Neptunia and SEGA Hard Girls crossover coming to the West this Fall to PS Vita


Today, it’s been announced that the Seha Hard Girls and Hyperdimension Neptunia crossover game is coming to the West, both USA and Europe, as Superdimension Neptune vs SEGA Hard Girls, exclusively for the PS Vita. According to the game’s US website, it will feature an English dub and have the option to keep the original dub with subtitles. Oddly enough, SEGA is not publishing the game in the West, rather it’s being done by Idea Factory International, the regular publishers of Hyperdimension Neptunia games in the West.

The game seems to follow in the footsteps of other Neptunia games, being a 3D RPG with a cross between active and turn-based combat, with platforming on the overworld. Fans of the main series will probably find a good enjoyment out of it, and SEGA fans will probably want to tune in for the likely hefty amount of cameos that will doubtlessly be in the game.

Superdimension Neptune vs SEGA Hard Girls comes to the west in Fall 2016.

Hyperdimension Neptunia VS Sega Hard Girls gets a debut trailer

Fans of both Sega Hard Girls TV Show and Compile Heart’s JRPG Hyperdimension Neptunia are in for a real treat with the upcoming crossover video game. The game has you playing as IF-chan along with a new character named Sega Hatsumi as you travel back in time to Sega-based eras to recover long lost history. Above is the debut trailer for the game, if you missed the opening movie you can find that here.

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.

Hyperdimension Neptunia to have SEGA tie-ins intact

As you know, NIS America is bringing over Hyperdimension Neptunia to the States. When it was announced, I assume that all copyrighted SEGA power-ups that where announced for the Japanese release would be taken out. Seems not so.

“Upon acquisition, they will allow you to customize your battle combinations to add, for example, an Alex Kidd or Space Harrier special summon attack where you can deal some serious late 80’s/Early 90’s damage to your foe.”Ryan Phillips, Marketing Coordinator, NIS America

Not only was this info released, we also got a new trailer. Which you are able to view above.

First English screenshots for Neptune RPG

We have done our fair share of Neptune RPG related articles, but the last one we announced that NIS America will be releasing the title in America. Well, they changed the name of the game to Hyperdimension Neptunia. Logo above.

NIS America also gives us some chit chat regarding the battle system.

“The battle system itself does share a few similarities with Xenosaga with the combos. Overall the game itself is like a hybrid between Xenosaga and Mana Khemia battle wise.”

What about demo? According to Ryan Phillips, who works for NIS America, they don’t have on planned. Check out the source for more info regarding the battle system.

NIS America bringing Neptune RPG West

The Compile Hearts developed and SEGA published (in Japan) Neptune RPG (full name “Super Dimensional Game Neptune”) will be brought to North America and Europe by NIS America. They will be changing the name of the game, for copyright reasons. The Western release will be known as “Hyperdimension Neptunia”.

If you didn’t already know, SEGA will have some retro IPs guest star in this RPG. If you didn’t see the list, we did an old post about here. The game will be hitting exclusively to Playstation 3 in Spring of 2011.
