Upcoming Neptunia Games News Thread

Postby Wdog-999 » Sun Aug 03, 2014 12:12 am

The purpose of this thread is to compile info from the threads for the upcoming Neptunia games in one place to make it easy for people to find what they need without having to go through pages upon pages of comments.

Alright, a few ground rules for this thread:

1. DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD! The entire point of this thread is to allow for a place to see news for the upcoming games without having to wade through dozens of pages worth of reactions.

2. Leave posting to me, please. I'm fairly active on the forums, so I shouldn't have much trouble getting to news.

Alright, now to get to posting that info. :D

The story of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II will span three dimensions – Zero Dimension Netpunia Z: Ragnarok’s Goddess at the Edge of the Cliff, Hyperdimension Neptunia G: Gold Bellwether – Gamindustri’s Existence Transformation, and Heart Dimension Neptunia H: Trilogy Final and Thus into the Legend.
One twist is Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II will have an adult Neptune, but she is a different Neptune so she cannot transform into a goddess. Neptune will be joined by a new character named Uranus Uzume who has red pigtails and carries an orange and black megaphone. There may be another new character with blonde pigtails that an online report speculates may be a goddess

New information from this week's Dengeki:
Release Date: 2014
Platform and price: Unknown
Producer: Mizuno Naoko
Director: Onodera Shingo
Character Design: Tsunako
-A new character Tennosei(Uranus) Uzume is introduced, a red haired twintail girl,she has an orange and black colored megaphone with a whirlpool mark on it (Dreamcast?)
-Another unknown character, a blonde twintail goddess?
-A grown up Neptune shows up, unlike the Hyperdimension Neptune, this Neptune is a normal human so she can't transform

-The story takes place in 3 dimension(seems to be a parody of a game):
*Reijigen (Zero Dimension) Neptune Z Ragnarok of the Cornered Goddesses(not really sure how this translates)
*Choujigen (Super Dimension) Neptune G The Golden Vanguard, The Existence of the Industry Innovation
*Shinjigen(Heart Dimension) Neptune H Trilogy Finale, And thus into Legend

-A rough design of 4 characters from Neptune G, the Gold Sades is shown from mouth to bottom
-Interview and character design comments but still no info about the platform
-Nep Gathering has evolved to Beta

I have to say...don't really trust my translation of the names and the dimensions since i don't really get the parody, i know Neptune H is based on Dragon Quest 3 but i have no idea about the rest, so please take my translation with a grain of salt...


xizro345 wrote:Uzume Tennoboshi

CV: ????

A mysterious girl who fights alone in the "Zero Dimension". She has a simple strong-minded personality, and that is shown also in her clothing. She could be a patron goddess, but everything [about her] is unclear. Furthermore, her character design is made by the well-known Tsunako.

An interview about VII

BlackDestiny wrote:I'm reading the creators interview and...they said V-2 is not a sequel of V WTF?

Here is the interview btw
Spoiler:
Image
Image

The interview contents (only a few part that i'm interested)
-V-2 is not a sequel of V (WTF)
- There is going to be 3 different tales in 3 different dimension, Zero Jigen will focus on fighting an unknown large enemy and saving the cornered goddesses, Chou Jigen will focus on retrieving the lost goddesses and their relationship with the Gold Sades, Kokoro Jigen will focus on an adventure inside the goddesses heart, we might see an unknown side of the goddesses?
- The story and gameplay is different for each dimension, they said it'd be like 3 game inside 1
- Uzume might be the last goddess on the trailer
-The candidates, IF, Compa and Histoire is going to appear as well, but not Plutia and Pishe because this is not a sequel of V (again WTF?)
-The Golds Sades in not enemies but rivals of the goddesses, they are also a parody of something...
-2 sub chara shown: Chuko and Seaman(Umi Otoko?), they said Seaman is like Histoire for Uzume
- There would be a special battle with extra large enemy and it'd be different with ordinary battle
- They promised big improvement on customization, combo link and lily sistem


TheDefenderOfEarth wrote:I've only kind of skimmed over the last 10 pages, so this might be a repost of the interview.
Spoiler:
I drew Uzume with "Neptune's older cousin part 2" in mind. Part 1 was pururun. That said she doesn't look very Planeptuneish in all three parts. At first glance, the concept would be "Salaryman on the brink". She's wears a rough kind of jacket but this character survived fighting in a destroyed world so she's rather frank and wears whatever she pleases so we settled on shirts and shortpants worn loose. Incidentally because the buttons are being used, she just forces them in place with suspenders. As you can see, this leaves the necktie and the megaphone as the stand out points... the very personification of "fanciful" game of course.

This is a bit of a repost. The last three points I might have missed entirely while reading today.
Spoiler:
They've done a overhaul on the systems. There are special battles with big enemies, you can carve out your own routes in the world, hidden treasures are redone there are a whole lot of things to play with in the system. They've deepened the character customization, coupling and combo systems.


TheDefenderOfEarth wrote:They really just went at length describing the new character and not the story.
Consider this just a compilation post which contains the interview info.
Spoiler:
We threw out the design plans to make her a cheerful character but we gave her just as much impact as neptune and pururun leading to this manly form. Her worldview also matches how she looks. From there, Uzume's character steadily shaped the story.

Spoiler:
If you can recall, I included an illustration in one of the visual books that looks just like this Neptune with same clothes only with bits of nepgear's looks and color scheme... Basically, we went with podt transformation colors here. As for where she came from, she may or not be the same one from V's true end. While we won't ask you to play V before VII, it's perfectly fine if you do it the other way around too. Incidentally I saw Adult Nep's 3D mode dual wielding and her in battle pose seemed new. She's normally a sword character but she also has a gun holster there that she uses. The gun is the same as from that artbook, "Unlabeled"(?), I mentioned.

Spoiler:
These 4 girls are called Gold Third/Side/Sade by those around them. They are not a group though, they are top leaders and charismatic... it's kind of an honorary title. Each one is different from the last so I had a lot of fun with all these individuals. Also, they have power up forms not too different from the goddesses.


Another scan of Uzume. Seems to be based off of Dreamcast.

Actually, I think the whole thing might say a lot in just the visuals. It resembles a horror game's trailer more than a JRPG, and it just gives a very... from vibe, to me at least.

If not, I took screenshots of all the random things I saw. Apparently, Aquaman is a fish. Just like the Dreamcast game made him out to be.

The patron goddess' new appearance - Next Form.
In this illustration we see the Next Form, the stage Purple Heart transforms into from her goddess appearance。
It's an impressive big processor with a skin-tight suit.


xizro345 wrote:I don't have enough time to translate the longer comments, so I'm going for the short ones first, and it'll be a bit unconsequential, so I apologize for that.

