    FYEAH! >:D

  • Bobby Jennings

    WHOA

  • Wolf Star

    Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  • Kevadu

    Seems like a strange move to me. PS4 adoption in Japan is still really slow and this certainly isn’t using the hardware to its fullest.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Well this’ll make em pick up some PS4s then.

      Japan’s just missing games thats why the haven’t picked up the PS4

      • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

        Japan won;t pick up PS4s just for Neptunia, I assure you.

        • Bobby Jennings

          And I’m sure they will. There’s a reason why the series is so successful.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            I think you and I have different definitions of the term ‘successful’, lol.

            • Bobby Jennings

              Yes I believe we do Tetsu.

          • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

            Successful? Selling 50k~ copies is hardly a “success”. At least, not as far as moving PS4s is considered.

            • Bobby Jennings

              It’s a success in their opinion and their fine with that.

              There’s a reason why the series has so many games.

              Plus they actually come to the US as well.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      I was thinking the same thing, lol. Why move to PS4 when you still look like a PS3 game?

      • AlphaSixNine

        Because who cares about graphics? Besides… announcement trailer didn’t even show the game itself just a little cutscene of Nep-nep transforming lol. But still… since this is Compile Heart, I doubt it’ll look grand. XD

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          You’re making it personal now. Despite your belief that Japan doesn’t care about graphics, there are actually people there that do care about graphics… Much like there are people that don’t care about graphics in North America.

          • AlphaSixNine

            Did I say everyone? Majority is what I’m implying but I guess that’s not obvious.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Majority on what basis exactly? Your statement? Where is your evidence?

              • Alexander the great

                on sales basis

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  Sales basis that shows us every anime weeaboo game they sell hardly ever breaks 100k in the first week unless it’s from a big IP like One Piece, right? Just because these games are being released doesn’t mean they don’t care about graphics. It’s funny when you have something like Grand Theft Auto V topping your charts in a country that’s apparently not obsessed with graphics.

                  • Alexander the great

                    GTA is better than any game japan has except tales and square enix stuff

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Except Tales, huh? Funny.

                      [PS3] Tales of Xillia 2 (Bandai Namco Games) {2012.11.01} (¥8.380) – 364.439 / NEW

                      [PS3] Grand Theft Auto V (Take-Two Interactive Japan) {2013.10.10} (¥7.770) – 360.115 / NEW

                      [360] Grand Theft Auto V (Take-Two Interactive Japan) {2013.10.10} (¥7.770) – 26.612 / NEW

                      Huh… What do ya know? Even as terrible as the 360 is, that’s impressive. Sure, you can go ahead and try to defend it by saying, “But if we don’t count 360, then they’re behind by 4k+”, but I’m just going to show you this:

                      [PS3] Tales of Xillia 2 (Namco Bandai, 11/01/12) – 12,337 (411,565)

                      [PS3] Grand Theft Auto V (Square Enix, 10/10/13) – 3,020 (778,762)

                      Yes, even a Tales game ran out of steam earlier than something like Grand Theft Auto V. What do ya know? I guess they do care more about graphics.

                    • AlphaSixNine

                      And how long did that last? That was rare and largely an exception. GTA is way too known of a title. lol Just look at Yokai Watch it’s still at the top of the charts after more than a year it was released and it certainly doesn’t have great graphics. Just like majority of titles that occupy the top charts every week. They may not stay long but the games that replace them still majorly don’t have great graphics like GTAV does lol.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Ummm… You do realize that 700,000+ units is still more than most of your anime games sell in the course of years and this game managed to do it in just a few months, right? You may think that GTAV was rare and an exception, but guess what. Yokai Watch was also an exception ;)

                      I love Japanese games as much as the next guy around these parts, but you should really turn the ‘BUT MUH GLORIOUS NIPPON’ attitude down a notch. Japan likes Western games and North America likes Japanese games.

                      Simple as that, really.

