Nendoroid Generation for PSP

This is apparently quite a few months old and it isn’t shocking I’m not up to date on such things. I only found out because I was looking for information on the Black Rock Shooter game which is my key to utilizing the PSP I bought and only played five times and now want to buy a stupid expensive Penguindrum case for.

Nendoroid Generation/ねんどろいど じぇねれ~しょん is a PSP game to be released on February 23rd. It is a colaboration between Good Smile Company and Namco Bandai to celebrate GSC’s ten year anniversary. Something like that. The game feautures various girls in Nendoroid form and several different modes of play. There is a fighting game aspect which utilizes characters like Nanoha, Reimu, Saber and Black Rock Shooter. There’s also a dance mode where you can dress the girls up in different costumes and have them preform little dances. There’s also a mode where you interact with the girl directly and pet them or talk to them, stuff like that.

Characters confirmed are:

Fate/Stay Night

  • Saber
  • Rin Tohsaka
  • Rider
  •  Illyasviel von Einzbern

Black Rock Shooter

  • Black Rock Shooter
  • Dead Master
  • Black Gold Saw
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu
  • Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Mikuru Asahina
  • Yuki Nagato
Touhou
  • Reimu Hakurei
  • Marisa Kirisame
  • Remilia Scarlet

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha

  • Nanoha Takamachi
  • Fate Testarossa
  • Arf

Steins;Gate

  • Kurisu Makise
  • Mayuri Shiina
Zero no Tsukaima
  • Louise Vallière
My intial theory was that all of the series’ included had prominent games on the PSP already. That isn’t true for Touhou or Zero no Tsukaima, though. However, both Louise and Reimu and the gang were all added later on and initial screens and the trailer didn’t feature them at all. There’s also a mystery GSC mascot type character as well.
Reimu and co. being in the same game as Black Rock and co. (as well as Dead Master’s adorable little dance that made me HNNNGGGH) made this pretty much an insta-buy for me. The chances of this being released over here are zilch, expecially with Vita coming out around the same time. I was really forced to notice this price difference in PSP games though. Why are japanese PSP games so much more expensive than ones released in NA? It’s not even just import sites where I could see them jacking the price up. On Amazon, the price is still around 8000 yen. I haven’t looked at console games though. Are those even more expensive? That would explain a lot about what I’ve read regarding sales over there, then.
