Compile Heart: Brand-New Neptunia Work in Production

posted on 2013-09-25 04:00 EDT
Separate work from Re;Birth 2 & Noire/Black Heart-centered PS Vita title

Compile Heart producer Naoko Mizuno, director Ken Itō, director Shingo Onodera, marketing staff member Kazuki Maruyama, voice actress Kanako Sakai, and Dengeki PlayStation's Yutaka Tanaka hosted the "Neptune Re;Birth 1 x Fairy Fencer F Pre-Release! Compile Heart's Autumn Next Hyperdimension Galapagos Stage!!" event at the Game no Dengeki booth at the Tokyo Game Show last weekend. After the event supposedly ended, Onodera suddenly returned to the stage for one last surprise, and Maruyama handed him an envelope. From the envelope, Onodera pulled a sign that announced that "the long-deferred new Neptunia work is in production!"

The completely brand-new Neptunia work is separate from Re;Birth 2, the tentatively titled PS Vita remake of Chōjigen Game Neptune mk2 (Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2). It is also separate from the previously revealed Chō Megami Shinkō Noire: Gekishin Black Heart PS Vita software starring the character Noire/Black Heart.

NIS America released the Hyperdimension Neptunia and Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 games in North America, and it released Kami Jigen Game Neptune V as Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory in March. The first game anthropomorphizes the game console wars as female role-playing game characters.

The Hyperdimension Neptunia television anime premiered in Japan on July 12 as an adaptation of the Hyperdimension Neptunia game series. Funimation is streaming the series as it airs.
