Neptunia V Lands In Japan In August

By Spencer . May 14, 2012 . 11:39pm

21[1]Dengeki PlayStation reports Neptunia V will be avaialble in Japan on August 30 and features a new group of enemies – the seven sages.


Anonedeath, a young girl wearing a pink gothic lolita style dress, is one of Neptunia V’s villains and she has a giant mech with her. Arcdecision (?) is a sinister looking elderly man in a silly robot exosuit.


New for Neptunia V is an informant system which changes the Gamindustri world depending on who you talk to. Informants can make dungeons appear and change what items are available, so I guess this is similar to Persona 2’s rumor system. You can also change the beliefs of people by working with informants.


NIS America has not announced Neptunia V for North America… yet, but considering how Hyperdimension Neptunia and Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 fared in the market I’d say there’s a pretty good chance it’s coming over.

    I’ll preorder it the moment NISA announces it’ll localize it. I’m not too worried though, I think its just a matter of when, not if.

    Anonedeath = Anonymous?

  • usagi_san

    I’m looking forward to this game. Depending on its release date, it is potentially a day-one for me. Iris Heart (being voiced by Kana Hanazawa) FTW!!! 

  •  Arcdecision=arc system works possibly

  • omeganeko

     This game looks cool. But I’ll wait to get more information. Doesn’t V mean five in roman numerals, unless of course the v stands for something else……like VICTORY.

    •  It stands for Victory.
      That’s the title of the game in fact.

      • omeganeko

        It is? lol thanks

        •  Yep, Ultra Dimension Game Neptune V (Victory) is the full title ~!

          So yeah, no problem. =P

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Day one buy.

  • Raharu95

    Day one buy for me

    • boundries_san

      You can said that again.^^ DAY ONE DAY ONE DAY ONE!!!!!!!

      • Raharu95

        Ra Ra Ra!!! (Hopes for Melissa Fahn to come back as Neptune and for Red-chan to return)

  • Expecting February release for NISA version

  • Looking forward to the bad ending which imo was the best ending for me for the last game. Didn’t like the game story too much haha

  • Nitraion

    I’m confused between buying mk2 first or just jump to this one…..

    • boundries_san

      Buy all of them lol.^^ Even the first one!!! THATS ORDER!!!

      • Nitraion

        O_o maybe i try 2nd one
        I’m not fond battle system on 1st one….

        • boundries_san

          Haha well if u played the first one, u will know the personality of Neptune and all the first CPU char more while on the second series, it emphasize more on all the CPU candidate.

          But i do understand what u mean here as Neptunia 1 battle system is not as good as Neptunia 2 here.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      90% of the charm is lost unless you play the 1st or 2nd in some form. You’ll enjoy this, but you’ll be missing out. Not so much on the 1st though lol

      • Nitraion

        I’l try get the get copy somehow with meruru coming that will be difficult choice as i will be day one buy for meruru ^^”

  • boundries_san

    After spending my whole wallet to buy the LE of Neptunia one and two day one, i can’t see why i shouldn’t spend LE for this too especially this one had InaFShip firing beam from his mouth lol.

  • *leaning back* …
    *crossing my arms*
    Okay when will the “outside of japan” release be announced? I can’t keep refreshing the Nisa shop ever few minuts. Gotta keep working, eating and stuff. ;D

    Can’t wait, seriously, I’ll just stalk Nippon Ichi America until then announce it and Atelier Ayesha too!

  • More boobie console MOE console to play with!! >:3

  • Muffum

    Have we actually seen any gameplay of this yet? Until we do, I don’t really have particularly high hopes for this game; the first game was atrocious, and the second one was a huge improvement but still never rose above okay.

    I’ll still buy it, of course, unless it takes huge steps back from the second game, because I’m an idiot like that.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      No but it’s pretty obvious it’ll be using an even more updated version of what was presented in 2. And the maps from the screenshot look like they aren’t so half assed anymore.

  • Darkrise

    Why do most girls in gothic lolita style have to be the villains. (;_;)

    But other than that, Day 1 for me!

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Man I’d import this day one but neptune just isn’t Neptune without Melissa Fahn as her voice actor.

    • Glad there are other fans out there. The day they get rid of Melissa Fahn is the day I stop caring about this series, no doubt.

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        Yeah man, she completely makes Neptune her own. Its fantastic.

        • Raharu95

          Agreed. Unfortunately, she seems to have been replaced (human voice only) in HDN MK2. Either that or Melissa had a throath problem during recording -_-. Who is Neptunes new Human voice (which I hope does not stick) anyway?

          • FitzpatrickPhillips

            Nah, that was still Melissa Fahn in Mk2.

          • Raharu95

            (Reply to the one who replier to me)

            That is
            surprise to me. She does not sound the same. I honestly thought they had replaced her

    • I didn’t know Neptune’s voice actor’s name, but I agree that I absolutely love what she’s done with the character. I normally don’t care at all about little girl characters, I’m either indifferent or loathe them, but Melissa made me actually think of Neptune is cool and awesome. First time a character like that interested me.

  • AzureNova

    Wow, Neptunia V is going to be awesome! The new features and characters sound cool and bad ass. Come one now, with names like “ANONEDEATH” and “ARCDECISION” how can you not love them lol =^_^=

  • Neat concepts, both the seven sages and the informant system. The game having an informant system implies IF or someone like her existing in the game, since it would play best from the notion of the Guild she belongs to.

    I’m glad to read that one of the sages will be a male character. While I do very much like a deluge of female characters, I felt it was seriously hurting the series that there wasn’t a single actual male character in sight. Pirachu and the robotic lords in mk2 don’t really count because none of them are humanoid.

  • ivanchu77
    • Elemiel

      Is that an actual human male?!

      • Raharu95

        (Dramatic music plays)


        Ishihara sure got fat.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       loling…loling hard at that last one.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      The only male in the game and its some fat old guy? Laaame. Also why is Pirachu back? I hated that damn rat…

    • boundries_san

      Ohh we still have Pikachu… uups Pirachu on this game?? C’mon COMPA!!! Time for some love here lol.

  • “Anonedeath, a young girl wearing a pink gothic lolita style dress, is one of Neptunia V’s villains and she has a giant mech with her.”

    Look below ANONEDEATH’s name in the scan “The Stylish Okama” young girl doesn’t exactly describe them all that well ~
