'Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory', a PS3-exclusive title.
NIS America has revealed plans to publish the third installment of the fan-favorite PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system exclusive series, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, in spring 2013 for both the North American and European markets. Neptune reprises her role as the self-aware main character and meets characters new and old after getting transported back to the '80s version of Gamindustri.
According to NIS, players can expect a refined and even faster-paced battle system in this next title and fans of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series will be able to immerse themselves even deeper into the mythos of Gamindustri.
In addition to the release of the PS3 game, NIS is releasing the Neptunia iPhone app worldwide. With the app, users can take pictures with Neptune and Noire, as well as wake up to their voices, and other exciting features
The game takes place several years after pr eventing Arfoire's revival, and Gamindustri has remained at peace without any major issues. The CPUs and their younger sisters have been enjoying their quiet lives for a while... Then one day, the CPU of Planeptune-Neptune-is sent to another dimension. This new dimension feels very much like her own...except it has only progressed to the Gamindustri of the 1980s. In this dimension, a group of villains calling themselves the "Seven Sages" are trying to create a world without CPUs. With help from her new friends, including that dimension's CPU of Planeptune-Plutia-Neptune begins her quest to protect a totally different Gamindustri in her brand-new adventure
Hyperdimensional Neptunia Victory will feature dynamic combat, allowing players to freely move units in battle to tackle foes, setting up combos and dealing massive damage with finishing attacks. Players will also have a scout system at their disposal, allowing for scouts to be sent out to explore and gather information on the game's various dungeons. The game will also feature a flag system. This allows for "flag" triggers in dungeons to be repaired, this activating different events when scouts return from exploring. Finally players can obtain blank discs and burn different types of data onto them to access hidden potentials. It's the player's chance to craft a semi-custom "AAA" title for Neptune and friends to equip.
Developed by Idea Factory, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory is scheduled for release in Spring of 2013.