Black Heart Next Form

Black Heart, whose body is clad in jet-black parts. The amount of skin exposure is reduced, in exchange for a stylish mood. It looks like the parts also show, robotic, thick and heavy wings [lit. something that looks like wings].

???
A mysterious existence who has a form and colour that reminds you of some aspects of Purple Heart. Needless to say the name and size, whether or not it's a life-form it is unknown. It is just an ominous wandering existence.

Neat. Neo-Arfoire NEXT gets more mysterious woman treatment.


xizro345 wrote:Afimojasu Shogun

CV:???

"Hm, so the time has come...However, goddesses without anyone believing in them [lit. without the power of faith] cannot be considered my enemy!"

Calls himself "General". Obsessed with money. Managing Gamegyokai's biggest information site, "@Shogun Matome Site", he manages to obtain a great amount of money manipulating the information provided by his followers.

Translated by me. I haven't seen the it in this thread, though I may have missed it.


xizro345 wrote:Stemax

CV: ???

"For the sin of pointing the blade towards the general, I'll grant you hell."

A shinobi working for General Afimojasu. Thanks to his natural small build he excels in covert action and information gathering, supporting the General's ambitions from the shadows.

xizro345 wrote:Character designer Tsunako's comment - Purple Heart's Next Form

During the development it became a suit that depicts the evolution of the next generation, and an image of growth. A "V"-like symbol has been used for the lines of the neck and the buttocks.
It became a feeling of a splendid black brightened by purple, and when it was assimilated in the hair, it could also be called the motif of Neptune [the planet], I've used light blue as luminescent color as of now, but this time this has been taken over, blending the pink color of the clear parts with a luminescent blue, somehow a feeling of everything being purple can be seen at a first glance.....I did something like that.

Latter half later, no time now.


xizro345 wrote:Tsunako's comment - continued

The hairstyle changed by having a polarized color and by unwounding the braid from the middle. Since the image of Nepko is so deeply rooted into the staff, I have trouble every time a new design is presented! This time it took me in total approximately half a year, including the preparatory work on the Next Form itself, temporarily stopping work to restart from scratch, while working on other projects at the same time.


xizro345 wrote:Director Shingo Onodera's comment

It's a new form for the patron goddesses. Now apart from the usual goddess appearance, in this game you can enjoy a second phase of transformation. Of course the motif has become the new fictious generation, and since the four goddesses represent fictional game machine, maybe if we'd go next generation....The concept of Next Form is based on this wild idea.


xizro345 wrote:Character Designer Tsunako's comment - Black Heart Next Form

It's equipped with several devices including something that looks like a Head Mounted Display, and sports characteristic partially rounded parts. The back design has a sailor-style collar that ends up emphasizing the design of the hip line. The design changed a bit in the final version.


xizro345 wrote:White Heart Next Form

White Heart's new appearance is characterized by rounded parts on the forearms and the legs. Note the important writing by Tsunako-san near the parts that look like a cap.


xizro345 wrote:Food for thought - How does Next Form affect characters and battle?

The three patron goddesses in Next form. Big differences [from the normal goddess form] can be clearly seen as a glance, but it would be more interesting to know about possible changes in the fighting style in the actual implementation of the Next Form.
Also, since the goddesses change their personality when transformed, there may be further changes [in personality] when they activate the Next Form.


xizro345 wrote:I noticed this was already translated elsewhere, but I did it on my own nevertheless. These are the sentences that appear on the silhouettes the four Gold Third members:

S - Chuunybyo at full speed!

B - Everything revolves around money!?

C - Bold and stylish lineage.

K - Neat and clean and yet with a soldier-like personality?


xizro345 wrote:Green Heart Next Form

There's a hint that Green Heart wil increase her sex appeal while accessing Next Form. The detail that stands out most is the green X mark on a part of the chest, what kind of meaning could it possibly have?


xizro345 wrote:Character designer Tsunako's comment - Green Heart's Next Form

It should be seen as strong, very armed and with the skin covered, but increasing the cloth area ended up oppressing....After all, that's not typical of Vert-san. It could be said I was driven by a sense of mission. A rough and healthy feeling. The points [of interest] are four translucent parts around the chest area.

Basically, she wanted to create a more armed version of Vert, but felt covering the skin too much was giving a sense of oppression and weight.

Anonymous wrote:>Tennouboshi Uzume, clearing the way for Zero Dimension's future

"V II"'s new character, Tennouboshi Uzume has been the focus of fans of the series. Rough sketches were published in Volume 564, and now here is her in-game 3D model. We also have a comment and introduction from her voice actress, Honda Mariko.

>Tennouboshi Uzume
She is a strong-minded and straightforward character. She will make her first appearance in this game in the Zero Dimension, one of the three dimensions, where she fights alone. Her identity and connection to Neptune and the other goddesses are unknown, but she will prove to be very important to the first half of the story.

Tennouboshi Uzume's voice actress is decided to be Honda Mariko. Her most well known roles are in the Seitokai no Ichizon series (Sakurano Kurimu), Nichijou (Aioi Yuuko), Robot Girls Z (Z-chan), and so on. V II will be her first role in the Neptune series, and below is her enthusiastic comment.

>Honda Mariko's Comment
I'm Honda Mariko, playing the role of Tennouboshi Uzume. When I first heard that I landed the role, I was really happy! I got right to playing the rest of the series right away (not sure how accurate this is)! Uzume has a very boyish manner of speech, a real sense of duty, and is very different from all the other characters in Nep up to now. This is also the first time I've played a red-haired twintail character before, so I was excited. Everyone, please check out this brand new world in New Hyperdimension Neptunia V II!

>Uzume's 3D Model
She uses a megaphone as her weapon, but she also sometimes engages in close-quarters combat. Expect dynamic action from this hotblooded girl!

Quote from "Anonymous" who seems to post 24/7 non-stop for the last 10+ years. I kind of wonder how he accumulated the hundreds of millions of posts on the /b/ board.

Those are all the individual different characters I caught, though I think a couple repeated. Also Pirachu and his new girlfriend. Neptune and the two robots were there two, but we've already seen both of them.

Anyway, it was pretty cool! Music was great and I'm already liking the new designs.