                    • AlphaSixNine

                      Not the point I am making really. Nobody said Japan doesn’t like western AAA titles or glorious AAA graphics. My only point is looking at what kind of games constantly appear on sales chart and what majority of games get released or hit best sellers. Japan doesn’t obsess too much about graphics like mainstream west that talks nothing but framerates and resolutions. Nobody would dislike an awesome graphics but Japan certainly doesn’t put it too high in the pedestal like mainstream western game industry does.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Right, because it’s not as if Japanese developers haven’t discussed about how great graphics are for Western games and how they wish the Japanese market would progress as the West has when they look at games like The Last of Us, which left plenty of Japanese developers in awe.

                      I think I’m going to stop here though since you seem to be letting your pride get in the way of seeing what’s actually going on here.

                    • AlphaSixNine

                      Like I said, I never said Japan didn’t care. I have no clue why you keep insisting I mean otherwise. All I’m saying Japan isn’t as obsessed as much as the west. Western gaming site always report about graphics comparison, resolutions and framerates so I see them as being too obsessed about it. Obviously Japan cares about graphics too and any developer would be impressed about what the west can do with graphics. I’m not saying Japan doesn’t care jeez…

    • AlphaSixNine

      This is the kind of game PS4 needs in Japan to sell. Maybe not that much but it will sell units. Japan is not like the west that cares too much about graphics, framerate or resolutions. Just look at how western AAA titles sell there and what kind of games mostly occupy top charts every week..

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        This is the game…? This is what you want to put your money on? Yeah, no. If Ryu ga Gotoku: Ishin! couldn’t help the PS4 sell, this game doesn’t stand a chance.

        • AlphaSixNine

          Haha like I said… probably not much but it will help sell units. Stop confusing western gaming culture with Japan.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Okay, I’ll stop doing that as soon as you stop thinking Compile Heart games actually sell well in Japan or not, lol. Sorry, man. Ryu ga Gotoku is way more popular and even it didn’t do much for the PS4.

            • Luna Kazemaru

              again it was crossgen so that is another reason lol

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                This is true. More people owned PS3s, so it’s only natural the PS3 version sold more. Still, I think he’s overestimating Compile Heart’s abilities.

                • Luna Kazemaru

                  I get your point i was just pointing that out.

                  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                    That’s a lot of pointing, Luna. Careful, you might poke someone’s eye out :p

                    • Luna Kazemaru

                      doing worry that’s tatsu’s job

            • AlphaSixNine

              It certain sells well enough to spawn various games and spin-off titles. ;p

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Lol no

                Just because there are plenty of games and spin-off titles doesn’t mean it’s doing well. There are plenty of games that don’t deserve sequels or spin-offs. Unless, of course, you’d like to stick with your defense and say that something like Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is justified despite XIII-2’s pitiful sales.

                Hmmm?

                • AlphaSixNine

                  lol that’s SE’s problem. CH isn’t exactly huge like SE that they can afford to waste resources. Neptunia continuously spawning various games and spin-offs is already proof that it sells well enough for CH. Otherwise they would have stopped already. Even if the sales look bleak to you, it was enough for CH that they profit from it and the PS4’s state in Japan is enough for them to make the jump to it. Not every game needs 100K+ sale to be “selling well” lol

                  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                    Whatever helps ya sleep at night, man. I love the dungeon RPGs that come from Japan these days, but I’d be a damn fool to think that these companies are actually making a profit off of them since they usually only sell a good 20k or less in the first week (spoiler: it takes more money than that to make the game). Just because they keep making games doesn’t mean they are doing well.

                    Think of Compile Heart as a Mom and Pop store. Sure, it won’t stand up to the likes of Wal-Mart (or in this case, Square-Enix), but they manage to stay in business anyway. Why? Because they still have customers, as few as those might be.

                    Nobody has bought them out yet (probably because they don’t see them as a good investment at the time), so until that happens, then they will keep making games on their own.

                    • AlphaSixNine

                      lol not every game cost the same to make. lower cost means lower sales target to make a profit. it’s just logic. FFXIII obviously looks like it cost much much more than any Neptunia game ever released. It doesn’t need millions of copies sold or even a 100K+ but it certainly would be great if it did.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      No, really? A game that looks bad takes less money to make?! No way!

                      Even so, the smaller budget titles aren’t getting more money than they are putting into it. Imagine going into a casino with $200, then walking out with $50. Just because you have less money than you had when you came inside doesn’t mean you can’t come back later.

                      There are plenty of people that never break even in those damn places, yet they still keep coming back.

