Idea Factory International announced on Monday that it will release Compile Heart's Super Neptunia RPG (Yūsha Neptune: Sekai yo Uchū yo Katsumoku se yo!! Ultimate RPG Sengen!!) game for PC via Steam this summer. The Steam release will include English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and French subtitles.
Idea Factory International will also release the game for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in the West this spring. The console release will have English and Japanese audio and the option for French subtitles. It will be available physically and digitally, and will be Idea Factory International's first game in the Neptunia series to launch for Switch.
The game launched in Japan for the PlayStation 4 on December 20.
Idea Factory describes the 2D side-scrolling game:
In a world where 2D games reign supreme, an organization called Bombyx Mori forces its citizens to churn out 2D games as offerings to their leader. Those who dare to use new technologies or whose games don't meet their standards risk banishment to the soul-crushing Trial Grounds.
A girl awakens in this world with no recollection of anything beyond her name, Neptune, and soon realizes she possesses great strength. With her newfound sense of heroism and a strange book known as Histoire in hand, she sets off on a journey to see if there might be more than this two-dimensional life!
Quebec-based video game developer Artisan Studios developed the game, and is the first Western studio to develop a game in the franchise. Series artist Tsunako hand-drew the characters.
Compile Heart announced at the "Dengeki Game Fes 2019" event on Saturday that it is developing a new game in the franchise titled Game e Ninja Neptune. The company also announced at the event that it is producing a new original video anime (OVA) project for the Hyperdimension Neptunia (Chō Jigen Game Neptune The Animation) television anime series.
