Korea’s Hyperdimension Neptunia Limited Edition Is Ready For A Day At The Beach

By Spencer . December 21, 2010 . 11:55am

neptuniaIt might be winter time, but Cyberfront is dreaming about sunshine and sandy beaches. They picked up Hyperdimension Neptunia for Korea and bundled a giant beach towel in the limited edition.

 

The PlayStation 3 game comes out just in time for late Christmas shoppers on December 24. Other items in the package include a visual art book, soundtrack, and the PlayStation 3 game for 65,000 won ($56).

 

Here’s a better look at the box art and the saucy towel.

    Whoa only $56 for that special edition! That is awesome, I hope NISA decides to give us a special edition (and offer free shipping)

    • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

      Well, we have to look at other perspectives… 56$ may not be “much” for us, that buy normal new ps3 games at 60$, but maybe that’s a good amount of money in korea, we dont know how their salary is and that kinda of stuff.

    • Neckbear

      Welp, NISA is going to give us a Rorona-style LE.

      Big box and artbook, can’t really complain.

      …I just hope it’s available at Amazon.

      For the source, look at the Neptunia trailer NISA just released.

  • malek86

    Wow, that’s pretty cheap. I guess the artbook is the one that was included in the japanese LE?

  • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

    Wohoa that towel looks pretty sexy o.o maybe a bit too much, not that i mind

  • Barrit

    The only thing I’d really want is that artbook. But that towel.. uh lol that’s just too much, stuff like that is just hilarious. Amazing price for a special edition though.

  • Xeahnort

    Looks pretty nice !.

    Too bad, Europe probably won´t get a LE/SE, as always

    • http://www.siliconera.com Spencer

      My memory may be fuzzy, but I recall the following limited editions have been released or have been announced in Europe, but not North America:

      Crisis Core
      Dissidia: Final Fantasy
      Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2
      Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2
      Lord of Arcana
      Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep
      The 3rd Birthday
      Dissidia 012

      If anything, especially due to the relative strength of the Euro vs. the dollar, companies would be more inclined to release limited editions in Europe.

      • Xeahnort

        I´m speaking of NISA, While Japan and North America get cool things, Europe have to deal with bare-bones instruction booklet in black and white and limited prints.

        BTW: LE released by Square-Enix in Europe aren´t so great

        • Code

          lol, even in North America most booklets are black and white >w<; If anything I can always open Blazblue:CS's case, it's booklet always makes me laugh.

          • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

            Well we wont speak of the Activision, Ubisoft, Konami instruction booklets that required one to download the PDF to see the instruction book (well at least its in color…)…

          • alundra311

            Why does it make you laugh? Don’t have Blazblue CS.

          • Code

            The booklet is black and white, and all of 4 pages long, literally the most bare bones booklet I’ve ever seen, JUST enough to have a cover and quantify being called a booklet >w<

    Towel…uh, I guess it’s a good idea to keep dry.

    NISA just released their own trailer for the game (shows English dub, too) and in their Premium box set it shows the 36-page artbook:

    No towel, though.

    • ChaosPaladinFayt

      LOL keep dry from doing WHAT exactly? xD

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      Artbook!!!! Yay!!! I like the voices in the dub, epically awesome stuff!

    • http://www.twitter.com/christaran Chris Taran

      Oh wow, -really- hope they have the Japanese voices as an option.

      And you always bring a towel. Always. Also, don’t panic.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1472407455 Charles Lupula

        They have never NOT had the Japanese voice option in their PS3 games. I’m sure it’ll be there this time too.

    • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

      Ho~ im so going for that limited edition

  • RagnaXBL

    i want that towel

  • Code

    Really subtle towel they got there… I mean seriously, since when is icing even put on what appears to be a corndog?

    • http://twitter.com/zoku88 Mykal Valentine

      Icicle? Is the word you’re thinking of: icing?

      And I’m pretty sure that’s mayonnaise, not icing. (JPN ppl put mayo on a lot of stuff.)

      • Code

        Ah my bad >w< spelling mistake fixed. But yeah, I wouldn't have even guessed that as being mayonnaise, I don't think I've even heard of putting mayo on something like that, figured it was a cultural thing I wouldn't have understood opo;

        • M’iau M’iaut

          And you would deny her the right to put icing on a corn dog?

          The only similar applicable rule I can remember is Dirty Harry’s mantra “Nobody puts ketchup on a hot dog.”

