Happy turkey week everyone, and welcome to another edition of Go West!, your favorite [somewhat] frequent column about the latest Japan-only game releases. The holiday season is here, which means sales, lots of shopping, and no money. If you’re an import buyer however, it mostly just means no money because hahaha what are sales.

In the spirit of the season however, we can at least window shop and stare at all the stuff we can’t afford, and this week there’s a whole lot of releases. Fantastic!

So come along with em as we explore a new world filled with otome games, visual novels, RPGs, and one very big Nintendo 3DS release that might have to do with hunting monsters of some kind.

Tally ho!

Hey there buttercups, and welcome to another episode of Go West!, your not-quite-weekly column about new Japanese video game releases. I’m hoping that if I keep using out-of-fashion words to describe you all, eventually it’ll catch on. It probably won’t.

This week brings with it… not a whole actually. That said, it’s not a completely empty schedule. We have an unlikely sequel and another game in that one franchise that keeps getting new games. Not exactly drowning in riches, but hey, you take what you can get.

Tally ho!

I remain forever confused by how the Neptunia series continues to grow and branch out despite having consistent but fairly middling numbers in Japan. 

Still, I gotta hand it to Compile Heart. The series lasted a helluva lot longer than I anticipated.

The above video is the opening cinematic for the Vita game Blanc + Neptunia VS The Zombie Army. It’s an action game not entirely unlike Neptunia U before it, but with zombies and more weirdness.

Plus the opening track is called “Be My Zombie.” I can’t hate that.


Greetings, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to yet another riveting edition of Go West!, your [actually] weekly column about new Japanese games, packed schedules, and faking illness.

This is a big one. There have been a few massive weeks for GW! since its return from the dead, but on a personal level, this one is massive.

Why, you ask? The sequel to my 2012 GOTY hits.

Let’s rock.

Pages from Dengeki’s coverage of Neptunia V-II, introducing the various little sisters and their goddess forms. 

There’s also gonna be a Spelunker world in the game. \o/

Look, a new Neptunia V-II trailer

You know, as little experience as I have with this franchise, I can’t help but respect Compile Heart for really digging their feet in. As far as I can tell, the Neptunia series is hardly a huge seller, even amongst the otaku niche in Japan, yet here we are with a new PS4 release.

I have it on reasonable authority that this series only got better and more playable with each iteration, so I imagine fans of the series will find a lot to like here.

And hey, at least the special attacks look kinda cool.

There’s a new Neptunia game coming out for the PS4.

Neptunia V-II.

It’s a Neptunia game.

Here’s the opening.

It’s an opening for a Neptunia game.


I’m always left with so very little to say when it comes to Neptunia games. I have close to zero experience with them, and I’m generally not all that interested to begin with.

They keep getting made though, which means I keep having to write about them. Huzzah!

Last month’s final issue of Dengeki had a nice six page feature on Neptunia Victory II, showing off the slightly older/more mature cast. Are they more mature looking? I can’t tell.

Again, it looks like a Neptunia game. So that’s cool I guess?


This week’s Famitsu featured a cover story celebrating the last 20 years of Playstation. As always, they had developers and artists come in to do tribute illustrations. I’ve divided them into three separate posts.

This set is one through six, and below are the artists for each entry.

1.Daisuke Ishiwatari (Guilty Gear creator)

2. Tsunako (Idea Factory)

3. Masaharu Yamazaki (Photo Kano)

4. Shinya Edaki (Capcom)

5. The Biohazard Revelations 2 development team (lol really Capcom?)

6. Tomomi Kobayashi (Saga series illustrator)

Parts 2 & 3 coming right up.

It’s, like, so LEGENDARY!

At least that’s what Estelle seems to think.

Here are some fresh English language Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart screenshots courtesy of Idea Factory. No in-battle stuff, so you’ll have to make due with some character portraits of your favorite (?) Neptunia characters for now.

So uh… yeah. Here you go.
