been made to Capcom's much-loved action RPG which recently got the remaster treatment on PC.

There's certainly reason for some hope - the pawns within Dragon's Dogma, emotionless characters that follow the player character and are central to the game's plot, carry marks across their palms that look awfully similar to that featured in the teaser image - but as ever it's best to exercise some caution. After all, mobile games also fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, so this could be far from a full-blown Dragon's Dogma sequel.

The recent title update for open world fantasy role-playing game Dragon's Dogma has been found to corrupt game saves, Capcom has warned.

In some cases the patch caused Dragon's Dogma and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen save date to become corrupted, meaning the game will no longer save or load progress, the company wrote in a post on Capcom Unity.

It suggested players copy their existing save data to an external storage device or the cloud whenever possible, "especially if you are picking up the game for the first time in awhile or switching over toDark Arisenfor the first time".
