    Damn, it really sounds like this game should be something special. CH is really putting their best foot forward for this game and I’m very much looking forward to the result. I hope this does amazingly for them so we see more games like this.

    I also hope we see more Vita games, CH!

      Until you zoom out, at least

      • fireemblembeast

        …? Do you mean that as a joke referring to how the girl is no longer in the close-up when you zoom out, or is it literally not good anymore when you zoom out? >.>

        • DesmaX

          Nah, I’m talking about the graphics themselves

          Neptunia Victory looks “just as good” when you close up like that, but zoom out the camera a little bit, and the graphics starts to get ugly

          I mean, it’s not horrible, but It’s bad for today standards

            I think it would look better using cel-shade.

            • Elvick

              I think cell shaded would always be better for more ‘low-budget’ JRPGs like this.

              It’s just so much easier to pull off something sexy in cell shading.

            I’ve accustomed myself to Tales graphics, I can handle anything.

            • bloodiOS

              I actually think Tales graphics looks better than this.

          • fireemblembeast

            Ah, I see.

  • DesmaX

    Oh, they changed the writer? Great, I didn’t like their previous one

    • Himiko

      Writer for Neptunia was great.

        Also, that guy F***** entire Kamen Rider series; Kabuto and 2nd half of Hibiki was uber crap. I give up the game right now…

        • Mad_Dog_Yayan

          Kabuto was mostly written by Shoji Yonemura not Toshiki Inoue. Inoue it pretty much hit and miss now compare to his pre-Faiz days. His writing in Garo Makai Senki episode 4 and Gokaiger 28 is good. His new manga that he collaborated with Keita Amemiya and Wosamu Kine to make is really good and very dark. Hopefully, he will be bringing his A game here.

      You’re going to like the new one a lot less.

  • DichaTesoro

    I really don’t know anything about this game, but Amano and Uematsu…I want.

    The new heroine character also announced to be voiced by Nao Touyama.

    Lots and lots of rivers.

        Dammit September….

    Toshiki inoue!!! AH this is pure bliss!
    Hopefully it’ll turn out awesome… this is really nice! Thank you very much for those news, I’m a huge Kamen Rider fan, so this is definitely a reason to be happy about this!

    Okay, trying not to get hyped but now that Amano-sama, Uematsu-sama and Inoue-sama work together with the Kamijingen Neptune team on this… it’s very difficult not to be.

    Seriously there were only improvements in the past years. Victory was a huge improvement (especially sound-wise) Mk2 had the better story and turned out to be a completely different dimension from Neptune 1.
    And now this! ^//////^


    Might get the game digital from JP psn now since it releases too close to sen no kiseki >.>

  • Eclipse

    Nice, September really is shaping up to be an excellent month.

    I’ll be greatly looking forward to this and DS2: Break Record in Fall.
