    I can’t believe they fucked that up in the trailer. What is QC doing?

  • tubers

    Game seems running consistently below 30 fps.. then again, the gameplay might not really require high framerates.. (I think this is turn based).

    • Hikari Langley

      The sad but usual IF/CH issues, they can’t work on a decent frame rate to save a life.

      • DyLaN

        FFF fps is apparently very good when its non-streaming/action heavy scene though.

        • Hikari Langley

          Heeeeckk no! The models move jaggy, the battle are jaggy. It’s just like Neptunia Victory.

          • DyLaN

            Oh well, since all I have is the opinions frm NISA forum and I don’t have it so I can’t say anything else abt it.

  • I heard compile heart as “oppai heart” , i must be really tired

  • Kayriss Wins

    I hope they release both remakes in NA, I doubt they won’t but still I’m nervous, I’ve only played the Victory and I;m planing to catch up with the first two games on the Vita versions.

    • cloudcaelum

      Why you just hoped for NA, why no for World? You selfish…

      • Anesia Hunter

        i hope you’re joking, but if you’re not calm down. we want EU players to get to enjoy lots of great video games too.

      • MXC

        But remember Vita is region-free! Think of the possibilities!

        • Kayriss Wins

          I’m not keen on importing, I’d prefer knowing whats going on if I’m going to play the game otherwise I’ll be lost lol.

          • MXC

            Oh no I was telling cloudcaelum if its localized in English he can just import it from the states. I know how difficult it is to play a japanese game even with my current JPLT level.

  • I liked everything that I saw. Now all that’s left is to wait and see what they do with the Re;Birth games =^_^=

  • DarkLight

    I always wanted play the Hyperdimension Neptunia Games,hope they bring this over.

    • Anewme…Again

      If Nisa can bring PP here, i really doubt they won’t localise this.

      • Orpheus

        Well, PP doesn’t really require a big budget to localize.
        Re;birth, on the other hand…

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          Hmm but they are bringing the first over so maybe

          • MXC

            I think they are testing the Vita audience with PP to see if they should or shouldn’t which is why despite not having played any Neputunia games before (due to lack of PS3) I will be buying PP hopefully there are no spoilers.

          • Pipe

            You really shouldn’t start this series with PP. I played it when it came out and compared to the other Neptune games it’s really … well, boring. It isn’t a game, it’s more of a VN but it doesn’t have an interesting story either. For example the game tells you about the antagonists “MOB48” at the beginning and that it’s your main goal to beat them, but you never meet them. They are never shown and very rarely talked about(2-3 times). You never face-off against them. That’s certainly not how a game should treat the main enemy.
            Other then that there isn’t much to do in this “game” except to read text and watch them dance. Even that aspect is very lacking, the game only has 5 songs, which is a joke for a idol game and while games like [email protected] have at least some rhythm-game elements there is nothing like that in PP. The game is very bare bones and sold very bad in Japan after its fist week. There were also a lot of fans that complained about it too so you shouldn’t blindly buy it before watching some videos about it.
            If you want to get into this series you should start with mk2 and then Victory. If you like the characters and want more you can try the first game which has it’s own story and is not connected to the other games, but be warned, the gameplay isn’t as good.

          • MXC

            Damn now I feel conflicted. I mean I don’t have a PS3 but I do have a vita since I’m more of a portable gamer(smartphone not included) and was hoping that this may increase likelihood for localization of the other ports so that I can finally play the games. But thanks for the advice, I’ll be sure to consider what you said.

          • Pipe

            Nisa knows that the game sold bad in Japan so they won’t expect very high sales. Also they localize Mugen Souls Z right after the fist one flopped. Neptunia is a very successful and liked series, so you shouldn’t worry too much about that.
            But like I said watch some videos about PP. I certainly didn’t enjoy it even though I absolutely love the other games and regretted buying it, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t like it.

            I also played the first Re;birth and it’s probably the best game in the series right now. So if that gets localized you should keep an eye out for it.

      • Demeanor

        I tried the PP demo, it’s fun!!! XD Dealing with all dem Nep-Nep antics for 20 days lol. (anyone figure out how to morph into Purple Heart during a live?)
        I crave moar Neptunia. :P

      • AkiraScare

        NIS is gonna give us PP.. hehehe…
        Yeah cant wait for it…. (^_^)

  • Lucky Dan

    So when the Second Video Game Crash Happens will Lowee, Green Heart and Black Heart will become the bad guys in the next Neptune games?

  • cyberkinghardy

    I was wondering who will be the DLC char for this, since they’ve already brought Pururut and Pishe on Re;Birth 1…wishing for a playable Rei character..but I guess it’s impossible.

  • Prinny Dood

    Please localize this and the first one

  • Prinny Dood

    Did anyone else the ps vita in the dump at 1:44.

    • Landale

      Your mention of the time is a bit off, but yes. Also looks more like a PSP than a Vita to me. That particular location actually has things resembling pretty much any non-current system scattered about.

  • alixraen

    I haven’t even finished this on PS3 ;w;

  • artemisthemp

    I hope RED is recruit able early in Re; Birth 2

  • AkiraScare

    Oh My Loli Goddess… Bring this Over!!!! Uncensored PLZ!!! (0_0)

  • AkiraScare

    Im ready to waste my money on this like i always do with the dlc on every HDN game (^_^)

  • MXC

    Come on NISA! The Vita is finally growing lets see this come over along with the first one. I swear Ill buy the Neputunia PP game first though to prove my support.

  • Nerroth

    EDIT: Never mind, I didn’t see that someone else got to the “fixed” trailer further down the thread. Sorry.

    I wonder how long it’ll be before they show a “Maker” trailer this time around, like they did for Re; Birth 1?
