Two more Neptunia games announced for PS Vita

Noel getting her own game. Neptunia Re; Birth incoming.

God Dimension Idol Neptune PP, Compile Heart’s upcoming idol game, isn’t the only Hyperdimension Neptunia game in development for PlayStation Vita. The developer revealed two more titles at the Dengeki Game Festival in Akihabara today.

The first, Chou Megami Shinkou Noire Gekishin Black Heart (Hyper Goddess Faith Noire Fierce God Black Heart—translating these really makes them sound rather silly), stars the series’ popular Noire character.

Details on the second game, Chou Ji Jigen Game Neptune Re; Birth 1 (the kanji is slightly off, but I guess we could refer to this as Hyperdimension Neptunia Re; Birth 1), are unknown, but it was announced with the message “Neptune, restart,” so we’re guessing it’s a remake or reboot of the first game.

Both games are scheduled for 2013 in Japan.

A gameplay video and one part of the opening movie for Idol PP were also shown. The opening song is done by Afilia Saga.

Thanks, Dengeki.

    Vita is getting games now. Hopefully its sales will stablize near 50-60k mark.

    • jujubee88

      Compile Heart was one of the developers who came out early and said they had attentions of making a VITA game.

      So, we (VITA owners) where really just waiting to see what they would announce. Good to hear they have been busy! :)

      Damn so many Vita announcements this year. Finally it is getting its support!

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Game announcements like these aren’t going to keep Vita selling 50-60k. It will drop next week.

  • ryougazell


    This two get me interested… unlike the idol game. I had to cancel my Neptunia Victory pre-order, but hope to get the game next year (and hope to have played Mk2 by then as well)

  • Elvick

    Awesome. NIS America has a lot of work to do!

    • jujubee88

      I dunno. I kinda just want the JRPG’s on my VITA.

      I don’t really crave idol games on my device right now. Maybe later when I want to have something on my back log (that I just stumble onto). Right now, I am just looking to dive into some new, localized JRPG’s on VITA (asap).

      But maybe that’s just me!

  • Eclipse

    Whoa, so one of them is actually starring Noire?! Well, this news has made my weekend! Compile Heart has quickly become one of my all-time favorite developers <3

    Oh, and since we know know that there will be a trio of upcoming Neptune games available on the Vita, I'm guessing there will be a higher chance for Nisa to localize 'em.

  • Solomon_Kano

    WOW. Three? I don’t even play the Neptunia games, but I’ll start if we get all 3 of these. Good on Compile Heart for the support.

  • Give me them all NISA!

  • ギャビン

    I want!

  • MrKappa

    It was only a matter of time before Noire got a game of her own. I’m pretty sure she is the most popular character out of the bunch.

  • KIngpigeon96

    Great news. Looking forward to the Noire game.

  • TimeMaster

    Oh wow, if it really is an HDN1 remake then I can finally finish it. My HDN1 copy is collecting dust while my HDN mk2 is happily content with it’s Platinum status.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      Yeah and if they really do remake it from the bottom up, keeping the story/dialogue as it is, it’ll probably go from the worst Neptunia tot he best one.

  • Cleiton Santos

    These games belong on the vita anyways since they don’t actually use the power of the PS3 to begin with. I’ll get them all!

  • RoxasTheUnknown1

    NISA please! I wonder if Rebirth will be A: The first game with mk2-V gameplay of B: A reboot that fits the first game into the mk2 canon universe.

  • Juuu

    I would appreciate a remake of the first game–It had GREAT writing and humor and a really great heart, but the battle system is terrible compared to the later Neptunia games. If it’s a polished remake with those enhancements, I’d double-dip for sure!

  • will get them hands down

  • zazza345

    Just a minor correction, “Fierce” is 激戦, while the Noire game title has 激神, so the meaning is different…

  • tubers

    The VITA’s definitely developing a death grip on the Otaku market.


    • Kurisu Makise

      If they want to make some money in Japan, that’s the first market to lock in. Otaku came for the PSP, gotta make sure they come in for Vita too. Worry about the kids and casuals later on.

  • zakou

    This is crazy xD how am I to get into these games where more and more keep coming out/ getting announced. Shees.

  • Hikaru Lighthalzen

    Great! , this would be a pleasure for the PSV owners that didnt have ps3

  • Guest

    That’s it! I am officially done with the series! Just started thinking about the amount of Hyperdimension Neptunia games I need to catch up on with my limited time and budget is already enough to make me grieve. I’ll just pretend this series never existed, so I can stop feeling frustrated about the situation.

    • Ni

      Welcome to the Otaku centric franchises

  • Kefkiroth

    I’d definitely buy Rebirth if it is a reboot/remake of the first game, because I’ve heard good things about it, and Hyperdimension Neptunia in general.
    Only thing that bothers me is that Western critics severely underrate the series, which might discourage NISA, especially since this is the Vita, which isn’t doing as well over here.

  • Anime10121

    Vita is starting to build a reservoir of games that I’d play! Now, if this (even one, well barring the idol game which I could care less either way) gets announced for localization, my new rule of a bare minimum of three titles for me to buy a new console will have been met (Gravity Rush, Y’s, and Neptunia/Noire game)!
    A vita I may yet possess!

    No longer will I buy a new system out of hype or anticipation of a “launch title” (The Wonderful 101 WHERE ARE U??? and only God knows when Bayonetta 2 will release), the console must have games released for me to buy one!

    Want a PS4 bad as all heck, but unfortunately wont be getting one at launch, as none of the games announced thus far are from series that I actually enjoy :(

  • 新阿修羅(ShinAsura)

    Ugh, my wallet

  • Neppygear

    Cries in agony. Now I kinda *have* to get a Vita.


    Yay for more Vita love~~ can’t wait to play them in japanese.

  • DesmaX

    A remake of the first one? Hope they put their new battle system on it. That battle system was horrible

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Remake of the first one? Yes plsss

  • uhawww

    Noire-centric game?
    <3 <3 <3

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    As much as I would want to play them I’ll probably pass. 3 Neptunia games on one system in one year seems a bit like overkill.

  • Compile Heart is on fireeeeeeeeee

  • Talearc

    Finally a game for my Vita LOL

  • PrinceHeir

    man i guess im glad i waited on this version :D

    these games fit perfect on PS Vita :)

  • fyi1191

    TWO copies if Neptune Reboot battle system turns out to be like Tales of Series.

  • Adol Christian

    More Vita games :)