Robots are usually villains cause no males, they run a review site, Pirachu's "business rival" who owns a shop(?), the talking fish Histoire equivalent with the cool voice; the goddesses, candidates and IF and Compa should show up (the party's gonna be big), they changed up the combo system, potential character customization with weapons, then lots of talk about development for the PS4
Maybe I can do this tomorrow


xizro345 wrote:On to Neptune VII:

- Uzume is called "New Goddess" in the franchise;
- Uzume is the center of the three stories that make up Neptune VII;
- The game has been developed in a way a large number of people can enjoy it (bigger audience? just says "big number of people;
- With that said, people knowing more of the series will find more stuff to enjoy;
- The basic world is from Mk2 and V, despite adding new dimensions ;
- Game will start in the Zero Dimension, to help newcomers from the series;


xizro345 wrote:- The three stories will eventually converge into one;
- The game was originally created as "Zero Jigen Game Neptune";
- Pre-production started immediately after V, but then they had to choose between Fairy Fencer F or Zero Jigen Neptune, and chose the former.


xizro345 wrote:- including the concept phase, the game has been in development for about two years and a half (quite long for CH standards);
- As for the story, they won't say much, but Neptune and Nepgear get thrown into the Zero Dimension, where they find Uzume and the Adult Neptune. Along with them, they'll fight gigantic unknown enemies (the robots, if I have to guess).


xizro345 wrote:- In the Cho Jigen, the usual four goddesses are present. The keyword is "The forgotten Goddess", that will drawn the four goddesses and Gold Third together;
- They refuse to actually say anything about Gold Third, adding information will be revealed later;

By the way, this interview was conducted during TGS, even if it has been published now.


xizro345 wrote:- The last dimension is described as a "mysterious" dimension by Mizuno herself. Supposedly it portrays the soul of the people. Goddesses as we know it haven't really appeared there. She doesn't say more than this;

- The order of dimensions will be Zero -> Cho -> Kokoro. Uzume is the key of the story in each dimension.

The rest will have to wait a bit, I'm almost forgetting of preparing dinner, but I'll try to work on it as soon as possible.


Ultimate_Nova_X wrote:http://www.4gamer.net/games/277/G027741/20141008046/

I am now genuinely interested in the plot of the game, that took a while.


xizro345 wrote:- Adult Neptune is not a resident of Zero Dimension, and also it's not the same Neptune of the previous games (Mizuno says she gets asked a lot about this - people seem to think they're the same person);
- There are various settings (4gamers says it's "quite complicated"), but done in a way newcomers won't feel lost, people who know will be grinning (as in noticing interesting details, I suppose);
- Next, the discussion is about General Afimojasu and Stemaxx;
- They say the same thing about the two: the general runs a pay site which makes huge profits thanks also to the undercover work of Stemaxx (remember that "Stema" in Japanese means "Stealth Marketing").


xizro345 wrote:- Robots are often villains because the series is a world where males basically don't appear;
- Chuuko is a business rival of Warechuu;
- Umio (which is written as 海男) is Histoire's equivalent for Uzume;
- The four goddesses, the candidates, IF and Compa will appear (they jokingly say that the number of characters has increased considerably and the party will be lively).
- The battle system is completely new, it resembles the old one, but the combo system has changed.


xizro345 wrote:- Break has also changed;
- Positioning is important, and it's also useful to encircle enemies;
- Up to now the customization has been weapon dependent, but due to the changes made customization optiosn will increase.
- There will be familiar monsters but also new ones.


xizro345 wrote:- Certain enemies are so big, the party will appear very small (you can see that in Omega Quintet as well);
- They're making full use of the PS4 functionalities;
- Next Form is discussed (also called "second form of transformation") and Mizuno said Purple Heart was the hardest to design - nothing else was said ;
- Treasure chests pop up if certain conditions are met;
- Players can open their own path on the world map (whatever that means).


xizro345 wrote:- The team has received technical know-how on development from the Omega Quintet team;
- Despite PS4 being easy to develop, there were some difficult things to do when transitioning from PS3;
- PS4 was designed for realistic graphics, so they had issues in making it work with "cute" characters (they had similar issues with Omega Quintet, the map was too big);
- Motion was adjusted (among other things) when doing modeling on PS4;
- They work via trial and error method, as they don't have enough powerful PCs in-house for data handling;


xizro345 wrote:- Visually speaking, the game should look "completely different" on PS4 (as in better graphics and such, not that they changed the style);
- 4gamer asks if Neptune will be PS4 only from now on but they give a criptic answer (sort of "could be, but things may be unpredictable"), though they mention they're moving other franchises to PS4 such as FFF Advent Dark Force;
- Speaking of which, that game will have a new battle system and it's not a remake (4gamer asked that);
- There are other games in development but they can't tell details, Mizuno would like to do a "Neptune Sports" game though;
- Re;Birth3 gets mentioned but they really don't say anything new;
- The interview ends with a short messages to the fans (basically "please look forward to the games").

Delayed until next year spring

Here's something interesting.
Outline of Zero Dimension
The goddesses have been living in peace but once Neptune picked up a white console with Uzume's symbol and asked Nepgear to fix it. But once they started the console they were swallowed into a whirlpool.....and they arrive to a parallel world.

Yeah, that's the poll they announced at TGS, it's related to choosing the next main character for another Neptune title. Mizuno said (apparently) that this poll is the key.

Left side

Number of combo is dependant on the weapon type
Ex finishers are gone
EX drive resets every battle but easy to accumulate the gauge

A dungeon with concealed unknown enemies "Platform Zero"
In "VII"'s story you visit various dungeons but among them is a new dungeon that exists in the zero dimension "Platform Zero" The concept art is in the bottom right. The destroyed city is the stage for this dungeon. The ruined city "Platform Zero" is the home of monsters is the symbol of the world view of the zero dimension.

Platform Zero
A dungeon with a desolate scenery that gives off a gloomy mood. It was originally a lively town. There is currently no one living there. Could this be related to the eenemy that Uzume is fighting?

Spoiler:
To a new region!

Combo attack system changed

The main attack "combo attack"'s structure has changed. There are three types of combos, instead of "break" there is "standard". The number of times you can attack in a combo is decided by your weapon, it is a system that makes strategic battles possible.
Attacks that can be used in a combo
Rush

Damage is low per attack, but the number of hits are high. If used in succession you can gain a lot of hits.

Power
It is the opposite of rush, higher damage but lower number of hits. You can shave off a lot of the enemies HP.

Standard
In between power and rush. While increasing hit count it is helpful in taking out the enemies hp

Check
There are special traits in combos
When performing combos, acording to the order you use attacks the power of the attack increases. This "special trait" can be checked in the menu when your setting the combos

Satisfy the conditions and the power of the attack goes up, the name of the attack lights up as an indicator

Spoiler:
"Formation Skill" position is important
"Formation Skill" A special move that several characters can unleash. When using these skills, if it's 2 characters using the skills then close in on the enemy, if it's 3-4 characters then surrounding the enemy is needed. Always have the position of the enemy in your head and combine techniques.

From the system menu "Formation Skill"'s you can check the activation conditions
When you select "Formation skill" a line will be draw to the corresponding characters.

