An action game and a Hyperdimenion Neptunia Victory sequel.

Compile Heart announced two new games in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series during its stage event at “Game no Dengeki Kanshasai 2014″ in Akihabara.

First is Chou Jigen Action Neptune U, an action game, as suggested by the title. Platform is to be announced.

Next is Hyperdimension Neptunia VII (Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II). This one is due out this year, and the platform is to be announced. Phrases such as, “The goddess that fell to the dark side,” “Transformation of the Gamindustry world,” and “The biggest threat to the approaching series” appeared in the teaser.

More information is expected in volume 564 of Dengeki PlayStation, due out on Japanese newsstands on April 10.

Thanks, Dengeki Online.

    They are getting goofy with the titles. Victory was weird enough, since they used ‘V’ (5) to represent it. Now it looks like there are 7 main games to the unaware. xP

    Wonder why they didn’t confirm platform.

    Neptune U… Wii U?

    • Landale

      It would be the 7th RPG though. First three, two remakes, Noire’s SRPG, and finally VII.

      • Elvick

        Noire isn’t a main game.

        • Landale

          I didn’t say it was. Just that there would be 7 RPGs.

          • Elvick

            But I said main game specifically. D;

            • Landale

              Hence my wording. I do agree that it would be a bit misleading in terms of main games, it’s just kind of worth noting that it would be the 7th RPG so it wouldn’t be entirely misleading.

      • xAtKx

        There is the Idol game as well, but I don’t think that counts.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Why would Dengeki PlayStation report on a Wii U game? Why would Compile Heart suddenly release a Wii U game in a super niche franchise that has been PlayStation exclusive?

      • Landale

        Can’t say why they would do a report on it. Maybe just mentioned it since it was part of the announcement relevant to what they cover? Blanc’s turn for a spinoff maybe?

      • Elvick

        Didn’t make that connection. :P

        And I don’t know, but “U” is just weird.

    • Budgiecat

      I think its just a joke

      Parodying Final Fantasy VII

  • Dokuro

    Omfg I didnt expect this at all but Im so happy now!

  • Wolf Star

    Oh god please don’t be on Wii U!! please don’t be.. (I would rather get it on Ps4 instead of Wii U. Still I’m happy new games are coming :)

    • EX+

      It isn’t. It’s being featured in a PS magazine.

      • Wolf Star

        Ok that’s good. When someone puts a “U” in the title. Everyone knows what console it is for, since Wii U is here. Unless they specify something else. Plus Wii U is region locked :/

  • Caribbean Brony

    I hope that U is for Wii U!

    • Budgiecat

      not for U

  • Somerandomperson

    probably exclusive deal with nintendo. Would love to see an action neptune game for playstation 4 or vita though.

    • EX+

      It’s not. It’s being featured in Dengeki PLAYSTATION.

  • MrKappa

    How hilarious will it be if the U game is not for the Wii U?

  • kirby755

    Hyperdimension Neptunia U, hmm…. Theres a possibility….. and just bear with it, that it could mean ‘Ultimate’, ‘Utopia’, or ‘Universe’.
    Hyperdimension Neptuna VII or Victory II….. *Reads it again* O_O Make this happen NOW!!!

  • DarthBrian

    Sure looks like the U is the same U as in Wii-U but for some reason I still don’t think it’s going to be for Wii-U. Cuz Compile Heart.

    • Somerandomperson

      Now that you think about it, compile heart and Idea factory are third party studios. There is a possibility for them to shift to Nintendo platforms.

      • DarthBrian

        There sure is, but I dunno…

        It’s supposed to be an action game.

        Think they want to go head-to-head with Bayonetta 2? >_>

    • EX+

      It’s being covered in A PlayStation magazine.

  • OverlordZetta

    U is being covered in a Playstation mag. No more Wii U comments after this line.

    I’m pretty sure the title isn’t Victory II, but in fact, just VII. It’s the seventh game in the series if it comes out before U, among other things.

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

      yes let’s stop jumping to ludicrous conclusions. It was a dengeki PS event, every freakin’ game announced was for Playstation platform, so zero chance it comes too WiiU.

      • Somerandomperson

        “Game no Dengeki Kanshasai 2014″ does not say “PS”

        • Pyrofrost

          Last sentence.

          >>More information is expected in volume 564 of Dengeki PlayStation, due out on Japanese newsstands on April 10.

      • 9li8

        Dengeki Game Festival is not a PlayStation event.

        But yes, the game is going to be covered on Dengeki PlayStation magazine.

  • 9li8

    Kabushikigaisha Compile Heart.

    Saving JRPG and video game industry, one masterpiece at a time.

  • tubers

    Hmm maybe Hunting-Action Neptunia for VITA? xD

    • 9li8

      You should be hired by Compile Heart.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      we have enough of those no thanks

      • tubers

        Well if that one pic in the article is legit for the action game then it might be some hack and slash or musou style.

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

      please be right!

  • 9li8

    “The biggest threat to the approaching series”

    So, a moe version of smartphone/tablet as the main villain?

    I’m down.

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

      on the contrary, that’s a very good idea

  • PrinceHeir

    I’m surprised the Idol PP PS Vita game didn’t get a sequel!?!

