Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2 coming soon

Last year’s mature rated, tongue in cheek, RPG parody Hyperdimension Neptunia for the Playstation 3, has a sequel coming.  Los Angeles based publisher NIS America, is bringing Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2 to North America this month.  For those that never played the original, Hyperdimension Neptunia is an RPG where you control personifications of gaming consoles with the objective of protecting the world of Gamindustri.  Some of the areas players visit are named after home gaming consoles (i.e. Lastation, Leanbox and Lowee.)

Hyperdimension NeptuniaMK2 promises an all-new free-roam battle system that offers more strategic combat and a streamlined combo system allows for faster combo executions.  Also new to the series is an item synthesis system to craft items and weapons and Coliseum to test your strength and face powerful opponents.  Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2 for the PlayStation 3 will be shipped out on February 28, 2012 for North America.Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2 is the story of four heroines, the younger sisters of the CPUs (Console Patron Units) from Hyperdimension Neptunia, a not so subtle nod to the early Final Fantasy games.  The younger sisters represent of course handheld consoles instead of the home consoles, as in the original.  Not only RPGs are referenced as the action point, turn based RPG takes place in 20XX which may sound familiar to Megaman fans.
