The first promotional video for the upcoming anime adaptation of popular Japanese RPG series Hyperdimension Neptunia has been streamed. It is due to be aired in July 2013 under the title Choujigen Game Neptune The Animation.
The anime seems to adapt the events of the first game but adds in several new twists. Neptune finds herself in an alternate dimension where the three land continents differ from their original versions and where a new goddess, Iris Heart, rules Planeptune instead.
Choujigen Game Neptune, as it’s known in Japan, has surprisingly continued to sell well overseas with Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory serving as the latest and third addition to the PS3 game series. Using personified consoles the games serve as a parody of the gaming industry itself.
The publisher has recently unveiled Hyperdimension Idol Neptunia PP, Hyper Goddess Faith Noir: Extreme God Black Heart and a remake of the first game, Hyperdimension Neptunia: Rebirth 1 all for the PS Vita.
