Everyone needs a change of pace sometimes, and the Goddesses of the Hyperdimention Neptunia universe are no different. Not only is the PlayStation CPU starring in her own game Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, but it's also the first strategy role-playing game in the franchise – a perfect fit for its Vita format. It's a busy start to the year, with Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth2: Sister's Generation coming out later this month and the new announcement that Noire will be released in North America on 24th February and in Europe from 27th February.
Our chibi goddesses will be returning to the battlefield with an army of new allies by their side, with just as much customisation as in previous titles. The battle maps thankfully promise to be more interesting than bludgeoning your enemies to death, with the promise of moving terrain, laser beams, and fire pits. The lily system will also be making a return, allowing you to give bonus stats to the girls – and the promise of something super special if you seal the deal with a kiss. With such big changes, seeing is believing, so make sure that you check them out yourself courtesy of the trailer embedded below.
Are you a hardcore Neptunia fan looking for more action, or is the new battle format luring you in? Praise the goddess in the comments section below.
