Nep Re1 Battle(11)

With a torrent of titles arriving in the West, it's safe to say that fans of console parody JRPG series Hyperdimension Neptunia have been kept largely satisfied. From saving the Gameindustri in the core series to becoming the ultimate idol in Producing Perfection, it can be confusing to find a good point to jump onto this particular speeding train. Thankfully, it's a good time to hop aboard with VIta's Hyperdimension Neptuina Re;Birth 1 — a remake of the first Neptunia title — which is set to release in North America on the 26th August and Europe on the 27th.

While still covering all of the content from the original, it's received an upgrade that makes it more accessible to new fans as well as veterans wanting to go back and revisit the story. The plot remains the same, although all the character interactions have been revamped to maximise shenanigans between our lovely CPUs. For those revisiting, a new ending's also been added so that you've still got something new to experience. Elsewhere, the original's battle system faces the chopping block, with the release instead equipping the more recent mechanics found in Hyper Dimension Neptunia Victory.
