Users can also get an extra 10% off if they purchase Shachibato! together with Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 as a complete set bundle! And if you already own Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 you’ll still get that extra discount when you buy Shachibato!
Preapp Partners have teamed up with KADOKAWA as well for the multimedia Shachibato! franchise. The anime series (Shachibato! President, It’s Time For Battle!) is currently available on Funimation.
