The recent spin-off of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series from NIS America, Producing Perfection (or PP for short) has finally been given a release date for when it’ll be available in Europe and North America. Those looking forward to the game won’t have long to wait, as it will be coming to Europe on June 6th and to North America a couple days earlier on June 3rd. The Idol management simulator is one of the few games in the genre to see a release in english, while also parodying several elements found in other idol sims like the extremely popular idolm@ster series, or japanese idol culture in general (The idol group in the game, MOB-48 sounds strangely similar to real idol group AKB-48, don’t you think?).
As per tradition with NISA, the limited edition will be exclusively available on the NISA Online store, which contains the game, a microfibre cloth featuring the Gamindustri CPUs, branded earbuds contained within a special collector’s box.

About the game:
The player takes on the role of the main character, who’s been summoned to Gamindustri and is immediately hired by one of the four CPUs—Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert—to be their producer and manage their idol careers. Get your training wheels on, ladies, because a new producer is in town and the fate of Gamindustri hangs in the balance! Will you be able to properly raise these CPUs into idols, or will their citizens be stolen away from them by the popular idol group MOB-48!? Teach these girls to sing, dance, and properly promote themselves to the general populace thanks in part to your expertise in training video game idols back on Earth. As the girls’ popularity rises, they will be able to join one another in singing duets, or maybe even come together for a full ensemble!
Prove your producer prowess: Show you’re the perfect producer for your CPU idols by choosing their daily activities, boosting stats with different lessons and increasing their fanbase through PR events.
