Hyperdimension Neptunia: Sisters Vs Sisters launches for PS4 and PS5 on April 21, 2022 in Japan
Compile Heart has revealed a new Neptunia game titled Hyperdimension Neptunia: Sisters Vs Sisters in Japan. As indicated by last week's teaser, this title will focus on the CPU Candidates Nepgear, Uni, Rom, and Ram. It will be available for PlayStation 4 and 5 on April 21, 2022 in Japan.
Unlike the recent PS5 title Neptunia reVerse, Sisters Vs Sisters will be a brand-new game with a new story featuring Nepgear and her friends. It will also have real-time action gameplay with free map exploration.
You can check out our translation of the game's details right after the jump.
When the Four Goddesses went to the Peecee continent, the CPU Candidates were sent to a lab where a gray goddess put them to sleep for 2 years. When they wake up, they find Gamindustri's market share is now dominated by a smartphone called Magiphone.
The so-called 'Buzzool phenomenon' caused a lot of monsters to appear along with Planetune's fall and Neptune's disappearance. Nepgear falls into despair for losing her sister and place to return.
The story will see the CPU Candidates fighting to restore the popularity of portable consoles from smartphone dominance.
The game will have an open field where you can freely explore cities inside Planetune, as well as the Planetower. The PS5 version will also support Haptic Feedback.
The combat system will have real-time battles combining action with tactics. The party will consist of 3 characters, and the player can directly control one of them at a time. The game will have the following two primary actions:
- Combo Skill: Normal action attacks executed with a button. After launching this, you can switch to another character to trigger a Link Chain that increases damage dealt on enemies.
- Tactical Skill: Special action unique to each character, launched by spending a specific gauge. The gauge refills over time, so you can switch to another character while waiting for it to fill again.
The EXE Drive feature also returns in this game. When activated, it will temporarily buff the character, change their looks, and launch Combo Skills automatically.
