Takahashi Meijin’s Rival Summoned For Neptunia V

By Spencer . June 15, 2012 . 12:12am

Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 brought the former Hudson executive with the fastest fingers, Takahashi Meijin, into the PlayStation 3 game for a cameo. It looks like his rival Mouri Meijin has been "summoned" by Izawa for Neptunia V.


Mouri and Takahashi competed in the film Game King and if you haven’t seen it before watch this clip of the two video game masters "training." We’re not sure what Mouri Meijin is doing in Neptunia V, but if Inafune can be a train… I guess it’s anything.


Dengeki PlayStation also revealed Yellow Heart a new voluptuous goddess described with an innocent personality. It sounds like Yellow Heart is one of the game’s enemy’s since she’s standing in Neptune’s way. New screenshots show a soccer ball enemy… is this a jab at Inazuma Eleven?


Neptunia V comes out for PlayStation 3 on August 30.

    omg this game is gnna be fantastic i just hope it gets a US release…..i doubt it wouldn’t since the others came

  • Learii

    who Mouri Meijin?

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Wuttt??? U don’t know Mouri Meijin???The only human that can steal a match from Takahashi Meijin on Game King? Blasphemy!!!

  • DanteJones

    Found a picture of Yellow Heart:
    I wonder if she’ll join the party at some point.

    • Landale

      At first, the face kinda reminded me of Compa. But that’s not the hypothetical Compa CPU look from mkII’s DLC, which is good I suppose. I’d be sad if the first impression was right and she ended up an enemy even for awhile. x.x

      • Hoshi星

        She does somewhat look like Compa and apparently she’s a klutz. So, maybe Yellow Heart is Compa’s ancestor/mom

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Yellow ehh??? Wonderswan there?^^

    • Luna Kazemaru

      A pc goddess about time

      • PC – Most powerful = Biggest bust
        Awww yeah, baby.

    • Landale

      Just noticed something that’s causing me to have some maybe crazy speculation; Vert’s in that picture. I’ve seen a few people say V’s Vert is most likely a personification of the MSX this time around, not quite a console not quite a computer. Assuming the PC goddess thing is right, maybe Yellow Heart is Vert’s sister? Would be rather interesting, considering according to the first article we had on the game mentioned Leanbox as an invading country.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        If thats the case that explains the boob size lol JK hopefully it is vert sister.

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        I doubt Yellow Heart is Vert’s sister. In the promo pics, there is a little picture of Vert going “ま…まさか…そんな…” at Yellow heart’s announcement. Which means she’s surprised and challenged at DAT BREAST SIZE.

        • zazza345

          THe caption near says “Bigger than Vert’s!?” as well….

        • Landale

          It’s not so much that the thought came to mind just because of Vert being in that image that there must be a connection. More so that the picture brings to mind that there’s some similarities to them in design, yes mostly just the busty blonde thing, and, assuming speculation on personifications are accurate, a related real world source. Doesn’t necessarily need to be a sister I suppose, could be a cousin I suppose. Not like being related or not would stop one from feeling challenged.

    • Yellow Heart looks really cute. This game just continues to pique my interest.

    • Nee Nee

      I like her non goddess form more. Screw the ginormous bust.

      • Landale

        Non goddess form? I’d like to see this.

        • Nee Nee

          But I thought that yellow haired loli girl was her non goddess form. Was I wrong? ><

  • Actually, the soccer ball, gel enemies, and koopa troopa ripoffs from previous screenshots are parodies of famous developers. Here’s an image a friend of mine found that lists each one:


    As you can see, the Koopa is none other that Miyamoto. xD

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Lol the gel enemies is parody of Iwata there lololol. And to think that they face does give some resemblance there.^^

    • LolWUT.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips


    • Fire.fire.kun

      The question that I want to ask is are these parodies done out of love or spite?

      I highly doubt the latter. xD

    • That’s awesome
      Next time they should make Banana Iwata and add few more people like Hideo Kojima :D

  • No

    Yellow Heart is PC Engine, if you look closely, you will see some familiar elements.

    • Yeah…at her huge breast. :/

  • This looks…..crazy hilarious. Will lookup the gameplay vids when its out.

  • Crevox

    I did enjoy the first two games… but yeaah gonna pass on this one. Seems to be going down a path that I’m not interested in and just looks so similar, again.

    • Raharu95

      What do you mean?

      • Crevox

        I like the 7 dislikes…

        The first game was cool, the second one was neat/new battle system but still more of the same for the most part. I’m just burnt out on it now and don’t really want to play a 3rd.

        It’s enough for me.

    • Arrei

      If you enjoyed the first two isn’t that all the more reason to pick this one up? Since they’re working hard to rectify the weaknesses of previous entries with each installment, you’d end up enjoying it a lot more.

  • Raharu95

    Will Red-chan be in this game? Thats the only thing that will assure by purchase more than it already has.

    • zazza345

      Doesn’t look like it. There will be some more game makers personifications, but they haven’t been announced yet. Also, with Gust being acquired by Tecmo Koei I doubt she’ll be back.

      • malek86

        But Koei publishes the game in Europe, so I don’t think they are too opposed to it. They might let them keep using the character.

        • Raharu95

          What did Koei published?

      • Raharu95

        There is a difference between Gust and Red’s situation. Red was acquired by a chinese company. Red-chan is practically the personification of what chinese don’t want in gaming (don’t believe? Red-chan looks for husbamds in the chinese translation). It makes sense that they would not alliw her character to come back in mk-2. Gust is a different story. I don’t see any reason for Keoi to oppose other than the game getting more moe the more installments it gets.

        • zazza345

          Yes but I somehow doubt Koei will allow it. The fact that it’s not present (for now) in the copyrights notice is a sign, IMO:

          • Raharu95

            Well, all we gotta do is wait. Red has slim chance to none in coming back. Gust has a chance at the very least. Maybe the people at gust could still have a say about their characters or property. Lets just hope for the best.

  • ivanchu77

    Also CH is planning to release “If a Goddess were your wife” a drama CD were the Neptunia characters speak to you as if you were her husband, previews here:
    btw yellow heart reminds me waaaay to much to Compa, won´t be surprised if she ends being her CPU form…

  • I’ll be getting this, I really enjoyed mk2 (I even got the platinum)

    But I just want to see the batlle system in action

  • NorthernPatches

    Still debating on if I want mk2 or Graces. Though I want both and eventually want this one as well.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Why not both??^^ Both have their fun aspect there.^^
      Grace had a very solid battlesystem.^^ While mk2 is probably a very fun game to play especially if you know many old parody references there.^^

    • Arrei

      Graces is more solid, looks better, and plays a lot better. Mk2 can wait for when you’re in the mood for some cute silliness. Or if you’re looking for more visual-novel style gameplay.

  • OMG! OMG! OMG! Soooooo Kawaiiii <3 (Foams from mouth)


  • Yay!

  • Brimfyre

    Never realized how much Neptune looks like 80s Meg Ryan until now.

  • Repede91

    YES! Pirachu is in it!

  • Zephyr2010

    Well, I’m just going to leave my wallet over here, you know the drill…

  • Hey, I just had a thought… all playable characters so far are the CPUs, who are capable of flight… 

    Will we be able to have flying battles in this game? Because that’d be completely flipping awesome. Who agrees?
