New Battle Screenshots Straight From Gamindustri’s Golden Days

By Spencer . May 31, 2012 . 4:33pm


Compile Heart released three more screenshots from Neptunia V’s battle mode. That’s Neptunia above who traveled back in time to the Gamindustri of the ’80s. Noire and the other CPUs are in Neptunia V as playable characters.




Pururut is a new character introduced in Neptunia V and when she transforms into Iris Heart she’s the CPU of Planeptune.

    3rd screenshot: Why did they make Noir die? To show upskirt. Ah okay , move on.

    That aside, I hope we can un-zoom to see more what’s going on on the field.

    • Nitraion

      and that Hand monster near her about to do something…. XD

  • OverlordZetta

    How many times are you guys going to print she went to the past of Gamindustri? They said right off the bat she went into an alternate universe and it was the 80s THERE. The only thing relating to Gamindustri, unless they’re already retconning stuff, is Neptune.

    • Nothing’s been retconned, it’s probably just a bad translation on their part. Since you’re correct, Neptune is in a dimension that is “SIMILAR” to Gamindustri in the 80’s, but it’s not Gamindustri in the 80s.

      In fact, the original reveal said it’s not even called Gamindustri in that dimension.

      • OverlordZetta

        Yeah, exactly. I don’t remember the name, but it should be being called that, right?

        • There is no name revealed for it yet, in fact, ever since the reveal. They haven’t mentioned anything about the name, other than the fact the story takes place in an alternate dimension. =/

  • Again, the main character’s name is Neptune, not Neptunia.

    • Hey! Someone other than me pointed it out for once. :D
      But seriously, this has happened a lot since this series was localized.

    • AzureNova

      Also, don’t forget the famous Nep-Nep =^_^=

     I think this series should actually show worlds from defunct older games as part of the nostalgia factor instead of making up worlds. Like Wonder Boy, Fantasy Zone, Alex Kidd, etc

  • … Does anyone have a clue about who’s the guy that got “summoned” today?

    •  Masanobu Endo, or however his name is spelled.

        I went to that link Marcos Karal posted and I noticed the names listed: 4Gamer-chan, Aski-chan (ASCII?), Dengekiko-chan and Beep-chan. Are those confirmed new characters?

        • Dengekiko was a chirper character in Mk2, now she is an observer. Same with the others.

          Observers have replaced shares, they are basically like informants, their information and choosing whether to trust them or not can open new dungeons, events, give you items and the like.

          Among the NPCs from Mk2 there are new character that will act as observers. There is an observer who represents ASCII Media Works, 4Gamer, Beep, and various others. Including Nobou Uematsu’s band, the EarthBound Papas. (They are also composing music for the game)

  • Nitraion

    I sorta knew it if pururut is megadrive she is a platepune CPU XD
    it’s my first console i don’t know it so sexy back then lol
    i guess there is SNES?

  • In one word: Colorful. XD

  • Repede91

    The battle system in the first Neptunia really turned me off.

    Picked up mk2 on a whim 2 weeks ago and I’m kinda shocked by how much I love it. The combat reminds me of Eternal Sonata. The characters are cute and funny. Glad I gave the series a second chance.

    Any word if the candidates will be in part 3?

    • Actually, I too started playing mk2 just recently (A week ago), and I’m loving too.

      I can see Nepgear on the reserve slot on the first pictures, but I dunno about the rest. 

      • Repede91

        Good eye! As long as Nepgear and Uni are in I will be satisfied. I could live without Rom and Ram.

        • The product listing on HMV confirms them through voice actor credits, Gear, Uni, Rom, and Ram’s seiyuu are all listed.

          • Repede91

            Awesome, that’s great news.

    • Nitraion

      Lol i play it too recently and just got very,very,very bad ending… :|
      I agree with you in battle system as for candidate i wonder they give SNES and atari a candidate because pururut is megadrive they say.. XD

  • boundries_san

    Yeahhhh another news on Neptunia.^^ This game is looking better and better lol.(Panty panty panty!!!^^)

    Joking aside, it seems the battle system combine both the first and the second neptunia here.^^

  • Hyperdimension Neptunia; proving that Lavender is the new black.

  • Zoozbuh

    Will definitely be getting Neptunia V when it comes out in english~ I really didn’t expect to like Mk 2 as much as I did (since I had played the first game at a friend’s house and.. the gameplay left a lot to be desired) but now I’m totally a fan of the series ;D
