NIS might bring Neptune to America & Europe

You might have seen posts around here about Neptune RPG for the Playtation 3, which is set to be publish by SEGA in Japan. It is even going to feature classic SEGA cameos. What about us in America and Europe? No fear, NIS America is here.

“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. The deal is almost done. ” – Haru Akenaga, President of NIS America

Glad that are looking into the licensing issues and I hope they do not have to change too much stuff.

So what SEGA IPs will guest star in Neptune RPG?

We have told you guys before that SEGA will ‘ressurct’ some IPs to appear in “Super Dimensional Game Neptune” (full title). Well we got a list, thanks to Famitsu.

  • Alex Kidd
  • Altered Beast
  • Ashura
  • Fantasy Zone
  • Golden Axe
  • Penguin Land
  • Space Harrier

I don’t quite recall Ashura, but Penguin Land? Really? I like some of the list, obviously Fantasy Zone, but most could have been bigger stuff that fans wanted. Either way, the game is Japan only so far and I doubt SEGA themselves will bring it over. As for importers, the game hits July 29th only on Playstation 3.

Teaser trailer for Neptune is now up

We reported the other day about how SEGA is teaming up with Compile Hearts to bring forth a new RPG that sounded a lot like Segagaga. Well, their teaser countdown is over and as promised, they have posted a teaser video.

Nothing really big, but it does show you some of the character designs and as expected its your typical characters you see from most JRPGs.

Project Neptune = Segagaga spiritual successor?

[More of this please!]

Compile Heart’s new project is codenamed “Neptune”, which has a teaser on their site and one of those fancy countdown clocks we all learn to loath. Famitsu though, has revealed the full title of the game to be “Choujigen Game Neptune.”

Nothing out of the ordinary or to resemble Segagaga, but the game is an RPG, set in the virtual world of “Game Gyoukai”, which is Japanese for “Game Industry.” The main characters name is Neptune who must stop the evil plot of Goddess Magicon.

Yes, Neptune is based on the name for the SEGA console and SEGA is publishing the game (or handling the sales side of it, according to AndriaSang). Double whammy! It is also confirmed that the game will have cameos by SEGA characters, just like Segagaga. The game will also have mock characters for well known publishers like Capcom and Nippon Ichi.

Oddest part of the whole thing? It is a PS3 exclusive, seems like we have been corrupted by DOGMA! (Segagaga reference)
