More info about the possible Neptune mk-II:

Quote:
A few preliminary details on the sequel have leaked out from Dengeki PlayStation. As with the original, Neptune mk-II, fully "Choujigen Game Neptune mk-II," is in development for PlayStation 3. The scenario is being handled by Natsumi Iwasaki.

Characters introduced in Dengeki include:

Purple Sister, aka Nepgear
Black Sister, aka Uni
White Sister, aka Rom & Ram

With that "Gear" in the character's name, it looks like there will indeed be a portable theme.

The game is said to have improved graphics and a four party battle system.

Compile Heart is readying both standard (7,329) and limited (9,429) versions. We're seeing either an August or September release time period depending on the source, so we'll have to wait for verification on this area.

Ah so it's for the PS3 AND the old characters will be returning. Interesting.~

Nepgear is obviously a refrence to the Sega Game Gear. I don't get Uni and Rom & Ram's references to the PSP and DS though.

Poor Vert has no sister.~

Yeah, they could add iPhone reference, but that's not an MS product so even if it exists, I think it won't be Vert's sister.

EDIT: More info:

Quote:
As detailed earlier, Dengeki introduces three characters: Purple Sister Nepgear, Black Sister Uni and White Sister Rom & Ram. These characters are voiced respectively by Yui Horie, Eri Kitamura, Yui Ogura and Kaori Ishihara

Yes, Rom and Ram are two different people. They look like twins, although Rom has blue hair and pink eyes while Ram has pink hair and blue eyes. They appear to have different personalities during battle -- Rom is naive and will jump right in to attack while Ram is reserved and doesn't say much. (You might want to wait until we get a clearer description before trying to figure out if this is indicative of actual ROM and RAM.)

As with the original Neptune, the game is full of all sorts of video game and real world references. Some of these center on an element called "Mintsubu." This is a reference to the Japanese word for Twitter or Tweeting. Everyone in the game world is into this real time Tweet system. Users of Mintsubu have avatars, and the magazine apparently shows images that resemble, Mario, Luigi, El Shaddai, Toro and Segata Sanshiro.

On the gameplay front, the game will have a four member party battle system. You'll be able to pair up two characters together through the "Lilly System."
Lol, "lily" system?
and they're also referencing to twitter.. interesting.

Wait, why the heck are both the Nintendo sisters lolis? Why are all the girls lolis??

And also, for anyone who owns the original Japanese artbook, Nepgear's is Neptune's original design....which is one with long hair. They apparently thought she is too loli and not genki enough, that is why they changed her.

Also :

Uni = PSP. I WANT ANOTHER TSUNDERE. Eri Kitamura FTW! Cuderia from Atelier as the self-confident ojou (tsun) and Sayaka from Madoka (dere)!

Rom (read-only memory) = Gameboy (references to the gameboy cartridges)
Ram (Random access memory)= DS. Obviously.

Also I was wondering why they didn't feature the Wonderswan console - that itself is a legend running in Japan for quite sometime and is a precursor to most 3D game consoles today.

Apparently, they are ALL reused artwork of the CG4 (Console Goddesses 4). Check the Japanese artbook, page 30-40 for details - I'll do the scans up onto this forum if someone requests because I only did the first 20 the last time round and someone PM-ed me about copyright issues (but it turned up on Sankaku too, bastards. )

Handheld industry is an interesting place - it has been around for a decade but it hasn't been growing since Nintendo led with the Gameboy.

Apparently Uni is the DFC now seeing that the PSP has been a relatively new addition to the industry and has been actively hacked with CFWs (it is Sony's fault of claiming it for Homebrew then retracting the claim, then the game-makers not wanting to put DRMs or any bonus materials with their games - idiots.)

Also, Uni looks A WHOLE LOT LIKE YUUKI MIKAN FROM TO-LOVE-RU IN YAMI-CHAN'S BATTLEDRESS.

Quote:

But they are.....lolis! I wonder how are they like since their elder sister is a loli too, AND that :

1. They have bigger boobs than their onee-chan.
2. They look like Ateliers.

I wonder if they will inherit Blanc's vulgar mouth and ice-queen attitude?

Also, I see a chibi-If (reused artwork too) and maybe Compa.....

Also, I managed to hear the full ED theme of the game thanks to someone who kindly sent me a link to it. It is done by an AKB48/SNSD girlband type group known as Knee High Egoist. The lyrics for the ED and the title itself are incredibly tsundere (恋をゲームにしないで!- TL-ed as Don't turn love into a game!) - it should have been sung by Noire.

I at least hope the exploration mechanic is better, like actual traversable cities with NPC's. The point-and-click from the first game was pretty bland, but I'm not holding my breath for an improvement there.

Pair up two characters together? I hope that's not implying what I think it's implying and means more like combo attacks. =T

What interests me in those scans in the screenshots to the right of Uni, which looks like our villain. Seems to be a goddess just like the main 4. Is it Arfoire again?

According to SaintessHeart, nothing is being implied and you're a bad person for thinking so.

In any case, does anyone have any theories on what the aforementioned NPG is going to be? I figured it would have been one of the main characters, but at this rate it might as well be the antagonist of the game. It couldn't possibly be NePGear, that'd just be too lame considering it's strangely similar to the incoming NGP.

That comment made me think just the opposite actually. Could've stated that a little more directly then.

Relieved to hear that it's what I was hoping for.~

From the looks of things, they have been turned to kids by one of Arfoire's sisters and still waging a portable war against one another.

And the reason why they are "lolis" is because they are based off portables of course.

Although my relationship voice acting makes me want to have Izumi from Dog Days receiving an healthy source of attraction from Nepgear.

Also fast Japan is fast

I see that the girls have a lot less size, along with clothing too.

well, Vert might have no sisters, but at least her style of clothing are used by them except for the twins~

CH is also asking fans to design their accessories and processor units. Wish I could participate~

^ Kinda ironic for the guy who said the Japanese games are crappy (and we know that games like Neptune tend to be viewed negatively by most gamers).

European gamers - because they don't understand the concept of cute girls and have stamps on their eyes.

Noire is the perfect girl (other than her goddess form which turns her into a yandoru), and most boob-lovers are lusting after Vert and her torpedo tits.

No. Because all the girls are still as moe as ever. We just need to edit the thread name and the OP.

Seems the gameplay's been tweaked quite a bit for the battle system judging from this batch of screenshots:

http://www.siliconera.com/postgallery/?p_gal=124616|0

Looks to me like enemy encounters will actually occur on the area map itself (instead of just having random encounters) and a circle will appear around everyone showing the area of battle, all the characters are displaced too instead of in one spot so I guess you need to move one next to a monster in order to attack it and such. This is just speculation though.

Looks like Compa and IF will be party members too, but that's not too surprising since they were major characters in the first game as well.

Even though the 4 goddesses did appear in the screenshots in the magazine scans, it looks like their role in this game isn't as significant. I'm sure they'll be party members but something tells me they won't be available until a certain point due to the plot.
