Neptunia Shooter Announced for Steam Release Later This Year

Originally teased as an ‘April Fools Joke’ publisher Idea Factory International have announced that Neptunia Shooter, which is a Shoot-em-up (or shump if you prefer), featuring popular Hyperdimension Neptunia characters and enemies.

In this case players will control the various goddesses, such as Neptunie and Noire, in side-scrolling shoot-em-up action presented in a retro-style 2D experience. In addition to this ‘old-skool’ arcade experience players will be able to compete against each other online by sharing high-scores in the online leaderboard.

About the Game:
Armed to the teeth, players begin as Neptune in an unworldly 8-bit space dimension ravaged by creatures who burst endless waves of bullets. Shoot, dodge, and defeat the boss in six unique bullet-hell worlds. After defeating each boss, they will join your mission, allowing you to switch characters and utilize their unique shooting abilities. Neptune and her friends must traverse through this shmup space dimension and defeat the last boss once and for all!

Key Features:

  • Shmup It Up – Progress through six 8-bit inspired shoot ‘em up stages as enemy dogoos spew out an array of bullet-hell attacks in this 8-bit dimension!
  • Who Will Claim Victory? – With Steam online leaderboards, bullet-hell fans everywhere can now stake the claim as the best Neptunia Shooter player in this dimension! Challenge your friends and see who gets the higher score in six different levels!
  • Choose Your Ammunition! – Start your shmup adventure as the self-proclaimed protagonist, Neptune! At the end of each level, you face off a Goddess boss, who joins your party after defeating them. Switch between five possible characters on-the-fly and utilize each of their unique bullet-hell patterns to defeat the evil space dogoos and the final boss!
  • Broadcast Your Skills – With the Steam Broadcasting feature, you can show off your shoot ‘em up and dodging skills to the whole world!

Neptunia Shooter will be released later this year with further release details to be announced at a later date.
