Idea Factory International has announced that it will bring over Brave Neptunia: World! Universe! Pay Attention!! Ultimate RPG Declaration!! to North America and Europe as Super Neptunia RPG: Legend of the Seven Different Names... just without that or any subtitle. It will release this fall on PS4 and Switch and will include dual audio with English and Japanese voice-overs and English and French text support.

We covered the original details on Super Neptunia's story and characters in this article, with the only major change being that the ruling organization is now called "Bombyx Mori" instead of "Silkworm." Luckily, Idea Factory gave us some new details on the gameplay:

  • Old School Dungeons! – Explore gorgeously painted, interactive dungeons in a style inspired by classic gaming titles.
  • Follow the Leader! – Enter turn-based battles where the party’s attack style changes based on the battle leader. Switch leaders on the fly, transform mid-battle, and use elemental attacks to maximize your team’s strategy!
  • Save Gamindustri! – In a time where retro gaming and 3D graphics are at polar ends, this story delves headfirst into the debate for a self-aware ribbing of gaming culture.
  • 2D Comes to Life! – The hand-drawn art of Neptunia series artist Tsunako is brought to life by Artisan Studios, showing the characters in a whole new way!
