Idea Factory International announced that the PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions of Super Neptunia RPG have been delayed to Summer in both North America and Europe. Both versions were previously set to release sometime this Spring.
Developed by Artisan Studios in Canada, this game brings the characters of the self-referential Neptunia series to life in a whole new way. Each character was hand-drawn by Tsunako, the artist behind the series, then animated by computer magic to create a world that’s mysteriously gone from three dimensions to two. Explore side-scrolling dungeons and fight in turn-based battles to settle the debate once and for all.
In Super Neptunia RPG, 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.
Idea Factory also revealed that the PS4 release will have two slightly modified CGs. Players don't need to worry about any other aspects of the game being removed/altered, as the gameplay for all platforms has not been changed from the original Japanese release.
Super Neptunia RPG releases this Summer on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
