Akira Toriyama is one of the most legendary Japanese creatives around. He created Dragon Ball, after all, but video game fans will also remember his contributions to Dragon Quest and Chrono Trigger over the years.

Now, one of his lesser-known works is seemingly getting the video game treatment, with Bandai Namco teasing the Sand Land Project.

Sand Land was published in Weekly Shonen Jump back in the year 2000 with a very brief run of 14 chapters. Bandai Namco offer the following summary of its setting and story:

“In a desert world where both demons and humans suffer from an extreme water shortage, Beelzebub, the prince of demons, and Rao, a small-town sheriff, form a tag-team and set off on an adventure in search of the Phantom Lake somewhere in the desert.”

More information is expected to arrive on December 17th and given the existence of an English language teaser we can likely expect a global launch of whatever it may be. We’ll be sure to keep you informed if it’s Switch-bound!
