Hyperdimension Neptunia: “No Oppai for the Foreigners!”

hyperdimension-neptunia-001

Console war moe anthropomorphisation RPG Hyperdimension Neptunia‘s English language release is apparently considered a little too raunchy for corpulent Walmart shoppers, as even some tame cleavage exposure finds itself expunged from the cover.

The Japanese release:

hyperdimension-neptunia-002

The western release:

hyperdimension-neptunia-003

The cover may have changed for the worse, but Japanese gamers seem quite envious of the plethora of extras available with the premium edition of the game:

hyperdimension-neptunia-004

hyperdimension-neptunia-005

The game is due February 9th in the US and march 4th in Europe.

The game itself is something of an odd choice for localisation – its characters and settings are all parodies of the war between the current generation of consoles, and they draw heavily upon the intensely hostile console rivalries fought out on 2ch’s gaming hardware boards, none of which is likely to be understood by most Japanese, let alone an international audience…

However, the game was nonetheless well received in Japan and boasts gorgeous art and good graphics – it may be necessary to heed the old adage about not judging a book by its cover.