The symbol of the four countries that exist in Gamegyokai, "Planeptune", "Lastation", "Leanbox", "Lowee", the goddesses that protect the nations.
Patron goddesses were born out of faith of the people, by utilizing the power of the faith, "Share Energy", as their own power, they protect and lead the nation.
As long as the faith doesn't cease, it's possible to exsist as goddess semipermanently [note, the term 半永久的 used to indicate the duration means exactly "semipermanently"].


xizro345 wrote:Goddess Candidate

The little sisters of the goddesses of each country, the candidates as the next generation goddesses.
Like the Patron Goddesses, they are born out of the faith of the people, and they lead and protect the country along with the Patron Goddesses.
Compared to the Patron Goddesses they're young and immature, on the other hand it said they possess potential and latent faculties.
In the current Gamegyokai, Leanbox doesn't have a Goddess Candidate.


xizro345 wrote:Goddess Form

The transformation of the Patron Goddesses and Goddesses Candidates using Share Energy.

Tennoboshi Uzume

CV: Mariko Honda

[Her quote is the same as the reveal, but I don't have time to look for the post where I originally translated it]

A dreamer girl who fights alone in a spirited way in order to save the Zero Dimension.

She lives in world called "Zero Dimension" where Neptune and Nepgear have gone astray.

Her speech and conduct are mannish and blunt, but deep in she is loyal and passionate.

She's risking her life to protect the barely surviving citizens of the Zero Dimension, and it can be said she's the embodiment of vigour and fighthing spirit.

On the other hand, she also has a fiercely day-dreaming, girly side.

That's all I can do for now, I'll post the rest later as I have work now.

Uzume's partner, a fish with a human face who keeps a straight face all the time.
In contrast to his playful looks, he has an ordinary personality and is, as Neptune calls him, a cool uncle.
He doesn't stay in water and swims in the air all the time, but whether he breathes or uses branchial respiration is shrouded in mystery.

The self-proclaimed main character of main characters who blows away any adversity!!

"No matter the situation, by Main Character Compensation [a concept meaning that the main character, being central to the story, can't lose] I will make through it!"

Self-proclaimed "Main character of main characters", she has also become the title of this game and the series face.
Naturally bright and positive, while her high tension personality has refined a little more than the usual, a turning pont as goddess, she gets thrown into the Zero Dimension without a chance [of doing anything].
She has a certain appeal that manages to destroy any adversity or serious situation.

However, her only problem is almost all the time she's not called with her correct name.

Planeptune's Goddess Candidate, Neptune's little sister.
Her specialty is tinkering with machines, adding hidden feats....in short, she's a mecha-wota [a mecha geek].
She's a dependable person and she's often mistaken for her older sister, being a girl who greatly loves her older sister she unintentionally spoils Neptune.
She was the main character in a previous game.

In contrast with Neptune who forcibly pulls in everyone around her, she's a type of girl who supports the ones around her.

Seventh wrote:Anyway. Gematsu has some stuff on the game.

Spoiler:
Leaks for this week’s issue of Dengeki PlayStation reveal a feature article for Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II, with a major focus on new enemies known as the “Dark Goddesses,” as well as on the previously detailed new, separate incarnation of Neptune, among other things.

For starters, the Dark Goddesses’ CG models are shown off in the magazine, with designer Naohiro Washio remarking that he ensured they would fit within the established conventions for the series’ main goddesses and overall series’ sensibilities in general, feeling content at what he was able to turn out in the end. A fight with one of the Dark Goddesses, Dark Purple, is also shown. Given the huge size disparity, with Dark Purple clocking in at 30 meters tall, players have to hop aboard a floating island and take her on with Skills. As previous footage has alluded, other Dark Goddesses exist as well that correspond to the other goddesses colors.

More details have also arrived about newcomer Uzume Tennohboshi, a character we covered briefly several months back. As it turns out, she can become a goddess, as well, Orange Heart, bringing about not only a corresponding change in hair color, but also a bubbly and energetic personality. She can also use a technique that literally translates into “Dream Crushing Fist.”

Meanwhile, the “different” Neptune is still voiced by Rie Tanaka and she travels across various dimensions, using two-handed swords and pistols in battle. As she doesn’t have a younger sister to call her own, she expresses a desire to have one like Nepgear. Appearing alongside her is another Arfoire, too, also stated to be separate from the existing one. Apparently the new Neptune has it out for this other Arfoire, as she likes to tease her.

Rie Tanaka and Mariko Honda, Uzume Tennohboshi’s voice actress, are also interviewed in the magazine, bringing to light a few more details about their respective characters. The new Neptune, for instance, is on regular Neptune/Purple Heart’s side, ordered to team up with her under the guise of high schooler appearance. Nepgear and Uzume both have nicknames for her, with the former calling her “Big Sis” (literally, as in size) and the latter referring to her as “Huge Nep.”

Finally, a dungeon going by the name of “Jinguu Zakura Park” is also briefly revealed in the magazine. The scenery for it has seemingly been shown off in menu pictures in previous installments.

Her appearance is a complete change from her spirited and her blunt personality before the transformation, she changes to the soft personality of the "Honya system".

Like the smaller Neptune, she has a bright and positive personality, but contrary to her semi-adult appearance, she also shows a defenseless and innocent behaviour.
Her hobby is taking samples, and she has traveled through a lot of dimensions, with the "Nepu Note" in her hand, to seek out unusual insects.
Incidentally, despite being called Adult Neptune, it's unclear if she's an adult or a minor.

The destruction brought by the Dark Goddesses isn't only physical, ending up erasing space itself.
Therefore,in the places where the Dark Goddesses appear even the land completely disappears into nothingness.
They [are] the destined enemies of Uzume, who keeps on fighting them alone since a long time.
Their big frame is way over 30 m.
Somehow they resemble the Goddess Form of the Patron Goddesses. [the original text was a bit more vague, saying they give the impression of resembling the goddess form, but in English it doesn't flow very well].

Amazon has a product description for VII. I don't have anything to do so I'll translate it.

A battle over game industry.
A largely evolved battles system. A new system that utilizes linked skills with party members [Line Skill System].
A battle on a different scale that you can experience [Gigantic Battle].
An enemy with [breakable parts], the part used in an attacked can be sealed if you destroy the [breakable parts] [Part Destruction System], new systems that have never been used in the series!

Route path finding! [Route Build System]! This time on the world map, the important points that connect towns and dungeons [Routes] exists, in those routes you can do path finding!

Connecting towns and increasing interaction, and maybe you can find an unknown dungeon?

