Idea Factory International has announced that Super Neptunia RPG releases for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe this fall. Thankfully, the name has been shortened and saved from the explanation point overload, as it was originally known as Brave Neptunia World! Universe! Pay Attention!! Ultimate RPG Declaration!! in Japan.
Super Neptunia RPG brings the world of Neptunia into the side-scrolling genre, with players taking part if turn-based battles. The game will feature Japanese and English voice-over options, as well as English and French subtitles.
To learn a bit more about the game, here is an overview from Idea Factory International:
In a world where 2D games reign supreme, 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.
