Compile Heart Is Counting Down to Something

By Chad Awkerman

March 24, 2011

Earlier this week, this countdown was teased in Dengeki, but now the teaser site is finally up and at ’em. Compile Heart – the developer behind niche titles like Record of Agarest War and Hyperdimension Neptunia – seems to be working on a new title and, from the looks of it, it’s right up Neptunia‘s alley. Perhaps this is a sequel, or another play on the gaming industry in a brand new title. In the image above you’ll see a handheld device in the ground, which is very clearly a nod to Sony’s forthcoming NGP.

Let’s go out on a limb here and theorize for a moment, shall we? This could either be another round similar to the Console Wars in Neptunia, except with handhelds. Or, perhaps, could this possibly be teasing a Compile Heart title coming to Sony’s new portable system? I know, that’s stretching it, eh? I guess only time will tell, we still have 489 hours and some change to wait before a reveal.
