The next entry in the Neptunia series, MEGADIMENSION NEPTUNIA VII, is currently set to release on February 2nd 2016 in North America, and February 12th in Europe. This is the first of the Neptunia series to be exclusive for the PS4, as previous titles had been released on PS3 and VITA in the past (with PC Ports at a later date.)
For those unaware of the series, The Neptunia Series (which includes Hyperdimension Neptunia, Hyperdevotion Noire, and Hyperdimension Neptunia Action U) is a parody of the Video Game Industry, taking place in a world called Gamindustri which is ruled by 4 goddess representing the different consoles.
Megadimension Neptunia follows a paradigm shift in Gamindustri which Neptune and her friends worry that their rule as CPU Goddess will end. During this time Neptune and Nep-Gear mysteriously disappear into a new dimension called the Zero Dimension, which is nearing its catastrophic end.
Several new features for the game has been announced including a new battle system in which “Characters can link up for stronger attacks, “Parts Break” allows you to split enemies into pieces to lower their stats and disable special attacks, and “Giant Battles” impose limits that will challenge the strategist in you!” The game will also feature new NEXT Transformations for the CPUs, 3 different worlds with their own story, new characters and a “Spelunker” like minigame where you’ll be able to collect special items and equipment for beating the dungeon in the time limit.
The game will be available for both a Physical and Digital release, and will launch along side a free Japanese Voice Over DLC on release date.
