Likely teasing something Record of Agarest War-related.

Compile Heart Teaser Site

Compile Heart has launched a new teaser countdown site.

The site features a wrapped present with bananas, party hats, and other objects surrounding it. Alongside the image, the text reads: “From Compile Heart, for every man: a hot present that will warm the heart and body.”

The gift has a tag on it that reads, “○○○○ト○記.” Fill in the missing blanks and you get “アガレスト戦記” (Agarest Senki), otherwise known as Record of Agarest War. It makes sense considering the bananas (NSFW), at least.

And speaking of bananas—currently the countdown is at seven days, with a reveal set for Christmas Eve. The seven days image file is hosted here. In the URL, replace 17 with 18, 19, and so on, and you’ll receive the countdown image for each respective date. Change it to 24—the last day—and you’ll get a picture of Monster Monpiece mascot Otton holding bananas… surrounded by dancing bananas. The text in that image says “Shall we have a Merry Christmas?”

    *clicks on “banana” link*

    Holy crap! Lol

    • Pyrofrost

      The first game even came with a boobie mouse-pad.

  • ヴァルラシュ

    Trinity Universe 2 confirmed

    • Elvick

      I love Trinity Universe.

  • Josephl64

    Shenmue 3?

    • TetsuyaHikari

      … Please tell me you’re trolling.

    • Budgiecat

      Shenmue 3 or nothing

      • bloodiOS

        Heh! If Compile Heart makes Shenmue 3, it might as well be a fucking nothing.

        • Pyrofrost

          ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

          If CH/IF got their hands on Shenmue, they would revolutionize the series.
          Hell, I heard they were secretly working on Yakuza 6, and it’s going to be completely centered around Haruka and her “idol drama.” ISN’T THAT GREAT!

          • bloodiOS

            Oh, I’m sure it will be a well-received revolution much like Ninja Theory’s DmC.

            • Pyrofrost

              B…b…but, that game was amazing, and in every way better than the original series!


              • bloodiOS

                Exactly, and its successful sales reflects just that. It wouldn’t be a stretch at all to say that Capcom is very proud of their decision of outsourcing the development of the series to Ninja Theory.

                • Pyrofrost

                  I wouldn’t be surprised if Resident Evil was next!

                  They could just pass that on to Infinity Ward or Treyarch. I’m sure they would know what to do with it.

                  • bloodiOS

                    Why would they do that when they can just easily go with Slant Six Games? Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City was the hit of the generation after all.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      That would be a most excellent idea!

                      Then they could tease their fans that they are resurrecting an old and iconic IP of theirs, only to confirm that it’s exclusive to smartphones, pads, and touchbased windows PCs.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Yeah, I couldn’t believe how happy people were when Breath of Fire 6 was announced as an “easy touch-type online RPG” for smartphone. I could literally hear people singing praises for Capcom across the globe.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      Indeed, people are about as happy with that as they were about Bayonetta 2 as a Wii-U exclusive and KH3 on the XBone!

                    • bloodiOS

                      Indeed! People were so happy with those turns of events, many started flooding the creators’ social network pages with their heartfelt gratitude and blessings.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      Yes, yes, yes! People are happier and more content with the state of the gaming industry today than they ever have been; especially the gamers.

                    • bloodiOS

                      This is true. If there is a group of people that are most content with their products, it’s the gamers. You literally hear nothing but their heartfelt appreciation for the industry everyday.

                      P.S. Heaven, early morning and I’m already in my bed texting away on my phone with only one eye (half) opened. I think I’m going back to sleep…

                    • Pyrofrost

                      Lol, laters friend ^_^

  • bloodiOS

    I’ve always considered picking up Record of Agarest War at some point but always seem to forget…

  • Aleksandrina

    Never played to the Agarest Senki series due to the -extreme- fanservice with the bananas and all, but I love the characters’ artworks.

    This also reminds me of Trinity Universe… so I wouldn’t mind a sequel. I liked the first one, even if the gameplay was quite tedious/bland sometimes.

  • ͜ʖ ͡°

    Agarest War 3?? i thought it’s another GALAPAGOS RPG lulz

  • peppe

    How about Neptunia 4?

  • fyi1191

    All I care about is which console will it be on. Is it time to pick up the PS4?

    • bloodiOS

      Likely going to be PS3.

      • Pyrofrost

        You don’t think they will do crossgen or something?

        As much as I’d hate to say it, they put the second JRPG to the PS3 IIRC. The first being Enchanted Arms, of course.

        • bloodiOS

          I don’t know. They’re small though, so I don’t think they’ll get involved with the PS4 this soon.

          • Pyrofrost

            True, but with as much money as they’ve made on the moe-blob and fanservice; and considering the PS4 is less expensive and requires less resources than the PS3. I figured it may be possible.

            Their games are so cheaply made (no offense to anyone), that they don’t require at least a few hundred thousand sold to see a return. They can just keep it a small production like always, ship out small runs, and the people who are into it will gobble it up like always.

            • bloodiOS

              I’m sure they’ll be testing the water soon enough, but not this soon. They’ll have to see how the PS4 performs in Japan first. Until then, I’ll only see them playing safe and pushing out titles for the system that has the most of their fanbase.

              • Pyrofrost

                Makes sense, especially since, now that I think about it, the console hasn’t even been released in Japan yet. It is completely possible that it could see the same trend the Wii-U is going through there.

                I’m not saying the chances are great, but it is possible.

  • Nightcore34

    Hmm, never played an agarest game before but have always been interested in it, if it turns out to be a new one that peeks my interest then yeah maybe I’ll pick it up, If it’s something else then hell yeah.

  • Sieghardt

    As soon as I saw the word Bananas, I thought of Agarest, glad I wasnt the only one :P

    Hope it plays like Agarest 2

  • Auragar

    …Ok… and it seems also to be the year of teaser sites out the wazoo.
