Manage Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert in PS Vita idol game.

NIS America is bringing Hyperdimension Neptunia PP (working title), or what we’ve been referring to as God Dimension Idol Neptune PP, to North America and Europe via retail and digital in 2014, the company announced.

The Compile Heart-developed PS Vita simulation game puts players in the role of a producer who falls into the world of Gamindustri and is immediately hired by one of the four CPUs—Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert. As their producer, players are tasked with managing their idol careers.

“Will you be able to properly raise these CPUs into idols, or will their citizens be stolen away from them by the popular idol group MOB-48!?” reads the localization press release. “Teach these girls to sing, dance, and properly promote themselves to the general populace thanks in part to your expertise in training video game idols back on Earth. As the girls’ popularity rises, they will be able to join one another in singing duets, or maybe even come together for a full ensemble!”

    game with only 5 songs lol.

    • KIngpigeon96

      Really? That’s pretty disappointing.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        yes 5 songs and the animation…well lets just say as a friend of mine would say claymation

        • fyi1191

          Oh well, I hope no one is getting this just for the musics / songs. It’s not worth it as one can just youtube them.

  • Duc PC-QB

    Hahaha seriously ???

  • Takane Shijou

    Well, I’m a bit shocked this is getting localized.

    But, I always enjoy more Neptunia.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      its going to be ok dear

  • Luna Kazemaru

    I honestly wanna do this to NISA.


  • NeoTechni

    And here i thought it was unlocalizable and imported it

  • Elvick

    Yus. Hope it’s retail though. Be cool like Aksys, NISA.

  • kirby755

    I’m surprised and yet again pissed about not having a good budget. Even though I honestly not in a rush for this one. I’m not much of a song and dance game person(Except for one my great loves Hatsune Miku Project Diva F)

    • Josephl64

      it’s hard to call it a rhythm game…all you do is control stage effects to make them cheer and applaud

      • kirby755

        Ouch that sounds not too good at all. I’ll leave it as a game that I would buy when the it price drops and I have spare money around. But that won’t be for a long time with all the great games coming.

        • Kobracon

          Yeah its more a manager sim. Not a rhythm game at all actually. So it should play like a Visual Novel.

          • kirby755

            Then it makes me alittle disappoint, but the world goes on right!!! I just not that much into sims , even though Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Boobie Lady(Sorry wrong game) Vert had always dragged me into their conversations.

            • Kobracon

              Yeah. Its not for everyone, but there are other games in the sea ^_^

            • Tyler Beale

              Calm down, Taokaka….Vertypoo isn’t Litchi!!

              Although, that does give me an idea for my BlazBlue/Hyperdimension Neptunia crossover fanfic…

  • Grunwald

    Hahahahaha really now? Pff.

    (I’m buying this)

  • Kami nii

    Thank you Nis America! :)

    • jujubee88

      For making the US/EU VITA library a little bit Moe interesting. ;)

  • divinelite

    thannk yyooouuuuuuu

  • tubers

    If only it actually had a rhythm game mechanic.

  • Kobracon

    Oh dear….I have a strange compulsion to buy this despite everything…

    P.S. MOB-48? I c wut u did thar

  • Eclipse

    Wow, I seriously wasn’t expecting this to get localized.

    Well done, NISA~!

  • DarthBrian

    Man, so happy we’re getting this. ^_^

    • jujubee88

      Me too. I’m not even sure I’ve ever like/played these types of games. Buut VITA hasn’t had these strange Japanese games so I’ll buy a copy. Physical, of course.

      I’ll play it on my VITA immediately with the speakers turned up max volume. In public. LML!!! ^_^

  • Kyosuke Yoshino

    Excellent, I hope we can get Re;Birth 1 also in 2014 :)

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Would actually be a good game even if it is a remake unlike this.

  • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

    NOW i have to get a Vita.

    Thanks NISA :)

  • Kefkiroth

    Would this be the first localized idol game ever?

    • http://ryuz4ki57inenglish.wordpress.com/ Thomas FROEHLICHER

      I think so

      • jujubee88

        On a handheld. This will spread like a plague if played in public.

        • Thad McMichael

          No, it’s the first one ever.
          Yeah, there’s the im@s game for iOS, but it’s more of a rythm game than an idol game.

  • http://ryuz4ki57inenglish.wordpress.com/ Thomas FROEHLICHER

    Oh, this is gonna be epic… Good thing is that we’re pretty sure to get Rebirth afterwards. If this is localised, everything will be.

  • Chestnut Bowl

    Oh, nice. I hope there’s a good LE with it.

  • JiveAfroZombie

    This is super cool! Please have them give us Rebirth also!

    • Alex Poirier

      Rebirth isn’t out in Japan yet. (releasing this week) so it can’t be confirmed now if it’s gonna be zoned to the west. BUT I HOPE THEY DO I MISSED THE FIRST GAME!!!

    Coming out to support this, ugh 2013 was bad with the game announcements. 2014 feels like my wallet won’t exist n.n

  • kurosan9712

    Too bad that the game is too bad. Unlike Idolmaster series, this game is A LOT stranger, and a lot less fun.

    It’d take a lot of time to explain, but if you want to check if you will like it – spend time to create a japanese PSN account and try it, the demo is still available, I believe.