A new component to gathering [ Breaker]. There are things (objects) to destroy when you break things with symbol attack when gathering. A breakable thing (object) has a degree of strength, you will have to power up symbol attacks to destroy them. You might also get rare items for doing so.
I don't know if path finding is the correct word for this, maybe development is a better word.


xizro345 wrote:My take on it for the last part:

New elements of exploration [or lookup, hunting, research for items]! During the exploration of the dungeons, there are items (objects) that can be destroyed using Symbol Attack. The items that can be destroyed (objects) possess a certain strength, and there are also items that can be destroyed (objects) that can't be broken unless you power up Symbol Attack. By breaking them in such a way, there may be rare items.

A tsundere wo doesn't admit her feeling to the people close to her with a serious, elite temperament, who on the other hand ends up completing everything alone.
Due to that personality she has been teased and allegedly called "loner" by Neptune.
However, hidden from those around her, she has an hobby of cosplaying and making costumes.
Regarding her younger sister Uni she unintentionally ends up taking a harsh attitude, resultntg in a problem that has strained their relationship a little.

She is usually quiet, but when she accumulates [too much] stress she flips out, changing completely and going out of control.
Her hobby is reading, and she is the self proclaimed most intelligent and knowledgeable person among the four godddesses.

Leanbox's Patron goddess.
Her outward appearance is the one of a mature woman with a gentle, big-sister like, demeanor, but deep inside she has a super game mania and is a shut-in player, her private room full of a massive amount of games and goods.
She has a lot of confidence in her own style, and nonchalantly gives off an appeal of large size [I'm pretty sure you know what she's referring to...]

She is very concerned that she's the only one among the four goddesses who doesn't have a younger sister, and if the occasion arises, she acts like an older sister with the Goddess Candidates (mainly Nepgear).

The list of the possible combo of the weapon currently equipped.

2) Combo Set

The different combos that can be used by the currently equipped weapon.
Combo can be unleashed to a maximum of 5, and one combo can be set corresponding to the "Rush", "Power" and "Standard" types respectively.
Please note that the same combo can be only set in only one place.

3) Combo Details

"Combo Traits" - if you fulfill the conditions you can deal more damage than usual in battle.
Considering the sequence of use is the shortcut in strategy that leads to the creation of good, efficient sets.

Rest later, and I'm going to translate nao's comments about the OP as well.


xizro345 wrote:The image they used says there are no combo traits in the combo description so it's hard to tell what they actually are.


xizro345 wrote:Point - The number of combos is determined by the weapon!

The number of combo for all characters isn't common, but is determined by the weapon equipped. Therefore, selecting the weapon becomes the key of battle.

Image

Point - Utilize skillfully the combo "trait"

In this game the main structure of the "combo attack" has also changed.
Replacing "Break" from the previous games, "Standard" has been introduced, so that the attacks are composed of the free use of the three techniques "Rush", "Power", "Standard".

Image

>> Rush

Although the damage per blow is low, there are many hits. If fired in rapid succession, many hits are landed all at once.
Depending on the number of hits, the EXE Drive gauge will increase [accordingly].

>> Power

In contrast to Rush, the hits are few but the damage is high, reducing the HP of the opponent in a significant way.

>> Standard

A technique which is the middle ground between Rush and Power. It's useful to reduce HP while having an increased number of hits at the same time.

Image

At the moment of performing a combo attack, the order of use of a technique increases the power of the following technique used.
These "Combo Traits" can be verified in the menu, so review the "Traits" set when setting the combo sets.

Shikura's overflowing knowledge [lit: an explosion of knowledge] on very specific Nepu-related topics?I
Personally is what I find most thrilling.
Nepu fans first, but also Shikura fans, I'll be happy if you look forward the release of the song(^_^)

Planeptune's awe-inspiring Patron Goddess

CV: Rie Tanaka

"Goddess Purple Heart has arrived here!"

Neptune's Goddess Form.

With her adult appearance and calm composure she looks already like a different person, is someone the younger sister Nepgear is aiming to become.
However, in her action and words it's possible to spot a glimpse of her natural behiavour before Goddess Form.
With the exception of friends being in trouble or before powerful enemies, the Goddess Form is rarely used, the person herself saying "Because it's tiring".


xizro345 wrote:Black Heart

Lastation's high-minded Patron Goddess

CV: Asami Imai

"Up to now I was holding back, but maybe I should start being serious!? "

Noire's Goddess Form.
She changes to a full of confidence, belligerent personality.
Whileher fruitless efforts to hide her own true feelings reduce a bit, her high pride and tsundere are still present.


xizro345 wrote:White Heart

Lowee's powerful Patron Goddess

CV: Kana Asumi

"What a good situation. Let's decide clearly who is the strongest this time."

Blanc's Goddess Form.
The taciturn attitude [present] before Goddess Form disappears, changing to a constant rough tone of voice and a blunt attitude.
Her small build coupled with her offensive and defensive capabilities makers her an excellent close quarter type [literally it refers to a type of combat in which soldiers throw themselves at the enemy], however the fact that unlike the other three goddesses her body doesn't grow even if transformed worries her.

>B-sha (voiced by Ayana Taketatsu) – Clearly resembles Bandai Namco. A toy vendor and girl who loves money above all. She demands small sums of money for every little thing.
>K-sha (voiced by Rina Hidaka) – Clearly resembles Konami. A girl attending the girls’ school on Lastation. She enjoys music, both as a listener and a performer, and when she has a gun on her, her personality resembles that of a war veteran.
>C-sha (voiced by Haruka Tomatsu) – Clearly resembles Capcom. The leader of the Gold Third. Contrary to her appearance, she’s very gluttonous and has no power when she’s hungry.

Squall, Snake, etc. Square-Enix was facing bankruptcy before releasing their first Final Fantasy game, which is where the death line comes from.

xizro345 wrote:Planeptune

Located in the west of Gamegyokai, it's the country that goddess Purple Heart protects.
The successive generation of Goddess [refers to Neptune] is completely technology oriented, and due to that it sports some cutting edge, advanced technology.
The symbol of the country is the "Planeptower", which is both the residence of the goddess and the center of local politics.
Long ago, the country was put in a serious national crisis, but under the leadership of the pope Histoire the country was successfully rebuilt.
Even now Histoire is the figure who holds at bay Neptune's push of extremely bad ideas, managing the country.


xizro345 wrote:Lastation

Located in the east of Gamegyokai, it's the country that goddess Black Heart protects.
Due to the presence of several industries, the economic activity is very active.
In addition, being surrounded by the other three countries, it plays a central role in the trading [between the countries].
It often becomes a rival of other countries, but Lastation consider its main rival to be Planeptune.


xizro345 wrote:Lowee

Located in the north of Gamegyokai, it's the magic country that goddess White Heart protects.
It has the oldest history between the current countries, and due to that it has been protected by a big number of Patron Goddesses.
The entirety of the country is covered in white snow, but the area around the capital is relatively warm due to the divine protection of the goddess.
It's also referred as the land where the "Criminal God Magiquone" was born, and it suffered great damage in the past.


xizro345 wrote:Leanbox

Located in the south of Gamegyokai, it's the country that goddess Green Heart protects.
Unlike the other three countries, it's the only one that is present in a continent across the sea.
The Goddess''Shares inside the continent are the best, but the expansion [the term used actually refers to market penetration] of the other three countries can't be ruled out right now.
There's also the situation with the closest country, Lastation, which, despite the thriving cultural exchanges, is considered a rival.
From the time of founding, it has focused on military industry.

