    Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth Trilogy Lands on Switch

    In North America and Europe, all three Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth games will be available digitally in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch on May 21. Nintendo eShop pages and pre-orders will open at a later date. The PlayStation 4 versions do not appear to be heading to the west, however.

A bundle will also be available for 11,880 yen featuring all three games for a discount.

    Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation and Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3: V Generation are coming to PS4 digitally, but the first game was not confirmed. What’s more, pricing and release dates for the PS4 versions were not announced yet for Japan. 

    Here’s an overview of the games, courtesy of Idea Factory International:

    Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 Overview
    In the world of Gamindustri, four CPUs (also known as Goddesses) battled for supremacy in the War of the Guardians. One of the CPUs – Neptune – was defeated by the others and banished from the heavens. In her fall from grace, Neptune’s memories were lost, but a mysterious book revealed itself to her with knowledge of all of Gaminudstri’s history. Joined by Compa, IF, and the sentient book known as Histoire, Neptune embarks on an extraordinary journey across four different nations on a quest to save the entire world!
    Key Features
    • Now on-the-go! – Previously only available on PSVita and Steam in North America, now you can immerse yourself in the zany JRPG madness of the Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth series for the first time on Nintendo Switch!
    • Revisit Classic Neptunia RPG Style Battles – Battle with up to 3 characters on the field, with 3 more as support. Use them to perform special attacks or swap them out at any time!
    • Switch it Up with Plans – Use “Plans” to customize the game by changing up enemy difficulty, dungeon treasures, and more!
    • Gear Galore – Craft unique equipment imbued with one or more abilities!
    Hyperdimension Neptunia: Re;Birth 2 Sisters Generation Overview
    International Crime – morality has all but vanished. As much as 80 percent of all students are rumored to worship a being known as Arfoire, and the authorities have chosen to turn a blind eye to the threat. Basically, Gamindustri is pretty messed up, you guys. Ahem. Thus did Gamindustri fall into complete and utter disarray.
    Will the Goddesses be able to reclaim their world from ASIC’s grasp, or will they be forced to wander the Gamindustri Graveyard, forever lost?
    Key Features
    • Four or More for War! – Have up to 4 characters on the battlefield, and 4 more on the sidelines, ready to jump in and give their support!
    • Stella goes Rogue! – Send Stella out to brave Gamindustri’s dungeons in this realtime mini-game and she’ll collect all kinds of treasure for you – you just sit back and eat pudding! Be careful though, because if she dies in the dungeon, she’ll lose all her special gear!
    • The World’s your Oyster! – Customize the Gamindustri experience with Plans, which allow you to do things like increase/decrease enemy difficulty, change the items you’ll receive from a dungeon, and more!
    • Build-a-Sword! – Use Idea Chips and Blank Discs to create custom equipment that can open up new worlds of skills for you!
    Hyperdimension Neptunia: Re;Birth 3 V Generation Overview
    It’s time to Nep-Nep like it’s 1989. Neptune’s been sucked into an alternate dimension of Gamindustri! In order for her to escape from this late ‘80s world, Neptune will have to collect enough shares to open up the path to her own dimension. Sounds easy enough – except a nefarious alliance called the Seven Sages wants to rid Gamindustri of all CPUs (also known as Goddesses), including Neptune!
    Forging cross-dimensional friendships, will Neptune be able to defeat the Seven Sages, save this alternate dimension and get back to her own, or will she be stuck in the ‘80s forever?
    Key Features
    • +1 to Combos! – Customize attack combinations with up to five moves, opening a whole new array of ways to defeat your enemies!
    • Bring a Dungeon Buddy! – The realtime mini-game Stella’s Dungeon is back, and this time she can bring friends! Each is equipped with special skills that lend their support to Stella in her items quest, so choose wisely!
    • Remake in your Image! – Modify the world of Gamindustri to your liking by creating “Plans” that alter dungeon treasures, enemy difficulty, and more!
    • Get Crafty! – Customize powerful equipment that can unlock the true power of the CPUs, unlocking a world of new skills for them to use!

    In other Neptunia news, Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters was recently delayed to May 21 for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. The Xbox versions were originally slated to release on April 16. Idea Factory International wants to ensure the Xbox release of Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters goes as smoothly as possible, which is the reason why the game has been delayed.
