Hyperdimension Idol Neptunia PP Video Highlights Vert
posted on by Egan Loo
Compile Heart began streaming an 91-second promotional movie to profile the character Vert/Green Heart (voiced by Rina Satou) in its upcoming PS Vita game Kami Jigen Idol Neptune PP (Hyperdimension Idol Neptunia PP) on Thursday.
As in the previous Neptunia games, the story is set in the video-game homage world of Gameindustri, where the goddesses have maintained the peace. However, in the 21st century, the world has been shaken to its core by the idol boom, and the goddesses like Vert lose their share of followers. Vert resigns herself to the changes but then happily looks forward to the new challenge.
The video shows Vert performing to the song "HP ∞ Love Power" (idol dance ver.), complete with her transformation as Green Heart. In the game itself, the player can produce Vert's career by training her, outlining her daily schedule, interacting with other characters in conversations, and arranging her live concerts (from set lists to dance moves and camera work). The more successful Vert gets, the more share she gain as Gameindustri's #1 idol. In the viewer mode, players can "touch" Vert and the other characters via the PS Vita screen to get them to perform different actions with voices.
The regular edition will retail for 6,279 yen (about US$63) on June 20, while the limited edition will go for 8,379 yen (US$84) and the download version for 5,300 yen (US$53). The limited edition comes with Hyperdimension Neptunia ~Goddess Communication~ Nep PP Edition, a situation drama CD, and an exclusive mobile phone stand. People who preorder the game will receive a Hyperdimension Idol Neptunia skin seal for the PS Vita and an accompanying animated wallpaper.
