A Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 remake.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re; Birth 1 is a remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia for PS Vita. At the Tokyo Game Show, Compile Heart announced Hyperdimension Neptunia Re; Birth 2, a remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 for PS Vita.

Additionally, the company revealed the March-announced Chou Megami Shinkou Noire Gekishin Black Heart has finally begun development. New information is expected in the November issue of Dengeki PlayStation magazine.

Thanks, Dengeki.

    I wanted to get MK2 while I wait for Rebirth 1…. oh well….

    And Chibi Noire? Will have to see how this plays out.

    • Anime10121

      Either way, whenever you get to try it, you’ll be playing the best game in the series to me! :D

  • Kobracon

    The Neptunia games actually seem perfect as a portable game

    • TheExile285

      Agreed. If we can get Victory after these two, that would be great!

      • Leon_Tekashi

        And now people can play them either through a console or a handheld. Everyone will be happy!

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Holy shieet

  • Hikaru Lighthalzen


  • uhawww

    Chibi Noire (゜∀゜) I wants it.

  • Xaltmas

    I have never played one of these games before, but since NISA has been gracious enough to localize DanganRonpa, maybe I should give these a shot if localized.

  • Jesse

    I can understand the first one getting a remake(really, it NEEDED one), but this is unexpected.

  • Leon_Tekashi

    I sorta saw this coming. Now they’re just doing what they can to connect the trilogy with no problems. I’ll be looking forward to this. =) More VIta love!

  • Eclipse

    Nice, it’d be great to have the trilogy available on the Vita.

    I especially can’t wait to hear more about that game starring Noire <3

  • Nerroth

    There are a few more details posted in Japanese at this link:


    In addition to the news posted above, Nepgear, Uni, Rom, and Ram will be in Re; Birth 1, as will the six Maker DLCs presented as a group in Victory (Broccoli, CyberConnect2, [young] Falcom, MAGES., MarvelousAQL, and Tekken).

    And there will be a Noire figurine offered as part of an LE. (One of the pics shows it alongside four other figurines, which had been offered in prior games’ Japanese limited editions.)

    Plus, there seems to be a brand new console-based Neptunia game in the works, but it hasn’t yet been stated what platform it will be for.

    (There is some Fairy Fencer F data in that article, too.)

    • TheExile285

      Wait so the game has DLC or those DLC characters from previous games are included?

      • Nerroth

        I’m not sure if it says either way just yet. (If there is someone in a better position to translate the longer article, I’d defer to their opinion on this one.)

    • Anime10121

      New console based Neptunia! All of my YES!!!

  • https://twitter.com/GaleGlory89 KiQun

    it seems to me RPG are gradually being shifted to handheld. Overall, as a Vita user, I welcome this move.

  • Elvick

    Neato! Despite buying all the Limited Editions, I’ve yet to play them on PS3. Will probably get around to it faster on PS Vita, since I play it more than my PS3.

    Assuming NISA bring them over, but the franchise seems to do well for them so I don’t see why they wouldn’t. Especially since the anime is going with FUNimation, so in theory more people will be interested.

      Really hoping the anime being localized helps. More rpgs on my vita makes for a happy Kurisu. I am a bit concerned that we’re getting so much ports and remakes, versus new entries and new IP.

  • jujubee88

    This is great for me. I got a VITA. Never had a PS3. Now I can play these games and see the hype first hand.

    Win win.


  • DesmaX

    … What the heck? Release the first one before announcing a sequel, geez

    • CirnoTheStrongest

      It was planned from the start obviously.

    • TheExile285

      Comes out October 31st

      I don;t see any issue with them announcing it. I’ll take the whole trilogy on Vita if possible :P

    • tubers

      While I think they should’ve been hum about until a few weeks after Re1 sales, it has been long announced that there’ll be these 3 games several months ago.

      • Josephl64

        no the 3 they were talking about was Idol PP, Noire’s game, and Rebirth…this is the first hint at Rebirth 2

    • NeoTechni

      Agreed. I still havent beaten any of them, and i have collectors editions for them all

  • DarthBrian

    yes! :D

  • DarthBrian

    omg chibi Noire. <3 <3 <3

  • Guest

    I always wanted to play the Neptunia series

    • Willgaea


  • Zackasaur

    So… Is the second one better than the first? And what of the third? I kind of want to try one of these, but I’m not sure I’m up for all three. I might just wait, depending on what people have to say.

    • Leon_Tekashi

      Okay, let me give you a brief explanation about the three games. The first one, which is the original has bad gameplay, but the story is hilarious. The second one is more serious and the comedy was lacking, also the gameplay improved vastly. The third one is a mixture of both comedy and seriousness and the gameplay got a slight upgrade. Take note that the 2nd and 3rd are connected to each other, but not the 1st.

      • Zackasaur

        Thanks! Well, I know that this PS Vita version of the first game has a big gameplay upgrade to bring it up to par with 2/3. Given that, which do you think is best?

        • refrain

          I don’t know. They changed the story in the remake too.

          • Zackasaur

            Hm, weird! This is hard. :x

  • Luna Kazemaru

    why remake mk2 it was already good o.O

    • DesmaX

      But it still has it’s flaws.

      Not saying V is frawless, but still, “less frawled”

  • Arcana Gear

    Chibi noire?….. i wanna it.
    And now dont know if i buy mk2 for ps3 or vita….. silly me, it’s the only answer …….. both!

  • DriftSlave

    NepGear and all Nep V DLC Maker characters confirmed for Re;birth 1 http://dengekionline.com/elem/000/000/719/719951/

  • Omega_Shiro

    I REALLY!!!! need to start playing Neptunia should I go for its remakes??

    • almostautumn

      Wait for the remake; to play the originals you literally need to not care about gameplay at all. While MK2 is *acceptable*, it’s really not anything that is nessecarilly fun; and the first one is strictly, and thoroughly, garbage.
      People like it for the story/art/concept— but as a videogame series, it’s awful.

      • Omega_Shiro

        Yea I will go for the remakes XD

  • refrain

    Btw, the name is wrong. Not hyperdimension but Nextdimension

  • artemisthemp

    Guess this means Re; Birth 3 will happen in the future.

    Personally I am more interested in the Noire game, than Re; Birth 2

  • http://twitter.com/M_Demolish Demolish

    make me happy when they or other make games RPG For Vita.

  • bloodiOS

    I guess that’s a good way to get me interested in the series again. I bought the limited edition of the first game and haven’t even unbox it yet…

    • GhostNomad

      I unboxed mine but then just kinda…. Never played it. And then I bought the second one. And then Victory. And then I ended up mailing them to my best friend back in the States to hold them for me til I got back. And I still haven’t played them, and my backlog is growing almost on a daily basis and I’m having a small mental breakdown every time I look at my pile of games I’ve yet to play :D
