Idea Factory Announces Neptunia X Sega Hard Girls Crossover

Earlier this week at the Dengeki Game Spring Festival 2015, Idea Factory announced that their Hyper Dimension Neptunia franchise would be featured in a crossover with Sega’s own Hardware Girl line in an upcoming game for the Playstation Vita. The crossover will likely play on the fact that both series feature a similar core premises involving anthropomorphic versions of various game consoles re-imagined as cute girls. What does differ between the two — lies in the sort of consoles each series features. With Neptunia playing with thinly veiled parodies of the 7th generation game consoles, and Hardware Girls on the Sega consoles — released between the late 80s and early 2000s.


Hyper Dimesion Neptunia since its inception in 2010, evolved into a small-scale media empire, spawning countless video games, anime, manga, and merchandise. The latest of which, Hyper Devotional Noir: Goddess Black Heart was released for the Vita last month. Meanwhile, Sega Hardware Girls is a fairly new property—having only been introduced in Japan in 2013 via a series of light novels. More recently, three of the primary protagonists from these novels: Mega Drive, Dreamcast, and Saturn, have appeared in a 3D CG anime titled Hi-sCoool! SeHa Girls that ran for 13 episodes late last year.

No further details were given as of writing regarding what genre the game will cover, or what characters will be featured in the crossover but some fans have speculated that it maybe a fight gaming of some sort.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
