No Shortage Of Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 Promotion In Japan

By Spencer . August 5, 2011 . 1:50am

shop2_1[1]With only two weeks until Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2‘s launch, electronics retailers are marketing the PlayStation 3 game with lavish displays. These are the kinds of things you would see if you stepped into Tsutaya (right) or WonderGoo.

 

Idea Factory is hosting a collection of storefront displays because they are holding a contest for the hyper Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 stand. Here’s a look at how the game is being promoted in Japan.

      • DanteJones

        Oh, I’ll send you one no problem, for the modest sum of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l91ISfcuzDw

    japan always get the cool stuffs i wish American learning with them

    • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

      Isn’t America adding a lot of pretty sweet pre-order bonus these days though? Not to the extent of Japan, sure, but I think they are learning to an extent.

        like that boxer and shirt for Catherine :( i wish japan had em so i don’t have to import the english version.

        • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

          Not sure about America or Japan, but I also remember the Europe version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Collector’s Edition coming with a BlazBlue ceramic mug, a Taokaka T-Shirt and a character DLC code worth 8$. All that in addition to a Limited Edition copy of the game, which comes with a 98-page art book and 8 high-quality art cards.

          That’s quite a hefty bonus, if you ask me.

            What collector’s Edition? I only got the normal limited one~

          • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

            I found that one on Ebay some months ago. It contains, like I said above, Limited Edition plus a mug, a shirt and a code. I remember it because I was the middle-man for my friend, who’s a Taokaka fan.

            The odd thing is that Amazon UK also has a different Collector’s Edition, and it now has a bag instead of a shirt. Not sure about the DLC code.
            http://www.amazon.co.uk/BlazBlue-Continuum-Shift-COLLECTORS-official/dp/B004FLK73K/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1312547708&sr=1-1

            I don’t own either of them though; I only have the Limited version with the art book and art cards, because that’s enough for me.

          • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

            Oh hot~! I would’ve loved the T-Shirt and the bag…if I had any information about the collectors edition sooner >___<

          • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

            If you want both, you would have to buy two different CEs…

            In any case, I’m glad I waited for the price drop.

          • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

            @DrakosAmatras:disqus  Yeah…probably just the T-Shirt version then, cause I’m a Tao sucker, but I won’t get them anyway I have my copy of the game. Not going to double dip for that~

        • skyblaze

          you may not have the boxer and shirt but YOU LIVE IN JAPAN. that overrides like… EVERYTHING. it’s my friggin’ dream to live there, dood >.<

          • Guest

            but here you have more variety of the womens

            plus we have NASCAR, Walmart, mullets (business in the front, party in the back), drive-by shootings in ghettos and cow tipping

    • Eric Chan

      What about the Agarest War Special Edition? I’d say that’s learning pretty well…

      • theworldofnoboundries

        Huh? Not Agarest: Super Naugty Edition? lol

  • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

    Loli game consoles;
    Number 1 Otaku bait.
    In your face, Sweden.

    That’s quite a few eyecatching displays.
    But I’m not into the main character’s black bikini-ish uniform. It looks so plain and almost vulgar. Her school unform is way cuter.

    • HistorysGreatestMonster

      I’m the opposite. I love the black bikini. I’m a bit disappointed that in the few cosplay pictures of the character I’ve seen, no one ever gets the outfit right. Even the one piece one.

  • Guest

    Too much pink…now I need some Pepto Bismol

    …wait thats pink too..

    aaagh

    • AzureNova

      This kind of pink is good for your soul lol

      • theworldofnoboundries

        More white for the Nintendo char model is better.

  • AzureNova

    O_O Wow! I wish stores in America would promote games I love like this. It would make the games even more exciting to buy. Either way I can’t wait until Neptunia MK-2 is localized so I can continue the console wars.

      Its not the stores fault. It’s NISA and the consumer’s fault. These things actually sell games in Japan. If they had that in a Gamestop the store owner would prolly trash it before it ever saw the floor, or some douche bag kid would tear it up while his mom is buying some random COD game for her 9-10yr. old.

    Ha, I just got off the first game before coming to Basili- I mean, Siliconera :P

    Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 is proving that pink is the new black.
