Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 - Logo With Characters | oprainfall

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth is heading West late summer 2014 for the PlayStation Vita courtesy of Idea Factory International. I’m personally very excited about this news, as this version of the game has a ton of improvements over the PS3 release. Here are some of them from the press release:

Key Features and Differences from the PlayStation®3 version:
An overhauled battle system! Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 takes the original game and equips it with the battle system of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory! This gives the player a more in-depth gaming experience!

New scenario, new ending! The main story and event scenes are renewed from the PlayStation3 version. The core storyline will remain mostly the same, but the conversations between characters are all new! A new ending has been added as well! This will allow players returning from the PlayStation3 version to enjoy the game anew!

New “Remake System”! A new system has been added to Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1: the “Remake System”! It lets players customize and make changes to the game system itself by obtaining “Plans”!

Receive Blank Discs to craft your own Game Discs! You can create unique equippable items by burning Idea Chips (abilities) onto Blank Discs! Depending on the Idea Chips used, a Godly Game may result, which will grant you an additional ability!

DLC brings more playable characters and more! Additional characters will be playable through DLC; players can increase the level cap to 999; and additional monsters, quests, and dungeons will be available!

We have very few specifics on how Idea Factory International is handling this release, but we’ll keep you informed as details surface. You can check out the full press release for more information.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

  • RagunaXL

    that’s great! vita is starting to get some rpg’s. this game really makes me want one.

    • Keichi Morisato

      yeah, but people will still argue that it is a port of a 5+ year old game.

    • Steve Baltimore

      They changed so much in this version of this game I would argue it’s not really a port anymore.

    • Keichi Morisato

      i totally agree, but it won’t stop people using it as a weapon against the Vita. i find it sad that people find joy in insulting consoles with a small library no matter how awesome the system is. the Wii U and the PSVita are fantastic systems that work great, and have fun games. and if more people purchased the systems, more games would be made for them, but no one wants to buy it, because they think that it won’t be supported, and so many people think that same way that it has become a self fulfilling prophecy.

    • An Tran

      That’s only because most people these days can’t tell the difference between a port and a remake.

    • Keichi Morisato

      yeah… and most people can’t tell the difference between a remastering and a remake. for example, Duck Tales Remastered is actually not a remastering but a full on remake and people think it is a remastering, but WW HD people call a remake but is actually a remastering.
