The first PlayStation 4 entry in Idea Factory’s girls as game consoles role-playing game is out in North America today. I’m betting it’ll take less than an hour of playing to decide if Megadimension Neptunia VII is for you, so here’s an hour of playing. Mind the NSFW screen at the end.
So far the Neptunia franchise has been three mediocore RPGs and a passable IDOLM@STER parody—so my hopes weren't the highest going into its first strategy RPG. But let me tell you, there is a lot to love in Hyper Goddess Faith Noire: Ultra Goddess Black Heart—even with its impressively complicated name.
The newest game in the Neptunia series stars some of the most well-known game franchises reimagined as anime girls. But the character designs are far from the only shout-out to these series. You should see some of the special attacks.
When Hyperdimension Neptunia first made its way West from Japan in 2011, folks weren't too happy with it. "Worthless" and "sexist" and "stereotypical" were the sentiments thrown around, because we were seeing cute anime girls being silly and wearing short skirts. But the stated purpose of the series is to make fun of…
It’s looking to be a big summer for game industry parody series Neptunia—despite the worrisome event from a few weeks back. Not only is it getting its own anime and a remake of the original game on the Vita, but it also recently got a new spin-off game: God Dimension Idol Neptunia PP.
The past few years produced a huge amount of great games and a surprisingly decent amount of them have well-developed characters that are hard to forget. And, of course, some of them look really attractive.
The virtual wife of Archer's resident scientist (and potential genetic clone of Hitler) Dr. Krieger is much more animated than the pair of anime girls in NIS America's Hyperdimension Neptunia the App for iOS, and likely not as expensive either.
This year at the Tokyo Game Show, Kotaku had the pleasure of sitting down with Mizuno Naoko, the creator of Hyperdimension Neptunia (and both of its sequels), to talk about the past, present, and future of the series. As we sat 47 floors above the game show proper, she told me about the origins of Neptunia.
The Japanese role-playing game craftspersons at Compile Heart and Idea Factory give us moe, moe, moe of the anthropomorphic video game hardware ladies we've been looking for (foe?) when Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk. 2 hits the PlayStation 3 February 28. What a handful!
Turn off your computer sound. Right now. This clip's audio quality (and picture quality) is horrid. However, it does show off a special attack, the likes of which gaming has never seen.
In Japan, voice actresses have a niche fan base. There are magazines and websites dedicated to them, and popular voice actresses might parlay that into music singles or photobooks. Aya Hirano, the voice of Haruhi Suzumiya, was able to make the leap from anime and games to mainstream celebrity, appearing on television…
For a game about game consoles transformed into hot women, Hyperdimension Neptunia wasn't very good. That's why there are sequels!
The codename for Sony's upcoming PSP successor is "NGP", short for "Next Generation Portable". Japanese game company Compile Heart of Hyperdimension Neptunia
infamy fame is making a new title that is called "NPG".
In the future, all wars will be fought by Japanese anime women wearing revealing battle suits. For the console wars the future in now, thanks to Hyperdimension Neptunia.
