Straight out of TGS 2012 comes some great news for anyone who is a fan of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. During the event, NIS America announced that they are going to bring Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory (Titled Neptunia V in Japan) to North America in 2013. I think it was pretty obvious that it would happen, but it’s nice to hear it straight out of NIS America’s mouth.
So far, we know that the story is going to be pretty interesting. Neptune will be your main character as you find yourself back in the 80′s (of Gameindustri), and you have to meet new and old friends to try and accomplish some goal. This will give players a more indepth look at the history of Gameindustri. As far as new features, they are as follows…
- Dynamic Combat: Freely move units in battle to tackle foes! Set up your own combos, fill up the EXE Drive gauge, and then deal “massive damage” with your finishing attacks!
- Scout System: Send out scouts to explore and gather information on dungeons! Level them up so they can find things you may have missed on your adventure!
- Flag System: Break or repair “flag” triggers in dungeons to activate different events when your scouts return from exploring! This can change enemy spawns or reveal new items!
- Burn Game Discs: Obtain blank discs and burn different types of data onto them to access hidden potentials! With the right combinations, you may even make a Godly Game! It’s your chance to craft your own AAA title for Neptune and friends to equip!
I don’t know about you, but I am excited. Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory will hit North American and European markets in the Spring of 2013 exclusively on the PS3.