                    • AlphaSixNine

                      You can only go back with a loss for so long. How many times have CH come back to Neptunia? lol

                      Hyperdimension Neptunia
                      Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2
                      Hyperdimension Neptunia V
                      Hyperdimension Neptunia PP
                      Hyperdimension Neptunia Re: Birth 1
                      Hyperdimension Neptunia Re: Birth 2
                      Hyperdimension Noire: Gekishin Black Heart
                      Hyperdimenison Action Neptunia U
                      Hyperdimension Neptunia V-II

                      You’d think they’ll be bankrupt already if those didn’t make them profit and they kept doing it. You can deny all you want that Neptunia is profitable for CH. But their actions say otherwise. Why would a small company keep coming back to a series that doesn’t make any money at all. With their small resources they should have died long ago. 2 or 3 times might work but not 9 times. lol

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Maybe because it’s the only thing people know them for these days and they’re trying to milk it? You’re really new to how the industry works, aren’t you? :|

                    • AlphaSixNine

                      Yeah right haha… That doesn’t even make any sense. Milk it even if it doesn’t produce milk(profit)? Please.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      I said they were trying to milk it. Imagine trying to squeeze out enough milk from a cow to fill a jug, but not being able to do so, always stopping short each time. Same thing here.

                      It’s too risky for them to release a new IP since Neptunia is pretty much a staple for CH at this point. That’s why they’re sticking with it.

                    • SatsukiYumizuka

                      uh CH werent making a profit(as little as it might be) they would be bankrupted by now

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Bankrupt by now? No. If things continue this way? Absolutely.

                    • Shippoyasha

                      Well, at this point, it’s not that small an audience. It’s a decently large enough of a fanbase to keep CH pretty profitable. It also helps that the western fanbase for CH games are definitely growing (not explosively so but still) and the PC-release of many of these games will open up a lot of avenue for more buyers.

                      Idea Factory is simply being very smart and built for survival. Many big game companies simply aren’t, which is why they sit on franchises or retreat to handheld or even browser/mobile.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          atleast someone is putting a JRPG on the system loland for the record Ishin was crossgen lol

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            I guess that’s something. It can’t be worse than Natural Doctrine anyway =3=

        • Thatguy

          I think, Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus helped Vita in Japan, no?

          • Renaldi Saputra

            only first week sales

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            It sold 90,000+ in the first week for two reasons.

            A. There was a price cut for Vitas during that week
            B. Fanservice always sells

      • DarthBrian

        Honestly it’s probably not going to sell well in Japan until Final Fantasy XV or Kingdom Hearts 3, whichever comes first, probably FFXV.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          That’s pretty much what I’m thinking right now. I really don’t see anything in the pipeline to push for sales until either of those games.

          • DarthBrian

            Maybe Bloodborne, but I think those games are more popular in the U.S. than Japan though apparently the reveal at E3 went over well with Japanese gamers.

            Plus there might be stuff announced at TGS that get the Japanese market going again. I think it’s a month before the Xbone release too. Sony better hurry before Microsoft steals all their sales away. /s

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Don’t get me wrong, I think Bloodborne will be well received because they enjoyed Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls, but it’s going to take more than that. We’ll see what TGS has to offer though.

        • Six

          I’m trying to imagine what the response would have been.

          • DarthBrian

            Hopefully the pig and monkey would’ve spoken English. If so, then I think it would’ve gone over better than Powers did. :p

          • Shippoyasha

            I wish they would just announce them and not worry about what the demagogues at major media outlets and the whine-o-sphere aka Twitter and social media would say.

            I am so sick of all this saving face marketing of games these days. Everything is just overly politically correct. I miss the days of brutally honest and over the top marketing of games in the 90s.

        Ultra-Megaton!

    • K1LL1NGZ0NE

      Cause sony would have gone to jail for the massive amount of cardial infarctions it would have produced.

    • Wolf Star

      Mercia – we want more FPS (military type) and Cod!!!
      That’s about it lol
      Me- don’t care, I just want a JRPG game that looks good that makes me want to buy it and also couple other games too.

      • Six

        I think it has less to do with the fact that westerners want FPS games and more because outside of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts most people don’t care about the JRPG genre.

