Idea Factory Announces Megadimension Neptunia VIIR Release Date

Nep_V2R (7)

There’s something charming about the fourth-wall breaking Neptunia franchise. Whether it’s the series showing the girls running about completing quests, commenting on the real-world gaming industry or even their very own take on their franchise, the girls of the series are always up to something fun. Starting May 8, 2018, the girl will be making their return to the PlayStation 4 and for the first-time-ever the PlayStation VR.

Review: Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online – Let’s Go Online

Battle (7)


Pros:
+Controls are straightforward and welcoming to all new players
+Party system is easily learnable and allows for quite a few different party make-ups
+Multiplayer is a blast when a party can be formed

Cons:
-Story based objectives can be hard to follow and can be confusing for players to track.
-Framerate dips are extremely problematic during missions on Logi Mountain
-Side-quests are extremely predictable but must be completed multiple times.

Pros:
+Astonishing use of audio and visual approaches, helping immerse players
+Combat scenarios are fun and at times quite difficult
+A nice change of pace compared to Compile Hearts’ previous titles
+Fun and traditional gameplay using normal dungeon-crawling experiences

Cons:
–At times, the game seems to try hard, and seem rather “edgy” when using controversial approaches such as undressing characters
-Over-sensualizes the idea of self-harm to help heal party members out of their “Berserk” style state.
-Third-person gameplay would have been astonishing to have had in the games gameplay mechanics


 

For the PlayStation Vita, 2017 seems to be one of its biggest years. We’ve seen it get some admirable titles ranging from Tokyo Xandu, to the enigmatic and well scripted Utawarerumono: The Mask of Truth, to the interesting, and once-completed, enigmatic Caligula Effect. It’s been a year that Sony should take notice of when it comes to the PlayStation Vita and it’s third party support that keeps the handheld afloat, but that’s not to mention the many other games the handheld has received in recent days.
