I met up with Idea Factory this past weekend and since it’s a hot topic on Siliconera, I asked about bringing Hyperdimesnion Neptunia Mk-2 to North America.
"I read your interview with Mr. Akenaga saying no problem," said Damien Urvois, Business Development Manager. "You know, I called him right away to say the contract is ready anytime. It all depends on the fans. The title is not even released in Japan, we will release it next month."
"The title is so nice, so funny with all of the cameos we’ve done. Especially with Atelier, NIS, with Prinny, and also the participation of Mr. Inafune with the Creator’s Sword. There are so many gags and cameos in the game and we would like to see the title released in the United States."
"Maryo" and Enoch from El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron appearing in the Twitter-like interface are some of the gags Damien was talking about. We’ve seen the Atelier cameos with pies all over the screen, but I think the Prinny information is new.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk. 2 will be available in Japan on August 18. The limited edition comes with these figures of Nepgear and Neptune.