        And they especially don’t want to see stuff like this.

        • Wolf Star

          I’m happy with my games.. ^_^ to be honest I’m not into military type games. It’s the same exact damn thing.

          • bloodiOS

            Implying that Neptune games aren’t just the same steaming pile of fan-service released over and over. Beside, there are more to FPS than just military type.

            • Wolf Star

              I just want something cool to play, any games recommend?? :) I have bioshock Infinate it’s awesome game :D

              • bloodiOS

                Have you played Dishonored yet?

                • Wolf Star

                  Sadly no, you?

                  • bloodiOS

                    It’s a good game, try it.

                    • Wolf Star

                      I’ll try to pick it up :3 maybe theif :)

                    • bloodiOS

                      The game is much better than the new Thief. Also, look into older stuffs like the Portal duology. There are also ome mindlessly fun stuffs like the Payday series. And of course, have a PS4 ready, be on the look out for the stuffs like Dying Light, the new Doom, and Far Cry 4.

                    • Wolf Star

                      I never played Doom before, I heard about it and I’m excited for the new Doom game to come out :D so it’s a reboot right?? Or is it Doom 4?? People are calling that I guess?

                    • bloodiOS

                      The publisher and devs aren’t calling it Doom 4. Even the title only has a big old Doom with nothing else. So, yeah, I’m leaning towards a reboot. Not that it matters.

                    • Wolf Star

                      That’s good reboot is good, I never played the seires before even back then when I was a kid. We will see at gamescom, everything is pointing towards that.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Well, it really doesn’t matter if we think back to how Doom 3 was comparing to its predecessors. Whether or not it’s a reboot doesn’t affect how creative the team can get with the game.

                    • Wolf Star

                      I saw doom 3 on ps3, something about amazing edition thing.. I never understood that part.

                    • bloodiOS

                      It’s just a fanciful way of saying Doom 3 HD Remaster! The original game was a Xbox 360 title.

                    • Wolf Star

                      Ooooh sweet :D I’ll get that then since they already did Doom 3 in HD :) I’m 50/50 chance sure the new doom game might be Doom 4.

                    • bloodiOS

                      There’s already a teaser for it:If they didn’t call it Doom 4 there then it’s pretty much certain that it isn’t Doom 4. Regardless, it’s going to be a new Doom.

            • Shippoyasha

              To be fair for Neptunia, it’s meant to be a serial game. Like some kind of a manga serialization with a continuous story. Stuff like Call of Duty (and now Battlefield) is more about the sports game style of new releases. Which isn’t a bad thing. I like them all to a point.

              I think what’s troubling with western development is that there are too many wannabe-Halos, wannabe-Uncharteds, wannabe-COD/Battlefield and the like.

              That being said, FarCry games, Fallout games (recent FPS style ones), Dishonored and Wolfenstein New Order were some of my favorite games the past 5 years.

        • DarthBrian

          I blame Microsoft for that.

          • Six

            Why? You do know that PC developers and publishers were coming to consoles to fuck up this glorious Nippon-ruled paradise either way, right?

            • DarthBrian

              Not in the wonderful magical dream land I live in.

      Judging by the trailer the game isn’t to the point of showing it, you’d at least need gameplay or screenshots which it doesn’t have

    • bloodiOS

      Because… meh.

    • TreizeX

      The west isn’t the appropriate audience to cater to with games like Neptunia

    • Mikail

      Because people like us are small in the community :)

      • DarthBrian

        Sony should be trying to make our community bigger. >_>

    Did anyone else notice they mentioned E3?

    • Mikail

      Tales series will do the Justice.

  • Yep this and omega quintet will make me buy a ps4 this september

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Ironic regardless of how they handle they games they are willing to hop over to the ps4

  • DesmaX

    They sure like mk2 soundtrack, huh?

  • Jin Kisaragi

    I still need to beat Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 and Victory. I think that it’s great that it’s coming to the PS4.

    • Wolf Star

      I still need to play Victory

  • K1LL1NGZ0NE

    hmm… It seems like being a late adopter isn’t going to do me any favors this time…

  • Alexander the great

    PS4 can only do so much, this game will look worse then any inndie game out

  • NeoTechni

    I see it still has PS2-era graphics…

    • DarthBrian

      I wish I had your PS2 that could do that.

      • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

        The wonder of hard mods.

  • Elle

    Compile Heart domination has begun. Yay. Hopefully they run MUCH better than their Ps3 games.

  • Ricardo Lopez

    Pre-ordening limited edition as soon as possible.

  • kirby755

    Well at least it gives me another reason to get PS4 i guess.-_-

  • uhawww

    At there there’s a dev in Japan looking at the PS4 and saying, “Screw it, let’s make some games.” Good on Compile Heat.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    they don’t know when to stop, do they?

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Why would they

    • Luna Kazemaru

      please don’t start with your needless salt pouring

    • Zackasaur

      The people demand it!

  • Takane Shijou

    I’m excited their moving the series forward with the PS4, but I’m really wondering if we’re going to experience some ‘growing pain’ issues with it. I imagine it won’t be nearly as bad with the transition from 3 -> 4, but still going to be a little cautiously optimistic with it and such.

    Still, I can’t help but be excited to see what they have in store for it.

  • PrinceHeir
  • Manny Being Manny

    Seems kinda pointless for Compile Heart to be jumping to PS4 this fast. They can’t take advantage of the graphics and their fanbase isn’t the type to jump to new consoles right away. But whatever, even more reason to get a PS4 for me now.

    • Anime10121

      Their fanbases are generally the first to jump to nextgen…

  • Wolf Star

    Damn it!! This makes me even more excited for Rebirth 1, now I need to go to GameStop once again and preorder it :/ also I need to start on victory since I’ve played little bit of it.

    • Zackasaur

      You can just pre-order online, even with your local GameStop. c:

      • Wolf Star

        X3 that can work :3 I love my physical copy’s ^_^

    • Elle

      I started a couple weeks ago (Victory)

      Hard as heck coming off of mkII the second game.

  • bloodiOS

    Focus on having this game running on the PS4 at native 1080p with good AA and makes sure the performance stays at a constant 30fps. Doesn’t matter if they reuse last-gen graphics. One step at a time.

    • PrinceHeir

      Why not 60FPS?

      I’m sure the games aren’t using any powehouse engine.

      • bloodiOS

        Because I’m not sure if the devs are that capable.

    • Anime10121

      Expecting too much unfortunately…
      Hell I think 720p and a stable 30fps is expecting too much from them :/

  • SatsukiYumizuka

    why Ps4 when that Purple Heart model seems exactly the same as the ps3 games…? Going all in on ps4 could mad backfire on CH since there arent as ps4’s as ps3’s(theres also no competition so they could end up doing amazing)

    • bloodiOS

      Gotta move on one way or another.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Its kinda amusing that this is suddenly a big deal

  • Akari Akaza

    CUTENESS AWAITS! ^_^

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Someone beat you :p

  • SatsukiYumizuka

    so いくぜ、4〜5万本 in english means “lets go 40k~50k units” which i guess is their expectations. by comparison the other neptunia games sell 30k the first week typically…so this means they’re expecting this game to be the highest selling title

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      It saddens me when a company is shooting for 40k-50k as their expectation, lol.

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        Nothing wrong with that. It is good to be realistic. If 40k-50k brings them in great profits then there is no shame. Would you rather them aim high and say 1mil? They’re not Capcom.

  • tmzwalker

    mmm.. I can already see the “plot” has been improved with complex physics!
    More reason to buy a PS4 soon.

    • gulabjamal

      That plot is all up in my face!

  • Learii

    so not ps3 huh?

    • Zackasaur

      Indeed! c:

      Tsunako=<3

  • An Tran

    Now to wait for the Vita version!
    Though I guess we should get a Vita version of Victory first huh?

    Also…why PS4? Wouldn’t it make much more sense to release on PS3? Especially since Nep’s model doesn’t look any different from the PS3 versions.

    • Zackasaur

      It’s good to get a franchise out on a new platform early, if possible. There might be less people, but those people buy more games and technically still have less choices.

      Savvy move.

      EDIT: Hell, I’m 10x more likely to buy it, now. I have to be really desperate to buy something for my PS3 at this point. Persona 5 has me under its whims, though. xD

  • BtShadowX

    I wonder if they are going to be targeting the Vita as the primary development platform behind the scenes, ultimately making the PS4 version appears lacklustre. That way, it will be easier for them to release an “enhanced” version for the Vita later on to further profit from it.

