Today via press release Idea Factory International has announced that Megadimension Neptunia V-II will in fact be hitting Steam this summer. This is great news for PC fans of the franchise that have been hoping to get their hands on this one.  The PC version will feature all of the DLC from the PlayStation 4 release, Japanese audio, as well as smooth 60 FPS gameplay. Here is some more information about the game straight from the press release.


About Megadimension Neptunia VII

G.C. 2015- Gamindustri has entered a precarious season known as the CPU Shift Period. During this time of social unrest, deprecating rumors about the CPUs have begun to saturate Gamindustri. Neptune and the others worry the citizens will soon call for new leaders to replace the them and that their rule will end.

In these critical moments for Planeptune, Neptune and Nepgear mysteriously disappear. Their destination: a divergent world, nearing its catastrophic end, called the Zero Dimension. They encounter the last remaining CPU of this world, UzumeTennouboshi, who is desperately waging a lonely battle against a colossal evil known as the Dark CPU.

Will Neptune and Nepgear be able to work together with Uzume in order to save Zero Dimension from tragedy? So begins a new adventure for Neptune…

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.

    I’m tempted to repurchase just to own this one on Steam. This game is truly fantastic.

    • Steve Baltimore

      If my PC can handle it I likely will as well.

  • JGuill

    It’s crazy how quickly these games get ported. Is this one a good entry point for the series?

    • Steve Baltimore

      Not really, I’d recommend starting with Re;Birth 2 at least so you get a sense of all the characters. You could start here and understand the story, but you won’t get as much out of it.

    • William Haderlie

      I agree with Steve, your best entry point to really appreciate the series would be Re;Birth 2 and Re;Birth 3, especially since this is basically the sequel to V (Re;Birth 3) but 2 would give you a lot more story context as well. Plus they get better with each game, especially fighting mechanics, so it’s much more difficult to go back than forward and still appreciate each game.

    Next nep game should be neptunia 4K

    Does this mean no Vita version like there were in the past with the other games?

    • William Haderlie

      A PS Vita version is very unlikely. The PS3 games were a pretty easy port, but there are a lot of fights that would be nigh impossible to reproduce on the PS Vita, due to hardware limitations. If there is a Re;Birth 4, I would expect it on PS4 and/or PC.
