Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters Comes to Xbox
While the Goddesses were out responding to a distress call from the faraway PC Continent, Nepgear and the other Candidates were sent to investigate an abandoned laboratory.
It was there that they found the “Ashen Goddess”, who trapped them in a deep sleep capsule. By the time they awoke, 2 years had already passed.
The latest smartphone, the “rPhone”, dominates the market.
Neptune has been missing since her mission to the PC Continent, and in the absence of its Goddess and Candidate, Planeptune was ravaged by a strange new phenomenon, the Trendi Outbreaks.
Suddenly finding herself robbed of home and family, Nepgear falls into a deep depression.
This is a story about finding hope in the midst of despair, and the rebirth of a Goddess in the wake of destruction.