          • Code

            I put fries/sweet’n’sour sauce on my hamburgers, so I don’t see why she couldn’t put mayo, or icing, on a corndog >ww<

          • M’iau M’iaut

            There, you admitted your mistake…..trying to understand why……

            Just remember NickD isn’t responsible for where your mind goes should NISA choose to give us anything approaching that goodie.

          • malek86

            What! Why not?

          • M’iau M’iaut

            You would hafta ask Clint on that one.

          • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

            Because sweet, cheerfully red ketchup is for kiddies. Mustard is for men. Gritty texture, fiercely bitter, and always ready to attack your senses… just like Clint Eastwood himself.

          • malek86

            Kiddy? Nah. Blood red ketchup is so much better. You can keep your vomit-colored mustard.

            http://forum.dvdtalk.com/archive/t-297253.html

            And I have corrected the comment above…..I gotz no desire to piss off someone who can properly “remove the fingerprints” with a .44 magnum auto mag.

    • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

      They’re in beachwear, that stuff is coming out of a tube… it’s clearly not icing. It’s SUNTAN LOTION. YUMMY YUM YUM

      • Code

        Oh duh! How could I forget delicious, delicious, suntan location! Silly me!

  • shy_mel

    Why not just go all the way to a dakimura? It’s not my kind of thing, but I’d like to see how it would look. Normal on one side, goddess on the other?

  • maxchain

    Holy Agarest War, Batman! That’s one racy bonus!

  • http://twitter.com/Megawarrior345 Elle

    that towel…..is just…. :/

    • Guest

      The hot dog they are about to indulge their lips on splooged all over them in white stuff

      Just say it

      • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

        Mayonnaise bukkake

        Just say it

  • FHOIW

    Eeeeh, thought the limited edition was ready for stateside…

  • SolidusSnake

    I doubt the target audience for this game spends much time at the beach. Just sayin’…

    • M’iau M’iaut

      But using that towel at the beach would be such a waste. When you could like hang it on the wall or find other uses.

      • SolidusSnake

        I agree, it would be a crime to ruin such a great collector’s item by taking it to the beach.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Khairuddin-Haji-Mohamed/1488099947 Khairuddin Haji Mohamed

          Wise words indeed..

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tommy-Lee/518924335 Tommy Lee

      I think it would take an extremely brave soul to take this to the beach anyways.

      • SolidusSnake

        brave, or just shameless D:

  • http://twitter.com/Sieghardt Sieghardt

    Aw man I really hope NISA bring us some kinda box set for this

    • M’iau M’iaut

      I’m hoping that here we are at January and neither Neptunia or AT3 have shown up for preorder ANYWHERE means some nice, cool, sweet or naughty things might be included here.

  • Darkrise

    Nice LE with a nice price! But I bet canada won’t be getting the gamestop exclusive LE…

  • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

    ahhhh wish koei ( i think they are the publisher for Neptunia and Ar tonelico Qoga) make some sort of limited edition. Haven’t bought a limited edition game in quiet a while now. I bet it wont sell as much in korea since most of the people there rather play starcraft 2 :P

  • Guest

    Everytime I think about this game I think about how Sega shoula localized SEGAGAGA or at the least that one guy finished the fan translation patch for it…

  • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

    The underaged version of Neptune engaging in sexually symbolic culinary foreplay with the strip-teasing mature version of HERSELF? It doesn’t get much kinkier than that!

    What happens next in my overactive imagination can only get better… for that green fish in the plastic bag!

  • PrinceHeir

    i love the hotdog eating poster :D

  • http://kanpekijan.blogspot.com/ KanpekiJan

    How much more suggestive can an image get? xDD

    Anyway, hoping for a limited edition here in Europe, looking forward to the game! :D

  • Barrit

    NISA released a trailer for the US version on Playstation Blog. Looks like we’re getting a limited edition with the artbook. Doesn’t look like the towel is included for those who wanted that lol. It also looks like the boobs got covered up on our boxart lol, not surprised.

  • http://denpanosekai.blogspot.com denpanosekai

    WTF? Nao sings the OP theme? I love her!!!! (especially in fripside NAO project)

  • http://twitter.com/VietKnight Alexander Le

    If there is another version to purchase than just the one with the artbook but has more I would so buy it.

  • http://twitter.com/Lordvaynard Vaynard

    Awesome O.O

  • http://twitter.com/Spectral_Agent Pablo

    Okay uh… I get why there’s a warning for sexual content on the box, but why for discriminating behaviour?
