Great news for all of our Nep-Nep fans out there (which includes many of the staff, including myself): Idea Factory announced that Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed is out today on Steam! For some people these Steam releases are their first introduction to this world, but for others it is nice to be able to play these titles on a larger screen than the PS Vita, so this is a welcome release for both parties. You can read our Review of the PC release and see what we thought. And as an added bonus, for the first week Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed is 40% off. It’s MSRP will be $29.99, but it has been discounted to $17.99 so you may want to hop on this train quickly. The press release is available below.
LOS ANGELES, CA., March 21, 2016 – Hyperdimension Neptunia™ U: Action Unleashed is now available on Steam, for a weeklong launch discount of 40% off! Our first-ever foray into the 3D action hack ‘n’ slash genre for the Hyperdimension Neptunia universe was originally released on the PlayStation®Vita system, and is now on Steam with newly updated graphics! Choose your tag team and rip through massive hordes of enemies with exciting aerial and ground-based combos. Look out, though – take too many hits and your clothes and defense will end up shredded!
Gamindustri – a world protected by the four CPUs and their CPU Candidates. No world can remain unseen by the eyes of evil, but due to the combined efforts of the CPUs and the CPU Candidates, no strong enemies or monsters are able to cause any chaos. Thus, the CPUs and their people find themselves in a peaceful boredom. Amidst this relaxing time, the CPUs are approached with a fascinating proposition…
- Street brawling in 1080p! Your favorite Neptunia characters get to hack ‘n’ slash theirway through waves of enemies in real time with updated, 1080p graphics!
- Two-person party! With the Dual System, you’ll be able to switch between two characters on the battlefield. Balance out each character’s strengths and weaknesses to create the ultimate battle duo, and even get some new playable characters – some of whom might be familiar from previous Neptunia games.
- Let’s get physical! The heat of battle can cause some wear and tear on your outfits. When you experience a “Costume Break,” your outfits will tear, lowering your defense but increasing your critical rate and EXE Drive Gauge. The road to comebacks is paved with ripped fabric!
- Skills get the kills! Fill up the EXE Drive Gauge in order to clear the room with two tiers of special attacks, and you might just get a helping hand from your friend later on to perform some super special attacks!
