Neptunia: Sisters Vs Sisters Announced for Western PlayStation and Windows PC Release in Early 2023

The next entry into the Hyperdimension Neptunia will soon be making it’s way to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Windows PC; as Idea Factory International have confirmed that Neptunia: Sisters Vs Sisters will be making its western debut in early 2023.

Originally released on 21st April 2022 in Japan for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 this latest entry sees Nepgear, Uni, Ram and Rom take centre stage as they battle a new enemy known as Trendi Phenomenon. Naturally fan-favourites Neptune, Noire, Blanc and Vert will be in the game but (for once) the story will look to bring the CPU Candidates into the spotlight.

Synopsis:
While the Goddesses were out responding to a distress call from the faraway PC Continent, Nepgear and the other Candidates were sent to investigate an abandoned laboratory.

It was there that they found the “Ashen Goddess”, who trapped them in a deep sleep capsule. By the time they awoke, 2 years had already passed. The latest smartphone, the “rPhone”, dominates the market.

Neptune has been missing since her mission to the PC Continent, and in the absence of its Goddess and Candidate, Planeptune was ravaged by a strange new phenomenon, the Trendi Outbreaks.

Suddenly finding herself robbed of home and family, Nepgear falls into a deep depression. This is a story about finding hope in the midst of despair, and the rebirth of a Goddess in the wake of destruction.
