'Super Neptunia RPG' (ALL) Gets Release Date, PC Deluxe Edition - Screens

Super Neptunia RPG is a side-scrolling RPG that brings the characters of the self-referential Neptunia series to life in a whole new way.

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?

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?

Super Neptunia RPG is headed for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch (physically and digitally) on June 25 (June 28 in Europe), while the PC (Steam) version will launch on June 20.

The new screenshots showcase different battle formations players can set during battle, such as Strike, Magic, Support, and Heal. There is also a couple of system UI screenshots that show off the skills that you can assign to each formation, as well as the formation bonuses you can gain during battle. Players can also apply Abilities that can enable additional stat boosts to elemental resistances, vitality, and defense.
