Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 3: V Century: Colons Make the Game Go Faster has been confirmed for North American and European releases by Idea Factory International. The PS Vita remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory adds more to the story, along with dual language support in the form of downloadable Japanese audio.
The launch window to get your console war on is set for this summer.
North American and European launch dates have been set for Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart. Idea Factory International announced that retail and digital copies will be available in North America on February 24; the title hits European PS Vitas on February 27 at retail, with the digital release following on March 4.
In a recent press release and site update, Idea Factory International announced plans to bring several Compile Heart titles to the PC via Steam. Specifically, Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1, Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2: Sisters Generation, and Fairy Fencer F have been confirmed for a digital release on the platform. Release periods and specifications have not been given at this time.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2: Sisters Generation has been delayed from its January 28 release in Europe. Idea Factory International announced that the title will now launch physically in Europe on February 6, with the digital release to follow in February 11.
The North American release (January 27) has not been stated to be affected by the delay.
As you might guess from the title, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II has been confirmed for a Spring 2015 launch in Japan on the PS4.
Idea Factory International announced they will be bringing Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart to North America and Europe, both digitally and at retail. A spinoff of sorts from the Hyperdimension Neptunia games, Hyperdevotion takes place in a separate world known as Gamarket, where the CPUs of four rival nations fight each other for dominance. This all gets sidelined when an outside force seizes power from the CPUs, forcing them to work together to fight back.
Check out the official website here. Hyperdevotion Noire is planned for a 2015 western launch.
Compile Heart has let loose a few more details about the upcoming Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II. Plotwise, the game covers three stories set in separate dimensions, which were originally planned as separate titles. Neptune and her sister Nepgear initially find themselves stuck in one of these dimensions, and their adventures cause them to cross paths with one Uzume Tennohboshi, known as the Abyss Goddess, along with an apparent adult version of Neptune. The battle system has also been redesigned, with mechanics closer to the traditional style along with certain changes, such as combo structure and positioning.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II will be exclusive to the PS4. A release period is not known at this time.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1, the Vita redux of Hyperdimension Neptunia, will be available in both retail and digital versions for North America when it launches this summer. The European release, also planned for this summer, will be digital only. Idea Factory also opened the game’s official site, which can be found over yonder.
Idea Factory has announced that Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 has been confirmed for North American and European releases. A PS Vita redux of the origional PS3 version, the title is loosely set for a summer release and will feature both English and Japanese audio.
Two new titles are being developed for the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, Compile Heart recently announced. The first, Chou Jigen Action Neptune U, will be more of an action game, while Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II appears to stick to the series formula. Platforms and release dates have not yet been announced.
In the spirit of updates about updates, Compile Heart has launched a teaser site for Hyperdimension Neptunia Re; Birth 1, a previously announced PS Vita entry/possible reboot for the Neptunia franchise. For now, the site merely says to keep an eye out for next week’s Dengeki PlayStation, specifically on June 27.
The console-tan moepocalpyse will continue, with Compile Heart announcing two new games in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, both for the PS Vita. Few details have been given beyond the titles: Chou Megami Shinkou Noire Gekishin Black Heart and Chou Ji Jigen Game Neptune Re; Birth 1 (semicolon intentional, apparently). That first mouthful will star the character Noire, while the second was announced with the cryptic message “Neptune, restart.”
Both are scheduled for a 2013 release in Japan.
I suppose “bonanza” is a bit strong for “these two games are coming out in Europe,” but what the heck. Persona 4: Golden, AKA probably the best reason to own a Vita right now, will hit European markets starting February 22. Completely unrelated game Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory will spread its console moepocalypse on March 15.
NIS America has revealed the release date for Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. The console-tan moepocalypse resumes in North America on March 12, 2013; Europe, March 15.
Title has it all. By way of Dengeki Playstation, Compile Heart has revealed the launch date for God Dimensional Game Neptune V: August 30.
And should you need more Japanese eccentricity in your life, NIS America has you covered with their own press release: Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 will be released on February 28 in North America, with a European release on the 24th.
And we’re back on task, no worse for wear. Well, I’m still fighting a cough, but at least we’re up and running again. As I said yesterday, sorry for the delay folks. Fortunately it wasn’t too busy a news week so I had time to chew on some rich, yummy financial analysis alongside the TGS leftovers. Let’s get down on it, shall we?
- Tokyo Game Show wrap-ups: 3DS releases are promising and its match-up with the Vita is the fight to watch; Square Enix needs something to reassure fans it knows what it’s doing, which probably isn’t FFXII-2; Konami lets Suikoden out of the cellar into yet another cellar; Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 confuses yet taps into the mysterious ‘buy me’ impulse; Namco-Bandai still hates money.
- Dualshockers.com provides some insights into the Japanese stock market and its reactions to TGS. Short version: Sony should be thankful Japan likes the Vita. The full article is definitely worth the read.
- Sony has a brief network outage that’s quickly corrected as authorities nab yet more LulzSec participants. The irony of this is not lost on me.
- A university study crowdsources viral protein modeling to a bunch of FoldIt players, with surprising results. Look to see someone try to weaponize this in the near future.
- Not exactly game-related, but the CERN researchers firing a particle that seemingly broke the speed of light is too fascinating not to discuss and/or fantasize about. Read up on it if you haven’t already, it could very well be science fiction in the making.
- And speaking of science gone mad, code-hunters find an apparent teaser for Half-Life 2: Episode 3 in Valve’s DotA 2. Don’t play games with my heart, Valve. Just… don’t.

Amidst the hubbub of the Tokyo Game Show, Nippon Ichi issued press releases announcing their upcoming titles.
