Idea Factory International has announced they will be bringing Neptune’s latest side scrolling adventure West Super Neptunia RPG to the West. The game is being developed by Artisan Studios in Canada. Each character was hand-drawn by Tsunako, the artist behind the series, then animated by computer magic to create a world that’s gone from three dimensions to two. The girls must explore this 2D world while they having one of gaming greatest debates, is 2D or 3D better?

Story
In a world where 2D games reign supreme, an organization called Bombyx Mori forces its citizens to churn out 2D games as offerings to their leader. Those who dare to use new technologies or whose games don’t meet their standards risk banishment to the soul-crushing Trial Grounds.

A girl awakens in this world with no recollection of anything beyond her name, Neptune, and soon realizes she possesses great strength. With her newfound sense of heroism and a strange book known as Histoire in hand, she sets off on a journey to see if there might be more than this two-dimensional life.

Key Features
Old School Dungeons! – Explore gorgeously painted, interactive dungeons in a style inspired by classic gaming titles.

Follow the Leader! – Enter turn-based battles where the party’s attack style changes based on the battle leader. Switch leaders on the fly, transform mid-battle, and use elemental attacks to maximize your team’s strategy!

Save Gamindustri! – In a time where retro gaming and 3D graphics are at polar ends, this story delves headfirst into the debate for a self-aware ribbing of gaming culture.

2D Comes to Life! – The hand-drawn art of Neptunia series artist Tsunako is brought to life by Artisan Studios, showing the characters in a whole new way!

The game will release this fall on PlayStation 4 and on the Nintendo Switch for the first time ever.

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.