The girl with two minds, Gold Third and the hero of justice.

CV: Ayana Taketatsu (Kotori in Date a Live, Suguha in Sword Art Online)

"Help in battle is 1000 credits at time! Thank you for your continued patronage!"

A bright, innocent girl.
Loving toys, robots and heroes, she has boyish interests.
However, she loves money above all else.
She transforms in the mysterious hero "Presto Kamen", fighting evil day and night for the sake of children, but her identity is widely known.


xizro345 wrote:C-Sha

The one who travels looking for people stronger than her.

CV: Haruka Tomatsu (Iona Hikawa/Cure Fortune in Happinesscharge! Precure, Yuki Asuna in SAO II)

"I'll win this match easily!"

The only person with common sense in Gold Third, and the leader of the four people.
From her appearance it's impossible to guess how gluttony she is, and when she's hungry she has no power.
Usually she's the type who watches over the other three from a distance, but at the critical moment she demonstrates excellent decisiveness and judgement, more than anyone.
She has a strong obsession in being stylish.

"The supremacy over Gamegyokai....? Not interested."

A woman who looks cool if she's silent, but deep down is affected by the eigth-grade syndrome.
She's accompanied by monsters, "Slines" who act as servants.
She's indifferent to everything, and whenever the chance arises she utters her favorite sentence, "Not interested".
However, just for one person, has passionate, reckless feelings.

"K-sha here. I successfully infiltrated into the planned location. I will continue to carry out my mission."

A girl who is attending Lastation girls' school.
[Accomplished in] both the literary and military arts, it is said that every man around yearns for K-Sha.
Her hobbies include music appreciation and performance, and she also greatly enjoys music games.

Although she is such a girl, when she gets firearms in her hands for a moment, she doesn't care the slightest for the blood spilled [from her opponents], and her personality changes to a taciturn one, like a hard-bitten soldier carrying out a mission.

Formation skill is a special type of skill that is triggered by cooperating with the other party members [lit. allies]. It's possible to use one, two, three, four people, respectively.

Formation Skills can be selected from the "Skill" [menu] as "Formation Skills" (F. Skill)

2. Prepare the current state of the members (Before goddess form /after goddess form)
3. Accumulate the "EXE Drive Gauge" corresponding to the skill
4. Trigger Formation Skills!

>Next Purple
Her trademark braids are partially untied, her hair ornaments blooming. A suit, a image of growing wings, the front part of her body has become translucent, so that it
doesn't show skin, we planned to have something different from her normal transformation. The clear parts, is a mix of pink and light blue turning it into a purple colour.

Clad in clear parts, a divine aura, from a change in Purple Heart's hue. In regards to the back unit, arm and leg equipment, she can display her terrfying specs.

>Next Black
Large parts were added to her arms and head. The skin exposure were reduced. A new skill [Naname Blade] that uses the right eye which sends the enemies that stand in the way to oblivion.

The wing processor unit that emits blue-white effects, grants her mobility to the point where others can't follow her. The glass part on her right eye
isn't used for enemies only, it allows her to analyze all kinds of situations.

>Next Black Tsunako's comment
Using head mount display a motif and radiating parts as a special feature. A combination of glossy black and matte gray, tinged with blue, and a slanted weapon.
She also has sailor collar on her back(tl: no idea what Tsunako means by this). Truthfully I was fixated on her butt the most.

xizro345 wrote:I'm skipping the introductions since they don't say anything remotely useful. I'm getting straight to the interview part:

Honda: Hello, what are you doing here?

Manamitsu [character designer alongside Tsunako]: I'm in the middle of coloring an event CG. This is actually true for any picture, as we're aiming to show a peculiar type of "squishy feeling" in "Nepu".

Honda: The bath scene is quite important (laughs). By the way, how long does it take to finish a single event CG?

Manamitsu: It depends on the type, but sometimes it takes around three days.

Honda: Three days!?

Manamitsu: The event CG I'm doing now has around 200 layers, and there's also going to be Tsunako-san (Neptune series character designer) considerable retake on it (laughs). In order to offer uncompromsing illustrations, we modify little by little, going 1 pixel at time.


xizro345 wrote:Next up is Sumi, the designer.

Honda: Excuse me for disturbing, Oh, it shows [the character] I'm playing, Orange Heart!

Sumi: Here I'm adjusting precisely Orange Heart's Motion Portrait.

Honda: What is a Motion Portrait?

Sumi: It's the tool we use to move the character illustration. With this tool you set up things like lip-sync or the hair vibration, creating a character that moves smoothlly during conversations.

Honda: The Nepu series is 2D, however there are some mysterious conversation scenes that look like 3D! Do you have to be careful while working on these?

Sumi: You have to be careful to the parts that don't need to be seen when the characters move, right? I perform the setting of the Motion Portrait for each part of the entire body, but in a way that during the game the movement of the whole body appears natural, without seeing [the single parts].


xizro345 wrote:Kobayashi, the effect designer.

Honda: Amazing! There are so many flashy and pretty effects!!

Kobayashi: I work primarily on things such as character skills and EXE Drives, but I'm charge of the all the effects in the game. In the screen a part of a skill by Uzume is shown.

Honda: When I play the game I see effects as natural, but I feel there is a process to properly create them.

Kobayashi: Regarding skill effects, they're done to convey in motion the image of the person in charge, but fundamentally I make them from scratch. I certainly want them noticed when playing.

Honda: What has been the most difficult effect to work on up to now?

Kobayashi: in VII, the Goddess Form (transformation) scene. It's the highlight of the game, and I have to put a lot of effort in creating effects that suit the color of the characters.

Honda: I'm looking forward to Uzume's Goddess Form scene!


xizro345 wrote:Next up Sato (background designer) and Nakamura (motion designer).

Honda: Sato-san, what kind of work is specifically being done?

Sato: I'm making a 3D background of a dungeon. While watching at the previously prepared concept art and rough blueprint, I complement them using my own imagination for the parts that aren't shown.

Honda: Are you careful during production?

