Two more PC Vita games created by Idea Factory and Compile Heart: Megatagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies and Trillion 1,000,000,000,000: God of Destruction, are headed to to PC via Steam this fall. The news comes via an announcement Idea Factory International made this morning.  Both Trillion and Megatagmension released earlier this year for PS Vita, adding to a fall release portfolio that is already packed across two different platforms, on top of a beta for Monster Monpiece that was announced last week ahead of another Fall PC release. It also seems that a PC port is in the works for Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls, judging by an ESRB rating for the game on PC discovered earlier

So far, specific dates have not been announced, but Idea Factory International has typically announced release dates on PC ports when they’re deemed ready, and usually a few weeks before the actual date. This was the case even with Megadimension Neptunia VII, their most recent Steam release, and a flagship game for the company.

Megatagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies, a spinoff of the Neptunia series was the first to feature online multiplayer, and was released mid Spring during early May.  It featured the usual Neptunia goddesses in a archetypal Japanese high school setting, with Blanc taking the protagonist spot, well, one of them. A population crisis has threatened the school with closure. One day, a zombie infestation breaks out while Neptune, serving as the president of the film club, is filming her own zombie flick with the assistance of Blanc’s sisters, Rom and Ram, in order to help the school gain publicity in hopes to avoiding its pending closure. To kill two birds with one stone, they use the real zombies to finish the flick, but Blanc insists that she must write and direct it.

Megatagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies serves as a sort of mechanical successor to the earlier action RPG spinoff Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed. It features a few improvements and remixes over the action based combat system and adds a new way of boosting character stats with each level.  It features the same ten characters from U, with three new characters from other series entries in tow: Peashy and Plutia from Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory (also featured in the Re;Birth 3 remake), and Uzume Tennouboshi from VII.

In the strategy RPG Trillion 1,000,000,000,000: God of Destruction, players assume the role of Zeabos, ruler of the underworld who just got utterly annihilated by a being known only as Trillion, courtesy of his trillion point HP count, who is utterly bent on destroying the underworld. After being resurrected by the necromancer Faust, Zeabos has to train one of seven female demon Overlord Candidates representing the Seven Deadly Sins to defeat Trillion. All the while, he must build relationships with them, with better relationships bestowing more power and survivability to the Candidate in question. When Trillion wakes again to wreck havoc, it will be up to your Overlord Candidate to take him on, or pay the ultimate price (permadeath). It was rated earlier this year for PC, and our review on the game has further details on it if you want to learn more.

Typical enhancements over Vita ports to Steam released by Idea Factory International include full 1920×1080 graphic support, keyboard/mouse support alongside support for various gamepads. Whether there will be more deluxe edition content in a similar vein to Megadimension Neptunia VII is yet to be seen.
