The latest Neptunia game to be localized for Western audiences, Superdimension Neptunia VS Sega Hard Girls has been rated by the ESRB for PC. It was announced in April of 2016 that the spin-off game would be coming west in the fall. Originally available for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV this Neptunia game will be coming to PC for western audiences in the coming months.
Developed by a combination of Idea Factory, Compile Heart and Felistella for Sony devices Superdimension Neptunia VS Sega Hard Girls will soon be available for Windows PCs as well. The ESRB has recently released their rating of the title for PC and PS Vita as Teen. The “T” rating was given for fantasy violence, language and suggestive themes.
The ESRB rating summary explains,”This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of a goddess as she travels through time to save the past from destruction. As players explore dungeon-like environments across eras, they traverse platforms, collect items, and engage in turn-based combat with various enemies. Characters use swords, magic attacks, and blaster-like weapons to defeat robots, demons, and human characters. Combat is highlighted by frequent light effects and cries of pain. Some female characters wear low-cut outfits that display cleavage and jiggling breasts. One scene, involving a talking motorcycle, contains suggestive innuendo: “[Y]ou both get to ride me at the same time. . .Those people would probably beg to be ridden by you.” The words “sh*t” and “b*tch” appear in the dialogue.”
Superdimension Neptunia VS Sega Hard Girls is an RPG with a zany story that puts character IF in the protagonist’s seat. In this spin-off from the core Neptunia series the quirky and lovable goddess Neptune is turned into a motorcycle and it’s up to IF to travel through time and set the world right again. New characters joining this game’s cast include personifications of past Sega consoles such as the Sega Saturn and Mega Drive. Sega console characters from previous games will make an appearance along with what appears to be analogous personifications of the same consoles.
The game will be a similar style role-playing game to others in the Neptunia series with a few exceptions. This title will include a class system and some new abilities. Environments will also be more interactive requiring characters to jump, climb and crawl to collect rewards and get around.
Superdimension Neptunia VS Sega Hard Girls will be available in the west for PS Vita and Windows PCs fall 2016. Voice-overs will be available in English and Japanese with English subtitle options. The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
