We thought Idea Factory's bizarre strategy RPG Hyper Dimension Neptune
was too, well, bizarre
to localize, given that it's about game consoles (in the form of girls) fighting against the scourge of piracy. We should have remembered that NIS America is on call to localize weird strategy games that probably have no business in America.
NIS is localizing the PS3 game as Hyperdimension Neptunia
, in which you take the role of the title console/goddess in order to save the land of Gameindustri from the evil Arfoire
, using summon spells based on other games. Unlike the dead Sega console
for which it's named, Neptunia
has a release window: spring 2011.
