News: Dengeki Hyperdimension Neptunia blowout

As teased a couple of weeks ago, the next issue of Dengeki PlayStation would feature news on the latest batch of Hyperdimension Neptunia. Here it is :-

  • Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II is a direct sequel to the the original Victory that saw a release on Ps3 last year. A teaser said "the biggest threat of the series will arrive" and a "goddess who fell to the  dark side." and one twist to come from that seems to be that VII feature an adult Neptune (first screenshot below) that cannot transform into a goddess! It does leave one wondering whether she'll still be her quirky self, but dayum, she still looks as cute as ever. Neptune wont be alone as she will be joined by a new character named Uranus Uzume (second screenshot below), but there's still no mention of the other CPU's from previous entries as of yet. The story of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II will span three dimensions – Zero Dimension Netpunia Z: Ragnarok’s Goddess at the Edge of the Cliff, Hyperdimension Neptunia G: Gold Bellwether – Gamindustri’s Existence Transformation, and Heart Dimension Neptunia H: Trilogy Final and Thus into the Legend. There's still a lot more information to come of course. Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II is due for release in 2014, but there has still to be an announcement on the platform the game is to be released on.
  • Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U is in fact a PSVita title, not a WiiU release as was originally thought due to the big blue styleised U at the end of the games tag. The console goddesses Noire, Blanc, and Vert will be playable as well as Neptune and All four will be able to do goddess transformations as per the rest of the series. A new character named Dengekiko, a mascot for the Dengeki brand, will be introduced in the game too. Tamsoft, makers of Senran Kagura: Burst and the Onechanbara series amongst others, are developing the game. It seems that the title may end up being similar to Onechanbara, which is no bad thing. The title is pencilled in for release in Japan on August 28th

There's still more information to come regarding both titles, but its sure to get fans of the series a little hyped for later in the year. Till then, here's a few scans of the issue
