Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls English Trailer Released

Did you know that Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls is a thing? I know, weird right? If you didn’t know Sega Hard Girls is a anime TV show that references lots of SEGA history including games and consoles (the characters are named after SEGA consoles). Which is sorta the same conscept behind Superdimension Neptune games thus we have Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls!

 Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls is set to hit the PlayStation Vita this fall and being published by Idea Factory International and being developed by Compile Heart.

Developer Retrospective: The winning combination of SEGA and Compile


As summer winds down, we thought it would be the ideal time to shift the focus of our Year of the Developers feature to third party Japanese developers who have worked with SEGA in the past to bring us countless classics. We are, of course, referring to the legendary developers Compile, Treasure and Westone. While these three developers existed on their own outside of SEGA, their collaborations with our favorite company utilizing beloved SEGA home console and arcade hardware went a long way in cementing their statuses as some of the best third party developers of the 80s and 90s.

Compile Heart announces Hyperdimension Neptunia VS Sega Hard Girls for Playstation Vita


Earlier today at Dengeki Bunko Spring Festival 2015, Compile Heart announced a cross-over game called Hyperdimension Neptunia VS Sega Hard Girls for the Playstation Vita. If you don’t know what either of those series are: Neptunia is about girls who are supposed to be like consoles (including Sega consoles), and Sega Hard Girls is about girls who actually are Sega consoles. That’s about the gist of it.

No details were announced aside from that the game’s name and the platform. Hyperdimension Neptunia games do usually get localized, so a western release can be expected.

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)
