In an unexpected union, the developers of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series have joined forces with the Final Fantasy veterans Nobuo Uematsu and Yoshitaka Amano to make a brand new RPG.
On April 22, the developer Compile Heart announced that they are creating a new brand called Galapagos RPG, which they claim is targeted towards “specific Japanese customers”.
Although we’re not sure what they mean by that, they announced three days later that the Neptunia Team (the team that makes the Hyperdimension Neptunia games) is collaborating with the artist Yoshitaka Amano, who has worked on the Final Fantasy series since the first FF game, and Nobuo Uematsu, one of the most famous composers in the video game industry who has also made music for the FF series since the beginning and has his own band called Earthbound Papas.
We don’t know anything else about the game, but Compile Heart also aired this teaser video:
As the video says, the first game from Galapagos RPG will be officially revealed in the issue of Famitsu Weekly released on May 9, so we’ll find out more about it then.
What do you think this game could be? And how in the world can Neptunia Team juggle this game along with three other PS Vita games coming this year?
Before Compile Hearts revealed this teaser, they also released this video celebrating the birth of Galapagos RPG. It doesn’t actually have any information, but it does have a peppy march tune.
