The game formerly known as Brave Neptunia has a new name and release date. Look forward to the latest Neptunia spinoff title in Super Neptunia RPG.
Plot Summary: There was once a primitive form of entertainment software that ruled the world: 2D games.
In one of infinite dimensions, the world of Gamindustri exists…
a world where 2D games reign supreme.
An organization fiercely devoted to these games rules over this vibrant world.
They are known as Bombyx Mori and their devotion comes with a heavy price.
Citizens of Gamindustri are forced to offer 2D games to Bombyx Mori as taxes.
Those who dare to use new technologies or create games that don’t meet
their standards risk being banished to the Trial Grounds.
It is in this Gamindustri, a dark world with no real future in sight, that a girl wakes from her sleep.
Her name is Neptune, and with a strange book in hand, she sets off on the journey of a Hero.

Developed by Artisan Studios in Canada, this game brings the characters of the self-referential Neptunia series to life in a whole new way. Each character was hand-drawn by Tsunako, the artist behind the series, then animated by computer magic to create a world that’s mysteriously gone from three dimensions to two.

Based on these screen shots Super Neptunia RPG is heavily inspired by the Valkyrie Profile series. Whether it plays similarly or features elements from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars remains to be seen. Get ready doods and peeps for The Almighty Nepster (BROTHER!) and her fellow CPUs to take over the 2D realm on not only the PS4 but the Nintendo Switch as well! Could this not only be the catalyst for the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise to conquer Nintendo but also The Almighty Nepster (BROTHER!) dominating the world of Smash Bros in the very near future!? I’m sure fans will say “Shouldn’t Blanc be the Neptunia representative?” In theory, yes. However, The Almighty Nepster (BROTHER!) has main character privileges. Just ask her.
Super Neptunia RPG is coming to the West Fall 2018.
