Is Compile Heart Teasing Something Related To Record Of Agarest War?

By Spencer . December 16, 2013 . 11:53pm

imageHyperdimension Neptunia is Compile Heart’s biggest series, but they do make other games like Record of Agarest War. The developer opened a countdown site with a hot present to be revealed in seven days.

 

If the tag is a clue, it looks like it may be related to Record of Agarest War. The tag has spaces to spell "アガレスト戦記" which is the name for Record of Agarest War in Japanese. You can also see the "ト" and "記" characters are the correct place, but that just seems too obvious. What’s your guess?

    Let the breeding begin again!! i like Agarest series, hope it’s a new game.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Hopefully they outsource it to Felistella (like with Marriage), then it has a chance of actually being a good game.

    • Landale

      I didn’t really see anything particularly bad about the others, especially not 2, so there’s no need to assume they’d need to outsource stuff to someone else to have it be good.

      • omenaaa

        I don’t know how Felistella made games run, but every CH made game has horrible framerate issues that should be fixed.

    Is Compile Heart Teasing Something Related To Record Of Agarest War?

    Seeing those bananas, I’m sure it must be.

    • Arcana Wiz

      Lol, this made me laugh…XD

  • Zeonsilt

    I got all agarest games,completed Zero and first,still not played 2nd(only a little,#NEED MORE FREE TIME).And so far,2nd is the best one in terms of gameplay and 2D(need to buy Leonhart,ShiningBlaze4Life).

    p.s.I’m all for Record of Agarest War 3(similar to 2,but NOT agarest marriage).

    • Audie Bakerson

      All of them? Even Marriage and it’s never released in Englishness?

      • Zeonsilt

        No,not the marriage,though.
        I watched some youtube gameplay and other videos,and didn’t like it.(for two reasons : design and characters,that was not even Felistella design’s).
        p.s.for the sake of god,keep the old Compile Heart designer Hirano Katsuyuki for agarest series.

    • Keksus

      I almost finished Agarest 2. Then noticed way in the 3rd Gen that I shouldn’t have chosen the hard difficulty. Restarted. Haven’t touched it ever since, even though I like it.

      • Sentsuizan_93

        Finish it now dammit.
        Hard is actually quite challenging, but it’s oh so satisfying to beat a Boss on that difficulty with an A/B rank

      • Ereek

        Too bad, Gen 3 is when it actually starts getting really interesting. There are a few pretty big mindscrew plot twists.

  • Arcana Wiz

    Well i really would be happy if they came back to their older IPs with the new experience that they got with Neptunia.

    • Zeonsilt

      After you mention it,i think Neptunia V/Fairy Fencer battle system may work perfectly in Agarest 3.

      • Ereek

        Please no. I’d rather them have a completely new battle system if they’re going to modify it that much. If I wanted the Neptunia battle system, I’d play Neptunia. I personally like the Cross Edge-esque system they used in Agarest 2, it just needs a bit of work on the technical side of things.

  • Warboss Aohd

    hopefully a RPG and not whatever…..that one was.

    • icecoffemix

      Marriage wasn’t an RPG? (Note: I really don’t know)

      But wasn’t Agarest’s point is waifu simulator?

      • Ereek

        But wasn’t Agarest’s point is waifu simulator?

        No, not really. Agarest 1 is maybe 5% dating, and that would be stretching it. Agarest 2 does a lot of explaining “why” the marriages and sacrifices need to happen, but all in all puts less emphasis on the actual romance and more emphasis on the overall story. It does have more fanservice than Agarest 1, though, with its massage and bath mini-games.

      • Warboss Aohd

        i was in it for the RPG, i could care less that marriage was in it, Mostly my choices came down to ‘Pick Non Human Choice’ so that his offspring wouldn’t be humans, or at least, not completely human.

        • icecoffemix

          No I thought you were talking about Agarest Senki Marriage which was a PSP japan only game, my bad.

          • Warboss Aohd

            oh…………actually that is what i was talking about.

            ‘Waifu Simulator’ (i hate that word so much) aside, the Agarest games are cool in that you can influence your next main character’s stats and appearance among other things.

