Neptunia And The New CPU Friends Gear Up For Sting’s Strategy RPG

By Spencer . April 6, 2014 . 11:42pm

It’s nice to see Sting making strategy RPGs again. Games like Yggdra Union were their forte, but recently they’ve been making visual novels like Date A Live: Rinne Utopia. Planet Destroyer Black Heart is a spinoff with Noire from Lastation and characters that parody different video game series.


Check out the special attacks and peek inside Noire’s room in the latest trailer. Planet Destroyer Black Heart is slated for release on May 29 on PlayStation Vita.

  • I was so tempted to get this but I’m holding of for an English release, if they’re doing idol PP they’ve got to localise this

  • Landale

    Pretty sure this is the same video from back in February.
    That particular video was pulled, but looking at the discussion on that page, all the stuff regarding things at certain times on the video matches up to this “new” one. The figure, CD, and art book bit toward the end might be new though I think?
    Edit: Yeah, same video with a little bit added in. They pulled the video here
    and replaced it with
    Both videos were replaced a couple days ago. Both of the video descriptions mention an edit.

    As if I wasn’t already a sucker for Strategy RPGs, these game console/game series personification cuties pretty much seal the deal. I just can’t get over how awesome genderbent Solid Snake here, Rid is.
    “It’s showtime.”

    • Liamv2

      Wait is she watching Noire in the shower?

      • TheGioG

        With this fine buildup of harem-class ladies, I wouldn’t put it past her. And here I though Peace Walker’s “Date with Paz” headed to new fan service levels, but this…
        Rid: “Let’s take a walk on the beach, Noire. We’ll collect shells, eat some sea salt ice cream, and maybe I can take a gander at some fine twin-tailed tsundere booty later… I-I mean…”

    • God

      Her camo index is of a 100%!

  • Dragard Kaos

    I’d like to see a new Dept. Heaven game for Vita.

    • Ash_Riot

      We won’t be getting anything like that, just these pandering fanservice games instead.

      • Brandonmkii

        And the world is all the better for it.

  • John Hayabusa

    I wish this game had a girl based on the Devil May Cry/Ninja Gaiden series. Would be great to see a genderbent Dante/Vergil/Ryu fighting alongside Noire (and maybe entering her harem as well :) ).

    • Landale

      There is one more slot, though I doubt it’ll be a 4th Capcom girl. Personally I’m hoping for some Sega or Atlus love. An original Phantasy Star series based girl would be nice, and that series has been referenced several times by the Neptunia series as it is so it’s not like that’s out of the question.

      • TheExile285

        I want a God Eater-chan! :V

        • DyLaN

          I’d say the last one is probably for the villain, but you never know.

  • fyi1191

    I really hope Noire will at least get another EXE drive. This is HER game after all.
    0.23 Neptune’s time is over!

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Aw maan. If PP can make it to NA/EU, I guess this has a chance too.
    Also, that figurine of Noire… ALL OF MY WANT!!!

    • Histirea

      I’m pretty damn sure our lovely goddess will showcase her blushing twintailed beauty for the entire world. Guaranteed that if nothing bad happens, the entire Hyperdimension Neptunia series will be localized.

  • WyattEpp

    I’m a bit curious who decided putting a conversation at the same volume as the vocal track was a good idea.

  • So hyped for this game! The animation looks so much more smoother than Victory’s. I can’t wait to play with Jeneria G.

    Also, I need those Re’Birth titles too.

  • Maksim Tsirulnik

    Once again, I get to use this. It’s at 2:46 in case it doesn’t link properly.

    • Tyler Beale

      How does that event have to do with the article?

      • Maksim Tsirulnik

        The title for the article: “Neptunia And The New CPU Friends Gear Up For Sting’s Strategy RPG”

        Neptune was called Neptunia…again.

        • Tyler Beale


          Then again, ShadowElite08 on YouTube says “Hyperdimension Neptune” instead of Hyperdimension Neptunia. Wait….he also called it Hyperdimentional Neptune…

          Goddammit, that last one better not stick with me…

  • Raw

    Stuff from Sting gets an instant buy from me. Their games are godlike. Sad to see they won’t use 2D graphics for this game thou.

  • Gonna have fun with this one =^_^=

  • DyLaN

    Apparently there several audio drama in the OP single of Noire game. Details courtesy of xizro345:

    Noire and her 21 friends

    Noire is working, stops a bit and feels a little tired.She wonders if she can do something fun with her 21 friends… And she wakes up, and she’s told there’s a party waiting for her, since she’s the leading character.

    At the party she gets some greetings and praise from Brossa and Bio among others, also stops an argument between Moruu and Win (both of them want Noire to do what they want – monster hunting for Moruu, football for Win).

    Little Rain and Ain Al praise her as well (Ain Al going for a sort of epic speech). Jeneria G tells Noire the stage for the party is almost ready, Noire wonders what it’s supposed to be used for, and Puuna seems a little surprised she forgot about it.

    Noire realizes what that means, but before she can do anything, Sango bursts on the stage saying only her is allowed to be on the stage with Noire…before getting kicked off by Estelle (who says her timing was “legendary”).

    Noire is still hesitant though, and gets a sort of encouragement by Lady Wakku, who is more interested in the food provided.

    Ai Mizushima announces that the stage is ready, and she’s followed by Tsunemi. Riddo adds (mixing words up) that it’s a way to help her relax after work. She’s basically pushed on the stage (with help from Saori), despite her protests.She

    Everyone cheers Noire, and she feels really happy…But it turns out it was all a dream. She feels she can rest a bit…Then hears someone running off. She quickly realizes is Neptune that caught her at the worst possible moment. Very embarassed, she immediately runs after her.
    The other two dramas are Noire as a system message voice and Noire writing a letter. The letter is a letter that Noire writes to her partner (she calls him/her like that, but gender is never mentioned), being tsundere as usual, casually mentioning engagement before saying it was a mistake, and saying they’ve been watching over each other backs. It’s nothing special, really.
    Cover of the ED single.
    In other non related news, it seems like IF/CH opened a twitter acc together.
