'Hyperdimension Neptunia­ U: Action Unleashed' (Vita) Shows Off Gamindustri Gauntlet - Screens

Hyperdimension Neptunia­ U: Action Unleashed is a 3D action hack 'n' slash game featuring new playable characters, as well as customizable equipment and over-the-top skills.

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…

In the Gamindustri Gauntlet, you can choose from 18 characters (including the CPUs, CPU Candidates, their HDD forms, Dengekiko, and Famitsu) to fight in a tournament to prove who's the baddest of them all, earning special accessories when you win. Now's your chance to set up that Blanc vs. Vert grudge match you always wanted!

Key Features

  • Street brawling! For the first time ever, your favorite Neptunia characters will have to hack ‘n’ slash their way through waves of enemies in real time! In the free-roaming stages, you’ll get to create chain combos both on the ground and in the air.
  • 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!
