posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for the Chō Jijigen Game Neptune Re;Birth 1 (Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1) remake began streaming a new promotional video on Friday. The video includes gameplay clips, introduces characters (and enemies), and highlights new features such as new event CG and remade graphics.
The game remakes Compile Heart's original 2010 role-playing game Chō Jigen Game Neptune (Hyperdimension Neptunia). 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.
Nao is performing the opening theme song "Miracle! Portable☆Mission." Afilia Saga is performing the game's ending theme song "Mirai Botan" (Future Button). Both songs feature in the promotional 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.
Compile Heart released the Kamijigen Idol Neptune PP (Ultradimension Idol Neptune PP) game for the PlayStation Vita on June 20. A release date for Chō Megami Shinkō Noire Gekishin Black Heart game for the PlayStation Vita remains undecided. The company is also working on Re;Birth 2, the tentatively titled PS Vita remake of Chōjigen Game Neptune mk2 (Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2), and a brand new Neptunia work.
NIS America released the Hyperdimension Neptunia and Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 games in North America, and it released Kami Jigen Game Neptune V as Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory in March. The first game anthropomorphizes the game console wars as female role-playing game characters.
