Hyperdimension Neptunia U

Compile Heart has gone live with four new gameplay videos of Hyperdimension Neptunia U.

Each clip focuses on one of the different playable goddesses. Each has their own set of skills, and you’ll see the “Costume Break” system in full effect.

Watch the clips below. The Tamsoft-developed PS Vita action game is due out on August 28 in Japan.

      Gotta thank Takaaki for injecting that knowledge into Tamsoft’s brain.

      • TheBlackRabbit

        thanks Takaaki…..>.>…..<.<………Q ~ Q

    • Shippoyasha

      Yes! Costume break!

      • TheBlackRabbit

        NO! XD

    Fan service maximum

  • The Grim Heaper

    I’m guessing the ‘human’ characters won’t be playable? :(

  • Tenshiken

    From the looks of it, I’ll need to set this game’s difficulty to “hard” from the get go.

    • inb4 there is no difficulty select cause since when did neptune games have those, but we’ll see when the trophy list is out.

      • Speedometris Maximus

        Neptunia 1 had a difficulty select. It just increased the damage everybody took and gave, so battles would go faster.

      • crazyhunter

        Rebirth 1 and 2 technically have easy normal and hard mode

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

    First game for which I paid extra amount for super fast delivery. Looks like I was right *shakes in anticipation*

  • fyi1191

    I guess it’s time to finally mute some character’s voice.
    Both Noire and Vert’s special look the most painful.

  • DarthBrian

    I want this game badly.

    Saying that, I wish they didn’t do that costume break stuff. Seems pointless.

    • Elvick

      Agree, but I guess they want the SK appeal.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Agreed. Its reallly making me hate it right now

  • I hate costume destruction but yeah i’ll still get this since Noire and Rom are love.

  • http://gamesero.wordpress.com/ Arla

    Are people really complaining about fanservice in a Neptunia game?.
    Anyways, I’m glad the series got spin-offs in genres I like. I would probably have never gotten around to playing the RPGs, but assuming this beat ’em up and the strategy game get localized I’ll definitely play some Neptunia in the future. I’m most likely gonna start off with the idol game.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Complaining about how it’s delivered really.

      And in this case it wasn’t needed.

      • Bob Slim

        Wasnt needed really its a fanservice game in case you didnt know

        • Bobby Jennings

          lol. I’m saying it wasn’t needed for this game. It was kinda unnecessary.

          I don’t see the other HDN games doing it like this.

    • Bob Slim

      If you a trophy hunter like me that idol game is a easy plat

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

    They already did, Uncharted Abyss

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

    When will Budgie stop stating the obvious?

  • Bobby Jennings

    No flinching?

  • TreizeX

    Never thought I’d say this but it actually looks pretty decent

  • Bobby Jennings

    The sound effects dont sound too good.

    I also wish the transformations had some animation or something when transforming.

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

      THey haven’t had transformation sequences for a while now…

      • Bobby Jennings

        So what? That means they shouldn’t have them at all in the future?

        I’m just saying I’m surprised there isn’t any in this one.

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

          What I am saying is that you shouldn’t be surprised.

          • Bobby Jennings

            I’m not. Sorry if it sounded that way

  • Bob Slim

    I hope its not the last hyperdimension game like this. I want more costumes break in my games

  • Leon_Tekashi

    I’m one of those people who don’t mind the costume break, but it would be better if the option to have the costume break cut-ins optional. If they can give us the option in Senran Kagura 2, I don’t see why they won’t give us the option in this game.

    • Natsu Dragneel

      I personally can care less whether clothes break or not. But I really can do without the cut ins. Hopefully it’s a option. and in Senran 2 you can turn it off? How about Shinovi Vs? If you can in Shinovi I’d be soo happy.

      • Leon_Tekashi

        Sadly, not in Shinovi VS, which sucks.

    • Budgiecat

      “Omg my clothes! Look what you’ve done! Oh!”

      harmless looking cute enemies: “wtf bitch…we barely even touched yo ass…is this girl on crack? Why are you bothering us anyway?this some bullshit. I aint goin to prison for dis.. “

  • FelixFelice

    I really hope this isn’t the final product. Sound effects are terrible. Attacks don’t seem to have any impact. No transformation sequence. Specials look pretty lame as well. Costume breaks could have been handled better too. I’ll still buy it though since I am a sucker for hack and slash and anything Neptunia related.

  • PrinceHeir


  • Kayseur

    A couple of stuff is bothering me in those videos, like, as someone else said, the attacks don’t seem to have much weight to them, or that it’s lacking animation when doing special attacks or transformations (especially since SK has them).

    But I’m still going to get this, because I do think I’m going to enjoy it.
    (And I don’t care at all about costume break stuff or whatever. Just hope it’s skippable like in SK.)

  • Eclipse

    Seriously, instead of wasting your life away by constantly trolling just for the sake of it, you can always just ignore the article…

  • AlphaSixNine


    I’m gonna try and wait a bit to see if it gets localized first. Almost every game I’ve imported ended up getting localized (CONCEPTION 2, Akiba’s Trip, Neptunia PP, Project Diva f, Tales of Hearts R, Ar noSurge, Meruru+ just to name a few). I’ve learned to be cautious.

    Oh and… yay costume break! :D

    • TwinBuns

      Don’t jinx it! Based on your experience surely you’ve got to import it to seal its chances of a localisation so we can all enjoy it.

      If anyone is going to bring the HDN games across then maybe Noire Gekishin will come first by a few months?

  • Anime10121

    Excuse me sir cat, but this here is like the fine cuisine of pervy meals! Nep Nep is a fine flat meal!

  • TwinBuns

    Hmm, seems to be a lot of complaints in the comments. A slightly disturbing level of fan service was my immediate reaction, but on later thought I’d like to think these are just attack move and costume break exhibition videos and don’t reflect final gameplay.

    It’s not like the health bars are moving at all. It looks like it’s been setup just for these videos so the costumes break easily and to allow transforming freely.

  • devilmaycry0917

    this game needs to be in 1080P60FPS on PS4

    • Duc PC-QB

      No thanks, 4K 120fps PC master race

      • Dago

        LOL,as if the developer was up to the task

  • Arcliff7

    Waiting for it to get to my house now.

  • MrKappa

    I am so desensitized to this costume breaking thing that I don’t see it being a big deal at all.
    If anything I’m more worried if it this will turn out to be a fulfilling action game.

    • OverlordZetta

      It’s being made by the Senran Kagura devs, so I’d be surprised if it didn’t.

  • Anime10121

    IF, Nis, or whoever needs to get this shit to me localized TOMORROW! You here me you two?! GET ON IT NOW >:D

    If i didnt already have a Vita, this would sell me one!

  • Luna Kazemaru

    IMO i find costume break is out of place for HDN

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

    My libido took over, ended up buying this

    Ever since I saw Kill la Kill, I no longer bat an eye at these sort of things.
