    Hyperdimension Neptunia's Premium Edition has been announced by NIS.

    Like previous Premium Edition from NIS it includes

    Collector's packaging and an illustrated art book complete with exclusive drawings and sketches from the game's character artists. This includes the - ahem - more revealing Japanese box art

    This is currently only a NTSC and PS3 only release but I hoping it will come to PAL aswell. However going by NIS Track record it's not likely as the publisher for Europe is Tecmo Koei.

    Also it's not known yet if this is a pre-order incentive, or simply a seperate release from the normal version. The game is set for release in FEB.

    Please note that this should not be confused with the Korean limited edition which is far superior:

    Includes a beach towel, sound track, art book and cards.

    It's not a pre-order incentive, but a premium set. It would we wise to pre-order, though, as I have.

  3. Icek:
    Too bad that US gets poorer edition from Korean. The Korean one looks damn good.

  4. Mandingo:
    Yeah, that beach towel is cool.

  5. scourdx:
    That is a big difference. Usually US gamers pay more and get less content.

  6. Mandingo:
    Yeah, this is similar to the Rorona special edition, where it came in a cardboard box and artbook. Not too impressive, but they won't charge anything over the usual new game price, which is $60 US.

  7. Mandingo:
    Sorry for double post, but there is more information coming in about this premium edition:

    You’ll be glad to know that Neptunia bonuses aren’t limited to the NISA store or to Gamestop.

    Every copy of the initial shipment of Neptunia in the U.S., regardless of where you purchase it, will be the game’s premium edition, and come with the artbook. NIS America warned us that these would be limited, so anyone hoping for the art book would likely want to pre-order to be on the safe side.

    There’s an added bonus for those that buy the game from the NISA Online Store. If you order the game from the NISA store, you also get a set of Neptunia playing cards in addition to the game and art book.

    Unfortunately, these bonuses are limited to the U.S. NISA say pre-orders for Neptunia will be going up “soon,” with the game slated for release in February.

    I wonder if the playing card bonus at the NISA store will be a full or partial deck.

    I just checked and the NIS America online store is no longer taking pre-orders

  9. Mandingo:
    If I'm not mistaken, I believe Hyperdimension Neptunia is exclusive for the PS3 platform and not the Xbox 360.
    (the OP has it listed for xbox 360)

  11. Mandingo:
    Apparently, weather issues have caused shipment delays. Amazon.com now has shipping estimates for Hyperdimension Neptunia at 3-5 weeks.

  12. twistedsymphony:
    I was just at my local Gamestop to pickup MVC3 expecting to pick this up as well, it wont be in until tomorrow apparently.

  13. Mandingo:
    Yep, good news; it was looking like a long delay initially, but NISA recently sent out this e-mail:

    The box is slightly smaller than the Atelier Rorona one.

  16. twistedsymphony:
    photos have been added.

    one peculiar thing I wanted to note, the game case inside the box, is the standard edition but it came UNSEALED despite the fact that the large outer box was sealed, I thought this was worth noting as it's fairly uncommon.

  17. Mandingo:
    but it came UNSEALED despite the fact that the large outer box was sealed
    I noticed that, as well. It is odd, and I don't really know how to feel about it.
