The Goddesses of Gameindustri are on a new adventure in a new dimension: the land of Vtubers! The latest update to Neptunia Virtual Stars‘ official website introduces a duo of new virtual idols to help you on your quest to save Planet Emote: the scythe-wielding Vice and mage Licht! These two join the Gameindustri Goddesses and Vtubers You and Me in a hack-and-slash entry in the long-running series.
Idea Factory describes the V-Idols:
Vice is part of a virtual unit formed with her partner, Licht. Their contrasting personalities, that of a devil and angel respectively, are part of their charm. Though at times she can be a bit of a tyrant, she has a heart of gold. Whenever Vice is at a disadvantage, she loses confidence and looks like she’s about to cry. She plans to take over the world by becoming an idol.
She fights with her scythe, which can be tricky in close quarters. Swing the scythe to hack down enemies, or throw it like a boomerang at nearby foes. A woman of many talents!
Licht is part of a virtual unit formed with her partner, Vice. Their contrasting personalities, that of a devil and angel respectively, are part of their charm. She is known for her peaceful aura. Her embrace is as sweet as an angel’s, and she positions herself as the older sister of the duo. Unbeknownst to most, she’s something of a sadist, and enjoys toying with Vice’s impressionable brain from time to time.
She is a mage, with a staff that casts spells from a distance. Use special spells on top of long-distance attacks. Move around the battlefield to deal damage from far away with spellbinding precision. Her range certainly comes in handy!
While Vtubers in the game were kidnapped by the Antis in order to get rid of Planet Emote’s content, V-Idols are virtual idols from another dimension to help save the planet. Feel free to check out Vice and Licht in a brand new batch of screenshots in our gallery!
