Compile Heart are known for their Neptunia series that parodies popular video game franchises, and according to this week’s Dengeki magazine, it sounds like their next brand new PlayStation Vita title called Hell’s #1 House could possibly be a play on words on the Japanese title for Disgaea, “Makai Senki (Hell Chronicles) Disgaea”.
The teaser trailer doesn’t show much, but it mentions that the game will be about a group of creative geniuses who’ll be going into action in order to make their house the number one house in hell.
According to the magazine report, Masahiro Yamamoto, who previously worked as the director for Nippon Ichi Software as the director of Disgaea 4, will be involved in the development of Hell’s #1 House.
Tenpei Sato who composed the music for Disgaea 4 will also be part of the team, along with Hyperdimension Neptunia producer Norihisa Kochiwa, Monster Monpiece director Makoto Kitano, and Mugen Souls character designer Kei Nanameda.
While details are scant beyond the teaser trailer, the magazine reports a few keywords, which are: “One trillion souls,” “Blood relative,” “Fight for your life,” “Way of dying,” “Joining thoughts,” and “A half-dead protagonist from the start”.
Hell’s #1 House is currently in development for PlayStation Vita.
