The news that Hyperdimension fans have been waiting for has arrived; the previously released japanese PS4 Game Hyperdimension Neptunia VII will be getting released within the UK and Europe next year, however it will be known as Megadimension Neptunia VII.
This first PS4 instalment into the Neptunia franchise will feature new characters, three new worlds to explore and three new stories to experience; but thats not all as a brand new HDD Transformation will be accessible alongside an upgraded battle system and a new dungeon minigame. Basically Megadimension Neptunia isn’t just a quick new chapter in the franchise; it’s a new addition with plenty of new gameplay modes to explore.
But what exactly can we expect from the story? Well Idea Factory International have provided a rough synopsis of what to expect (that is unless you’ve already played the Japanese version):
G.C. 2015 – Gamindustri has entered a precarious season known as the CPU Shift Period. During this time of social unrest, deprecating rumors about the CPUs have begun to saturate Gamindustri. Neptune and the others worry the citizens will soon call for new leaders to replace the them and that their rule will end.
In these critical moments for Planeptune, Neptune and Nepgear mysteriously disappear. Their destination: a divergent world, nearing its catastrophic end, called the Zero Dimension. They encounter the last remaining CPU of this world, Uzume Tennouboshi, who is desperately waging a lonely battle against a colossal evil known as the Dark CPU.
Will Neptune and Nepgear be able to work together with Uzume in order to save Zero Dimension from tragedy? So begins a new adventure for Neptune…
Megadimension Neptunia VII will be released ‘exclusively’ onto the PS4 early next year; and more importantly it will receive both a digital download and retail release.