            I like the idea of RPGs where it takes place over Generations, it’s part of the reason i Want Over My Dead Body 2 to be localized so bad (and why i frequent Gaijinworks forums in the hope they localize the first since they are still willing to do PSP games). Especially if i have control over it, i like having control of many aspects is what it boils down to, Customization.

          • icecoffemix

            I see, this is still a novel concept even today and I don’t see many game using it. The last game I played that has this was Valhalla Knight Eldar Saga on Wii, and yes, the resulting child is a mix of race between protagonist and your partner.

            That was certainly interesting.

  • ivanchu77

    Maybe is a new mugen souls too, these are the same babanas used in the bath minigame, and both the heart and the teasing words “hot” can be applied to that franchise perfectly

    And nice to see CH working in another one of their franchises, as much as i like Neptunia it needs to rest a little (seriously, we have like 4 games already from that franchise that need to get localized)

    • Ereek

      Agreed! I like Neptunia, but I’d like to see them work more with their other IPs as well.

    • http://momentsreprieve.com/index/ Aushria

      Sucks for you then, as Compile Heart announced the 4th Neptune title started development around TGS, when they revealed Re;birth2 and gave more info on Noire’s game.

      Also, there have already been two Mugen Souls games so far and they are USUALLY revealed in December, so you’re probably right on that one.

      • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

        The correct direction would be having a customizable MC wich we can create based on wich heroine he marries wich said customization items are different from character to character.

  • Ereek

    Oooh, yes please. I’m one of those few people who really enjoys this series. It has quite fascinating lore.

    • MrTyrant

      Me too! Sadly people put too much attention to fanservice and criticize too much the repetitive/griding system that ignore the main storyline with it’s characters. It might be a missing potential for the franchine but I want the series to progress in the correct direction.

      • Croix Zapp

        i dunno. i enjoyed grinding in Smt series but the gameplay in agarest war is kinda slow =/

        • MrTyrant

          I didn’t enjoy the griding in Agarest neither mind you. I just wanted to say that everything else was quite good.

  • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

    GAH! I still need to finish Agarest 2. I haven’t even popped it in yet!

  • Aristides

    Record of Agarest war Vita!

  • DesmaX

    Whatever it is, I hope it’s for the PS4.

    Would be nice to see one of their games with stable framerate, for a change

    • xXDGFXx

      I really hope it’s for PS4. I really want some RPGs on it right now T-T

  • revenent hell

    If it is a Agarest War game……. I cant even say how much I want it to be a chick who picks her “spouse” this time around.

    • Zak Ledward

      Agarest Marriage had you play as a girl picking men, could always play that while you wait (albeit that’s the 2nd gen if I remember correctly)

  • Yan Zhao

    I really hope if they do make a new Agarest game, take the good features they did from the Neptunia series and implement them into Agarest. I really hated Agarest 1 and Zero’s slow and grindy system, but Agarest 2′s battle system was fun, albeit repetitive.

    They;ve made tons of new games since like Neptunia games and Fairy Fence F, so I hope they use that experience to make a truely good Agarest game, cause I really like the world and lore of Agarest.

  • gangrelion

    An Agarest that uses Neptunia’s engine? The first Agarest with 3D graphics (for the playable characters)? Battle system similar to Neptunia/Mugen Souls/Fairy Fencer F? So many possibilities!

  • Somethinger2

    Agarest FIGHTING GAME! Not.
    Anyone else expecting risque, tactless mobile game?

  • brian

    Agarest 2.

  • brostar

    I dunno I guess the series just isn’t for me. Really I guess I’m just not their target market.

  • Zak Ledward

    I don’t get why everyone sees Agarest 2 as the highlight of the Agarest series. People call the first two grind-city when all you needed to do was just blow through the main game and play maybe 10 battles against the Holy Dragon (can’t remember name) and you were basically level 200+. Agarest 2 on the otherhand is so grindy it makes me have to take a break, what with going across the ENTIRE MAP just to find one stupid monster and kill it 8 times for a quest that I need to get True End. The random encounter thing was a step into traditional RPG and to be honest is a lot more irritating then clearing points on a map. IDK, Agarest 1 and Zero will always have a place in my heart as the beginning of a good Fanship but Agarest 2 just makes me want to cry.
