Developers Idea Factory/COMPILE HEART and publisher IDEA FACTORY INTERNATIONAL have announced that their action role-playing game title ‘NEPTUNIA: SISTERS VS SISTERS’ will launch on Xbox consoles on the 16th of April.

The game will retail for $39.99 USD for the standard edition and £49.99/€54.99 for the Standard/Day One Edition of the game. Digital pre-orders are available on the Xbox Store and physical pre-orders can be found on IFI’s US and UK/Europe shoppe—the latter having exclusive goodies detailed below with the Day One Edition. The Amazon listing that was reported earlier will likely open up later on.

Per the press release:


In Neptunia™: Sisters VS Sisters, you play as the Goddess Candidates, led by Nepgear, who awaken from a two-year-long slumber to a Gamindustri that has been upended by a treacherous threat called the Trendi Phenomenon. While they’ve been sleeping, the citizens of Gamindustri have turned to using a new device called the rPhone as their main method of communication as they’ve been unable to leave their homes while monsters lurk outside.

Now, work together with friends both new and old to prevent the total destruction of Gamindustri as we know it!


While the Goddesses were out responding to a distress call from the faraway PC Continent, Nepgear and the other Candidates were sent to investigate an abandoned laboratory.

It was there that they found the “Ashen Goddess”, who trapped them in a deep sleep capsule. By the time they awoke, 2 years had already passed.

The latest smartphone, the “rPhone”, dominates the market.

Neptune has been missing since her mission to the PC Continent, and in the absence of its Goddess and Candidate, Planeptune was ravaged by a strange new phenomenon, the Trendi Outbreaks.

Suddenly finding herself robbed of home and family, Nepgear falls into a deep depression.

This is a story about finding hope in the midst of despair, and the rebirth of a Goddess in the wake of destruction.

Key Features:

  • C-C-C-Combo Maker! – As you make your way around the lands of Gamindustri, you’ll encounter a multitude of enemies – it’s time to fight! Employ combos and chain your attacks together in real-time. Take control of the battlefield in a unique tactical action battle system!
  • Get the Planeptune Look – Throughout the game you’ll discover fun accessories to deck out and customize your party members. After completing the game for the first time, you can show off your style in the new Photo Mode! You’ll also unlock two BRAND NEW characters created by two legendary game developers – Higurashi from Ryukishi07 and Shanghai Alice from ZUN!
  • Do You Hear the People Chirp? – In the wake of the devastation wrought by the Trendi Phenomenon, the vast majority of the population has turned to the rPhone for all manner of daily life, including communication. On your journey, connect to the Chirper social network to take on a variety of side quests put out by those in need and earn special rewards!
  • Match Game ’23 – On the battlefield you can have three party members out at a time. Match up your team members with a partner for stat increases and elemental bonuses. The stronger the bond, the better the bonus!

I’ve been told this is very much a Kingdom Hearts III releasing on Xbox before the original games situation…. Is this true?

If so, what the hell.:sweat_smile:

It’s a spinoff, most of the games in the series are. There are only 4 mainline games, Rebirth 1-3 and V-II (That’s Victory 2, not 7 lol)

I bounced off the first game after like 3 hours, wasn’t liking it, but I do like the characters and world, so I kinda took in a lot through osmosis and sometimes just Youtubing cutscenes.

All you’d really need to know is that it’s about video game consoles personified as moe anime girls and they get into hijinks that sometimes mirror the current events of the video game industry (in this game’s case, smartphone gaming dominance. Of course, these events will be coming from a JP dev perspective). There’s not really a super important over-arching narrative, though I don’t think this game makes much attempt to -introduce- the characters.

This is the first game in the series to run on Unity so that’s why I think it’s getting ported (straight, easy port), and that it’s being done through ID@Xbox.


I mean hey I’ll take it lol weird jrpg is always welcome haha
