Hyperdimension Neptunia is Coming to North America and Europe

edited November 2010 in Latest Updates
The personified versions of modern game consoles are finally coming to battle against game piracy on this side of the Pacific. Let's hope they can keep the in-fighting to a minimum, though. Console wars can be brutal.

    As much as I am not a Compile Heart fan, I kinda want to play this game just for the humor alone.

    I can't help but get this when it comes. I really hope it's done well, though.

    And as soon as I get enough time with my PS3 to actually turn it on, I'll be reviewing my notes and FINALLY finishing the impression I started for this game...

    Hahaha, really? It's one of those games I thought I'd ever see localized. Then again, we did get Agarest War.

    Probably will get it due to the JRPG drought.

    I never really doubted that it would be coming over. It's the NIS-CH-IF-Gust Alliance at work, so the normal licensing issues were probably sorted out even before the Japanese release.

    When NISA returns the Cross Edge DLC. Then I may think of buying this if ends being good. The Edge Games idiot was proven to be a con-man fraud in court.
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    Huh... I like the concept quite a bit. Great name too. I have to say that there hasn't been another moment I've wanted a PS3 more than now.

    I'm very excited. I can't wait. The only downside is having to pronounce it to some idiot at the Gamestop desk (if there's a special edition like Rorona.)

    This concept was too awesome for NISA to pass up. I never really doubted a release, either. If they market it well (and if the game doesn't suck), it could prove very profitable for them.

    Yeah, I love the concept, but am still wary about the execution ...

    This game will get a 3 or 2.5 here.

    NIS tends to always release their games at the latest they can when they give a window. Spring 2011 for them is probably May or so. Though I wouldn't be surprised if it was as late as June, maybe even the Tuesday before summer starts.

    And the score will probably be spot on.

    Or way off. It's not easy to review a niche title.

    I enjoyed Agarest but I didn't like Cross Edge so right now Compile Heart is 50/50 for me. This game seems interesting and more RPGs for the PS3 is good so I'll probably pick this up.

    Eh, cute-flashy artwork some interesting scrn-shots. Seems a little vapid and preachy... pirating bad etc... etc. We'll just have to wait and see.

    It will get a score of no more than 2.5 mark my words. The cystal ball had shown me!

    You might be aiming a little high, sir. Assuming this isn't like other IF/CH games and we actually have someone finish it.

    From what I gather, this is much better than Agarest, which was really the nadir of terribleness for them.

    I'd be willing to play this game as long as it doesn't have the tedious, boring gameplay that Agarest War has. The reason we have no review for that game is because I can only play it in small bursts because the game bores me completely to tears.

    Thankfully, Neptunia's combat system looks a lot different. Here's hoping it's a better experience!

    Don't forget it also involves the current battle against game piracy, the main baddie is "the evil Arfoire" after all.

    Yeah, that sounds like it has so much potential to fail if only for being overtly preachy.
