3D action game to feature sky battles, big bosses.

Namco Bandai is producing a 3D action game based on the Vividred Operation anime for PlayStation 3, the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation reveals.

The game will use toon rendering and aims to faithfully reproduce the anime. The characters’ thighs will be of particular highlight.

Players will fight in intense battles while flying freely about the sky. The title will also have adventure game-like conversation parts with supposedly branching dialogue. Oh, and insanely big bosses (according to our source, at least).

Thanks, Game Nyarth.

    Glad they have their priorities straight

    • Lee

      Sure they do.

    My dream… has been made a reality~!

    Seriously though, while I was watching the Anime I thought that this could make an awesome 3D action game. I just can’t believe it’s actually happening. XD

      Eclipse you know how happy I am right now!

      • Eclipse

        Yeah, you must be in a state of complete bliss! XD

        This announcement was just so surprising, ya know? Quite unexpected, but also very pleasing~

        • Himiko

          And now we have a new Neptune. *dead*

  • DarthBrian

    thighs? *_*

  • There also seems to a be something HyperDimensional listed above it. ;)

    • Yeah. It’s called Kami Jigen Idol Neptune PP. Or God Dimension Idol Neptune PP. I guess it’ll be called Hyperdimension Neptunia PP here? I dunno where they’d throw the Idol in. Though the JP title for the other games has the word Game in there, but it’s absent from the English title, so… I dunno.

      GN says it’s for PS3 and the genre’s unknown. Waiting for a few more details to surface before I post it. Which is good because this isn’t good timing for me anyhow. But yeah, if additional deats don’t surface soon, I’ll go ahead and make a post.

      • NISA will have to figure out the title, if it’s genuine, but until then, it’s whatever I guess.

        Hopefully more details do appear. It doesn’t sound like an RPG, it could just be a social game or dating sim…

    I prefer a Mahou Senki Lyrical Nanoha Force game.
    Oh well…they love young characters.

  • The anime grew on me. Yeah it’s fanservice, but hey it holds kind of well.

  • Himiko

    Don’t really like the anime that much, so i guess the game would not change my mind but i find it really good how many more anime-type of games are coming to the PS3, or just coming out at all.

    Namco Bandai isn’t afraid of releasing more anime type of games and that is really good.

    “The characters’ thighs will be of particular highlight.” Why is this acceptable -.- /facepalm Anyway, fanservice aside (in both anime and now clearly the game), I found the anime quite charming and the world filled with good potential. Since it’s NB, I’m sure the toon rendering will be up to snuff and I hope the action is competent.

      Because in Japan’s struggling economy and decreasing gaming industry, they can and have chosen to only pander to the lonely perverted Otaku crowd which eats this stuff up. They are not catering to outside gaming community since they feel they cannot compete at the financial level of Western developers with their Hollywood sized budgets.

      And they feel they can’t capture the average Japanese person’s interest because contrary to Western popular belief, Japanese average person does not look favorably on video games and Anime positively anyway.

      This is why you see so many minimal sales for Japanese exclusive games (usually anywhere from 30K to 100K if it’s not a Nintendo or S-E game) in Japan compared to + 1 million sales in the U.S. and EU where gaming has gone full mainstream.

      And in their minds, any outside niche followers barely exist to make it worth their time…so…

        A strong ring of truth in your words, hardly worth 2 down votes but good reply. It’s…I don’t know, I don’t feel it’s Rocket Science what needs to be done. Catering to niche’s is great for Falcom and co but everyone else can’t follow suit, less you never get a chance to attract people outside the niche anyway. Thankfully I can either ignore it or don’t mind it because often times the game play is fun/good or other elements are more appealing but I’m in the minority on the outside niche as it is ><;
