Bayonetta
What the Hell is Project Omega?
Written Thursday, September 13, 2012 By Richard Walker
View author's profile

Here's something pretty curious. SEGA has opened a new teaser site for something known only as Project Omega. On the site, there's images of what appears to be a demonic lady sporting various red tattoos.

The teaser site's homepage also has a countdown that's working towards September 20th, which is presumably when SEGA will have its big reveal for the mysterious project. We're going to start speculating now though, and say that it could be Bayonetta 2.

While the lady in the teaser images doesn't particularly resemble Bayonetta, we seriously want this to be the long-awaited sequel. Even if Project Omega isn't a return for the lithe Umbra witch, this could be one to watch. Expect to find out more next week. What do you think Project Omega could be?

The katakana in the first image says 'Demon Drive', I think. Does that help?

@3 - That does help... It could be a brand new IP then. Interesting, thanks.

Beat me to it, Floodclaw! I'll second your translation, though. Whatever it is, it looks purty.

it reads 'Demon Tribe' (or may be using a coined word, 'Demon Trive'). @3 that katakana isn't 'Drive';) ex Jet Set Radio team, Mr. Kikuchi and Ueda at Sega, is handling the project.
The teaser site has a hint. when we tweet on the site, '@SEGA_Apps' is added to the tweet. it's the official Twitter account for Sega's mobile games...

@7: That's what confused me. A literal translation would be Trive, but that made no sense, so I went with Drive over Tribe. You sure it's supposed to be Tribe?

Actually, sacra is right. I misread the left-most upward portion of 'ra' to be the iteration marks to change 'to' to 'do'... bleary-eyed this early in the morning.

If we're still going with the Bayonetta idea, omega is used in physics (upper-case for the right ascension of the ascending node, lower-case for the argument of pertubation) when working with orbits and trying to calculate the... umbra (shadow, for those who forget their high school physics).

So, does Omega + Umbra = Bayonetta? Maybe a mobile version according to sacra's tip?

@8 yes. if translating it as 'Drive', first word must be 'ド' reads 'DO'.
no idea for the official English title but Japanese developers like no sense titles. haha

Im sure its Bayonetta.
The eye tatoo(eyes story based),the normal skull with the star and the demon skull with a moon(for the two factions).
It was also stated some time back,that a prequel could be the second Bayonetta game.
Prequel or 2 ,its Bayonetta and im fucking happy.

Honestly this might be a bit of a stretch, but anywho. If you look at the eye in the Umbra Witch symbol it looks similar to the eye in these images. A bit of a stretch, but when you want a sequel/prequel to a game, you'll look for anything.

The way It reads in the first picture is rather confusing... Dont know if I'm reading it right though ...demon drive ... Or demon tribe... Hmmm

Either way it's not a great name for a game...

Hopefully it's bayonetta related.

Bayonetta 2? I'm not really seeing the link, scantily clad, dark haired woman aside.

I'd love it if it was though... Eagerly waiting for more info!

Looks great! And I'm not talking about the tits. They look great too, but a sequel or new IP looks great.

Judging by the fact that Nintendo is publishing Bayonetta 2, it doesn't look like it will ever come to anything but Wii U.

Now we can only hope for some kind of Bayonetta spin-off. Maybe playing as another character?

Well i wont buy a WiiU for sure.
I just hope for a Prequel then, or for a new Game.
Demon Drive is a cool name for a game ,and maybe its the answer from Sega,that Bayoneta 2 will be for WiiU only LOL.
I think Demon Drive was a Dante's move...
