There’s no denying that culture has an impact on arts and entertainment. An art film from France has a distinctiveness about it that no other country can match. A fine American horror novel has a feel all its own, and when it comes to Japan, there are also certain things that can only come from the mind of a creative personality born and raised there. Games like Hyperdimension Neptunia PP are one of those products. While the rest of the gaming world is deeply entrenched in shooting things from a first person point of view, HNPP takes the Neptunia world—which was already pretty crazy—and thrusts it into a “simulation” where players create the ultimate idol singer. No other country could have come up with this.
