Neptunia V Adds One More Console Mascot – .hack Developer CyberConnect2

By Spencer . August 28, 2012 . 1:13am

Neptunia V comes out on August 30 and Summon Division Manager Izawa announced one more moe-ified mascot. CyberConnect2, developer of .hack and the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series, will be in Neptunia V.


No clue what CyberConnect2 will look like, but I imagine an energetic character in a Sage Naruto costume would work and be a homage to CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama. If you haven’t seen Marvelous AQL and Broccoli, the other two new characters in Neptunia V, check out this post.

    Sage Naruto outfit would be alright, though I’d rather like to see a .hack-looking character. Looking forward to seeing it! 

  • XypherCode

    A G.U. character would be nice with summoning techniques. xD

  • brian yep

    Sexy no Jutsu with a dothack-ish costume.

  • MrKappa

    They better not have ANY Naruto influence in her design. It needs to be purely .hack because that is their game and that is what they should be known for.

    • malek86

      Considering the CC2 head is apparently a huge Naruto fan, I’m not so sure about that. Maybe he’d be the one to ask for a Naruto influence (that’s if Namco will allow it).

    • $30632660

      They USED to be known for .hack, now all they are known for is milking Naruto like a Call of Duty game.

  • Please oh PLEASE let it be a Caninu/Felineko.

  • $10 that this mascot wears the Sage Naruto coat and her skin covered in bandages…

    • If it were me, I’d have her with a LOT of tattoos. Those seem to be very prevalent in Asura’s Wrath and .hack.

      Let’s also hope she has some Avatar or whatever as a supermove.

  • N2O1990

    I heard this getting anime

  • z_merquise

    There’s a higher chance that it would be based on .hack. Personally, I would prefer something based on Asura’s Wrath. I would really like to see an angry and tough lady drawn by Tsunako.

      NEPTUNE: O_O Damn girl, chill…

  • Watahashi

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they used Piros the 3rd. His backstory as a graphic designer for The World would even sort of fit in the Neptunia universe.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Please don’t let this cameo be a damn Naruto reference. Do something representative of one of their original properties like The Little Tail Bronx or Asura’s Wrath.


      After Marvelous’ ninja babe was introduced, they may opt for a different kind of character for variety…

  • Neophoton

    I’d rather it be something CC2 made themselves, like Little Tail Bronx, Asura’s Wrath, or .hack. Considering, y’know, Naruto wasn’t something they created.

    • DemonKingAsura

       Maybe it will be a female version of asura, with forms that appear over the course of the game that reflect all of Asura’s Transformations.

  • Landale

    Would be rather nice to see a .hack styled character. Could be a cosplaying friend of Vert’s from one of her online games.

    Also, I haven’t seen it brought up yet, but looks like Mages is in too. 5pb by a new name, or new character entirely I don’t know. Running the page through google turns up this as the list so far though: Broccoli Co., Marvelous AQL Inc., Japan Falcom, MAGES. Co., Ltd. CyberConnect2
