Retro Sega Characters Revived For Neptune

By Spencer . May 6, 2010 . 11:51pm


Neptune, Compile Heart’s RPG about moe console wars, alludes to companies like Nippon Ichi and Gust, but has a more direct connection with Sega. Some of Sega’s archived characters will make a cameo in Neptune.


We’re not sure which ones though because this news comes from a leak. Game Star’s product page says retro characters from Sega will be revived for Neptune’s world. Since the word “revived” was used I wouldn’t count on Sonic and other popular Sega characters making an appearance in Neptune. Forgotten mascots like Alex Kidd are probably game, though.


Game Star also mentions a neat photo feature. Players can summon pictures from their PlayStation 3 photo album in battle! Photos can also change costumes, but Game Star doesn’t go into any details on how this works.

    Kazuma should be in the game.

        This that says this on the comment above.

          What MisterNiwa Said.

  • SeventhEvening

    Alex Kidd would be downright disturbing next to Neptune. I hope it’s a cuter Sega character, like Ulala (Space Channel 5) or Nei (Phantasy Star II)

    • SeventhEvening

      Wait, Sega owns Sakura Wars. Done.

      • While we’re at it, let’s add a couple of SEGA franchises that’s NOT Sonic:

        –Shining Force
        –Puyo Puyo

    • They’d redesign him to be a prettyboy or something. But he probably won’t be in the game at all since I’m thinking this is an Arcana Heart-style situation—NO BOYS ALLOWED, moemoe girls onry.

      That said, they would score a point with me if Ulala gets in.

      • As in, “I don’t want a sausage party in my Neptune”, correct?

        • Yeah, pretty much. Though I forgot about NPCs, so maybe a few incidental male characters will appear as shop owners or something. Maybe.

          (I wouldn’t mind a sausage party in my Neptune, but I’m definitely not this game’s target audience lololol)

    . . .What about Selvaria?

    Or, even better, Aika.

    I know, I know, not going to happen.

    omg this is awesome. Now there’s even more incentive to get this game.
    Just imagine if they just stick to completely obscure characters that haven’t already been revived in the lastest All-Stars games, like maybe a few characters from the Shining series.

    • Mazen

      After all these years I still feel Shining Force is alive or maybe am afraid to think its really really dead, anyhow if they put any character from Shining Force in this game then am buying 10 copies.

      • Chow

        I’m hoping for predating Shining Force references here. I’m hoping for Milo and Pyra of Shining in the Darkness.

  • capristrider

    Let’s see if Compile Heart can bring back Wonder Boy, Pyscho Fox or Joe Musashi out of retirement

  • Mazen

    Alex Kidd and Monster World withe their music too would be so very awesome.

  • This is almost cruel, since there is no guarantee this will be ported to the States. This game sounds more and more amazing with everything I hear about it.

  • capristrider

    Pipedream – Alex Kidd in Yakuza World!
    The Kidd’s big fist punch technique would be lethal in the game…..
