Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 heading west this summer
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1is a remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia, which was originally released for the PlayStation 3 in 2011. While the core story of the remake will be the same as the original release there will be new conversations between characters and a brand new ending. The game will also feature an overhauled battle system; the new system will be similar to the battle system used in the last Hyperdimension Neptunia title, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory.
For those unfamiliar with the Hyperdimension Neptunia, it is an RPG series that takes the idea of the console war and brings it alive with four goddesses known as CPUs protecting the world of Gamindustri. Each of the four main characters represents a console manufacturer – Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony and Sega (Sega no longer develop consoles).
Gamindustri: One of many parallel universes protected by four goddesses known as CPUs. Long ago, these four CPUs engaged in a war for supremacy known as the War of the Guardians. However, this war weakened their protective hold on the world inhabited by their people, and in turn it was flooded by monsters under the influence of an individual known as Arfoire. During the War of the Guardians, one of the CPUs—Neptune—was defeated by the others and hurled down to the world’s surface from the heavens. The drop caused Neptune to lose her memories, as learned by Compa and IF, who happen upon the fallen girl. A mysterious book containing knowledge of all Gamindustri’s history suddenly speaks out to Neptune, Compa, and IF. With the assistance of this sentient book, the trio embark on an extraordinary journey across four different nations on a quest to save the entire world!”
