In 20XX the world is one again threatened by Arfoire (called Majicon in Japanese). 80% of elementary school kids worship Arforie. Shops are withering and people hunger for creativity. The world of Gameindustri is a lawless mess when three sisters representing handheld systems appear.
The lead characters in Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 are all new. is Nepgear (pictured) is the Purple Sister. Uni is the Black Sister. Rom and Ram are the White Sisters. Perhaps because they are handhelds, all of the characters in Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 look younger than stars of Neptunia.
Compile Heart says Mk-2 will have improved graphics and a revised battle system. You can make parties with up to four characters and combine attacks using the Lily system. The game industry (the business, not the place) evolved too and everyone is using real time chat. Here’s where you’ll see references to video game icons like El Shaddai, Mario, Segata Sanshiro, Toro (the Sony cat), and Tales.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 is in development for PlayStation 3 and slated for an August release in Japan.