Sato: I have to make it so that it's as close as possible to the atmosphere of the 2D drawings. Since 3D models are following the route of ultimately becoming more and more real, I have to be careful that the gap with 2D doesn't widen.

Honda: Certainly, when talking about Nepu, the difference when switching from the 2D adventure part to the 3D dungeon part is relatively small. I can't almost feel the boundary [between the two modes]...

Sato: I'm grateful you're saying that. When changing from 2D to 3D, an abrupt change can be disorienting.

Well, I'm extremely tired so the rest will have to wait, unless someone else do that when I'm away.


xizro345 wrote:Nakamura part of the interview:

Honda: Oh, Uzume is running! Nakamura-san, you're working on such character motions.

Nakamura: Yes. I'm working on the entire 3D motion [part], such as dungeon movement [he's referring to the character movement], movement during battle, skill direction and motion.

Honda: During character movement skirt and hair move, but is this also done on a one at time basis?

Nakamura: That's correct. The movement [is done] by adjusting it carefully using manual procedures. Regarding bringing characters to life in the game, the motion is an extremely important element, and there are a lot of opinions flying among the staff. Director Onodera is also extremely picky about it.

Honda: What kind of requests does Director Onodera make?

Nakamura: He often says, during motion "make the chest move" (laughs).

Honda: Ooh, I see. He's extremely fixated (laughs).


xizro345 wrote:Matsui, the person in charge of skill scripting.

Honda: Hmm, Difficult-looking character strings closely packed together... My head is.... spinning....

Matsui: Are you okay? (laughs). Here, by using scripts to add voice and sound effects to the produced motions and effects, we assemble the complete skill.

Honda: There are effects from Kobayashi-san I've seen earlier! Matsui-san, you're combining separate elements into one.

Matsui: The storyboard of each skill is drawn, and we work in accordance with that, while at the same time we're ensuring that the production looks good.

Honda: What is the most difficult part you have deal with? And also, Matsui-san, do you name the skills?

Matsui: The difficult part is, when the camera switches during the skill trigger no superflous things should be shown. If we lose focus, it could also impact the appearance of enemies and effects. I'm not in charge of naming skills, Director Onodera is.

Honda: I knew it! Somehow I had that feeling! (laughs)

And that's all regarding useful material. Honda got to play a build of Neptune VII, and like in the photo comic she complained that Onodera wouldn't keep quiet (since he was telling her what could and couldn't be done).

Hm, I don't think it means 5pb will be in the game, I think it only refers to the color of the weapon being added. It'll probably be blue with the company logo on it.

Battle evolves with the new system "Parts Break"!

The new system called "Parts Break" has been introduced in "VII"'s battle [system]. As shown in the right image, there are enemies that equip on themselves parts that grant special effects, or there are some that hide weak spots [with them]. By attacking these parts you can destroy them, and if you manage to destroy them additional experience points and items will be obtained. Since destroying the parts means that the enemy cannot use parts of his attacks, it's good to attack them aggressively.

Example: Steamax's Parts

Right hand Tekko [a covering for the back of the hand and wrist]: Easier to unleash critical attacks;

Left hand Tekko: Blocks critical attacks;

xizro345 wrote:- When you attack parts, yellow numbers [appear]!

When the parts get hit, the damage is displayed with yellow numbers. Accumulate damage rapidly.

- Parts are successfully destroyed.

- Bonus GET!

If "Parts Break" is successfully executed, experience points, destroyed parts bonus (credits) and items are obtained.

Parts of design that were deemed important [lit. fixated on]

Since the foundation of General Affimojas is a stout and powerful-looking figure, he's clothed in armor with an aggressive design and a mantle, and his shilouette was made so at a first glance it evokes a feeling of a powerful enemy.
Furthermore, by using ornamental rims and moustache, I tried to also bring out an atmosphere of dignity fitted for a general.

Steamax, in contrast with the General, has a slim and simple perceived shilouette.
Using a style of ninja outfit, I tried to incorporate a line in order [to show] a "Stealth Marketing", stealth machine.
A point in contrast with the main body is the enormous Shuriken [lit. Shuriken with a big presence].
In addition both the bodies are designed to look not too heinous, despite being enemies.

If the "Breaker Level" is not high enough, the destruction of the objects will not be possible.

In order to challenge quests of higher degrees of difficulty it's necessary to raise the "Quest Rank" by completing a specific quest for each rank.

- However, up to now the Heart Dimension is still a mistery?

Onodera: The Heart Dimension, for certain reasons , is a world that fell into nothingness, it can be said that the entire dimension is on the brink of disappearing. Since it's related to the final part of the story, I won't spoil it ..... (laughs)

- Can you at least clarify one detail?

Onodera: Hmm.... At the center of the Heart Dimension lies a crystal, however the important point is that it's crumbling. Why such an important crystal in the "Neptune" series is crumbling in the Heart Dimension? Try to enjoy guessing the meaning until the release date.

The original line is, "It's very....big..."]

Dengekiko, Game Industri's greatest game journalist, answers 10 questions we're dying to know!

1) What's the "U" in "Neptune U" mean?
Dengekiko: Uh, I think maybe it's the U in NOWAARU...
Wait, how about "U = You"?
That's not it?
Then it must be NOWAARU. Look forward to Noire's lead-character-level role!

2) Who is superior, you or Famitsu-chan?
Dengekiko: Is that even a serious question?! Of course it's me!
I'm disappointed you'd even ask such a thing.
I've been around since mk2! I've lived a hard life! I had to eat weeds!
And then look at that Famitsu-chan. Wearing a crown and acting all royal. My straight-cut bangs are cuter than her crown any day! I've come this far in Game Industri because of my ambition and determination, and I'll never lose to the likes of her!

3) What are Planeptune and Leanbox and stuff?
Dengekiko: This world is divided into four nations, and those are their names. Their patron goddesses gain strength based on the faith of their followers.
I recommend everyone become residents of Lastation. If you worship Noire, you're bound to find happiness!

4) The younger sisters' will lose their clothes, too, right?!
Dengekiko: Of course, good sir! Heh heh heh heh.
You like it, eh? Don't worry, good sir, Nepgear and Uni and co. will have their clothes in tatters, too. All of you who love little sisters can go ahead and buy Neptune U, on sale August 28th! (OK, perfect stealth marketing job!)

RAM speech balloon: ""I think that naughty things are bad! You dummy! Dummy!" [modified version of Mahoromatic's meme quote "Ecchi na no ha ikenai to omoimasu!"]

Dengekiko speech balloon: "Ugh, shut up Ram! Dear readers, we'll show you the sisters clothes getting destroyed next issue!"

