Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II Details Emerge
In a 4Gamer.net interview with Neptunia producer Naoko Mizuno and supervisor Norihisa Kochiwa (translated by Gematsu), we were given new details on the upcoming PS4 title, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II (Hyperdimension Neptunia VII).
Hyperdimension Neptunia VII is the next numbered title in the series. The game will depict three different stories in three separate dimensions. Originally, studio Compile Heart thought of releasing each story as separate titles, and had developed different logos for each. The titles are:
- Zero Dimension Game Neptune Z: Ragnarok of The Abyss Goddess
- Hyperdimension Neptunia G: Gold Vanguard Gamindustri Existance of Change
- Heart Dimension Game Neptune H: Trilogy Final Into the Legend
In Zero Dimension, the story will focus on a new character named Uzume Tennohboshi, "The Abyss Goddess," who will be a key part of each dimension's story. Neptune and her younger sister Nepgear find themselves blown into the world of the Zero Dimension, where they come across Uzume and an older-looking Neptune. This Neptune is supposedly a different person than the regular Neptune.
The battle system for Neptunia VII will be entirely new. The system will be similar to the original system, though the structure of combos has changed. Character positioning is also important, so you have to play to your advantage in enclosing the enemy. Also, each goddess will have a new "Next Form."
Compile Heart says they want to expand development of major titles to the PS4 from here on out. Also, the studio is looking to make Neptunia games in different genres. We have already seen two: Hyperdimension Neptunia U (action), and Hyperdevotion Noire (strategy RPG). The studio has not given any specifics, but they do want to try various things with the franchise.
There is no release date set as of now.
