New Game Plus Expo 2020: Idea Factory International Announcement Summary

Although the Nintendo eShop listing for Megadimension Neptunia VII went live earlier today, as reported here, we did not see any mention of it during the New Game Plus Expo 2020 showcase, however publisher Idea Factory International did showcase some brand new trailers of Death End Re;Quest 2 and Neptunia Virtual Stars; with Death End Re;Quest 2 even getting announced for an August 2020 release date.

A breakdown of the two games, and the new trailers, can be found below:

Death End Re;Quest 2 [PlayStation 4, STEAM – August 2020]:
Mai Toyama seeks an escape from her traumatic past. She becomes enrolled at Wordsworth, an all-girl’s dormitory situated in the small, mountainous town known as Le Choara where it was rumored that her sister, Sanae, was last seen. Hopeful, Mai seeks to find her kin, but she soon finds terrifying inhabitants which lurk throughout the town after dark. At night, Le Choara’s streets are filled with Shadow Matter—a horrific group of menacing creatures. Around every cobblestone corner, Mai discovers that her hope of finding her sister lies beneath the long-buried secrets which haunt Le Choara.

A release date of 25th August 2020 for both PlayStation 4 and STEAM versions of the game were announced alongside a Limited Edition version for the PlayStation 4, of which will be exclusive to the Iffy Online Store; but European release details have not yet been announced. The STEAM release will be global, and we suspect the European PlayStation 4 version of the game will be released a few days later.

Neptunia Virtual Star [PlayStation 4 – 2021]:
Fair, the Virtual Goddess and leader of Planet EMO, sent out a distress signal to multiple dimensions in the hopes of a miracle. Two groups received the signal – the rising VTuber stars, Mi and Yu, members of MEWTRAL, as well as the Goddesses of Gamindustri: Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert. Both parties, now entering unfamiliar terrain, decide to team up to duke it out against Anti!  Can they band together and save planet EMO from complete destruction?

Further information surrounding both of these titles will be announced through the relevant Idea Factory channels once available. At the moment the DEATH END RE;QUEST 2 release date (which is 25th August 2020) and limited edition availability have only been confirmed for North America. European release details have yet to be announced.
