Idea Factory just announced the release dates for the upcoming music-based hack ‘n’ slash game Neptunia Virtual Stars.
Neptunia Virtual Stars for PlayStation 4 launches on March 2 in North America and March 5 in Europe. The PS4 release dates are for both the physical and digital versions of the game. Steam is getting a digital-only release on March 29.
Both the PS4 and Steam versions will only include Japanese voiceover options as well as English subtitles. The Steam version also includes Japanese and Traditional Chinese subtitles.
Idea Factory announced Neptunia Virtual Stars last June. Here’s more on the game’s story:
In a dimension called Virtualand, the virtual planets that exist within it contain an extraordinary ability to produce a commodity known as content. Of these celestial bodies is a tranquil planet known as EMO. This was the latest target of a nefarious group whose sole purpose is to destroy content created by virtual planets… Anti. Their decimation of EMO has left its citizens hopeless.
Just then, VTubers, popular live-streamers from Earth, were suddenly transported to Virtualand. Because VTubers possess an affinity for creating good content, they were obvious targets for Anti, who quickly captured them and turned them into data pockets known as V Cubes.
In other Idea Factory news, the company announced that the 3D action-shooter Azur Lane: Crosswave is getting free crossover DLC on Nintendo Switch. The limited-time download includes a new playable character, Neptune from the Neptunia series.
