Compile Hert has announced (via Dengeki OnlineHyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 Plus.

The new game is being developed for PlayStation 4, and its set for a release sometime this spring in Japan.

The game is naturally an upgraded version of the title that originally was ported and enhanced for PS Vita – which itself was a remake of the original Hyperdimension Neptunia that launched back on the PlayStation 3.

Further details weren’t confirmed.

    This really should’ve been the whole trilogy rather than a single game. They are going overboard with these remakes.

  • Eldhin Shichiou

    A Remaster of a remake

  • Mechonis

    Fuck off with your shitty game. Try making it good for once

  • ActivistZero

    Yo Dawg, we heard you like remakes so we made a remake of a remake.

    In all seriousness I’m gonna wait and see what gets added before I consider getting this or not

    Not bad, id probably get it, and i’m sure the following 2 will come as well soon after.

    It better be a port to the VIIR engine and not just the Vita version running at native resolution (what the PC port was).

  • CrusaderEsper

    If this doesn’t allow you to have 4 characters in your active party, they have failed. That said, I’m not sure I really want to play through this game a third time for a third system… even if Rebirth 1 was a near complete remake.

  • Matz

    Great, now I will leave the game with only one Trophy left in both Vita and PS4 (You know which one)

  • MusouTensei

    I’ve only ever played the original version of the 1st game and never bothered with rebirth as it wasn’t released on console so far, so I might pick this up.

  • TsukuyomiMagi99

    Hopefully they keep the script for Rebirth 1 for this remake best of the three.

  • So a port of the PC version.

  • risingfirez

    so its a remastered version of a remaked game… ok

  • RPG

    I bought Re;Birth 1 for the Vita late last year, because I found it cheap, and I have not gotten around to trying the Nep series yet. I still have not played my Vita copy yet so, naaaaaaaaah, I think I will pass. Lord knows my Vita needs more love anyway.

    Why would they re remake the worst Neptunia game?

  • SLoWMoTIoN🥑

    He isn’t wrong. The first game had the weakest cast, story and same re used assets (even the remake) we have seen since the beginning. It also isn’t tied to the other games at all.

  • TsukuyomiMagi99

    I was referring to the English localisation since it was the closest to the original script and didn’t have meme filled dialogue.

  • Nep Power

    it’s a good franchise you prickface
