The Hyperdimension Neputnia spin off Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart launches today on PSN and in retail stores. European fans will have to wait just a bit longer, as the game releases in there Physically on February 27th and digitally on March 4th.

Noire, the Goddess of Lastation, stars in her very own strategy game. The game was co-developed by Sting, who are no strangers to this type of game. It features a cast of new characters, lots of unique battle fields, and much more. We will have a full review of this one on the site in a few days.

Here is a a bit more about the game directly from the press release:

The very first strategy RPG in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series!

Unlike previous Hyperdimension Neptunia games, Hyperdevotion Noire is not set within the world of Gamindustri, but instead within a similar, but separate, world known as “Gamarket”.

The CPUs of each of the four nations are locked in heated battle against one another for dominion over this world. Just as Noire is one step away from complete domination, the CPUs are suddenly robbed of their powers by an unknown force. Now in order to save the world from destruction, the four CPUs must unite Gamarket and defeat the onslaught!

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.
