Senran Ninnin Ninja Taisen Neptune releases on August 26 in Japan
Compile Heart has announced the release date for Senran Ninnin Ninja Taisen Neptune: Shoujo-tachi no Kyouen, which will be available in Japan on August 26. This information comes a month after the initial reveal of the collaboration title between the Neptunia and Senran Kagura franchises.
Tamsoft, the developers of Senran Kagura, have previously worked on games in the Neptunia franchise: Hyperdimension Neptunia: Action Unleashed, and MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune vs. Zombies. Senran Ninnin Ninja Taisen Neptune: Shoujo-tachi no Kyouen will be the 22nd game released in the Neptunia franchise.
The latest issue of Famitsu magazine exclusively revealed more details on this game. The Four Goddesses from the Neptunia series will come from the Konpa (Compile Heart) faction and get new weapons as well as Japanese-styled attires. Purple Heart will wield a katana, Black Heart will use sais, White Heart with a staff, and Green Heart using a double-edged blade.
The first four characters confirmed from the Senran Kagura franchise are Asuka, Homura, Yumi, and Miyabi; they are all described as coming from the Hanipa (Honey Parade Works) faction. The magazine also revealed the design of Yuuki, the brand-new original protagonist who will appear in this game.
The gameplay system will see a combination of action and RPG. The action part will consist of normal attacks launched by continuously pressing a button and Ninjutsu Skills that consume a filled gauge. The RPG aspect will have players send characters to dungeons to do battles and collect treasures. The playable characters can also level up by gaining experience points, and their Ninjutsu Skills can also be customized.
Pre-orders for Senran Ninnin Ninja Taisen Neptune will be opened in Japan on April 22. In the meantime, you can watch the teaser trailer that was published shortly after the game was revealed at the March 2021 Game Live Japan stream right below.
