Idea Factory International have announced the western release date for action Vtuber RPG Neptunia Virtual Stars.
As previously reported, the CPUs have been hurled into Virtualand- which is being invaded by aliens attempting to steal the digital world’s content and Virtual YouTubers. Players fight in action RPG combat, using the game’s various mechanics to keep refilling their MP and weaken foes. During boss battles, bosses become weaker and stronger depending on what part of the background music is playing.
Neptunia Virtual Stars launches in the west on March 2nd on PlayStation 4 (in North America, March 5th in Europe), and March 29th on Windows PC (via Steam). Both will feature Japanese voice-overs and English subtitles.
