Neptune is the protagonist of Hyperdimension Neptunia
. She is named after the aborted Sega Neptune game console. The developer Compile Heart
licensed the name from Sega
, making Neptune the only console-tan in the game to have some sort of manufacturer approval.
Playing on the fact that Sega is absent from the current generation of consoles, Neptune isn't a goddess like the rest of the console-tans at the start of the game but first appears as a girl that has lost her memory.
The Sega Neptune was a proposed console that combined the Sega Genesis
with its add-on, the 32X
, making the two devices a single unit. However, the project was scrapped after it was determined that there wasn't a market for the device. The Neptune never moved beyond the prototype hardware stage.
