Here’s Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory’s CPU Transformations And Battles

By Ishaan . January 16, 2013 . 8:17pm


Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory is out in March, and NIS America shared two videos of the game this evening, showing off general battles and CPU form footage, which demonstrates special attacks. You can take at the first video above and the second one below it.



Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory is slated for release on March 12th in North America and March 15th in Europe. The third game takes place in a dimension that looks like a Gameindustri of the ‘80s, which has enemies called the Seven Sages. And yes, Mega Man creator, Keiji Inafune, is back with more cameos.

  • I like how Inafune Sword V is clearly visible in Neptune’s attack list in the second video, but isn’t used. XD

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Man, that buttery smooth frame rate. Have CH finally done it? A completely smooth game?

    • Brion Valkerion

      I super doubt it haha.

    • DesmaX

      Yeah. And look at those graphics… It looks like a PS3 game now

    • zazza345

      Nope, the game still has frame issues, though less than mk2.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      nope not really

      • DesmaX

        … oh. It’s just some lag issues sometimes, or it’s as bad as Mugen Souls?

        • haisihwait

          I say the lag in Mugen Souls is a bit worse than Neptunia mk2.

          So if this is better than Mk2, then it must only lag rarely.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          lag and framerate but not like mugen souls

  • DesmaX

    … The second video made me question the necessity of screaming the name of your attack.

  • brian yep

    Does anyone else think that voice acting in the second video was bad?

    • ElRobotico

      Not only in the second video.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      So i take it you thought the acting was bad in the last ones?its the same actors.

    • $24431191

      They’re both atrocious. I don’t mean any offense to anyone who likes them either. Just stating my opinion.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        I was going to post in snark but I’m not and just going to ask How.

        • $24431191

          How what? I just don’t think they sound good in my opinion.

    • Barrit

      I didn’t like either one. 3 of them sound almost the same. I remember them having more distinct voices in the JP dub. I have to side what someone else said in a different comment that “moe doesn’t really work in English”. In JP, some of the characters sound cute, where as in English they sound like they are *trying* to sound cute. (if that makes sense). Also, I noticed in English dubs, females tend to sound kinda ‘bratty’, which doesn’t quite fit their personalities.

  • As much as I’m looking forward to this, the music turns me off since the first damn game. It honestly can’t be so hard to make some decent’s just so absolutely unspecial, unemotional and outright sleep inducing. Luckily I love everything else in this game.

    • DesmaX

      They called Nobuo Uematsu and Kenji Ito to make some tunes for the game. There good stuff in this, like:

      • That one’s fine, but the song that plays in the two videos above is the same as the first two games just remixed 300 times and still very bad. And even with that one, the soundtrack is just not something you’ll remember after beating the game, which makes me sad as music is a very important part of my gaming experience.

  • $24431191

    This is why dual audio was created. I’m really glad NISA includes it in all of the games they localize.

    • Xerain

      Well because of Atelier Ayesha you have to correct your statement to publish. They’re localizing it but not publishing it, and its not dual audio.

      • $24431191

        True enough.

      • xXDGFXx

        So… Japanese track…. ?

        • Alexander Marquis Starkey

          No, English Dub.

          • xXDGFXx

            This is terrible news…

    • artemisthemp

      Happy NISA included JP audio in HDN V else I would cry

  • Randy Marsh

    All I can say about the dub is that Plutia’s voice sounds less painful in English.

    • zazza345

      I really don’t get the hate for Pururut’s Japanese voice though. I think she sounds fine.

      • Randy Marsh

        Well for me, I just hated how she sounds like she’s moaning everything she says. Hating women moan, I know I must sound insane.

  • Eric Harris

    I’m getting kind of tired of Neptunia. I loved the first, but after MK2, Mugen Souls, Nep V it’s all games built around simular engine and it’s just getting kinda old. I’m way more looking forward to Ni no Kuni and Tales of Xillia.

    • Stranger On The Road

      interesting, what does the fact that games share a similar engine –or better, the same engine– have to do with whether a gamer would like them or not?

      Each game bring its own world and own story with it, what is wrong with their graphics looking as good as an anime? On the contrary to your argument, I like this similar engine; and I wonder if the next generation of consoles will give me 3D graphics closer to what we saw in Love Live 5th single, Wonderful Rush; but in real time!

      Ever heard of the Epic game engine? Do you dislike all of the games that made use of it?

      Note, I’m only replying to the ‘engine’ bit of you post, I’m not ignoring the rest, I just have no comment on that.

  • gamefreak86

    Got it preordered. looking sweet.

  • IshimaruKaito

    i dont remember blanc’s voice being so soft

  • SpecDotSign

    Man this game looks last gen. And am I the only one who noticed the Final Fantasy fanfare theme being hummed in the first video after Neptune leveled up? O.o

    • DesmaX

      That was in mk2 too

  • This game looks sweet

  • Had this pre-ordered since day 1. Can’t wait for this! =^_^=

  • Neppygear

    I think Neptunia’s dubbing is usually really good, but Plutia’s voice acting is just… no.

  • Thomas Clemons

    Do you need to have played the other games to understand this one? Never played this series

    • RoxasTheUnknown1

      It helps too have played mk2 before V to be familiar but you dont need too as V has a massive recap of mk2. And mk2 and V are not connected too the original game.

      • DriftSlave

        Actually Nep1 to mk.2 just got a overdose of reboot syndrome, the events of the first game did happen….just that Complie Heart hasn’t given us a clear How yet(Anime looks like the reboot). Hell Mk.2 makes note of Celesita and thats something only in the first game.

        Its Ironic you say that too because NepV is actually closer to Nep1 then mk.2(ignoring the overall gameplay mechanics). Not to mention the return of moving artwork for skits(which are back to being nep1 long and having the ability to replay them) and well Arfoire looking like Arfoire again. Think of things in the Nep series as a constant work in progress up until NepV. I believe the current CPU(Current GameIndustri) forms are also Reboots since the anime seems to go off these designs.

  • ivanchu77

    No wonder people prefer japanese voices

  • RoxasTheUnknown1

    Yay eng cast how I miss thee! Nep~<3. Hmm sounds like they had Melissa change it up a bit as Purple Heart though. Still sounds good.

  • Kai2591

    Moe does not work in English.

    • RoxasTheUnknown1

      It does for me. This series cast in jp just doesnt do it for me. I absolutely cant stand Rie Tanakas performance as Neptune. Its just bad too me. The FF fanfare. Horrible in jp. Yet here its like it should be.

      • Kai2591

        I see…Perhaps I should have written ‘does not work in English for me’.
        To each their own, and I respect your personal preference ;)

        • RoxasTheUnknown1

          True. Im not against people having preferences. Its just how they present it. I actually like Jp Pururut. Vert, Blanc, and Histy. I love their english counterparts though and dont ever want a jp dubbed only Nep game. I’d rather they just keep dual and every one stay happy. xD

          • Leon_Tekashi

            Yup, to tell you the truth, dual audio = both sides are happy.

  • Z

    I want teen Compa, please :D

  • Hoshi星

    Iris Heart’s voice isn’t sadistic enough :(
