2 new Hyperdimension Neptunia titles announced

Turns out the latest Atelier game in the series wasn't the only big announcment at Dengeki Game Festival, as 2 new entries in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series was also announced.
One of the titles shown was Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II. The video shown at the event had snippets & tags “a goddess who fell into the dark side”/“the modification of Gamindustri”/“the biggest threat of the series will arrive”. Nothing else was really shown but it does get the mind pondering on what all this could mean for the lore of the series as this will no doubt be a direct sequel to the original Victory. Interestingly, the biggest question from most fans at the moment seems to be whether this means a return will be in store for Plutia....
 Another title announced at the event was Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U. As you can guess from the 'Action' in the tag, the genre is more than likely action. A slogan of “slash-and-boing” attached to the announcment pretty much confirms its not going to be an ARPG, more hack & slash. Whether that means along  the lines of say Dynasty Warriors or DmC, noone really knows as of yet.
Heres a solitary screenshot captured for Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U -
A platform for the two games was not announced though & a release is set for later in the year (2014). With the series having strong ties to the Ps3 & VIta, they are more than likely - but the U at the end of Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia leads some to beleive it to be a possible WiiU release in the series. An interesting, and possible, assumption. Both games will be detailed more thoroughly in the Dengeki Playstation magazine #564 which is due to release on April 10th. Thats going to be an interesting day.
