    Wow wow, part 2 get released after the 1st part 3 months?
    Hope the 2nd one’s gonna be decent…

  • Sentsuizan_93

    …That’s quick…

  • refrain

    Playing Re;birth1 at the moment. It’s a great game. Can’t wait to import Re;birth2!

    Also, Histoire, Kei, Mina, and Chika will be playable in battle in Re;birth2

    • Kami nii

      agree here and I’m done with the game though I only got Good end since I could not read the story :(

      • TheExile285

        Beat it already? Also, the game has multiple endings? I need this game [in English] now!

        • Kami nii

          I beat it already, But only got Good end since I could not read the text, I believe there are 4 different ends including Good end,

          Edit: if only I could read Jap I might still be playing right now to get all possible endings :(
          Its really hard it’s like going in a cave without light and not knowing whats in it :(

          • refrain

            I only see there’re 2 trophy for the normal and true end. So there’re only 2 ending.

          • Kami nii

            Thanks for confirming I’m not really sure about how many endings so that info would help a lot :-)

          • ShadowDivz

            I’ve been told that “jap” is offensive.

            And instead to either spell it out, or say JPN/jpn.

            Just saying, what i heard.

  • Kami nii

    Played rebirth 1 and I’m impressed :) though I would not call it a remastered version but a new game cause almost everything is new highly recommend it to those who know Japanese and a Fan of the series,Localization plans might be close since they are localizing idol PP, :)

  • TheExile285

    I know NISA is busy with other games atm, but hopefully when they announce Rebith 1 and this, it won’t take them long.

  • FlyingPony

    Good. Can’t wait for the game.

  • Kornelious

    It’s not that I’m not happy that we’re getting Mugen Souls Z and the Hyperdimension Idol game, but NISA has never had more contenders for localization. I kinda wish that they’d focus on the Rebirth’s and Fairy Fencer F

    • ShadowDivz

      Holy shit Hyperdimension PP is getting localized?!

      • Vash bane

        hmhm I was in one of the past articles I think (forgot which one)

        • ShadowDivz

          Dude that’s sweet. Il finally get to try an idol game.
          And it’s with characters im familiar with.

  • Nerroth

    There’s a teaser page up for Re; Birth 2 SISTERS GENERATION, along with a clip done by/with MMR:



    • AkiraScare

      Saw this last night a couple of min after it came out… sadly i coundt comment on it (TT_TT)

  • Now to wait for localization~

  • Aristides

    Western localization companies just can’t keep up with the trove of Vita releases. They all seem reluctant due to the Vita’s smaller install base, but boy does that small install base buys games! I hope next year we won’t see this huge accumulation of titles, hopefully the Vita TV can convince a few companies to ramp up Vita development.

    • Shippoyasha

      We really need more Xseeds in this world. I have respect for many game publishers and devs, but the way Xseed was pushing out ports in the PSP days was nothing short of heroic. Now that Vita seems to have piracy under control, gamers can hopefully reward guys like Xseed with solid sales.

    • It seems like Vita owners are extremely loyal and buy mostly every game that comes out. You can’t really say that much about other install bases.

  • Iffy’s expression about the news is hilarious =)

    Hope we get a localization announcement for Re;birth 1 soon too.

  • Noire

    So…it’s time for Uni’s turn.

  • Awesome, now they just need to localize the first one.

  • leingod

    They’re not wasting any time, huh? I just wanna know how the first one compares to the PS3 version in terms of performance… that’s what turned me off from the original.

    • Kami nii

      IMO Rebirth is better in terms of Gameplay of course it would be hard to understand this if you really never played the 1st game, but rebirth is still a good start if your planning on playing the series, in terms of performance during my play through I haven’t experience a problem since I started playing I would give it a good performance, :)

      PS: regarding the story I can’t help you with that since I don’t understand the story much because of the language barrier but it is a bit different from the original game,

  • Brotato Chip

    wheres my Noire game damn it

    • refrain

      In the next Dengeki issue, 2 weeks from now.

  • darkbartz

    Well, I guess it makes sense for it to be done so fast. The battle system doesn’t need an overhaul this time, so there’s less things to change. Might not get this if there isn’t really much changes…

  • Loli Summoner

    I don’t know if I will get this one,it was are ready pretty good,but the first one on the other hand,I will get that when it get’s localized because the original was horrible.Honestly it wasn’t for the gameplay…will kinda, but it was the freaking, death defying,ear bleeding, most horrible thing I ever heard…the music!

  • AnimeRemix

    Well, that’s quite fast…

    So… Compile Hearts… How about that Neptunia 4?

    • artemisthemp

      Well they need to make Re; Birth 3 before they can make a fourt Neptunia game :P

  • Zalin

    This is great news! I thought mk2 was the weakest game out of the series, but I do love the characters that this game spawned. Will be day one purchase like rebirth 1 if they should get localized, i’m sure they will though.

  • AkiraScare

    Compile Heart “Easy Money Guys lets just remake everything” (^_^)

    • ShadowDivz


      As hard as this is to believe. Maybe not everyone got to play the originals and maybe some would prefer playing on the go.

      • AkiraScare

        And sadly theres people like me who have played it but if it got localized would end up buying it for the new content (TT_TT) my poor wallet (TT_TT)

        • ShadowDivz

          Isn’t it pretty much the same game?

          • refrain

            No, it’s that everyone think. Re;birth1 is like a completly new game compare to HDN1. The story is so much different so I think Re;birth2 will be like that too

          • Guest

            They changed some minor details – Compa able to hear Histoire

          • Kami nii

            I agree with these guys believe me I also played the game it is a new game not a remake,

          • AkiraScare

            They took out Gust (TT_TT) and 5pb but added tekken and …. Falcon? but yeah they also remade the graphics to look like Victory and added new monsters… Just remember its in Japanese so dont just buy it unless you can understand it (^_^)

          • ShadowDivz

            Aww, i liked 5pb. But i find tekken cooler.

        • refrain

          Just buy it. I played Re;birth1, It’s like a completly new game. Not just a simple remake. The story is so much different too.