    Did the game do good on sales?

    Btw I freaking love this song!!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXgRw3xnDWo

    Probably the reason i’ll be buying the game XD

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

      I sold 50K I think which is pretty high but when I was in Tokyo I saw CE in the bomba bin for half price, so I don’t know what to think

      • PrinceHeir

        Such a shame :O

        Do they still have the CE??? Might need to grab it :D

    • Anime10121

      From what I’ve heard, it only has 5 songs, I hope it DIDNT do well with that :/

      • DyLaN

        But you get to date (IIRC, correct me if wrong) the goddess in it so…… :V

  • Learii

    I guess Chou Jigen Action Neptune U is for Wii U

  • https://twitter.com/Stealth___ Stealth

    Sounds like Wii U to me

  • Duc PC-QB

    WiiU is saved !!
    Rejoy people

  • Anime10121

    Yes YES! MOAR NEP NEP (breathes heavily)!

    On the real though, I’m always up for more console Neptune, as it seems we’re far more likely to get those at a much faster pace!

    If more info about both is coming in Dengeki and Action Neptunia U aint coming this year, we may very well have our first announced niche PS4 game :D

    (I think they’re trolling everybody adding that U to the end :P
    Edit: Not that I’d be ADVERSE to it actually releasing on Wii U, as it would actually give me a reason to turn mine on)

  • SuperLuigi

    If it’s not for the wii u these guys just became the biggest trolls ever lol.

    • http://otakugamersuk.blogspot.co.uk/ Sanquine

      Denki PlayStation event… And you think a Wii U annoumcements will come. With the next Nintendo direct i expect some Playstation vita games being announced xD

      • SuperLuigi

        It was a joke…

    • EX+

      It’s not for Wii U. It’s being covered by Dengeki PlayStation.

  • ragingmerifes

    VII will probably PS3. U will be Vita or mobile-only, I presume.
    If it’s for Vita, three game announcements for it in just one day. Wow

    • Manny Being Manny

      U Graphics look like Vita to me.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    Hyperdimension Neptunia Warriors please

    • Pyrofrost

      This would be the one Neptunia game I would be willing to buy!
      Only if its made by Omega Force.

  • ivanchu77

    “an action game”

    hum? something like dinasty warriors or something?

    Personally i would love if ASW mde a fighting game based on this franchise :3

  • TwinBuns

    They are really pumping out these games now, not that I’m complaining. Can’t wait to see more details and one day get the chance to play them.

  • Pyrofrost

    Edit: I did not realize this Sal, thank you.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      It is possible, though.

      During last year’s mega Persona reveal, DPS had coverage of Persona Q in it, even though it’s a 3DS game.

      • Pyrofrost

        I understand the “event” isn’t a Playstation event, but the last sentence in the article says the games will be covered in Dengeki Playstation in April.

        Edit: Wait, so you’re saying Dengeki “Playstation” is a multiplat mag, with the word “Playstation” in the title?!

        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          Nah, I’m not saying that.

          What I’m saying is, they’ll cover other platforms under certain circumstances. Like the Persona event, a bunch of Persona games were revealed, and they didn’t neglect covering the 3DS game because it was a 3DS game. They had a preview for that in the magazine, too. They didn’t cover it regularly after that, but the initial reveal, given the event, was covered.

          So all I’m saying is it’s possible.

          • Pyrofrost

            Oh ok, I see what you mean, under the circumstances then.

          • 9li8

            Well, you learn something new every day. Might be a Wii U title indeed, then.

  • http://twitter.com/M_Demolish Demolish

    U for Wii U? no of course not.

    • An Tran

      Judging by the screenshot, it looks like a Vita game. The blue coloring of the U makes me sad though.

  • DesmaX

    Well, guess I’ll be waiting for “Hyperdimension Neptunia 64″, or even “HN Wiin”

  • Eclipse

    I seriously wasn’t expecting an action game, but this could definitely turn out to be something really awesome.

    Also, Noire had better be playable~!

  • Saphiren

    Hoping for a PS3 release.

    • https://twitter.com/HansKaosu HansKaosu

      it will be. If they just released this niche game on PS4 it would be suicide. The fanbase all have Ps3.

  • Nerroth

    I’m somewhat surprised they didn’t also announce “Re; Birth 3“. It would have seemed logical for a Vita port of Victory to have been worked up, once Re; Birth 2 was close to release.

    Unless they are saving that kind of announcement for another time?

    On a semi-related note, this is a sample of Asami Imai’s new song for Geki Noire‘s OP:

    It’ll be interesting to see what the actual game’s opening will look like.

  • Guest

    I highly doubt it’ll be on Wii U, the U probably stands for “Universe” or something, similar to the V for Victory. Admittedly, the coloration of the logo is worrysome, but I don’t see how the only action game in the series would suddenly hop on the commercial failure system without also being on PS3 or Vita.
    Also, from the synopsis of Neptune V2, it’s amusing if you consider the events at the end of V. I can already tell where this is going, and yeah; she’ll be a pretty tough enemy to deal with.

    Hope to see a new protagonist or two, getting burned out by the current selection
