Compile Heart has announced RPG Hyperdimension Neptunia: Sisters vs. Sisters (Choujigen Game Neptune: Sisters vs. Sisters) for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals. It will launch on April 21, 2022 in Japan for 8,580 yen. Limited and Digital Deluxe editions will also be available for 12,100 yen.
Hyperdimension Neptunia: Sisters vs. Sisters is produced and directed by Hikaru Yasui. It stars little sisters Nepgear, Uni, Rom, and Ram. The character models for the sisters are brand-new.
In battle, three party members fight in real-time, and the characters you are not controlling act on their own. You can also switch between characters. You can unleash combo skills, which can be activated at the press of a button and link with other characters; and tactical skills, which are unique actions that consume a dedicated gauge.
Fields can be freely walked around and explored. The PlayStation 5 version offers a greater sense of immersion via the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback functionality.
The story sees the little sisters awaken after being put to sleep for two years by someone, to find that people now have smartphones called “MagiPhones” that have taken over the market. Planeptune has fallen to the “Buzzoer Phenomenon,” which brought hordes of monsters, and the older sisters have gone missing.
