Super Neptunia RPG New Battle Pt. 2 Screenshot Batch + Website Updates!

Ready to battle?

LOS ANGELES, CA., MAY 23, 2019 – This week, we have several updates for the upcoming June release of Super Neptunia™ RPG:

Screenshots: Battle Pt. 2 - Break Attacks
System Update: Element, Buffs/Debuffs, Goddess Form, Break Attacks
Character Profile Update: Neptune, Noire, Blanc, Vert, Chrome

Super Neptunia™ RPG is headed for the PlayStation®4 and Nintendo Switch™, physically and digitally, in North America on June 25 and in Europe on June 28! The Steam® version will launch on June 20.

The PS4™ release will have two slightly modified CGs. The Nintendo Switch and Steam version will contain all original CGs. Gameplay for all platforms has not been changed from the original Japanese release.

Developed by Artisan Studios in Canada, this game brings the characters of the self-referential Neptunia™ series to life in a whole new 2D way. Each character was hand-drawn by Tsunako, the artist behind the series, then animated by computer magic to create a world that’s mysteriously gone from three dimensions to two. Explore side-scrolling dungeons and fight in turn-based battles to settle the debate once and for all – which games are better: 2D or 3D!

BATTLE PT. 2 SCREENSHOT BATCH -BREAK ATTACKS

The Battle Pt. 2 - Break Attacks screenshot batch shows off the Goddesses and a new character, Chrome, performing their special Break Attacks!

The Break Attack gauge has four slots that fill up as you attack the enemy. Once a slot fills, you can select a character to unleash a Break Attack. Choose to perform a Break Attack at every chance, or wait until all four slots fill so all party members can cause ultimate destruction!

SYSTEM UPDATE: ELEMENTS, BUFFS/DEBUFFS, GODDESS FORM, BREAK ATTACKS

Elements: Skills have an Elemental type that can affect the damage that enemies and allies take. With a total of 9 Elements, players will need to prepare and set their skills accordingly to defeat any foe. An enemy can react to elements in three different ways: Weak, Absorb, and Resist. Players should note that if the elemental match-up is unfavorable, you can end up dealing zero damage, or even healing the enemy.

Goddess Form: Players can transform their CPUs into their Goddess Form when the Goddess Gauge is filled. The Goddess Gauge will increase as your CPU take damage from an enemy during battle. Transforming into their Goddess Form will change your CPU's appearance and also increase their stats.

Break Attacks: Each character can perform a character-specific special attack known as a Break Attack. Before you can cast your Break Attack, players will need to fill their Break Gauge, which increases every time you deal damage to an enemy. Once a slot is filled, players can pick one character to unload their Break Attack.

CHARACTER UPDATES: NEPTUNE, NOIRE, BLANC, VERT, CHROME

Story

The self-proclaimed hero, Neptune, awakes in a familiar world, but has no recollection of anything other than her name. With the help of a mysterious girl named Chrome, as well as three other familiar faces beloved in the Neptunia™ series, Neptune embarks on a journey through the mysterious dimension to try to regain her memory.

Little do they know, the world they inhabit is under attack by an enemy who wants to take civilization back to the time where 2D reigns supreme.

Can Neptune and her friends save the world and 3D games as we know it, or will they be flattened into two dimensions forever?

Key Features

New Me in 2D – Your favorite Goddesses jump from three dimensions to two! Artisan Studios and Compile Heart proudly present new, vibrant backgrounds and newly developed 2D animations hand drawn in this action-inspired side-scrolling RPG! With Artisan Studios and Tsunako collaborating to create new background and character art, fans and newcomers alike can see Gamindustri in a new 2D perspective.

Where You Lead, I Will Follow – With four Goddesses to rotate on-the-fly during battle, players can change their formation type and unleash devastating attack combos. Depending on which Goddess is leading the pack, players can strategize attacks from four different formations: Strike, Magic, Support and Heal!

Goddess ‘bout to Break! – Strut your stuff and dish out your special Break Attack to ensure victory! Armed with their classic ability to transform, the Goddesses gain additional stat bonuses that enhance their attacks and lay waste to any enemy!

Put a +2 Str Ring On It – Strengthen your Goddesses by utilizing Skills and Abilities that can be unlocked with weapons, armors, or accessories! Strategically assign Skills and rearrange your abilities for each battle.
