For those that are unaware, they make some absolutely insane games in Japan. Case in point: Hyperdimension Neptunia and its sequel, Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2.
Believe it or not, the Neptunia games tell a story about warring game developers who come together to battle the personification of piracy. And it’s all done in the style of a very Japanese relationship RPG. Hyperdimension Neptunia was released in America last year to gasps of shock and NIS America has announced that Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2 will be making its way across the Pacific as well. The PS3-exclusive is scheduled for a February 28 release and it sounds just as weird and wonderful as its predecessor:
Return once more to the world of Gamindustri, where the Criminal of the Free World, Arfoire, has defeated the four CPUs of Gamindustri. It is now up to their younger sisters to free them from captivity.
Nepgear, the CPU Candidate of Planeptune and younger sister to Neptune, sets out on her quest with IF and Compa to regain Gamindustri’s prosperity, stop the syndicate of evil that Arfoire created, and set her sister free! During her travels across the world, Nepgear will encounter friends new and old, meet the other CPU Candidates, and take care of any monsters that stand in her way in this classic JRPG tale of good versus evil!
Even the plot description defies all logic and sense! Thankfully, Wikipedia users have deciphered the madness with a pretty in-depth Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2 entry. You’ll probably want to read it a few times before February 28.
