We’ve mentioned Compile Heart’s game about the game industry, Super Dimension Game Neptune, several times. It’s the game with moe-ified video game company mascots where console goddess fight the evil Majicon, the Japanese term for Nintendo DS flash carts.
Neptune was not at E3 since it has not been announced for any region other than Japan. But, I’d hold off on importing the PlayStation 3 game. Chances are good that Neptune will be localized. During an interview with Haru Akenaga, President of NIS America, I asked him about Neptune.
“All I can say now is Idea Factory asked us to localize the game for the US and Europe. We are eager to do that. We are in discussion about the conditions for licensing the title,” Akenaga replied. “The deal is almost done.”
Check back later for the full interview, which covers topics like Hit Maker titles, Sakura Wars, Gust, and bunch of other games.
