Neptunia Virtual Stars will launch physically and digitally for PlayStation 4 on March 2 in North America and March 5 in Europe, and for PC via Steam on March 29 worldwide, publisher Idea Factory International and developer Compile Heart announced.
Both the PlayStation 4 and PC versions will only include Japanese voice-overs, as well as English subtitles. The PC version will also include Japanese and Traditional Chinese subtitles.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Enter Virtualand—a digital world that exists alongside the networks of various dimensions. Within Virtualand lies the planet Emote—a planet faced with extinction due to the maleficent group of Content destroyers known as Antis.
In an act of desperation, the Digital Goddess of the planet Emote, Faira, sends a distress signal to other dimensions in hopes to find a savior of this planet.
And the saviors that were reached? The rising Vtuber stars, Me and You, members of MEWTRAL, as well as the Goddesses of Gamindustri: Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert!
Can MEWTRAL and the Goddesses band together and save the planet Emote from complete destruction?
