Megadimension Neptunia VII arrives on Steam this summer
Idea Factory International has announced that Megadimension Neptunia VII, the latest mainline entry in the Hyperdimension series, will lift its PlayStation 4 exclusive status and find a new home on Steam this summer.
The company has evidently found a lot of success there after releasing all three Re;Birth entries, Neptunia U, and Hyperdevotion Noire on the service already.
The Steam version of the game will retain all of the features found in its console release, including English and Japanese dual audio and the ability to run at 60FPS. Additionally, all of the downloadable content released for the game will be available to purchase. You can read the full rundown in the press release provided by IFI below.
G.C. 2015— Gamindustri has entered a precarious season known as the CPU Shift Period. During this time of social unrest, deprecating rumors about the CPUs have begun to saturate Gamindustri. Neptune and the others worry the citizens will soon call for new leaders to replace the them and that their rule will end.
In these critical moments for Planeptune, Neptune and Nepgear mysteriously disappear. Their destination: a divergent world, nearing its catastrophic end, called the Zero Dimension. They encounter the last remaining CPU of this world, Uzume Tennouboshi, who is desperately waging a lonely battle against a colossal evil known as the Dark CPU.
Will Neptune and Nepgear be able to work together with Uzume in order to save Zero Dimension from tragedy? So begins a new adventure for Neptune...
