First Artwork From Hyperdimension Idol Neptunia PP

By Spencer . March 15, 2013 . 1:51am

As mentioned yesterday, Compile Heart is making a Hyperdimension Neptunia game for PlayStation Vita. No, it’s not a RPG. Hyperdimension Idol Neptunia PP is an idol simulation game. Here’s the game’s cover art and idol Neptunia.



Tamsoft, makers of the Onechanbara games and Dream C Club, is developing Hyperdimension Idol Neptunia PP, which is slated for release on June 20 in Japan.

    I was expecting 5pb on the cover.

    • because she’s already technically an “Idol” right? Using that knowledge, Nepgear, Umi, Rom, and Ram, should have chances too since they all had their debut in HDN Mk2. I know how you feel, I appreciate adorable Neptune as the cover though (MC perks you could call it).

    • artemisthemp

      5pb is dead. She is call Mage now

      • xXDGFXx

        Why :X

        • artemisthemp

          Can’t recall the reason and ain’t gonna go through 288 pages just to find the reason

    • So true. ‘hope we see her in the game…

  • Andrew McDowell

    Does anyone know what an idol simulation is? I know I sound stupid, but is it a musical rhythm kind of game like Project Diva?

    • xzeldax3

      It’s more like idolmaster.

      • Kevadu

        I’m guessing that if he was familiar with Idolmaster he wouldn’t be asking that question…

        Describing Idolmaster here since we don’t actually have any specifics on this game: Basically it’s a time-management simulation in which you have to do things like training, promotions, and of course actual concerts in order to increase the popularity of the idol(s) you’re managing. There is also a rhythm game-esque component to get the best performance during concerts and stuff, but that’s just one piece of the pie. There are other minigames for the training segments and also a light visual novel component in regard to the idols’ moods and stuff.

        Idolmaster is actually a pretty good game. If this is anything like that it will be interesting.

        • Andrew McDowell

          I see, thanks very much for your assistance guys, I appreciate it. The game seems pretty interesting now

    • ワン スャレ

      It’s like football manager, but you manage girls.

    • zazza345

      There is no concrete info on how the game is working. The official unveiling is this Sunday, from a Dengeki Playstation event.

  • malek86

    I wonder if Tamsoft being the developer means CH right now is working on another main game instead.

  • psycho_bandaid

    hm. Now I’m not so sure NISA will pick this one up. Not sure if I’m too into an idol sim game, but I’ll try anything once.

    • Sounds exactly like my line of thinking. I’ll certainly buy it if it’s brought over, but I’m not too certain it will be, and not completely sure I’ll enjoy it.

  • chobitsza

    I’ll pray for my beloved NISA to bring this up. No matter what others say!!

    • Amen lol

      • TheBlackgirl123

        I second that too!

        • Raharu95

          Thirded ;) Anything Hyerdimension Neptunia on the west is a plus for me.

    • Testsubject909

      I think we might have a hope for this one because of a few things.

      1. It’s an established series, while in no way as large as, say, Disgaea, it is still an established series so fans could be more open minded in the purchase of this game.

      2. We had Disgaea Infinite. That game was a pure graphic novel type adventure game, something you would not expect to be published over here in the west. If NISA was prepared to bring us Disgaea Infinite, a graphic novel game, we might have some chances at having Idol Neptunia brought over.

  • Callonia

    If nisa no pick this one up. I think i’ll just end my business with them. lol

    • Lilith

      I really hope you’re joking. NISA is one of the best publishers in terms of anime games. “Ending business” with them over one game is retarded.

      • Callonia

        I’m already annoyed over no neptune/noire for my android ;D

  • Randy Marsh

    The artwork is still great, as usual.

  • Oh dear. Too cute to resist.

  • lozffvii

    Every time I read the title I think of [PP], the abbreviation for “Product Proposal” from Mk2.

    Neptune 1(1)/1
    PSVita 0(0)/1
    Localisation 0(0)/1

    Neptune X Producer

    Damn, all I need is a Vita and a localisation. lol

    • Purple Producer lol =)

    • That’s… genius! XD

    • SprintsMcGee

      I’d like to have a localization, but I don’t need it =3

  • Sentsuizan_93

    That cover art is so damn cute…

  • Patrick Henry de Dios

    Ok. I’m going to like this a lot.

  • Zonic505

    “…makers of the Onechanbara games and Dream C Club”

    Why am I expecting some Dream C Club clothing to make an appearance now?

    • Bob

      He forgot to mention that they just came out with Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus too

  • zazza345

    The cover comes from the product page, just to report the source.

  • RoxasTheUnknown1

    Need some gameplay footage. NISA you know!

    • Mister_Nep

      I heard my name. Did you need something from me?

  • Neppygear

    Sol– oh wait I don’t have a Vita NEVER MIND

    • xXDGFXx

      Then go away.

      • Neppygear

        As a dedicated Nepper, am going to call rudeness.

        • xXDGFXx

          Pot calling the kettle black.

          • Neppygear

            I’m not a pot. Double rudeness!

  • CirnoLakes

    That dress is so adorable.

    Why are frills so amazing?

  • There’s a cuteness overload going on in my body right now. Hopefully I can finish this sentence before I………………………… X_X

    AzureNova <————- Exploded and went to Purple Paradise =^_^=

  • Picking mine up from AmiAmi

  • Dietrich

    …And now I will have NO regrets buying this

  • Bryce Ward

    “PP” :D

  • kaizin

    hoping we get this maybe we might after victory is released sure hope so.

  • Lester Paredes

    Not an RPG? that sucks for me, as I have little interest in a pop idol game. Unless there’s some sort of RPG mode where I can set her rise to stardom… that could be interesting…

  • RablaAndrews

    If I wanted to play [email protected], I’d, you know, play [email protected]

    • and you would have cleared IDOLMASTER by then, so you could actually need Idol Neptune
