Neptune RPG Personifies Game Developers
In case you’ve missed our coverage of the upcoming JRPG Super Dimension Game Neptune, here’s a little background info. The game world is the “Video Game Industry” and, for all intents and purposes, you are a gaming console come to life as a goddess – Neptune – to fight off piracy. Along the way you’ll deal with the other goddesses, all ruling worlds named similarly to today’s current generation consoles. But, that isn’t all that is personified in this title – you’ll also meet game developers throughout your journey – four of them (so far), to be exact.As you check out this artwork below, if you are observant enough, you can see some design decisions in each character that definitely make it match the game developer they are supposed to represent. Most notably you’ll notice while examining the Nippon Ichi girl, that she has a scarf around her neck similar to one you see a Prinny wearing.
Again, I ask: Are there no male characters in this game? One would wonder since all the media we’ve seen so far features only female protagonists. Interesting thought. But hey, I’m not a hater of this type of moe, so bring it on!
