JRPG remake Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2: Sisters Generation is a few months away from release in North America. Until then, developer Idea Factory has released the game’s opening cinematic to help entice fans while they wait, along with some screenshots.
The opening cinematic gives players a glimpse at the overall art style for the game, set to some catchy J-pop. The screenshots, seen below, give a better idea for actual gameplay and in-game graphics. The remake retains the original PlayStation 3 version’s fidelity, and will boast an improved frame rate, reworked voice acting, and a larger cast of characters.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2: Sisters Generation is the second title in the Re;Birth series, and is a remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 for the PS3. Sisters Generation will feature a new story, new characters, and a revamped battle system. While there are new characters, some characters from the original game will not return.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2: Sisters Generation is not the only Neptunia title on the way. A strategy RPG spinoff to the series titled Hyperdevotion Noire Goddess Black will make its way onto American PS Vitas early next year. The next numbered title in the series, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II, is in development in Japan for the PS4. There is no word as of yet on when the game will make it Stateside. You can see more information on Victory II here.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2: Sisters Generation releases in North America on January 27th, 2014.
