HYPERDIMENSION NEPTUNIA PP (WORKING TITLE) TO HIT NORTH AMERICA AND EUROPE IN 2014!
Santa Ana, Calif. (October 23, 2013) NIS America is proud to announce the acquisition of Hyperdimension Neptunia PP (working title) for the PlayStation®Vita system for both North American and European markets in 2014. This title has a planned release for both retail and PSN formats. Developed by IDEA FACTORY and COMPILE HEART, the fan-favorite Hyperdimension Neptunia CPU goddesses are back, and this time it is
your job to guide them to become Gamindustri’s most popular and up-and-coming idols!
About the game:
The player takes on the role of the main character, who happens to fall into 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!
