Following the release of Hyperdimension Neptunia Re; Birth1, Idea Factory International has announced that they plan to bring Hyperdimension Neptunia Re; Birth2: Sisters Generation for PS Vita to both Europe and North America in early 2015.
Like Re; Birth1, Re; Birth 2 will also see some additions and general improvements.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re; Birth2 Story
20XX -Gamindustri faces a dire crisis. Shops are boarded up, creators are overworked and starving, and death looms over all Gamindustrimen. But the CPUs refuse to let this be game over for their world! Gamindustri had severed its ties to the chaotic Lawless Realm long ago, and yet…Ever since the advent of ASIC -the Arfoire Syndicate of International Crime -morality has all but vanished. As much as 80 percent of all students are rumored to worship a being known as Arfoire. Parents, despite knowing it to be a poor deity to worship, have gone ahead and allowed their children to do so. Even the governing bodies of the world have turned a blind eye to it, rather than crush the crisis in its infancy. Well, basically, Gamindustri was pretty messed up, you guys. Ahem. Thus did Gamindustri fall into complete and utter disarray. Those who tire of living in this corrupt world are sent to wander the Gamindustri Graveyard, forever lost.
More is better! A player can have up to 4 characters on the battlefield, and 4 more characters as supporters that can jump into the battle if their partner on the field is weakened.
