NIS America will be publishing Hyperdimension Neptunia, known in Japan as Super Dimension Game Neptune, for the Playstation 3 in North America.
Cool.I guess. What is it?
It's the japanese game that depicts the console war in a RPG form.
this game is lame as hell, i really hate all forms of media with big boobs as selling point *sigh*, and this is why gaming has a bad reputation.
COMBO EDIT: Customize, create, and name your own combo attacks! I was sold till I read the last feature. If it aint turn based then it isn't a real rpg. Its an action game with rpg elements. Go ahead and disagree, but if sales for these shit games aren't enough to prove to you that many people feel the same, then nothing will. And these publishers will probably never learn. If I wanna play an action rpg I would play god of war, mass effect, oblivion , ect....
I dont think sales has to do with the quality of the games.
"If it aint turn based then it isn't a real rpg" Bahaha. Oh yeah? Tell us more, genius.
combo attacks doesnt mean real time, combo is when you do more than 1 at once disgaea 3 (also made by NIS) had combos where characters standing near each other and that were attack the same enemy would do both attacks at once
It's turn based and just because a JRPG may be action RPG, the best alternative are only western RPG. Some people, you know have a preference for JRPG? What I enjoy about NIS America is that they cater to the niche market and they have been doing quite well. If you don't like it move on, but don't bash the gameplay and publisher if it doesn't suit you.
But... it IS turn-based. You just enter up to 4 commands per attack string. Think Xenogears or Xenosaga, unless those don't count as RPGs!
Oh shit, if its like Xenogears Im getting this day one. No I get what your saying now. When I think of combo's I think of Tales games, or the newest Star Ocean game. Im sorry guys, but after playing masterpieces like Dragon Warrior 4, Chrono Trigger, Grandia 3, Skies of Arcadia ect,, etc, I just have a hard time playing rpg's from japan that play like a broken action game.
Oh, totally understood. I miss the days of controlling your entire party. More and more rare these days.
your logic is stupid , secret of mana is a very well done JRPG yet it's not turn based .. your choice if you hate action rpgs , but your comment was illogical on so many points ...
I will get this game even if I have to put it away from my game collection. Knowing NIS America history, it's going to be $50 with goodies.
I don't see how revelant it was to add that to the article title, seeing how there is no other versions and there probably won't ever be.
Sometimes games get released on only 1 console in one region, and multiple consoles in others. FF XIII is a quick example.
Well, NIS has reaffirmed their loyalty to the Playstation fan time and time again. They haven't disappoint their fans, in fact, they apologize for bringing over The Last Rebellion because they thought their fans hated it. It's not like another company we all know who main titles are lies and deception. *coughSEcough* So it's not a surprise if they only localize a PS3 only game in Japan for the PS3 only in the US/Europe.
UltimateIdiot911, I agree, NIS has been great this gen. (why people disagreed with the FACTS of my first comment baffles me, must be butthurt xbros?)
NIS never release games on other platforms, except Cross Edge, they released a new version of it with extras on 360, but it never got release anywhere but in japan and it did terrible there, so they probably won't ever do it again.
Cross Edge Dash is Published by Idea Factory&Compile Heart
Gotta love the japanese title 'Super Dimension Game Neptune".
played best idea factory game
I LOVE YOU NIS AMERICA SO MUCH MAN. always giving jrpg fans some love on playstation. I'm getting this day one. anybody else too?
Not only that but they are the ones along with Altus that are willing to bring niche titles to the US. They even took a chance with Sakura Wars. Disappointed that didn't do too well and no more will be localize but they do a damn fine job bringing other titles over.
>Nippon Ichi >Day One Purchase
I love NIS......but i only tend to play games made by them, some of the games the tend to publish or subpar......minus Gust games also very good.
But heard this is one of the best Idea Factory/Compile Heart games, wich is the main reason I'm going to buy it. Besides, Moe Console Wars...where else can you find something like that?!
This really made my day. I've been waiting for this to get localized ever since I first learned of it. With Disgaea 4, Ar Tonelico Qoga, and now Hyperdimension Neptunia, this'll be a great year for NISA and me, the gamer. <3
So many ps3 exclusives omg...
Character designs are disgusting.
Wow. So many pedophiles in here.
day one for me as well. where else can you find a game with such a bizzare story? i cannot wait!
Man I have so much to play, but a special edition is probably going to make me buy this. Too bad Sakura Wars didn't sell well, I bought it at launch and loved it :) I haven't really played Idea Factory games, I guess this will be my first (Console war? lol)
I can see it most of the people will have the same reaction as trinity universe and stop at the screenshot and they'll miss quite a funny story and a okay battle system but also The humour. Neptunia is on my MUST BUY LIST..
Cool, but is it actually any good? Im all for a good RPG.
