Super Neptunia RPG Confirmed for Summer Release; PlayStation 4 Version Contains Two Modified CG Scenes

Idea Factory Internaitonal have announced that Super Neptunia RPG will be released during Summer across the three previously announced platforms, in this case PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC.

Originally Super Neptunia RPG was scheduled for a later 2018/early 2019 release on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, but during the past few weeks the game has now been confirmed for a digital Windows PC release via Steam. This latest announcement confirms that all versions of the game will be released during Summer 2019 – with further details to be announced at a later date.

Surprisingly that’s not the only news either; as Idea Factory International also confirmed that the PlayStation 4 version will feature two slightly modified CGs compared to its original Japanese release. It was also confirmed that the Nintendo Switch and Windows PC versions will retain the original CG scenes and that Gameplay for all platforms has not been changed from the original Japanese release. In other words; the PlayStation 4 version has been changed slightly to comply with regulations – while the Nintendo Switch and Windows PC versions will be the ‘exact same’ as the Japanese release.

Unlike previous Neptunia games each character was hand-drawn by Tsunako, the artist behind the series, then animated by computer magic to create a world that’s mysteriously gone from three dimensions to two. Players will explore dungeons, defeat monsters and embark in quests all through the power of 2D and 2.5D styled gameplay.

Key Features:

  • New Me in 2D – Your favorite Goddesses jump from three dimensions to two! Artisan Studios and Compile Heart proudly present new, vibrant backgrounds and newly developed 2D animations hand drawn in this action-inspired side-scrolling RPG!

  • Where You Lead, I Will Follow – With four Goddesses to rotate on-the fly during battle, players can change their formation type and unleash devasting attack combos. Depending on which Goddess is leading the pack, players can strategize attacks from four different formations: Strike, Magic, Support and Heal!