5) What's that plush doll you've got, Dengekiko?
Dengekiko: It's Dengeki Playstation's mascot character, Politan.
He changes expressions along with me during the game.
...What's that? He's cuter than I am?
I think you and me are gonna need to step outside, IF...

6) I don't know how to play action games!
Dengekiko: Just mash the buttons and moves'll pop right out!
Yeah, when you think of action games, you think of difficulty. I pumped so much money into hard arcade games when I was young. Thinking back on it makes me want to cry...
But Neptune U has easy controls so anyone can enjoy it. You can get combos just by tapping on the buttons, so let's just have fun with the fast-paced exciting combat!

7) Is there even any demand for tinyflat chests like Blanc's?
Dengekiko: There are people in this wide world who like those.
The world works based on supply and demand. The fact that small-chested characters have not disappeared means that there must exist people who prefer Blanc's smoothness over Vert's fluffy softness. And I'm not just saying this because I'm a bit on the slender side!

Dengekiko speech balloon: "According to my research, the nation of Lowee appears to have a large number of residents who prefer small."

8) Why does Neptune's level go down every game?
Dengekiko: Th-that's uh, probably so people can enjoy playing the game, I'd guess...?
Now that you mention it, that is kind of strange. No matter how much you raise her level, it always starts over in the next game. I have a feeling it's due to Neptune's habit of lazily slacking off.
Histoire speech balloon: "I'm always struggling with Neptune's laziness."

9) I won't stand for us to be the only ones who lose our clothes!
Dengekiko: Wait, what? What?? My clothes are going to rip, too?
Neptune and friends have a rough job. Having to fight while your clothes come apart sounds like something you'd expect from one of those "sexy action" games. Oh, well, my talent agency won't permit me to be seen in my underwear so it won't happen to me.
...What? That doesn't matter? H-Hey! Nobody told me about this!
...W-Well, okay. If my clothes are going to tear off, then I'll put on my best underwear!

10) So, anyway, the most popular character is Neptune, right?
Dengekiko: It's unquestionably Noire! You can quote me on that!
After the release of Chou Megami Shinkou Noire: Gekishin Black Heart, Noire's popularity is exploding! Merchandise is flying off the shelves, and I've heard through a certain source that the franchise name is going to be changed to "Noitune." In addition, I, Dengekiko, will be promoted to main heroine status.

...I'm sorry, that was just my fantasy. But Noire's popularity is no lie! It's time to put this to a vote to settle it! ...But my editor hasn't actually given the go-ahead to arrange that.

[Dengekiko final comment box, bottom left]
"A Dengekiko column written out of pure enthusiasm with no real plan for what to write!"
Hello, everyone! Are you conserving electricity? It's me, Dengekiko. My editor told me I should put some comments here to balance out the page layout, but I don't really have anything specific to say. Oh, but I did learn that I'm going to have my clothes ripped up, too... Well, at the point I was given the part, I did have a faint suspicious this might happen... B-but even when naked, I still won't lose to Famitsu-chan! Oh, hey, if my clothes can come off, does that also mean I get to transform and power-up? "I am no longer Dengekiko... You may call me, Super Dengekiko!" Heh heh. I'll go ask Compile Heart real quick.

Dengekiko's interviews continue...

An enjoyable game that you can use your favorite character but the one you should be attentive of is our Dengekiko. As a game reporter she is firmly involved in the story, you can't miss her battle of news coverage with her rival Famitsu-chan. The two of them can equip the same prosessor units as the goddesses. Dengekiko an existence equal to a goddess (?) !

Somewhat Nep U related.

In the comment it mentions that Dengekiko's highlights are her skills.

For example she has a skill that shoots an electric-like metal like object (Reference to Biribiri's Railgun probably)

She has a another skill where she dual wields swords (Reference to SAO probably. It mentions VRMMO)


The following videos do show off a bit of gameplay, but are mostly about the costume breaks for the normal and HDD forms of the goddesses.

WELP. Somebody either blew the news or this is a well timed ruse.

We shall keep you posted! Play-Asia has it listed for this December, but I get the feeling that's a placeholder... or maybe the surprise reason why news on VII has been so slow?! We shall see!

The game features the scenario of the original game with added scenes in the opening, as well as a new scenario available after clearing the game. The menus and user interface have been updated, the battle system is partly changed, and systems from Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-II are being added. This includes the “Treasure Search” system, which will allow you obtain items by searching for hidden treasure boxes.

Felistella is back. Also, 4chan provided a better interpretation of that menu than I ever could.

There's a leader skill now.

I'm not 100% sure on the Google translate, but I think you have to "rescue" the partners from the various dungeons and then they get to join her in future ones.

Time passes even when the Vita is in sleep mode, so that's a boost. Otherwise it seems to be nearly identical to the R;B 2 iteration.

-Enemy resistances are displayed if they're in effect, in addition to enemy weaknesses.
-Transformations consume the SP gauge, as do the EXE Skills, as that gauge has been removed.
-Enemies now display what item they have dropped when defeated.
-The Felistella "Nariyuki Dungeon"/Course Dungeon has no new information from what I can tell. Still allows you to bring a partner character along which must first be rescued from a dungeon.
-Something about the formation skills. I can't really tell what it's about. It does appear to use two full SP gauge blocks from the video.

It'll also be a "School story", according to Mizuno.

- According to the interview, the game was in the making before the poll results;
. The result was unexpected, but the development had no trouble;
- Not a sequel (of U) but rather a school youth sports story;
- Large changes due to four people multiplayer;
- All the characters from U reappear;
- Being a school story, everyone has school uniforms.

- THe main character is an original character (drawn by Tsunako) called Sega Hatsumi (only shilouette shown, seems a petite character with a ponytail);
- It's an RPG where the heroines of the two worlds cooperate;
- Developer is FELISTELLA;
- The development started around summer of 2014 (as in preliminary talks);
- FELISTELLA does the game part, the Neptune Team provides visuals;
- The game system is greatly different from the Neptune series, and there are some gimmicks, also they tease some sort of "assassination action";
- IF and Hatsumi seem to share the spot in this story.

The game offers a time leap system.
Felistella developing the game.
Saturn, Megadrive, Dreamcast and Game Gear shown.
Release date to be determined - seems they're trying to go for a 2015 release.
Hatsumi is amnesiac and is trying to stop the struggle between the goddesses snd the Sega Hard Girls.

- IF's design isn't done by Tsunako in this game, but by Katsuyuki Hirano (Spectral Souls, Agarest Senki, Moero Chronicle);
- Hatsumi, as said way back, is done by Tsunako;
- New actions include crawling (as shown in the picture of the preview article) and wall climbing;
- The time leap system is only mentioned and not described in detail.

IF's rocking that new outfit, I love it! Sega Hatsumi's also pretty cute, I especially really like her color scheme.
