Square Enix’s New PS4 Exclusive Project CODE Z: Publisher Teases and Jokes on the Game’s Identity

on January 28, 2015 11:48 AM

Today Square Enix started teasing a new PS4 exclusive game codenamed Project Code Z which will be announced on January 31st. The game’s identity is definitely a mistery. Is it a new IP? The Final Fantasy spin-off leaked by an industry insider a while ago? Maybe a sequel?

We have no idea, but Square Enix has piled up even more teasing to the tease. Gamers all over the word have been bending names of popular franchise to fit the “Z,” and Square Enix joined the fray.

For the occasion, they resurrected the old Twitter account of the PS Vita launch title Army Corps of Hell, which tweeted:

It translates to “ZIGOKI NO GUNDAN is coming?” Jigoku No Gundan is the Japanese title of Army Corps of Hell. The answer from Project CODE Z‘s account was quite humorous:

Please Enter Nirvana as soon as possible.

Finally, Army Corps of Hell’s account commented:

Caustic… Young guys nowadays…

And it doesn’t end here, as the twitter account also dropped something else, this time in English:

Initial research doesn’t match any known quote, but it’s very possibly some kind of tease on the game’s nature.

It’s hard not to wonder about the interaction with the Army Corps of Hell account. Could Project CODE Z be the next game by Motoi Okamoto’s Entersphere, that developed the PS Vita launch title?

The fact that the account is also tweeting in English and German (responding “I can’t reveal anything” to an user that wished the game not to be another zombie game), also seems to indicate an international nature for the project, as its pretty uncharacteristic for Square Enix’s Japanese accounts, especially before an official announcement.