    • OverlordZetta

      Hasn’t happened yet. Out of their two remakes, one is a true remake and the other is inferior to the game it was remaking.

    • Budgiecat

      Wouldnt be surprised..

  • waku waku

    I called it on PS4. Everyone called me a liar but I believed it. Take that, you guys.

  • TreizeX

    Meh. Don’t really care much for it
    I would like to know the PS4 Falcom game soon

    • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

      TGS!!!
      YS 8!!!

      • Duc PC-QB

        Adol now rendering in 1080p 60 fps !

        • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

          Becasue you really need 60 FPS to bump enemies to death, right?

  • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

    Who would hav thought Compile Heart will lead the JRPG transition on PS4. I expect NIS, GUST, FALCOM to follow this TGS!

    • Zackasaur

      We’ve got niche studios like Compile Heart and giant studios like Square Enix all moving to PS4 early. It’s awesome!

      Here’s hoping that Atlus decide to have a PS4 version of Persona 5. ;~; But I’ll buy that no matter what.

      • Duo Maxwell

        Square Enix early? You mean the PSP game port or the game we won’t be seeing ’til 2016?

        • Zackasaur

          Er, no. That’s just part of it.

          1. They moved FFXV and KHIII to PS4, with the aim of pushing beyond what the PS3 could have done.
          2. They had FFXIV out on PS4 very quickly and are doing well with that.
          3. Hey, Type-0 HD! That is yet a fourth significant PS4 initiative.

          Square Enix have definitely come out for current gen early, even if their games have long dev cycles.

          • Budgiecat

            all ports lol

            FF XIII also came out 3 full years after PS3 launch remember…

      • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

        Not sure about that but I hope P5 to P6 takes 2 years just like P3 to P4. P6 can even have the same graphics as P5 on PS3 as far as I’m concerned :D

        • Shippoyasha

          I really hope it’s 2 years as well. I still remember the 2 years flying by after P3 and suddenly P4 is already there. Those were the days.

          I want to see P5 on Vita if it’s possible though. And maybe P6 can be on the PS4 and the next gen PSP once that bridge is to be crossed. Use the portable version as a killer ap.

      • Budgiecat

        S-E dont count lol

    • Pyrofrost

      It’s no real surprise, they were also leading the charge on PS3 as well with FromSoftware (Enchanted Arms).

  • Bobby Jennings

    This game better not have any FPS lag, or ima hurt someone.

    • Elle

      Victory was really bad so I hope this one has a solid framerate

      • Duo Maxwell

        At least Rebirth has better framerate than previous games, so I think they will manage to smooth it out in this one.

        • Chestnut Bowl

          Note that Re;birth was not developed by CH.

      • Bobby Jennings

        All of them were pretty bad. xD

    • Duc PC-QB

      New Nepnep boobs physic will make the fps even worse !

      • Bobby Jennings

        All I care about is Vert.

    • Budgiecat

      that would be hilarious and sad at the same time if it does..

      • Bobby Jennings

        :(

    • Anime10121

      It will, it’s CH, it may as well be as expected as chocobos in FF XD.

      I love the Neptunia series, I just know not to expect anything outta CH :P

  • Eclipse

    I’m really liking how they’re going all-out with the PS4.

    Keep up the great work, Compile Heart <3

    • Zackasaur

      Yeah, I’m super glad that they’re not clinging to the PS3.

      • Shippoyasha

        Compile Heart being more brazen with making new games on the latest console than the big wig publishers. I’m loving it. haha

        • Budgiecat

          Yet they’ll still look like HD PS2 games lol…

          • Shippoyasha

            What can you really expect out of a budget studio?

  • sunK1D

    Change the damn title already lol

    V-II…

    • OverlordZetta

      It’s written VII right there in the trailer. VII is right. Look at the name of the video.

      • sunK1D

        VII = 7
        V-II = Victory 2 = What it should be.

  • greenreaper

    I haven’t played any of the Neptunia games, and probably don’t plan to but I hope this means they’ll start bringing a whole bunch of other new titles as well. My PS4 is getting dusty, it’s exclusives like these that make it worth the purchase.

