Nin Nin Ninja, Ninja, Rap
In a collaboration set to rock the foundations of the very galaxy itself, Compile Heart has announced that goofy adventure series Hyperdimension Neptunia is getting set to crossover with cheeky cheesecake franchise Senran Kagura for a brand new, sword-and-sorcery, action RPG.
As revealed by Famitsu, the succinctly titled Senran Nin Nin Ninja Taisen Neptune: Shoujo-tachi no Kyouen is currently in development for PS4, and is tentatively scheduled to launch in Japan later in 2021. An expectedly silly premise sees two ninja schools – one trained in the art of “Command” attack and the other in the art of “Action” attack, combine forces when the land is invaded by a mysterious third school of unknown origin, kicking off the world-shaking “Super Ninja Wars.”
Senran Nin Nin Ninja Taisen Neptune will star a bevy of battlers from both the Neptunia and Senran Kagura franchises, and will no doubt be packed to the rafters with dopey comedy and much fanservice. The new adventure will also introduce a brand new character in the form of protagonist “Yuuki,” voiced by popular Japanese singer and voice actor Miku Itou.
While the crossing over of Hyperdimension Neptunia and Senran Kagura seems a fine fit on paper, I’m not sure if our humble Earth can handle the utter ridiculousness that such a partnership will bring forth. I guess all we can do right now is pick a side. And while Daidoji will always be one of my favorite gaming gals, you’ll find me firmly in the corner of Team NEP.
