Neptunia V takes place in Gamindustri circa 1989. While you play as Neptune she isn’t the CPU of Planeptune. A new character, Pururut is and she transforms into Iris Heart. Blanc, Noire, and Vert are in the game too. They still transform into White Heart, Black Heart, and Green Heart, respectively.

 

Neptunia V comes out this summer for PlayStation 3.

    man o man neptunia gets better with each new  game created! this is MUST BUY!

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

      gets better in terms of what? more female character? 

      • Genjo

         lol well yeah and improvement all around of the game the neptunia series is one of those games where it gets better each new installment to the series i guess you could say it’s like tales of series which each tales game is different in way  each game is good and bad.

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

          Of course Neptunia games get better with every installment – all two of it, or only one if we count only the improvements; because the first game started from a really low quality point. No wonder the 2nd one is better in comparison, but from a bigger perspective, that’s not saying much at all.

          Comparing that series to Tales games, which are made with much more effort and budget for the sake of creating functional games, isn’t exactly convincing, I’m afraid.

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

          You know you are trying to make something so obvious huge right?

      • http://burnpsy.wordpress.com/ burnpsy

        Every instalment fixes the problems in the previous.

        • malek86

          That sounds like an easy claim, considering there’s been exactly two games. You are not wrong, just… a bit misleading, I guess.

          I think we should at least wait for the next one to come out before we can use the word “every”.

  • Shinji Kazuya

    Oh man! It looks cuter than ever!

  • MrKappa

    White Heart is in Famicom colors.
    Green Heart is in Xbox colors.
    Black Heart is in PS2 colors.
    What exactly is Iris Heart so suppose to be again?

    On a different note this game could not come out any sooner and I still gotta play through the first two. I want this game now.

    • http://twitter.com/tokkanram Robert Mason

       Iris Heart is the Mega Drive.

  • z_merquise

    Aww, Pururut is so cute!

    *transforms to a dominatrix*

    O_O

       Yeh it took my brain a few seconds to register what the hell happened in those bottom two screencaps.

  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

    These screenshots just made the game more tempting than it is now….

  • artemisthemp

    Should it not be Neptunia V comes out in Japan this summer for PlayStation 3.
    Considering NISA haven’t even said, if they even consider releasing this in US or EU

  • CirnoLakes

    Oh my God the adorableness.

    Especially when she’s holding the cat.

  • http://burnpsy.wordpress.com/ burnpsy

    I saw the title expecting story details. Disappoint…

    Nice new screens, though.

  • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

    Keiji Inafune returns as an aircraft, lol. Haven’t play any game in this series, will play soon for the sake of Gamindustri.

  • boundries_san

    So…. Pururut is….. Mega Drive??? or i think Genesis? Hell MOAR Neptunia=YEAH!!!!!!!!

  • ivanchu77

    Pururut doesn´t look very young compared to others, but she stills manages to be a cutie, especially in that pic where she hugs that plushie, so adorable (*´▽`*)

    Summer can´t come soon enought, I hope NISA ends localizing this one too

    Moe overload returns with higher levels of MOE!

  • IshimaruKaito

    :D !!!!!!!

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Those graphics look so good.

    Also I realized that Pururut reminds me a lot of Pamela…and Pamela is one of my favorite GUST chars ever. dis gon’ be gud.Also look at her expression in the 1st Iris heart pic. So smug <3

  • Luna Kazemaru

    can’t wait for this.

    • Raharu95

      Same here

    Iris Heart gives me the impression of a villain character for some reason. It might be her red eyes and her dominant personality, though I would think that those alone wouldn’t make me think she’s evil.

    I’m starting to consider the idea that perhaps Iris Heart becomes a villain partway through the game, and Purple Heart needed to be transported to that Gamindustri to fill the void that Iris Heart going evil would have caused.

    I think me actually imagining such things is a good sign for the game. It shows it generates interest. :)

    • Barrit

      I thought the same! I looked at the screenshots before I read the article and thought she was the villain. I like your prediction, I could see that happening.

      • http://twitter.com/salarta salarta

        It certainly helps the impression that Pururut looks like a cross of Rei Ayanami and possible yandere.

        As much as I’d like to keep Iris Heart in the party, I’m also open to her going wherever the story takes her. JRPGs these days are too diminished by the fear of upsetting the average consumer with things like making them lose a playable character unexpectedly through the story, or forcing them to lose a fight to progress. Those were certainly annoyances, and shouldn’t be all over the place, but it doesn’t mean they should be done away with completely.

        • Barrit

          Agreed. I don’t mind those type of twists at all if they are done well.

          As for Pururut, look at her plush kitten. It looks kinda evil lol.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/DRT2XLO6AIZH4RWZLKFZDI76IE Ann

      I think she might be an alternate version of Arfoire personally.

      • http://twitter.com/salarta salarta

        That’s a very good observation. Arfoire in the original game was all purple, which happens to be Neptune’s colors. If I remember correctly, Arfoire used to be a goddess herself. At the very least, she was an acquaintance of Histoire before going evil.

