Brave Neptunia: O World, O Universe, Behold!! The Declaration of Ultimate RPG!! has one of the quirkiest titles a JRPG has ever had. This game is part of Compile Heart’s Neptunia series, but this one is set with a different theme. Details of the game has been released on its official website, and it goes quirkier and quirkier by the minute. The site contains information about the story, the Goddesses, Histoire, and the limited-time-only “Hero Edition.”
Here are some details taken from the website, translation courtesy of Gematsu:
A self-proclaimed hero and her merry companions travel around the world.
2D games—planar games made up of pixels and illustrations. In one of many dimensions, there exists a Gamindustri built upon 2D games.
In this world ruled by an organization called “Silkworm,” which worships 2D games, people create 2D games and pay taxes in game casettes.
It is rumored that those who produce poor games and games that make use of new technologies are sent to the trial grounds, where their spirits are destroyed. In this Gameindustri, which damns that sort of future to hell, a girl who lost her memories awakens.
The girl, who knows not left from right, headed to the neighboring town under the order of Silkworm, but monsters blocked her way. She fought back with a cypress stick that had dropped and won a splendid victory.
It was then that she knew for certain. That she is a hero, the protagonist of this game named Neptune. The self-proclaimed hero Neptune will encounter various people and go on a journey with a mysterious book (Histoire).
