Idea Factory International has a ton of info to share on the upcoming release of Neptunia Virtual Stars on PlayStation 4 and Steam. The official site has updated to show off the following gameplay systems: Field, Guest Vtuber System, Emotional Overdrive and My Battles.


Here is overview of each system from the press release. You can also check out the Neptunia Virtual Stars official site for more.

Vtubers are real-life internet stars who have been kidnapped by the Antis to destroy Planet Emote’s content. The Gamindustri Goddesses and V-Idols must collect V-Cubes from defeated V-Hunters to save the Vtubers.

Players will have to progress through several dungeons to defeat the Antis that await on the battlefield!

Explore new and unique dungeons that range from giant libraries to structures made of desserts!

Guest Vtuber System
When the planet Emote had been invaded, several Vtubers were taken hostage with no way to escape! The Antis were quick in rounding up these internet stars. By defeating V-Hunters and retrieving V-Cubes, players will gain access to new Vtubers!
Locate all the Guest Vtubers to unlock new abilities! When players rescue Vtubers the Guest Connect ability will be unlocked. Guest Connect borrows the powers of the Vtubers you rescued to support players in battle. Each Vtuber has their own unique skillset!
Vtuber Search Comm
Locate Vtubers in need of rescuing! Expanding the NeoTube Plaza enables the Vtuber Search Comm to locate captured Vtubers! In Vtuber Search Comm, use signals from civilians to spot the location of the V-Cubes under custody of the Antis! Can you find all the Vtubers?

The MV Battle System uses special songs sung by the Virtual Idol heroines of this title. Combine the power of Goddesses and V-Idols to defeat the bosses! You’ll face bosses that are much stronger than other Antis on the field during MV Battle!
Finish Drive
Fulfilling certain conditions during MV Battles will enable Finish Drive! Link together for a massive chain attack, and give the enemy something they’ll never forget!

As a fan of some of these Vtubers I’m pretty excited to see how this one turns out!  Neptunia Virtual Stars will release on PlayStation 4 in North America on March 2nd. Our friends in Europe will have to wait a few more days until March 5th. The Steam version will release on March 29th. All versions of this game will include Japanese audio with subtitles.

Folks in the US looking to snag up a Limited Edition can do so next week on February 2nd at 11AM PST on Iffy’s Online Store.

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.
