The game will be the first Hyperdimension Neptunia and Compile Heart game on PlayStation 5. An English live-stream is due later today at 10 a.m PT, and we shall update this article with additional information should any other information be revealed.
RPG Site reports that Compile Heart president Norihisa Kochiwa stated in the announcement video that there are multiple projects in the works.
You can find the Japanese announcement trailer below.
The announcement is part of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series’ 10th anniversary. The series began in 2010, taking place in the fantasy world of Gamindustri.
It is divided into four nations, ruled by four goddesses- or CPUs (Console Patron Unit). Each of these goddesses represented a gaming console at the time (PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Xbox, and the cancelled Sega Neptune). Each can also transform into their HDD form for more power.
In the first game, the four goddess fought against each other in the Console Wars for the faith of the citizens (or “Shares”) which keep them alive. However, the four soon become friends and team up against the numerous threats against Gamindustri, and even other worlds.
Games have typically included action or turn-based RPGs, fighting against parodies of game piracy, attempting to survive the coming of new games consoles, getting trapped in video games, or becoming idols. More goddesses also appeared, including those based on game publishers and developers. The series also got an anime in 2013.
We will keep you informed as we learn more.
Go! Go! 5D Game: Neptune re-Verse is coming soon to PlayStation 5.
