Game publisher Compile Heart revealed the newest installment in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series on Sunday at the Game no Dengeki Kanshasai 2013 festival. The game, titled Chō Megami Shinkō Noir Geki Kami Black Heart (Hyper Goddess Faith Noir: Super God Black Heart), will focus around popular character Noir/Black Heart, and will be released on the PS Vita.
Gameplay videos for the upcoming Chō Jigen Idol Neptune PP (Hyperdimension Idol Neptunia PP) game for the PS Vita were also previewed. The idol-raising game will ship on June 20, with a normal copy of the game costing 6,279 yen (about US$66). A limited edition will come with a short manga by Saimaru Pamyūda (Chō Jigen Game Neptune manga), a "Situation CD", a cellphone stand with a cleaner, and a Chō Jigen Game Neptune PS Vita skin costing 8,379 yen (about US$88).
Staff at the panel also revealed more details about the upcoming Chō Jigen Game Neptune The Animation anime. First, they announced that singer nao (former vocalist of fripside) will perform the anime's opening, while idol group Afilia Saga will perform the ending theme. In addition, a manga adaptation of the anime titled Chō Jigen Game Neptune: Hello New World will begin serializing in Ascii Media Works' Dengeki Maoh magazine. The first key visual for the anime was also revealed (seen right).
At the very end of the event, a screen that read “2013 Neptune Reboot” appeared, as well as a new logo reading, “Chō Jigen Game Neptune: Re;Birth1” with the PS Vita logo at the corner.
NIS America released the Hyperdimension Neptunia and Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 games in North America, and released Kami Jigen Game Neptune V as Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory earlier this month. The franchise is known for anthropomorphizing the game console wars as female role-playing game characters.
