Earlier this year, eccentric game developer Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro and Arc System Works announced a collaboration, The Missing, with a curious little teaser trailer. Earlier today, they finally showed off a few screenshots from the game, and have added a new subtitle.

The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories is the new mouthful of a title for the collaboration. Judging from the screenshots, The Missing looks to be a 2D puzzle-platformer. In one of the screenshots you can see a player character (presumably Macfield) jumping across chandeliers. You can see a couple of luminescent food items, (which could be healing or powerups), as well as an owl (which could be a collectible).

Other screenshots show someone being electrocuted by the old “exposed wire in water” setup, as well as two lovebirds sitting by a fire.

The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories will be hitting sometime this year.