    • bloodiOS

      Stop being lazy and take care of ya damn console!

  • Kiryu

    2nd Compile Heart game announced,seems they know my weakness to get a PS4.

  • Bob Slim

    Wow so its on ps4 nice Another one give me more reason to buy a ps4

  • Pyrofrost

    As usual, another new console gen starting with trash JRPGs

    • ayb_91

      Every inch in me agrees with you friend. -_-

      • Pyrofrost

        Well, keep in mind that I really LOVE the JRPG genre. I just absolutely hate Compile Heart.

        • ayb_91

          Exactly the same here. I wouldn’t download their games even if they become free for ps plus members. I don’t know about the gameplay or anything else, but the game itself is just pushing me far away from it. Like in alike charges “repulsion”.

          • Pyrofrost

            I gave them a chance, mainly because they were all the PS3 really had for a while.

            The only game from them I ever liked was Cross Edge. Everything else from them was just shit, shit, and more shit. They try to disguise the shit with fanservice, because that is the only thing CH has talent for. So if you’re the gamer that only wants cheap fanservice and corny jokes, then CH games are right up your alley.

            However, if story and character development matter to you in the least, you will be sorely disappointed.

            • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

              Agarest War has cheap fanservice shit? What? XD

              • Pyrofrost

                Agarest is Idea Factory.

                • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

                  Compile Heart is listed on it too, and it’s on their website… So yeah..

                  • Pyrofrost

                    They co-develop it and they publish it (in Japan), but it’s Idea Factory’s baby.

                    Compile Heart is a subsidiary of Idea Factory.

        • Hentailover

          I tried enjoying them, but they are way too much of a slog to enjoy…. aaaaaaaaaaaand extremely wordy. Going through Neptunia’s conversations is just as tedious as it’s dungeon crawling battles, minus the ability to be a total creep and try to get some panty shots from moeblobs you play as.

    • Anime10121

      I’ll admit Neptunia’s not NEARLY what I’d call a masterpiece, but they’re at least fun (barring the first game which was utter trash gameplay wise) unlike most of the rest of Compile Hearts’ stuff…

      • OverlordZetta

        You almost had me until you called the first one trash.

        It was just different, man! I would have loved for then to do that again.

        • Budgiecat

          no really it was bad lol

        • Anime10121

          I found it completely unplayable because of the gameplay, but it’s cool if you enjoyed it, as I’ve heard it has the best parodies/characterizations in the series, but I just couldn’t get past dat gameplay…

          • Renaldi Saputra

            as for what the anime shows, the characterizations were rather poor and meh…
            saw my friends playing and some gaming videos, wasn’t too far from the anime

            I guess we only see consoles gijinka showing their moeshit aspects pretending to be cute-ish or cool-ish, no more…

      • Pyrofrost

        Nothing wrong with people enjoying them. I’m just not a CH fan, and I tend to be vocal about it. I don’t think there is a single JRPG developing company as bad as them to be honest. Though admittedly, as I said below, I loved Cross Edge. If they were to make a Cross Edge 2, I would be all over that.

        Oddly enough, even with my disdain for CH, I actually like Idea Factory a pretty good bit.

        • Anime10121

          Yeah I’m not a Compile Hearts fan either, I’ve tried a BUNCH of their games and never could get into any of them.

          I mean after buying the first Neptunia game it took a LONG time before I would even try Neptunia Mk II, but when I finally did I really enjoyed it (though not near enough to get tricked into buying NPP) but the main games are a go for me :P

    • Luna Kazemaru

      lol man the salt you are pouring is enough to fill a mill grow up man.

      • Pyrofrost

        What the fuck are you talking about dude? I wasn’t aware that making an observation or not liking Compile Heart was a call for the need to “grow up.”

        It’s not like I’m salty, early JRPGs on Sony consoles are almost always garbage.
        King’s Field
        Ever Grace
        Eternal Ring
        Enchanted Arms

        It’s not like I’m making that shit up, or even upset about it.

