Idea Factory has just announced that their collaboration with Sega, Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls is now coming to the West.
Superdimension Neptune VS SHG is a collaboration of sorts between Compile Heart and Sega, taking place in a crossover universe where the groups work as one. Fans of Hyperdimension Neptunia may have heard of the Sega Hard Girls, a group of anthropomorphized video game consoles that Sega created throughout the years. The Sega Hard Girls have appeared in various media formats during their time, from the humble light novel to a full-blown anime.
Seeing as the girls of Hyperdimension Neptunia are similar in their makeup, it’s an interesting collaboration that actually makes a lot of sense for the universe (Neptune was even named after an unreleased Sega console). The game itself will take players on an adventure through time, in a world where history is literally disappearing in front of their very eyes. Though the girls aren’t quite sure how this all happened, all they do know is they’re ready to make it right again.
The game will take place over a number of different gaming eras, each one corresponding with a different time in Sega’s console history. Each world is connected by a main hub—the library from which history is vanishing—with players using it to travel to different areas.
Superdimension Neptune VS SHG is due to be released in the fall of 2016, and will be available for the PS Vita. At present only the US version of the site is up , but according to Idea Factory there will be an EU one coming soon. The game will come with full English voice acting, but also contains a Japanese voice-over with English subs for purists.
