Super Neptunia RPG Delayed Until Spring 2019

Originally announced for a 2018 release the new ‘2.5D’ RPG installment into the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise, known as Super Neptunia RPG, will now be released during Spring 2019. Its unclear why the release date has been pushed back, most likely due to additional development times being required, BUT Idea Factory International have released a new video; this time the opening animation for the game.

The side-scrolling RPG will be available physically and digitally for the PlayStation 4, and for the first time ever, the Nintendo Switch; the game will also contain both English and Japanese voiceover options as well as English and French subtitle options.

Story:  In a world where 2D games reign supreme, an organization called Bombyx Mori forces its citizens to churn out 2D games as offerings to their leader. Those who dare to use new technologies or whose games don’t meet their standards risk banishment to the soul-crushing Trial Grounds.
A girl awakens in this world with no recollection of anything beyond her name, Neptune, and soon realizes she possesses great strength. With her newfound sense of heroism and a strange book known as Histoire in hand, she sets off on a journey to see if there might be more than this two-dimensional life.
