Back then, SEGA's European development gaffer, Gary Dunn, revealed that the publisher had established a brand new development team in Solihull, Birmingham. (That's just up the road from us: hey guys!)

That studio now has a name: Hardlight. The identity was revealed by an eagle-eyed NeoGAF poster who spotted a recruitment post for the West Midlands studio on According to the listing, Hardlight is a new "boutique game development studio" with a focus on "creating high quality, innovative game experiences for both current and future platforms".

As previously announced, the studio's first project will be for PlayStation Vita. The game is pitched as a "unique action adventure" designed exclusively for the handheld, though, naturally, additional details are scarce. Still, that sounds exciting doesn't it? Mmmmhmmm.