  • Onodera Kosaki

    PS4 huh well that’s is expected

  • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

    Neptunia on PS4 already imagine what you can do with the power of the console,
    – Destruction of environments
    – Cel Shading more realistic
    – Steal vehicles on streets to cross from one point to another
    – Enter all the houses available
    – Interact in all objects that have the game
    – Open world
    – Let the costumes of the protagonists torn during combat

    Well, these are the details that could be used with the feature of PS4.

    • Budgiecat

      I doubt they’ll bother with most of that stuff..

      this IS Compile Heart after all….

      • Pyrofrost

        Pretty much.

        Expect:
        -Flat story
        -Flat characters
        -Corny jokes
        -Mindless fanservice

        • Budgiecat

          those aren’t even my biggest gripes:

          lacklust VN story presentation (when CH has superior Live2D animation in their damn iOS clock app!)

          unexplorable worlds

          Horrible framerate issues

          non existent NPC’s

          subpar PS2 era graphics

          focus on moe instead of focusing more on video game industry like SEGAGAGA did (need more actual cameos)

          • Pyrofrost

            Some of those things I can forgive due to the studio’s size and budget. For me, the biggest gripe about their games are shit story and characters, whilst using fanservice as its only crutch.

            Don’t get me wrong, I love fanservice. I just don’t like when it’s the only leg a game has to stand on..

            • Renaldi Saputra

              sex jokes, moeshit aspects, some ecchi scenes, and so on

              pretty much
              just like what most of japanese game fans demand these days

              • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

                Actually, it’s more popular in NA… So I guess that’s what most English consumers want.

                • Renaldi Saputra

                  more popular? I guess no, JRPG are still niche in west except some popular titles like Tales of, etc.

                  popular maybe just inside animanga fanbase, no more

                  • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

                    You forget just how powerful the “otaku” fanbase is in North America. X_x

                    • Renaldi Saputra

                      just powerful, but not big
                      big =/= powerful

            • Raztune

              So you’re going to disregard the humour, parodies and references to other game series? Also how are the characters at all bad?
              The only problem with the game is the laziness that they recolor mobs and reuse dungeons. I haven’t had any problems with the framerate.

              • Pyrofrost

                Just so you know, I’m not one of those gamers that has something against people for having a different preference than me or anything.

                If people like these games, that’s all well and good. I simply don’t like it or what it has to offer. If you do like it, that’s fine. I have nothing against you for that, and I don’t see you as less of a gamer or whatever for liking something I don’t like. There is an audience for everything, and I understand that.

                I don’t want it to seem like I’m attacking anyone, because I’m not. At the same time, please understand, that reactions to a game aren’t always going to be positive. This is coming from a guy that plays JRPGs almost exclusively.

    ummmm, these games might get them some cash in japan, but will be dead on arrival in the west

    • Budgiecat

      Actually these game do decent in the West based on shipping to purchase ratio..

    • Anime10121

      Neptunia games are IF/CH bigges series in the west (ie they sell more than enough) :/

      • Renaldi Saputra

        only for the first series
        at least the fanbase is the biggest comparing to another CH/IF titles

    • Pyrofrost

      These games actually do better in the West than they do in Japan. Compile Heart’s only success story in Japan is Monster Monpiece.

    True, it’s just sad. Here they are ready to step into the ring with the big leagues and put a game on PS4, but the industry is doing so poorly over there, they’re only expecting between 40 to 50k in sales :/

  • Renaldi Saputra

    well, they already know their audience

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    Maybe quite high by today’s standards, lol. That’s what saddens me though. I’m not really sure what happened, but games just aren’t selling as well these days.

    Sure, you’ll have a gem here or there that will do great, but I remember it being more of a common thing.

  • Duc PC-QB

    Yeah, every Indie dev will put them to shame.

  • BtShadowX

    I have to wonder what are the mods doing letting this sort of irresponsible individuals throwing around unintellgent flame baits that do nothing except stir up animosity and hurt the unity of the community runs rampant like this?

  • Shippoyasha

    It’s the economy. Japan’s been in an extensive recession (seems like it’ll last forever at this rate) and everybody are too guarded with their money and simply don’t spend it that much. Not to mention the average Japanese citizen is known to be very conservative with spending outside of economic issues.

  • Pyrofrost

    You and your ilk are free to have your opinion, but don’t expect everyone to be in agreement.
