Neptunia VIIR Is Going To Nep You All Up On PS4 / PS4 Pro Today

Posted on May 8, 2018 by Rae Michelle Richards

Idea Factory International and Compile Heart revisit Neptunia’s first 8th generation adventure, 2016’s Hyperdiemnsion Neptunia VII, with an enhanced remake, Hyperdimension Neptunia VIIR on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. An enhanced remake of the 2016, VIIR features a brand new battle system that returns some of the staples introduced way back in Hyper Dimenson Neptunia MK II, as well as sporting a brand new VR enhanced extra mode.

Small VR inspired vignettes that take place in “the player’s room” have well.. you, the player, interact with various Neptunia characters in small scripted sequences that take place outside of the main narrative. Without getting way too meta, players can customize their room with different accessories and cosmetic items to try and win the favor of their series favorites.

In terms of the story Neptunia VIIR retells the same narrative as the 2016 release, so if you’d like a quite distilled version of that tale, I’d highly recommend my review of the 2016 original on the PlayStation 4.

As the game’s title implies, Neptunia VIIR also brings support for the PlayStation VR headset during the “player room” sections. IFI International provided me with a review code ahead of the game’s release and my full impressions of this enhanced remake sometime next week.

Until then here is a bullet point list of new features provided by IFI PR and the latest batch of screenshots.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Vs. SEGA Hardware Girls Detailed

Posted on October 3, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

The world of Hyperdimension Neptunia is already a pretty bizarre place – consoles have been personified as videogame heroines, the world uses ‘credits’ as their currency and enemies resemble the ghosts from Pac-Man – but things are about to get even more rad with the inclusion of the ‘SEGA Hardware Girls’.

In the upcoming game Hyperdimension Neptunia Vs. SEGA Hardware Girls Nep-Nep & CO. will take on personifications of classic SEGA hardware from the past thirty years. If you ever wanted to know what an officially sanctioned Dreamcast-tan looked like, you no longer have to wonder. The folks over at Idea Factory Japan and Compile Heart have revealed a bunch of new details for the upcoming action RPG.

Here’s a brief rundown:

  • Attack order returns from the previous games
  • A new “Fever Gem” gauge has been added. When you attack the percentage on this meter increases and will eventually provide you with a Rainbow Gem.
  • While in “Fever Mode” all of your party members gain 10% to their stats, enemies are unable to take their turns – meaning you can beat the hell out of the, you can also perform your EXE special attacks.

Also included with the combat system details were a number of new screenshots. It should be obvious who the Dreamcast is – she’s literally wearing a Dreamcast controller as a tiara! I also want Game Gear’s multi-colored hair aesthetic.. Like GOD DAMN!

Hypedimension Neptunia X SEGA Hardware Girls will be released in Japan on November 26th for the PlayStation Vita. No word on an international release.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory Slotted For March Release

Posted on December 11, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

N.I.S America has announced that the third entry in the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory will be released in North America in March of 2013. The game, like the other two main entries in the franchise, will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. No word on an exact release date but they did release several screenshots and a trailer to promote the game.

I’m.. going to try and contain myself like the fangirl that I am and tell you that the Neptunia series is some of the cheekiest and most hilarious satire of the console wars in sometime. Sure, the first game had some issues with grinding and dry combat mechanics, and it got some negative press for both of those, but the sequels are miles better and Victory includes some pretty neat additions.
