Hyperdimension Neptunia mk-II announced [Update]

Compile Heart has officially announced the sequel to this year’s Hyperdimension Neptunia (or last year’s in Japan). Titled Hyperdimension Neptunia mk-II (or Coujigen Game Neptune mk-II in Japan), the sequel is in development for PlayStation 3 and is being handled by Natsumi Iwasaki, who also managed the first game.

As one might have suspected from the teaser countdown, set to hit zero this Thursday, Neptunia mk-II will introduce new characters. Dengeki has the first look at three of them.

  • Purple Sister, or Nepgear
  • Black Sister, or Uni
  • White Sister, or Rom & Ram

Outdoing its predecessor, Neptunia mk-II will have improved graphics and a four party battle system.

The game will release in both standard and limited editions, going for 7,329 and 9,429 yen, respectively. It’ll launch in Japan in either August or September.

Thanks, Andriasang.

Update next day 9:07am: New information, couresty of Andriasang, has arrived. Additionally, we’ve added a full set of scans.

Rom and Ram, mentioned earlier, are twins. Rom has blue hair and pink eyes while Ram has pink hair and blue eyes. Though they’re twins, they have completely different personalities. Rom will jump right into battle and attack, but Ram will stay back on defense and not say much.

As the game is a sequel to Hyperdimension Neptunia, you can expect the same type of game parodies. One new element introduced in Neptunia mk-II is “Mintsubu,” which is a play on the Japanese word for Twitter. Everyone in the game world has a Mintsubu account, each with their own avatars resembling characters like Mario, Luigi, El Shaddai, Toro the cat, and Segata Sanshiro.

Check out the scans below.
