Video game developer Compile Heart began streaming the latest promotional video for its Chō Megami Shinkō Noire: Gekishin Black Heart video game for PlayStation Vita on Friday. In the video, the mini characters compete in tactical battles on the simulation role-playing game's various maps. The video also highlights the Lily Boost power-up system and characters' special moves.
Noire/Black Heart, the most popular Neptunia character (played by Asami Imai), "finally" takes the center stage in this game. Instead of the world of Gamindustri, the game features a different world (Game Shijō, or roughly translated, "Gamemarket") for new adventures.
Noire can make 18 friends in the game, including new characters. The goddesses Neptune/Purple Heart (Rie Tanaka), Blanc/White Heart (Kana Asumi), and Vert/Green Heart (Rina Satou) also return.
Sting, a developer known for SRPGs, is working on the title. The staff includes Compile Heart series producer Naoko Mizuno, Compile Heart producer Shirō Higa, and Sting development producer Hikaru Yasui.
The game will ship in Japan on May 29. The limited edition will include a Noire figure, and a drama CD. People who pre-order will receive a visual book with designs. Different retailers will offer unique bonus goods as well.
