How to Use Suggested Items in Neptunia Game Maker R:Evolution

One of the first ways you can use items in battle in Neptunia Game Maker R:Evolution is through the suggested item feature. Occasionally, when a character is in trouble with their health, a party member may request to use an item automatically. This is indicated by a message on the left-hand side of the screen and a voice clip asking if the character can use something.

To approve this, press the left stick, and the item will be used automatically. This can be a useful quick option in the heat of battle if you need some quick heals, although it’s not always reliable.

How to Use Items Manually in Battle

While the automatic item feature is useful, there are plenty of reasons why you would want to use items manually instead. For instance, characters will automatically use the weakest healing item available to you and only one character. In addition, the feature doesn’t always pop up when it’s required, so knowing how to use items yourself is important.

You can only use items in battle when a party member has a full TP bar. This is the purple bar located next to their health. Once this is full, press the menu button to access your items. Once you’ve selected an item, you can use the shoulder buttons to cycle through your party members. The battle will pause while you’re on the menu.

Similarly, if you access the menu and your current character doesn’t have a full TP bar, the shoulder buttons can also be used before selecting an item. This allows you to cycle through all your party members to find someone who can use items at that moment.

Neptunia Game Maker R:Evolution is out now for PS5, PS4, and Switch.
