Idea Factory International announced at its second press event in San Francisco on Thursday that it will release the MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies and Fairy Fencer F: Dark Advent Force video games in the West next year. The company also announced that it will release the following games on Steam: Monster Monpiece, Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed, and Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart.

MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies (Gekijigen Tag Blanc + Neptunia VS Zombie Gundan) originally shipped on the PlayStation Vita in Japan on October 15. Idea Factory International describes the game as follows:

Fight off zombie hordes with friends in the first multiplayer game in the Neptunia series, MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies for the PlayStation®Vita system and PlayStation®TV! Set in Gamicademi, Gamindustri's academy for CPUs and CPU candidates, Blanc and friends must film a movie to save their school, fend off zombies, and look cute at the same time! Play with up to 4 friends or tag team with up to 4 characters, including new characters, Tamsoft and Uzume Tennouboshi, and familiar faces, Plutia, Peashy, Dengekiko, and Famitsu to Nep up some zombies! Additionally, you can stylize characters with accessories like glasses, eye patches, and masks to make sure you look extra cute while slaying!

The company will release the game on the PS Vita and for PS TV in spring 2016.

Idea Factory International released the original Fairy Fencer F game on Steam on August 4. Before that, NIS America released Fairy Fencer F on the PlayStation 3 in North America and in Europe in September 2014. Compile Heart released Fairy Fencer F: Dark Advent Force on the PlayStation 4 in Japan on November 5.

Idea Factory International describes Fairy Fencer F: Dark Advent Force as follows:

Fairy Fencer F is reborn as Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force for the PlayStation®4 system! Continue your adventure through three new story paths: The Goddess story, the Vile God story, and the Evil God story. Play as Fang and his gang as you face off against a new, evil organization, meet new fairies and fencers, and collect the furies scattered across the world. Each path leads to a different outcome, so choose wisely. Alongside new content, you can now have up to 6 characters on the battlefield at a time! That's double the fairies and the fencing! With so many characters, players will be allowed to balance gameplay with three new difficulty settings: Easy, Normal, and Hard.

Idea Factory International will release Fairy Fencer F: Dark Advent Force on the PS4 in spring 2016.

Idea Factory International previously released Compile Heart's Monster Monpiece game for the PS Vita digitally via the PlayStation Network in North America in May 2014 and in Europe on June 2014. The company describes the game as follows:

These cards have heart! In the world of Yafaniel, humans and "monster girls" live an uneasy coexistence. You'll train as May Esperio to become a master of these monster girls in strategic, card-based battle that features light RPG elements. Throw down with the enemy using your cards' Skills and Potentials, and give their stats an extra boost with special bonuses. If you play your cards right you'll collect over 100 monster girls to fight for you! You'll get to level those ladies up with the First Crush ❤ Rub mode, which gives you a hands-on role in warming them up for battle!

The updated Steam release in spring 2016 will not have multiplayer support, but Idea Factory International said that it will include all of the original artwork featured in the Japanese release of the game. The company had censored the PS Vita release in North America and Europe.

Idea Factory International shipped Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed (Chōjigen Action Neptune U) in North America and Europe in both a physical and digital edition for the PS Vita in May. The game debuted in Japan in August 2014 as the franchise's first 3D action game.

The Steam release will be available in spring 2016.

Idea Factory International released Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart (Chō Megami Shinkō Noir Gekishin Black Heart) in North America and Europe on the PS Vita in physical and digital editions in February. The game shipped in Japan in May 2014.

Idea Factory describes the game:

Unlike previous Hyperdimension Neptunia games, Hyperdevotion Noire is not set within the world of Gamindustri, but instead within a similar, but separate, world known as "Gamarket".

The CPUs of each of the four nations are locked in heated battle against one another for dominion over this world. Just as Noire is one step away from complete domination, the CPUs are suddenly robbed of their powers by an unknown force. Now in order to save the world from destruction, the four CPUs must unite Gamarket and defeat the onslaught!

Sting, a developer known for strategy RPGs, worked on the title, making it the first SRPG in the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise.

The Steam release will be available in spring 2016.
