Just like in real life, the console war continues on in Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2, just announced for release in the US and Europe at NIS America’s recent TGS event. If you’re unfamiliar with the series, you can check out our FAP of the first game, but all you really need to know is that it’s a JRPG about the console wars. Each console is personified as an adorable girl with looks and personality befitting of her console, and they all duke it out Highlander style, basically.
The same cast of characters will return in Mk2, but the battle system has been totally revamped. We’re told battles will be more strategic this time, the combo system will be streamlined to be faster, and the overmap and exploration are receiving overhauls as well. We’re eager to see what improvements the sequel will make over its predecessor, so look for more details before Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 releases next Spring.
