Akaneiros: Demon Hunters -- new ARPG by American McGee

Not a lot of info known so far, except that it's coming to PCs and Tablets (one presumes iPads). Here's the exclusive coverage from Kotaku.

Akaneiro is an action role-playing game that takes players to a hand-painted world inspired by ancient demons and late Edo era Japan. Players join the The Order of Akane, an elite group of demon hunters, and attempt to rid a village of yokai. The blood of slaughtered yokai turned into crystalline shards called "Karma Shards", which are what the Order of Akane harvest. There is apparently a variety of weapons that can be upgraded as well.
Any game by the creator of Alice should at least pique most folks interest, I would think...

We literally know nothing about the game mechanics except "Action RPG"

You broke my sarcasm meter!

My curiosity is far more than piqued. I want to see what this will become. Like, now.

I loved Alice: Madness Returns. Although the combat gets monotone after a while, the story and art are just beautiful. The Cardbridge just took my breath away.
