Today Compile Heart released a new trailer of the recently-announced Hyperdimension Neptunia spin-off JRPG Hyperdimension Neptunia: GameMaker R:Evolution.
The trailer focuses on the opening cutscene, which introduces the characters that we'll meet in the game, both familiar and new, and also features the theme song "Dream On" performed by Ayane.
You can check it out below, alongside the previous reveal.
Hyperdimension Neptunia: GameMaker R:Evolution releases in Japan on August 10, 2023, for PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. It includes a management part in which you have to lead a game development studio in which you'll develop disks that enhance the characters' actions and skills in combat.
You'll be able to develop better disks as your company becomes larger and more capable. Battles are fought with 4-character parties including elements the series is known for, like EXE Drive and goddess transformation.
At the moment, no announcement has been made for the west and we'll probably have to wait a bit longer, as Idea Factory International tends to wait at least a few months before announcing localizations. Of course, we'll let you know as soon as a western release is announced. Considering precedent, it should be a matter of "when" more than "if."
If you're unfamiliar with the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, it's basically Compile Heart's flagship franchise, having debuted all the way back in 2010 and counting about 20 games between mainline ones, remakes, spin-offs like this, and even crossovers like the recent Neptunia X Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars.
