This week Idea Factory International released some new screenshots for the upcoming Super Neptunia RPG. This 2D adventure features some beautiful artwork hand drawn by Tsunako herself. You can explore dungeons and more in the quest to answer that age old question. Which is better, 2D or 3D?

The Battle Pt. 2 – Break Attacks screenshot batch shows off the Goddesses and a new character, Chrome, performing their special Break Attacks!

The Break Attack gauge has four slots that fill up as you attack the enemy. Once a slot fills, you can select a character to unleash a Break Attack. Choose to perform a Break Attack at every chance, or wait until all four slots fill so all party members can cause ultimate destruction!

Here is more information from the press release:

SYSTEM UPDATE: ELEMENTS, BUFFS/DEBUFFS, GODDESS FORM, BREAK ATTACKS

Elements: Skills have an Elemental type that can affect the damage that enemies and allies take. With a total of 9 Elements, players will need to prepare and set their skills accordingly to defeat any foe. An enemy can react to elements in three different ways: Weak, Absorb, and Resist. Players should note that if the elemental match-up is unfavorable, you can end up dealing zero damage, or even healing the enemy.

Goddess Form: Players can transform their CPUs into their Goddess Form when the Goddess Gauge is filled. The Goddess Gauge will increase as your CPU take damage from an enemy during battle. Transforming into their Goddess Form will change your CPU’s appearance and also increase their stats.

Break Attacks: Each character can perform a character-specific special attack known as a Break Attack. Before you can cast your Break Attack, players will need to fill their Break Gauge, which increases every time you deal damage to an enemy. Once a slot is filled, players can pick one character to unload their Break Attack.

You can also check out the official site for character updates on Neptune, Blanc, Noire, Vert and the all new character Chrome.

Super Neptunia RPG will launch on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch , physically and digitally, in North America on June 25 and in Europe on June 28. The Steam version will launch on June 20.

Steam users can grab the Deluxe Bundle which includes that game and the Deluxe Pack for 20% off permanently. The Deluxe pack alone will have a 20% discount for the first week and includes:

  • Character Art Collection

It should also be noted the PlayStation 4 version has two slightly modified CG images to meet Sony’s new content policy. Gameplay is the same on all platforms.

 

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.
