A Whirlwind Presentation Of Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U

By Spencer . June 30, 2014 . 11:40pm

Tamsoft is developing an action game for the Neptunia series and this video of Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U gives us a look at Neptune’s whirlwind attack. The PlayStation Vita game feels like the developer’s Onechanbara or perhaps Omega Force’s Dynasty Warriors series.


Using the Dual Battle system, players select two characters and can switch between them right on the battlefield. Taking a cue from their work on the Senran Kagura series, Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U has costume breaks that trigger after a character takes so much damage. When this happens you’ll take more damage, but your critical attack rate goes up. Players can also transform by using an Exe Drive which temporarily makes your character more powerful.


This trailer also has a glimpse of Famitsu and Dengekiko, two video game magazines turned characters in Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U.


Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U comes out on August 28 for PlayStation Vita.

  • Alex Cattaneo

    Ha yea…i still buy it thou

  • ThirdChildZKI

    It’s looking good! I need a good hack and slash game for the Vita, for those really stressful days. Combine that with the Neptunia series, and consider me sold!

  • TheGioG

    So Compile Heart-chan and Tamsoft-senpai bumped into each other one glorious day… *THUD*
    Compile Heart-chan: “Kyaa! You got Senran Kagura in my Neptunia!”
    Tamsoft-senpai: “I did?! YOU got Neptunia in MY Senran Kagura!”

    Their love child would become a fine companion for PS Vita owners everywhere. And all was well with the world.

    • Jimmy Bump

      This is how baby is formed. The more you know

    • Linhua

      T^T … it was so beautiful…

  • Armageddon

    I wonder if their CPU mode clothes will get torn aswell(That be awesome thinks to myself XD).

    The game’s good by the way hope they have the option to turn off the costume break scene kinda breaks they rythm for a fast-paced game

    • Christopher C

      that’s already confirmed.

  • Kornelious

    Just amazing. This game looks like tons of fun, awesome, boundless, goddess Action!……..(And not the kind your thinking of you perv :P) I hope this doesn’t take to long to get localize! :D

    And if !f International is doing it (Who i still have doubts about) then hopefully they will make a Limited Edition for it……but I can’t see the future now can I? X(

  • I really like the look of that but may hold out for a west release as it seems the 1st to have so far (well Neptunia rebirth coming)

  • Zalin

    FUDGE BASKETS!!! I need this game RIGHT NOW!

  • Chris Evan Jonance Ingeniero

    Whenever i see a title with U on it… i expect it to be also in the WiiU… ._.

    • ShinNeoGranzon

      I know. Until today I thought it was a WiiU game and ignored it because I don’t have a WiiU. I clicked on this article on accident and decided to watch the video on a whim, so when I saw the Vita in the video I was all “holy crap, this was a Vita game the whole time!?”. This game now has my interest.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Ok, after seeing this, now I want it~ *_*

  • Siery

  • I hope we don’t need to gather 50,000 signatures for this!

    • Anime10121

      Its IF’s biggest series in the west, theres no way in hell were gonna miss it :)

    • Kayriss Wins

      Hey if that Idol simulator made it there should be doubt that this will!

  • Dang, that looked more fun than I thought it would!

  • Junko Enoshima

    That looks….really dull. The gameplay seems to be really slow.

  • Josh A. Stevens

    Well…that’s an unfortunate title.

  • Aristides

    Can’t wait to see this come to our shores X3!

  • DeAndre Atchison

    I found reason number 3 to get a vita now.

      • DeAndre Atchison

  • Vash bane

    her got deep after changing? well I do love me some musou type games. and this look alright.

  • alixraen

    Great work, Tamsoft. Now this game is going to be known more for the costume break and not much else. If I wanted that junk, I’d play SK.

  • The breeze from this whirlwind feels excellent lol =^_^=
