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.

Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory photo
Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory
by Kyle MacGregor

Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory is nothing if not high-concept. A thinly veiled allegory for the console wars, this is the third entry in a series of JRPGs which casts anthropomorphic caricatures of Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, and Sega as goddesses vying with one another for supremacy over the world of Gamindustri.

The premise is as exciting as it's ever been, but that's never really been Hyperdimension Neptunia's problem. Decidedly mediocre affairs, the games have never quite lived up to the intrigue, hamstrung by a failure to deliver an engrossing experience beyond the clever conceit. Victory is definitely a step forward for the series; however, Compile Heart seems all too keen to shoot itself in the foot on the road to progress.
