Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 Set For February 2012

Role-playing fans have enjoyed a solid 2011 and next year might be even better, especially for JRPG followers.

Not only can we expect Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch early in 2012, but NIS America has just confirmed that Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 will be available in February in North America.

The original title wasn't bad; it was just flawed from a mechanical and balance standpoint. We're hoping the developers have addressed these issues in the sequel, which certainly boasts some impressive flair. Check it out:

As is typically the case in any generation, JRPGs take some time to get rolling. But White Knight Chronicles II made plenty of fans happy a few months ago, and more games in the niche genre are on the way. FFXIII-2 is a sore spot for some veteran fans but we won't mention that here.

...oh, oops.

The first game was financially successful in spite of a number of lackluster reviews. That of course makes me happy. It suggests that the loyalty of the JRPG fans is stronger than the negativity of outsiders, among other things.

Anyway, I'll definitely be picking this game up.

And let's not forget about Atelier Meruru. That's also been greenlit for localization next year.

JRPGs fans definitely seem to be getting a lot of love as of late, don't they?

I have the first one, it kind of sucks balls due to drawbacks. It's all slow and has an awful framerate, bad graphics, and terrible combat system. Atelier Totori puts it to shame, I won't bother with this unless it's very much improved.

I guess that's the difference between you and me.

As far as I myself am concerned the first game was fine and I look forward to the second one.