  • AzureNova

    Oh Pururut, why you so hot ^_^? Neptunia V keeps looking even better and better every time I see it. You can tell they put a lot of work into this one just by the quality of the screenshots and character models. I can’t wait until it gets a localization date. Day 1 here! =^_^=

  • Bio_liquid

    Iris Heart looks like a sadist >.>……. TAKE MY INNOCENCE WITH MY MONEY!!

  • DanteJones

    I still can’t get over just how good the visuals look compared to the last two games, it looks great! I hope NISA is going to be in this one too, and 5pb. :D

  • http://lukalovesgames.blogspot.de/ Alkaid

     EHHH!?!?  CPU switch WTH!??!?!
    I …look she’s so cute und then? BAMM what the hell!?!?!?
    WHAT THE HECK!?

    Okay… I kinda need to get used to this but the new ingame models look extremely good….
    Black Heart-sama~~ T^T
    Just one… ONE more clarification here: I will buy this!

    • Fire.fire.kun

      I know, right? It’s like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

      Also I wonder if Pururut uses the cat as a weapon…

      • http://lukalovesgames.blogspot.de/ Alkaid

         Yupp that is… the perfect comparison. Bet they were like: “Let’s make a schizophrenic goddess, one part is totally cute and the other… well not so much but… let’s give her a digital whip!”

        • Raharu95

           Well, her cute part is not completely cute. if you look closely, the doll she is carrying in this screenshot has an evil face on. other than that, she is cute as cute can get.

      • http://momentsreprieve.com/index/ Aushria

        Actually, she uses plush-animals that she makes as a weapon. Her character art even shows that she has one based off of Neptune. =P

  • Ryan Baer

    Can’t say I’m a big fan of the new MC and her “Dominatrix” thing, but at least the older goddesses look nice. I hope IF is still in it, she’s my favorite of the series.

  • Darkrise

    Iris Heart <3!!!! I love the screenshots, the visuals improved so much!

    • PK212

       I agree, I especially like how Neptune looks now, like in this screenshot:

  • omeganeko

    does this have a new story or do you have to play the last 2 games to enjoy it to the fullest?

  • http://twitter.com/diptadiptadip Pradipta Permadi

    maybe it’s time for me to buy Mk2, skipping the first one.

  • Souji Tendou

    That’s a uh….. drastic transformation, from a cute girl into a uh…. BDSM-like woman….? O_o

    • http://www.falgram.com/ Falmung

       But aren’t nearly all transformations like that?

      • Souji Tendou

        Ah I see. Sorry, never played a single Neptune game. ;D

  • Spider-Man

    Oh man, breasts! Gimme dis game!

  • https://twitter.com/A_Beast_of_Prey Equinox K

    Haven’t played any of them as of yet outside of seeing trailers for the first one and the companies attached to the project as a whole. It has perked my interest since, but I know of how broken the first game was. If improvements were done with Mk 2 to make it more competent,hopefully this will be the case with this one.

    Also let’s be honest, this is major eye candy and squeeness, plain and simple. Even so as long as it is pulled off decently I’m all for it.

    • http://twitter.com/salarta salarta

      The main draw of the first game was story and characters, seeing the concepts play out that no other major game has even tried despite how long the industry has been going.

      mk2 did improve the gameplay by leaps and bounds. The gameplay was actually fun, something that couldn’t be said about the first installment. The cutscenes were also a lot more awesome, the gag references to the industry were better, and things you do in the story actually felt worthwhile rather than feeling like padding.

      The only aspect of it that seemed unentertaining for me very personally were ones with overzealous otaku characters bordering into creepy territory, and those were very rare.

  • pgover

    So a cute, innocent looking girl who, upon going to CPU mode, turns into a badass dominatrix? I’m down with that. This game just keeps looking better and better.

  • http://twitter.com/matty_125 matty

     I’m now just wondering why Planeptune is purple and not blue?
    I think it’s because Iris’ hair is kind of shaped like Sonic, or at least reminds me of him.

  • Learii

    green heat  look sexy on this one wow

  • Elemiel

    I’ve never played a Neptunia game but I’d definitely get this one for Pururut and Iris Heart.

  • protofox

    1989. good year. oh very much soooo.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Homero-Alejandro-Santiago-Ruiz/843999460 Homero Alejandro Santiago Ruiz

    Nice screenshots, cant wait for this new chapter of the saga XD

  • Nitraion

    If i skip the 1st one will I able to understand the story?
    You know like atelier arland series?

    • Fire.fire.kun

      It’s skippable. The first game takes place in an alternate universe from the 2nd and 3rd game so there is no continuity. 

      • Nitraion

        okay thank you so glad for the answer :3

  • http://www.facebook.com/pokefreaks Nay Aung Latt

    Confirmed, Xbox360 still has biggest boobs.

  • puchinri

    I notice everyone keeps saying BDSM and dominatrix. These words/terms, I do not think they mean what you think they mean. . . >u<;
    (Or rather yet, pop culture taints many things.)

    The designs in this title are appealing to me slightly more than the others. Have there been more screens of the backgrounds/levels?

  • http://profiles.google.com/jake.demopoulos Jacob Demopoulos

    *sigh* Black Heart… what happened to you? I could somewhat respect your first design. Please come back with those badass claws. You too, Purple Heart, Green Heart and White Heart. I miss you all.

    And I never thought I’d say that.
