Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3: V Generation is an enhanced remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory which was released on the Playstation 3 back in 2013. This game is a follow-up to Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 and Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation, and features a new take on the world of Gameindustri when times were simpler and different!
Just in case this is the first time you’ve heard of either Hyperdimension Neptunia or “Gamindustri”, take note that “Gamindustri” is a parody of our own video game industry (Planeptune is for SEGA, Lowee is for Nintendo, Lastation is for PlayStation and Leanbox is for Xbox). The Hyperdimension Neptunia series doesn’t take itself too seriously, and conversations often lead to very funny cut-scenes (that’s the strength of the franchise)!
So what did we think of this third Hyperdimension Neptunia Vita release? Read below to find out!
Idea Factory International sent us early review copies of the latest installment of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, titled: Re;Birth3: V Generation. If you missed either the first or second Re;Birth game, this one can be tackled as a stand-alone title because the first hour or so recaps the events of the previous games and gives a tutorial on the game’s controls.
If you’re new to the series, this game features a pretty sharp turn-based RPG battle system set in Gamindustri, a satire of our own game industry, featuring main characters which are the personification of the consoles.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2 is an enhanced remake of the Playstation 3 game Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 that released back in 2012, and its a direct follow-up to Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 which we reviewed last summer. The Hyperdimension Neptunia games take place in the world of Gamindustri, which parodies our own video game industry, and the main characters are the sisters of the CPUs of Re;Birth 1. While this game is meant as a sequel, it can totally be played as a standalone title because the story doesn’t rely too much on the previous game, and the first hour recaps the events of Re;Birth 1.
Idea Factory International has let us try Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2 before its worldwide launch on January 27th! If you already played Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 (which we reviewed – and loved – a few months ago), you’ll feel right at home since the battle system is pretty much the same.
