Make console love, not console wars

Neptune’s pre-order items have been revealed and they are full of love. Some of the ‘telephone cards’ that you will get free with a pre-order show console goddesses getting sexy with each other.

There are a couple of other ones in the source link, but they where not sexy enough to make the cut. Sorry. The game is coming out August 19 in Japan. No word on a Western release date.

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.

Neptune first gameplay trailer

A new trailer for ‘Neptune’. Sega and Compile Heart’s PS3 exclusive RPG. This trailer shows off game play for the first time and some of the ‘summons’ you can do which happen to be based on Master System era Sega IPs. This trailer shows Alex Kidd, Shinobi and Space Harrier.

If you are interested in this game I have a funny feeling it may never release outside of Japan. So you’ll probably have to import.

As for me, I’m not sure what to think of this game yet. But it is a pretty funky concept!

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.

Neptune screenshots are released

Neptune, a game being developed by Compile Hearts and being published by SEGA, is going to take ‘console wars’ to another level. The game will be an RPG, to read more information click here.

As for the screens, the graphics are very PS2 like, not that it is a bad thing. Just expected better. I hope the game is fun and there is a English release. I can dream, right?

New Neptune trailer has SEGA logo

There it is, the new “trailer” for Compile Hearts upcoming console war RPG. SEGA is acting as publisher in Japan, chances of it coming out here? Slim. Especially seeing as the graphics will be 2-D and on PS3? Forget it.

Oh well, maybe they will put some English subtitles and most of us can import it? Hey, it could happen!

Retro SEGA characters to be in Neptune

Do you guys remember Neptune? The console war RPG game being published by SEGA in Japan? Well it has been confirmed that retro SEGA characters will make cameo appearance. What characters? No idea, yet.

The ‘listing’ in Game Star website says resurrect retro SEGA characters; so I would not be counting Sonic and the gang to return. Someone that has not been back in awhile… humm…

If that was not enough, it also talks about a new photo feature. You can take pictures from your Playstation 3 photo album and use them during battles and to customize your clothing. Interesting indeed.
