Wow: Square Enix Japan's epic 'Bahamut' countdown timer

Remember awhile back when we pointed to a trademark for something called "Blood of Bahamut" by Square Enix? We hoped it was a Bahamut Lagoon remake. We're still not sure what the hell it is, but we now know when we will.

As of right now, this epic countdown timer at bahamut.jp show 5 days and 4 hours until ending time. We're sure that then this page will contain details behind the awesome image of a beast with city and mountain on his back. Reminds me of Shadow of the Colossus a bit, but I'm sure it has nothing to do with that.

I've heard talk of a new PSP game. Maybe that's what Blood of Bahamut is -- a PSP port or something.

I'm still pushing toward a remake of the Japanese only Super Famicom game Bahamut Lagoon, or some variant of. Check out the tiny icon for the web page where it says "countdown" in Japanese. Doesn't that look like a 16-bit sprite head to you?

Any ideas, folks?
