Hyperdimension Neptunia V Looks Hecka’ Weird

But weird in a good way.

This is the third installment of the Neptunia RPG series dropping March 12, 2013 for PS3. I never got to play the first two, but considering the series is about fan-service-y anime girl versions of popular video game consoles as they fight a literal console war, it’s pretty high up on my list of weird niche games that I need to play before I die.

Check out the trailer:

It’s like someone took a bunch of things that I’m totally all about and crammed ‘em into an RPG. On the real, I want action figures of every single character from this game.

Pre-order: Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory

Every PS3 Owner Needs To Buy Hyperdimension Neptunia!

Why? Because it takes place in the world of Gamindustry and features super-cute anime girls who are anthropomorphic versions of various video game consoles. The game will have you defending Gamindustry against the evil Arfore, which is a non-too subtle metaphor for the game industry’s fight against piracy aka products like the R4 aka the evil Arfore.

Oh, and you can use their video game console-y powers to load game discs and summon characters from games like Alex Kidd and Super Shinobi.

And did I mention the part about super-cute anime girls?

And the icing on the cake? There’ll be a collector’s edition with a 36-page art book.

Hyperdimension Neptunia will be available exclusively for the PS3 sometime this February from NIS America and pre-orders will be open soon over on Play-Asia.
