Sega has had a teaser site up with the image above, two silhouettes standing in front of the numbers 575. With an update to the website, the two silhouettes have been revealed as the characters Azuki Masaoka (Voiced by Yuka Otsubo) and Maccha Kobayashi (Voiced by Ayaka Ohashi), part of the new multi-media project 575.


The project will include apps, games, manga, and anime, with the iOS app “Utayomi 575″ being the first to arrive on July 26th in Japan. The app will let users enter their own Haiku or Senryu, a Japanese poetry structure with 17 syllables (structured in a 5-7-5 sequence). With the Vocaloid technology, Azuki or Maccha can then read the poetry aloud. Users will also be able to easily share their creations on a message board, alongside several popular Vocaloid producers who will be submitting their own music.


A PS Vita game titled “Utagumi 575″ is also planned for 2014, and is said to be a cross between rhythm games and puzzle games. The user-created 575 lyrics is planned to be featured in the game as well, so keep an eye out for the demo at the 2013 Tokyo Game Show!


There will be more updates and information through their website, so be sure to check back!
