Idea Factory announces several titles during press event (Update: Trailers added)
Update 12/7/2015: After some issues, I finally managed to get the trailers uploaded. Sorry on the delay, and you can find each underneath the title of the appropriate game, before the description.
Idea Factory International has decided to wrap up this year by announcing several titles for the PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, PlayStation 4, and Steam. These titles, which you can find official descriptions of below (courtesy of the official press release), include MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies for PlayStation Vita and TV, Fairy Fencer F: Dark Advent Force for PlayStation 4, Monster Monpiece, Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed, and Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, these latter three set to release on Steam.
You will find art and screens inserted under each title, and I am working on getting the trailers up for those that have them. Unfortunately I’m experiencing technical difficulties with YouTube, but I will update this post when they successfully upload.
MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies (PS Vita, PS TV) – Spring 2016
Fight off zombie hordes with friends in the first multiplayer game in the Neptunia series, MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies for the PlayStation®Vita system and PlayStation®TV! Set in Gamicademi, Gamindustri’s academy for CPUs and CPU candidates, Blanc and friends must film a movie to save their school, fend off zombies, and look cute at the same time! Play with up to 4 friends or tag team with up to 4 characters, including new characters, Tamsoft and Uzume Tennouboshi, and familiar faces, Plutia, Peashy, Dengekiko, and Famitsu to Nep up some zombies! Additionally, you can stylize characters with accessories like glasses, eye patches, and masks to make sure you look extra cute while slaying!
Fairy Fencer F: Dark Advent Force (PS4) – Spring 2016
Fairy Fencer F is reborn as Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force for the PlayStation®4 system! Continue your adventure through three new story paths: The Goddess story, the Vile God story, and the Evil God story. Play as Fang and his gang as you face off against a new, evil organization, meet new fairies and fencers, and collect the furies scattered across the world. Each path leads to a different outcome, so choose wisely. Alongside new content, you can now have up to 6 characters on the battlefield at a time! That’s double the fairies and the fencing! With so many characters, players will be allowed to balance gameplay with three new difficulty settings: Easy, Normal, and Hard.
Monster Monpiece (Steam) – Spring 2016
These cards have heart! In the world of Yafaniel, humans and “monster girls” live an uneasy coexistence. You’ll train as May Esperio to become a master of these monster girls in strategic, card-based battle that features light RPG elements. Throw down with the enemy using your cards’ Skills and Potentials, and give their stats an extra boost with special bonuses. If you play your cards right you’ll collect over 100 monster girls to fight for you! You’ll get to level those ladies up with the First Crush ❤ Rub mode, which gives you a hands-on role in warming them up for battle!
Additionally, the updated PC port of Monster Monpiece will not have multiplayer support, however it will include all the original artwork featured in the Japanese release of the game.
Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed (Steam) – Spring 2016
Everyone’s favorite CPUs and CPU Candidates get brutal with their first foray into the 3D hack ‘n’ slash action! Joined by characters Dengekiko and Famitsu, they’ll clash with waves of enemies in free-roaming stages. Switch between two characters with the Dual System to bash down baddies and perform devastating special attacks, but spam too many specials or take too much damage and you’re liable to experience a “Costume Break,” shredding your defense but boosting your critical rate and EXE Drive Gauge!
Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart (Steam) – Spring 2016
A spinoff of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series that takes place in an alternate world known as “Gamarket,” featuring Noire as the main protagonist. This is the first strategy RPG in the series and boasts a bundle of new playable characters for your moe army, item customization, the relationship-boosted Lily System, and even a chance to see Gamarket’s hardest-working CPU relax a bit with the “Sim Noire” mode!
What do you hope to see in these games?
