As part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the Hyperdimension Neptunia Series Idea Factory International has announced that Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Animation will be up for purchase on Steam this fall. It will arrive there in a couple of compilation episodes and an OVA. This release will also contain the opening and ending songs from Hyperdimension Neptunia™ Hyperdimension Neptunia™ mk2, Hyperdimension Neptunia™ Victory and the Hyperdimension Neptunia™ Re;Birth 1 – 3 series. This new version will contain an all new translation with Japanese audio and English, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese subtitles.
Here is a bit of information about each of the episodes and the OVA:
Hi☆Light: Crystal of Light (Ep: 1 – 5, 11, 12 + 5 songs):
In a world known as Gamindustri, four Goddesses and their sisters use the power of Shares to rule over their respective nations – the Goddess Neptune of Planeptune, Noire of Lastation, Blanc of Lowee, and Vert of Leanbox.
Though originally in competition, the Goddesses formed a Treaty of Friendship to bring peace to the land and free up time for them to do what they enjoy. However, nefarious crime syndicates, rival Goddesses, and a bevy of ne’er-do-wells will test the strength of their relationships and their very existence. What awaits the Goddesses, and will Neptune ever get a chance to clear out her gaming backlog?!
Hi☆Light: The Blazing Bifrost (Ep: 6 – 10, 13 – OVA + 3 songs):
What happens when more than one version of Gamindustri and its Goddesses are revealed to exist, and what awaits the Goddesses when the fate of the two dimensions become intertwined? Hopefully, there’s pudding at the other end of this dimension…
Summer Vacation (OVA):
The Goddesses and their sisters take a break from the hustle and bustle of nation-ruling with a quick camping trip to “My Summer Vacation Mountain.” When Nepgear, Uni, Rom, and Ram go for a walk, they pass through a series of shrine gates and…end up in another dimension?!
There they meet someone that looks like an older version of Neptune! What shenanigans will ensue, and can the sisters ever get back home? Are two Neps better than one?
