Compile Heart Teases Next Neptunia Game Plus a New, Original, and Depressing IP Fans Might Not Expect

The latest Dengeki PlayStation (via Ryokutya2089) has revealed some details regarding the newest titles from Compile Heart.

The interview with company president Norihisa Kochiwa confirms they’re working on yet another Neptunia game, which he boasts will exceed their fans’ expectations by 1000%, and that it won’t fail your expectations. He also revealed they’re working on new, original titles outside the Neptunia series.

Kochiwa notes one such new game will be different from what the company has been known for, teasing that it’s a slightly different RPG with depressing music and throwback (or nostalgic) graphics.

The company’s latest game, Megadimension Neptunia VIIR, is coming to both North America and Europe sometime next spring.

    Lord knows we need more depressing IPs.

  • Mino Kraehe

    Sounds great

  • WeeabooJudas

    So a three hour grind, then your dog dies in a cut scene.


  • Mr0303

    They’ve been trying new things with Neptunia, but I’m more interested to see what the new IP will be about.

  • Vex

    More excited for the new IP than the one that has been dragged on for too long.

  • Psyramics

    A depressing IP?

    So… the waifus are dressed modestly?

  • Great, we really do need some depressing IPs, if the “depressing” part is well-made at least.

  • Mechonis

    >Throwback graphics
    I had no expectations and now I have less then that

  • catazxy

    So can I expect goth lolis?

  • Jack Thompson

    This. I don’t give a shit about nepshit and they almost had my interest with “new” ip, but 99% of devs can’t do retro/throwback/nostalgia art styles properly.

    “New depressing IP”
    It will be the Dark Souls of Compile Heart games :^)

  • GuyGuysonEsquire

    IP infested with SJW shit.

  • MoeIsLife

    Like the conquest ending in Rebirth;2? That was depressing as shit. Still salty about it.

    More Nep-Nep is always good. Maybe a new Action Game like Unleashed? Loved the “empowering” mechanic *wink wink, nudge nudge*

  • Psyramics

    You: *sees a joke post* You know what this needs? Some fucking political bullshit.

    Go grind your ax somewhere else.

  • uncle_alfred

    It also has no reused assets from older games.
    Literally shaking right here.

  • uncle_alfred

    I hope this depressing IP will turn into some edgy, campy, unintentional drivel.
    How else can we enjoy CH video games?

  • Madbrainbox

    EA,Activision,WB and Take 2 are taking turns releasing those lately.

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    Well, Cyber Dimension was a very big improvement in the series. The gameplay is good, the graphics and animations are great, and the music is awesome; plus no recycled levels from previous games. My expectations for this new Nep game are very high now

  • Baron Krause

    “New depressing IP”

    Bleh, FTP smartphone game.

  • As long as it is devloped with UE4 it should be good.

  • No need to be so triggered. Ha!

  • Maiq TheLiar

    If it’s SJW shit it’s definitely depressing lol

  • You must be new here.

  • sanic

    “throwback (or nostalgic) graphics.”

    Fuck off.

  • Exien

    1000%! sign me positiv curious for this.

    A new IP is always nice and since i liked the conquest ending I am happy they go into the more dark and serious route with it.

  • Qwaserzero

    If it has boobs it’s all good, doesn’t matter what kind of depressing vibe it has.

  • Try Operation Rainfall if you need a non-political echo chamber hugbox niche gaming site.

  • Psyramics

    Mate, I hate SJWs too, but there’s a time and place for that kind of thing, and its not “everywhere all the time”.

  • SLoWMoTIoN

    Depressing like the budget they have while making games or depressing like the fanbase?

  • alterku

    Yomawari exists.

  • MusouTensei


  • Chocolate ISISCream

    Holy shit, will it be a Dark Souls parody? I emailed them about this and they said it was a possibility. I’m all fucking in if it happens. Hopefully a PS4 exclusive as well.

  • KentDA

    A depressing IP. “It was made by EA. We’re in a contract to release it.”

    Yeah, that’d be depressing alright. Especially with the “please pay $0.99 to increase Party Limit from 1 to 2, $3.99 to increase Party Limit from 2 to 5. Note: Party Limit only lasts 30 days unless you buy the Season Pass for $9,999.99”
