New Square Enix teaser site gives Jan. 8 date

Gloops! Gloops! What a great name. They say it's a combination of global and loop. I like to keep it simple -- it rhymes with poop and sounds funny. Destiny-viii.jp is a new teaser page posted today. This co-production between mobile game publisher gloops and Square Enix is coming January 8, 2014. It's probably a mobile thing, right? Any ideas? Does the URL give you any clues?

Review: Colossatron: Massive World Threat photo
Review: Colossatron: Massive World Threat
by Chris Carter

In the modern era of videogames that tends to take itself seriously a bit too often, I occasionally enjoy kicking back with ridiculous, over-the-top games. Games that remind me of the '90s -- where teenage turtles and Super Sentai squads reigned supreme, and metal theme songs were commonplace while you sipped your choice Ecto Cooler-flavored Hi-C beverage.

So if I told you that Halfbrick's Colossatron featured a giant robot dragon from space, hell-bent on systematically destroying every major city in the world, while a plucky news team watched with bated breath, would you be interested?
