Hypderdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection is shimmying over to North America on June 3 and then Europe just three days later, NIS America has announced. The PlayStation Vita idol game stars the heroines of Compile Heart's RPG series, and asks players to manage the ladies' dancing and singing careers. Are you up to the challenge?

Review: Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God photo
Review: Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God
by Wesley Ruscher

With the amount of role-playing adventures I’ve journeyed through in my life that culminate in apocalyptic showdowns, I’m a little tired. Save the world, rinse, and repeat. It’s so rare that a Japanese RPG deviates from this path. Perhaps it is why I mostly enjoyed last year’s critically panned Time and Eternity. The game was a mess -- both in gameplay and with its unnecessarily perverted sidekick -- yet amidst its troubles I found its overall theme refreshing.

We live in a world full of problems: some big and some small. And while they may all not be the most altruistic, it doesn't change the fact they still may be important or, at the very least, interesting subject matter to us. This is what Time and Eternity excelled at, and it’s something Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God does even better.

Besides, saving the world is overrated.

Compile Heart has a Vita announcement coming Monday

All we can do is wonder until Monday (Japan Time) about Compile Heart's brief message on their homepage about a new Vita announcement. So see you back here on September 30. I hope it's something about Galapagos. They've thrown teases out a couple of times, but we've yet to hear anything else. Regardless, we're always glad to see a Vita announcement. We'll take anything!

Feast your eyes on Fairy Fencer F opening film

Compile Heart has unveiled the opening film for its PlayStation 3 exclusive role-playing game, Fairy Fencer F. It looks, well, familiar. Despite boasting contributions from Final Fantasy illustrator Yoshitaka Amano and legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu, the title could still easily pass for the next  Hyperdimension Neptunia game. Yep.
