Today Japanese developer Compile Heart opened a new teaser website with a countdown simply starting from “3.”
According to the accompanying announcement, the number is an indication of days, which means that the reveal is going to be on Thursday, February 22nd. This coincides with the usual publishing of Japanese magazines Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation, which means that it’s quite possible that the new game will leak before they reach the newsstands.
There is no further information on the nature of the game, but Compile Heart is known for many series including Hyperdimension Neptunia, Fairy Fencer, Record of Agarest War, and more. That being said, they also work on several new IPs like the upcoming Death End re;Quest, so it could be either a new game of an established IP, a remaster/remake, or a completely new game.
Speaking of remasters, recently Compile Heart announced Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1+ for PS4, which is basically a remaster of a remaster of the first Neptunia game.
Compile Heart is a wholly owned subsidiary of Idea Factory, so whatever the new game is, it’ll come under the Idea Factory umbrella, and might possibly be localized by Idea Factory International.
Of course, we’ll let you know here on DualShockers as soon as we hear more.
