Compile Heart to launch new countdown on Thursday

Compile Heart, developers of PlayStation 3’s Hyperdimension Neptunia and the Record of Agarest War series, will launch a new countdown teaser site this Thursday, March 24.

The latest issue of Dengeki played host to the revelation, but provides no hints as to what it may be (as far as we know). Our only option at this point is to wait until Thursday, where hopefully the countdown site will give off some type of clue.

Stay tuned.

Update 12:16am: Some additional details have surfaced. The project is codenamed “NPG” (no, not NGP, like the Sony handheld). Its platform is currently unknown. The following two quotes appear in the magazine, teasing a title in spirit of Hyperdimension Neptunia:

  • “What if game machines were cute girls?”
  • “That machine will shake in your hand like a little girl.”

Apparently, NPG is a revolutionary new portable system for a new generation.

Thanks, Andriasang.

Update 12:34am: Scan added below.
