At the end of a Death End Re;Quest behind-the-scenes video recently released by Compile Heart, President Norihisa Kochiwa had an interesting reveal to make.

He showcased nine files belonging to nine different projects planned at the Japanese developer.

Five of those projects are JRPGs, the first of which has a specific theme, “desert.” Kochiwa-san even went as fas as showing artwork created for the game, and you can check it out at the bottom of the post.

Here is the full list of projects as they were presented (about some he provided a few details, while some were just mentioned).

  1. Death End Re;Quest.
  2. New RPG with “desert” theme. Development is already in progress.
  3. New RPG.
  4. New RPG with a new creator involved.
  5. New RPG.
  6. New RPG Involving the whole company.
  7. New app.
  8. ????? (this isn’t a game).
  9. New Eshishin No Kizuna mobile game with a new character.

No further information about these games was provided, including platforms or release window, but many appear to be still in the planning phase for now, and only the first JRPG has been explicitly mentioned as being already in active development.

For now, we’ll have to be content with the new art, and with Death End Re;Quest, of which you can enjoy the another recent gameplay videoone from the day before, a trailer focusing on battle mechanicsanother trailer showing more of the battle systemand the charming opening cutscene.
