We want to thank you guys for all the awesome submissions to our holiday contests! We present the winners below, and if you’d like to see all of the entries, please check out the galleries on our Facebook page!
Try the drink that combines the tastes of the 4 CPU Goddesses of Gamindustri for your festive holidays! The main piece, the hot chocolate, is made out of dark chocolate, what the lovely Noire adores, flavored by the quiet Blanc’s love of tangerines (actually just orange zest), and mixed with the generous Vert’s specially made peppermint extract that she uses in her own tea. Finally, enjoy the sweet Neptune’s bubbly berrylicious blueberry sauce (that she claims she made herself) that tops this festive drink. All mixed together, it creates a plethora of flavours that complement each other in a special way! You’re sure to feel your shares refresh when drinking this!
Makes 4 Servings
• 3 cups 2 % milk
• 1 cup light cream
• 1 cup semisweet dark chocolate chips
• ½ tbsp. Peppermint extract
• 2 tbsp. sugar
• 1 large orange
• Blueberry syrup / sauce
• Crushed dark chocolate chips
• Crushed Candy Canes
• Whipped Cream
1. Begin by pouring the milk and cream into a heavy large saucepan.
2. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the skin (the orange part of the skin only) from the orange. Add the peels to milk (reserve the orange for another use or eat it).
3. Bring the milk mixture to simmer over medium-high heat, then remove it from the heat. Cover the saucepan and let the mixture steep for 30 minutes.
4. Strain the milk mixture into a large bowl. Rinse the saucepan and return the mixture to the same saucepan.
5. Warm milk mixture again over a medium-low heat to a simmer. Add the chocolate chips and the peppermint extract. Whisk the chocolate until it has melted and mixed. Add the sugar and whisk until it has dissolved. Continue to the warm chocolate mixture, continuously whisking until it becomes thick, usually about 5-7 minutes.
6. Pour the hot chocolate into cups. Top the hot chocolate with whipped cream, blueberry sauce, crushed candy cane, and crushed dark chocolate chips and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Despite the name, my drink isn’t made of shaved ice, but rather delicious ice cream! The perfect cap to any holiday meal!
2oz gingerbread syrup
10oz vanilla ice cream
Blend above ingredients for one minute or until mixture is well blended and creamy
Rim glass with gingerbread syrup, then coat with graham cracker crumbs
Top with whip cream and a gingerbread man
1 tbs Peppermint Syrup
1 shot of espresso
1/2 cup of frothed 2% milk
1/2 tsp of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 crushed mini candy cane
2 mint leaves
Please mix well to melt the chocolate. (^_^;)
Hope everyone enjoys!

We are happy to inform fans in Europe that there is a new version of Monster Monpiece now up on the European PS Store. The new version of the game can be downloaded free of charge if you already purchased the game the first time around.

Thank you very much,
Idea Factory International

Hello European Neptunia fans,
We apologize for not being able to bring Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 to the European market in its physical format. We are a small independent subsidiary company that was established just a little over six months ago. That said, our business is still unstable, and we are still working to establish our business foundation in the European market in order to be able to publish and distribute our titles to European fans.
It was a difficult decision to go digital-only for the European region because we understand that many fans of the Neptunia series live there. As we become more stable, we promise to release Idea Factory titles in their physical formats in both the North American and European markets.
Again, we apologize that our fans have to experience unnecessary frustration. We do promise that we are working towards bringing physical releases of future titles to European stores. Our steps may be small, but we are constantly moving forward, and each small success will help us leap towards more games and better products for everyone.
