Yes, Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1, a PlayStation Vita remake of Compile Heart’s PS3 RPG, will be released in the West. We’re not surprised at the announcement, but rather who it came from. NIS America has been the caretakers of Neptunia and even signed on to publish Hyperdimension Neptunia PP, an idol game.
Instead of NIS America, Idea Factory International will publish Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 in North America and Europe. The game is slated for release in late summer and details about how it will be distributed will be announced later.
Hyerpdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 uses the battle system and the disc remake system from Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. Characters like Tekken and CyberConnect2 are in Neptunia’s first story too. Compile Heart also made a new event scenes and a new ending for the Vita version.
