Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory lands in N. America Mar. 12, 2013, Europe Mar. 15


Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory and its consoles personified as busty women are coming to North America on March 12, 2013. The third game in the oddball RPG series is also coming to Europe on March 15, matching the target date NIS America told us earlier this year. That bodes well for Persona 4 Golden hitting its European target date of February 22.

NIS also released the above trailer, which showcases the game's CPU ladies to a backdrop of very chirpy J-pop. It also reveals that the game features a 'transforming robot,' one that looks like a chibi version of something you'd see on Power Rangers.

About the game:
Several years after preventing Arfoire's revival, Gamindustri has remained at peace. The
CPUs and their younger sisters have been enjoying their quiet lives for a while... Then one
day, the CPU of Planeptune-Neptune-is sent to another dimension. This new
dimension feels very much like her own...except it has only progressed to the
Gamindustri of the 1980s. In this dimension, a group of villains calling themselves the
"Seven Sages" are trying to create a world free from the rule of CPUs. With help from her
new friends, including that dimension's CPU of Planeptune-Plutia-Neptune begins her
quest to protect a totally different Gamindustri in her brand-new adventure!
Key features:
Dynamic Combat: Freely move units in battle to tackle foes! Set up your own combos, fill
up the EXE Drive gauge, and then deal "massive damage" with your finishing attacks!
Scout System: Send out Scouts to explore and gather information on dungeons! Level
them up so they can find things you may have missed on your adventure!
Flag System: Break or repair "flag" triggers in dungeons to activate different events when
your Scouts return from exploring! This can change enemy spawns or reveal new items!
Create Game Discs: Obtain blank discs and burn different types of data onto them to
access new abilities! With the right combinations, you may even make a Godly Game! It's
your chance to craft your own AAA title for Neptune and her friends to equip!
