On Friday, the official website for Compile Heart 's Chō Jijigen Game Neptune Re;Birth 1 (Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1) remake game for PlayStation Vita began streaming a new promotional video that compares the game to the original PlayStation 3 version. The game remakes Compile Heart's original 2010 role-playing game Chō Jigen Game Neptune (Hyperdimension Neptunia) with updated system, character models, events, maps, and voices.
The game will feature the "unit turn" battle system. In battle, players can move characters around the battlefield during a turn. Depending on weapons and skills, attack range will vary making a character's position important for battle success. On the field, characters will move faster and even jump.
Afilia Saga contributed the game's ending theme song "Mirai Botan" (Future Button) heard in the video, and Nao is performing the opening song "Miracle! Portable☆Mission," also featured in the video.
The role-playing game will ship for the PlayStation Vita in Japan on October 31. The regular version will cost 6,090 yen (about US$61), while the limited edition will cost 8,190 yen (US$82), and the downloadable version will cost 5,300 yen (US$53). The limited-edition version will bundle the "Bōken de Maru Maru Sarechau CD" drama CD and a Neptunia rubber strap. People who pre-order the game will also receive the "Megumi-tachi ga Soine Shitekurechau CD" drama CD.
