Neptune Trailer Presents Moe Company Mascots

By Spencer . May 10, 2010 . 6:58pm

The latest Neptune trailer shows Nippon Ichi, Idea Factory, Gust, and even developer Compile Heart personified as a moe mascot for the PlayStation 3 game, but you may have seen these characters before because they leaked out early.

 

Notice how Sega, a company heavily involved in Neptune, doesn’t have a hedgehog girl? Rumor has it, retro Sega characters are actually in Neptune.

    Haha, from today onward i’m a moe fan.

    I hope they work in a better theme song for the game song =)

    NIS America NEEDS this! I’m hopeful, with all the cross over games they’ve been doing, but this is better because it’s actually something completely original.

    • masuto

      No, Aksys Games NEEDS this!

    I was hoping for some game play footage but next time I suppose

  • Chow

    I am so getting this, despite all dialogue very likely going to be static character portraits with text.

    • Ereek

      It might not necessarily be static. Trinity Universe used something more similar to Sakura Taisen, so they might have “graduated” up to animated art.

      and Agarest Zero, one of compile heart’s last game, didnt had static potraits

      • Ereek

        Agarest did have static portraits. The portraits stand there and don’t really move until you’re shown another portrait. In comparison to TU or Sakura Taisen where the lips will move and the eyes will blink and whatnot.

        Also, Cross Edge is a newer game than Agarest, it’s just Agarest didn’t get a release until now.

    LOL, even Japan wants to give #Sonic a much-needed vacation from overexposure. OK, #SEGA, I hope that your in-game avatar in Neptune either cosplays as Sakura Shinguji or is Sakura Shinguji herself!

    They should totally have Sting and Falcom in there.

    I hope they do more characters. I would love to see the PSP and NDS, as well as SNES, Genesis, etc. Putting in some other developers would be good too. I wouldn’t mind seeing Sting, SE, Atlus, etc. Not saying all these developers need to be here, but it would be cool to see more juggernauts and other smaller companies featured. I’m really curious how they would portray these companies. Compile Heart, please go all out!! xD
