Manufacturer's Description

What is Neptunne?

Neptunne is about transformation and anime style battles. You take on the role of Neptunne who is a human form video game hardware to battle the evil illegal hardware. Both the main characters and sub characters are either a hardware or company that has taken a human form.

Flow of Game

  1. Story scene to set the setting of the game. Here you will find out what your mission is.
  2. After the story scene you will prepare for battle. Here you can change your characters, stats, weapons, and skills.
  3. Once you enter the dungeon you will encounter enemies. At the end of the dungeon a powerful boss will stand in your way.
  4. Battle is done in a turn based style. You and the enemy will take turns in making an action.
Transformation

Transformation is a big part of Neptunne, but you cannot transform without enough energy. It’s like Power Rangers where you will fight in normal human mode first and when the time comes you transform in the super human form.

Changing weapons will not only change your stats, but also your appearance. Your transformed character’s appearance can also change by changing the processor unit she is equipping.

After transformation your stats and skills will improve greatly. Also this is when you can use and view your custom skill visuals that will be explained next.

Custom Skill System

By pressing ☐,O, Δ, or Χ button in a certain order or repeatedly you can do a combo attack with the expense of AP points (AKA magic points). The combination of the skill can be decided by you and also the name of the skill can be made you as will.

How To Make Your Combo

Each character has a certain set of skills like “Flame Slash” that you acquire as you become stronger. When making your custom combo you will assign these skills to each button and during combat you can either press the according button to pull off that move. If you press the buttons in sequence it becomes the combo skill that you have created and inflicts more damage than pulling off the skill in random sequence.

Combos With Gun Shots

Like close combat weapons, guns can do combo attacks. One major difference though is by switching the bullets your gun shots will carry a different elemental effect. Depending on your enemy you may want to change your bullets to fight more effectively.

Image Editing

In Neptunne you can use images in your PS3 photo album to be the cover art for your skills. The image can be edited and stored in game.

Your edited image will appear when you cast the skill!

Symbols and emblems on your characters can be edited as will. Like the skill image you can use your images in the photo album. Simply choose, edit, and confirm the change.

Summoning

During battle you can summon your favorite classic video game characters from Sega, Nippon IchiSoftware, Gust, Idea factory, and Compile Heart. Many of these classic characters can inflict insane amount of damage.

Hyperdimension Neptunia, the next Jrpg up from NIS and Compile Heart, in all im just glad someone is kind enough to be bringing these games over here to Europe in the first place.

If you have ever played Trinity Universe, i think your pretty clued up as to what to expect with Neptunia. Relying mostly on its characters, skits and humour, these are not the RPG's to recommend to anyone bothered by anime cliches or by limited gameplay/plot development.

A good deal of your time in this game will be spent watching skits between the character portraits as they attempt to amuse you with thier banter, anyone familiar with Disgaea's humour will be right at home here. The one, unique thing this game does have going for it though is the fact that is one big **** take at the current console wars and full of gaming related jokes in general, if your a big, and long term collector/gamer you will only appriciate this more.

The gameplay doesnt differ all too differently from Trinity Universe, the battle system is simple to start with, but eventually becomes quite involving by use of long button combos and exagerated attacks as your girls obliterate whoever they mean to.

Its an all female cast, heavily anime inspired and does a perfect job at mocking almost everything game/anime related, if your up for having a good laugh, arent a sourpuss and put off by its style and want some addictive, dungeon grinding gameplay, this is the game for you.

A new way of gaming for me, as a friend of mine got me into it a while ago. Wanted to try it out and see if it would be my cup of tea. Getting there, from time to time. Soon enough, will I play it more. Apart from that though, it is in my good books. No negative reviews.

So many people have criticised this game because it's "not serious" I will agree this game isn't for serious gamers but it is a laugh and if you don't want to play a serious game go for hyperdimension neptunia you will be in stitches from all the jokes and crude humour

Good game with beautiful colorful graphics. The writing is good and humorous and the characters are very cute. The english voice acting is also really good. A bit rough on the edges, the sequel is much better:)

This game has been mauled by critics and I don't know why. Its a great and crucially fun game with some obvious set backs that prevent it from glory.

The story follows you Neptune one of the goddesses from Celestia who overlook the lands of Gamindustri. The lands are Planeptune (Sega Neptune), Lastation (Playstation 3), Lowee (Wii) and Leanbox (Xbox 360). You Neptune are banished from Celestia by the other goddesses and lose your memory. You then partake in a quest to save a Tome called Histoire with a party of characters you meet along the way. As stories go I think its pretty original due to the Console War concept of the game. There are plenty of references to notable games throughout the game from Mario, FF, Resident Evil and an array of Sega franchises. Some parts are quite humorous with mixed voice acting. There could be more though considering what the scope of the concept would allow looks wise.

As a JRPG there are conventions from the past that appear such as heavy reams of text and random battles. I had no particular problem with random battles apart from the few occasions when trying to leave a dungeon and running into them which was the only issue. This is an outdated mechanic in modern games though and has been removed from the sequel. Also the game will take anywhere from 40-80 hours for main story completion and extra quests.

The battle system itself is quite unique. It works around the concept of combos which you can alter anytime outside battle. You have a AP system and each move and combo cost a varying amount of AP. Once you run out its the next characters turn. You can link moves together to gain a slight boost in AP and the main objective of this system is to find out what works best with the AP you have.
