Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 Has Different Guest Mascots Like Tekken-Chan

By Spencer . September 24, 2013 . 1:47am

image Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 like the other Neptunia games turns video game companies into characters. Although, the list of company cameos is different from Hyperdimension Neptunia. Players will be able to interact with Broccoli, Mages, Marvelous, CyberConnect2, Falcom, and Tekken within the main story. These characters can join our party too.


That’s a pretty big change and it makes sense since Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 is based on Neptunia V, so Neptunia fans probably remember who the girl on the right is. A linger question remains about Red though since Red Entertainment was acquired we haven’t seen her in any other games. Also, Afilia Saga will sing a new ending theme song for the game.


Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 is slated for release on October 31.

    I wonder if 5pb will reprise her role in-game, she did have a part in the anime, but she wasn’t in Victory.

  • KonniSekai

      Something seems fishy here 0_0

      • DyLaN

        The upvotes? I have no idea.

    • Hmm… that’s weird. I wonder if she’ll play some role in the story or just be DLC…

  • ivanchu77

    Whoa, didn´t expect all of them to return XD , but i´m glad they did

    Any words about if NISA and Gust are going to be playable?

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Clearly this a precursor to a real Tekken game on Vita.

  • Kami nii

    I need HDN games on my Ps vita especially Noire’s own game!! :)

    • TheExile285

      holy ****! never seen so many up-votes on Siliconera before…..

      • Learii

        lol you telling me

      • Tyler Beale

        Yeah, there’s more upvotes here than that time I posted a few questions to ask Square Enix (yes, I made that sound like a Family Guy flashback).

      • Kitestwinblades

        ∑(;°Д°) In only 7 hours! Spread the Neptunia love!

    • Zikrayrus “Zikk” Dis Pear

      Is this… a record?!

    • Kami nii

      WTF?! I didn’t expect that

  • Rogerrmark

    I wonder if Marvelous will be a farmer,like HM games.

  • Zeidge

    Either a bug or somebody is REEEAAALLY happy to have upvoted some of the posts below over 300 times…

    • Notquitesure?

      Yeah wondering about that..

    • Demeanor

      Guys, didn’t Serah and Noel teach you anything at all? It’s a PARADOX, obviously!!! XD

  • refrain

    WTF is going on with dem up-votes? Anyway, I’ll just leave the vid here

    • Leon_Tekashi

      Hold up, that hidden character at the end of the video. Was that HDN related?

      • Landale

        She looks a bit like Pai. Virtua Fighter based character to go with Tekken maybe?

  • Godman

    Any chance in Capcom’s mascot showing up? I really liked her design, but she never showed up in mk2

  • Christopher Pierce

    Wheres mah Red

  • NekoDraga

    I seriously hope Nisa and Gust are still in.

    • KuroNathan

      I doubt they’ll remove chars, especially chars that have been in every game so far

      • X14

        NISA and Gust weren’t in Victory.

        • KuroNathan

          really? O.o well I didn’t play victory so I had no idea. They were in original 1 and mk 2 though.

          • X14

            Yeah, 5pb wasn’t in Victory either, so since they’re using the Victory system for the game it’s not looking promising for them returning, even if they had a part in the first game.

          • Leon_Tekashi

            But she was referenced so she’s still out there.

  • TheExile285

    Teken-chan looks moe.

    I can’t wait to play with CyberConnect2 and Falcom! :3

  • KuroNathan

    What if Comcept-chan is just Inafune in a HDD suit? >_>;

    • Leon_Tekashi

      You know, since Keiji Inafune is pretty close to CH from what I’ve seen, that’s actually a possibility of having a Comcept-Chan.

  • Leon_Tekashi

    Let’s do the math, 4 goddess + 4 candidates + the 6 V makers + plus IF and Compa, + the olds ones if they come back somehow. (NISA, Red, Gust, and 5pb,) = a total of 20 characters playable! Of course there might be DLC characters. There’s also Cave but idk.

  • artemisthemp

    HDN Re; Birth 1 without RED is sad.

    What about Gust or NISA?

    • Aristides

      I was just about to ask that same question. Where the heck is Gust and NIS?

      • artemisthemp

        Gust may not be in HDN Re;Birth 1, since Tecmo Koei brought them and same reason with .5pb (Think they is called Mages now).

        However NISA still exist

        • Raharu95

          Mages and 5pb are two different characters actualy. The Original 5pb still exist in the anime so the chances she will come back are not actually null. I’m worried about Red and Gust though, which is a real damn shame ;-;

  • refrain
  • IshimaruKaito

    i wonder why they left no trace of Red in the other 2 games…she was on my team ASAP when i got her….i hope she comes back!

    • refrain

      No hope. A chinese company bought her already.

  • I couldn’t be bothered to pick up the DLC characters in Victory since I’ve practically completed the game. Thank God for this remake! Killing multiple birds with a single stone – Perfect Combo!

    Just hope she’s in it. She’s too adorable not to be. Otherwise, I need to double dip.


    • TheExile285

      Who is dis?

      • Red from the original Hyperdimension Neptuniia.

    • Landale

      I kinda wish they’d just very slightly adjust her design, give her a new name, and put her back in.

      • That would probably be for the best.

    • Theob Vious Choice

      Red was an awesome character; when do you see a cute, female character looking to have a giant yuri harem? She is one of my favorite maker characters next to Gust and Broccoli, unfortunately I’ve heard it’s practically an impossibility we’ll see her again. I think the company she was based on had some licensing issues, I don’t exactly know 100% what happened, so I don’t really want to say something that may be false; but all in all, she’s a great character that there needs to be more of, everywhere.

      • She sounds like a very awesome character; I’m definitely going to have to double dip for this, now.

      • Time Sage

        the company she represents I believe was bought out and is now defunct, which is why she hasn’t appeared since

        • Theob Vious Choice

          That’s what I heard, but I couldn’t find any info on it, still a shame though.

  • Raharu95

    The comments make me happy. I’m so glad I’m not the only one that want’s Red-chan back ;-;

  • Neppygear

    yaaaasssss mages yaaaassssss

  • Demeanor

    Never got the NepV DLC (Platinum’d way before it was out) so this will be a VERY welcome change to boost variety! Definitely buying.

  • AkiraScare

    just keep bringing more new mascots… i wonder if they ever make a fighting game with all the mascots… that would be REALLY…ehhh
