Keiji Inafune Is Back!? As A Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 Cameo Character!?

By Spencer . April 25, 2011 . 9:54pm

imageKeiji Inafune has been immortalized, not by Capcom, but by Compile Heart. The developer added the Mega Man creator to Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 as a summon of sorts. You can call Inafune to deal out two attacks, Creator Sword where you use Inafune’s folded arms as a sword and Donnahanda Nova which has Inafune shoot a beam from his mouth. Both attacks use photos of Inafune in the game.

 

In addition to Inafune, Dengeki will be represented in Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 with an anthropomorphic character. Dengkiko-chan is another newcomer to the PlayStation 3 game. IF, Compa, Gust-chan, NIS, and 5pb are confirmed to be in the game too. The magazine did not mention Red-chan, perhaps because Red Entertainment was acquired by UltiZen Games.

 

Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 will be released on August 18. Pre-order the PS3 game and you’ll recieve an art book as a bonus. The limited edition includes a soundtrack CD and figures of Nepgear and Neptunia.

    This games crazy meter just went up considerably. I love it.

  • Rarutos

    You mean that Red being absorbed article wasn’t an April Fool’s Joke?! Oh dear…

    Well, I’m happy that everyone is returning at least! And this news is pretty hilarious to be honest. But I’m sure it adds to the charm of the game. :)

    dat limited edition….. want, i hope the figures aren’t cheap lookign though
    new characters are always good for most
    and interesting take on Inafune

    • MizuMikomi

      It looks like the placeholder art used for nendoroids and Nendoroid petits, so I highly doubt they will look cheap.

      If you’re going to pre-order, you may want to consider AmiAmi. They’ve got an exclusive bonus for this, though it’s not clear to me just what that bonus is here. (Typically it’s a collector’s phone card, though I have a Touhou figurine that was AmiAmi exclusive in and of itself, which had a bonus jigsaw puzzle, of all things.)

      • MizuMikomi

        Hmmm, thanks for that info, I normally go with PlayAsia for imports, but I think I might branch out and use AmiAmi this time around. Like i always say, for me, more Neptune is never a bad thing~ =P

        • Locklear93

          I agree. It’s a simple enough game, but it’s cute and fun. If you use AmiAmi, be aware that they ship from Japan, and prices are in yen. They’ve got an English site, but you ARE going to be dealing with currency conversion, and some other headaches. They’re very reputable among figure collectors; I enjoy using them, but they’re not the most convenient site for a US buyer–just one of the best stocked. I got my Disgaea 4 import through them.

          • MizuMikomi

            I recently ordered something through Goodsmile, and I now that I recall, I think I ordered Kingdom Heart II Final Mix+ from AmiAmi a few years ago.

            So I am used to Yen conversion, but thanks for telling me. I appreciate it.

          • lordryo

            I ordered Neptune 1 from AmiAmi. They were really good. I’ll likely order MK2 from them as well.

  • Code

    rar, by far one of the best summons I’ve seen all day~!

    • Zero_Destiny

      I like how Inafune is firing his LAZERS!!!!!!! XD

    • PrinceHeir

      lol he should turn blue and blast some charge attack :P

    LOL , those laser will deal an amazing amount of damage XD

    Well this is an embarrassment to Kenji actually.

    • HarryHodd

      They don’t call him crazy Ken for nothing.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    is Back!?

    I love how it’s in English lol
    However, just wait for the memetic mutation to start…

    SHOOP DA WHOOP.

    And Dengkiko-chan ftw.

  • MizuMikomi

    Awesome can’t wait to get my copy; pre-ordering soon as I’d be stupid to miss out on those figures, Inafune greatly disturbs me, but the inclusion of Dengekiko-chan, and everyoen btu 5pb more than makes up for that.

    Also… really, Neptunia, why is it that nobody can never call her by her actual name, instead of the title of the game? Her name is Neptune not Neptunia, can people please get that straight? Neptunia was a name change for the US version since the word “Neptune” is copyrighted/trademarked by some quack.

    Neptunia stands for “Neptune Mania” as stated by NickyD a while back. The character’s name is Neptune.

      oh i realized the mistake XD
      “figures of Nepgear and Neptunia” well people make mistakes

      • MizuMikomi

        I know that, but it just bugs me… as I see it everywhere, and I hold back the urge to lash out most of the time. It’s just that this time, I didn’t

  • Guest

    Why cant they just collaborate with Capcom & Namco? I’d rather a Megaman summon.

      Re: Namco Bandai — IT’S OVER 9000 times busy with Dragonball, to the point we all see less Tales games outside of Japan. Seriously, in the West alone, Dragonball buried Tales, Ar tonelico, Super Robot Wars, and Summon Night, to the point it’s not even funny.

      Re: Capcom — too busy cashing in the fighting game revival, with SFxT next in line. Even worse, them graphics whores whined about Megaman 9 & 10, to the point he no-showed in MvC3.

      • Guest

        Dante was in an Atlus game before remember? And Sony’s Kratos was in Soul Calibur. Let’s not also forget the Namco x Capcom SRPG so it is possible. And SRW has licensing issues and Bandai hasn’t even said anything about bringing over DBZ Ultimate Butoden for DS.

      • Exkaiser

        Wow, it’s like the things you said had no relevance to the subject.

        Fantastic.

    In hindsight, I won’t find it hard to believe if Inafune’s in-game avy is that of western memes, starting with Shoop.

  • Kris

    Amazing.
    Somewhat baffling, but still amazing.

  • http://nisemonokami.deviantart.com/ NiseKami

    …Speechless. But this is what I’ll be looking forward to when I get it!! :D

  • DanteJones

    Hahahahah!! This is simply amazing. I hope his mouth moves the same way Canadians do in South Park, I think I would die from laughter. XD

  • http://twitter.com/IXRoxasXI Rei Fal’Cie Sanchez

    I find this disturbing but at the same time awesome¬!

  • kroufonz

    wow inafune!

  • http://twitter.com/Neutronite Alex Bogdanov

    I wonder how Inafune will react to his immortalization:
    Inafune – Curse those developers who escaped from me and who are now showing my secrets to the whole world. Now people will finally understand how I made my team make such awesome titles. Guess I now have to go to Compile Heart and make them remember the reason why I was immortalized.

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    This game intends to bring the lulz!

  • Phoenix_Apollo

    I…don’t know how to respond to this…that’s just wow.

  • http://twitter.com/willofsilver Silver Lion

    You’ve gotta be kidding me, man…

  • Subsenix

    I would’ve expected a Pro West-Person like him in the next Call of Duty or Gears of War on the 360 after crawling deep in the asses of Bobby Kotick and co.

    But this?hilarious

    • HarryHodd

      He’s going back to his roots.

  • Darkrise

    This just made my day xD. Especially hearing about the figures, now I have more reason to import this.

  • katamari

    5pb-chan should be a mage character.

    Whoa whoa whoa! Red was acquired by UltiZen Games?! Does this mean no more Record of Agarest War games?! Oh please God, noooooo! Please tell me it isn’t so!

    I can’t wait for this game though! I just recently got a PS3 and Neptunia and Atelier Rorona were the first games I got. =3

  • http://www.nisamerica.com NickyD

    What! The jokes… they are pouring into my head…

    • Ladius

      I hope they will also pour in Neptunia 2′s localization :P

      • http://www.nisamerica.com NickyD

        If such a localization comes to pass, I hope so, as well. :D
