In the world of Gameindustri, which is based on the real-world games industry, beautiful girls themed after fictitious game consoles are the stars in this latest “Personification x Moe! x Transformation” RPG. Please look forward an even further enhanced Neptunia game with the addition of the new “management” system.
Your main objective in Neptunia GameMaker R:Evolution is to manage a game company, and gradually expand with the goal of becoming a large enterprise. Keep your eyes peeled for a Neptunia game evolved in every aspect, from the newly added “management parts,” to an expanded and deeper four-character party battle system, “dungeon exploration” that allows for high-speed movement by motorcycle, and the “Heartful Photo Mode” that allows you to capture manga-like expressions.
In a world of competing game studios…
Game studios fight for power in order to acquire “market share” in the game developer world.
And now, a new game studio is about to enter the battle for survival in the world of Gamindustri.

Main Characters Illustrated by Tsunako

Please look forward to a game developer revolution story that interweaves the dimension-hopping Adult Neptune, the three “failure goddesses,” and recorder of history Croire.
Become the President of a Game Studio and Revive a “Fallen Game Studio”
The concept of Neptunia GameMaker R:Evolution is expanding a game studio as its president.
Your management skills will be put to the test in the newly added management parts. Develop “discs” that can strengthen character action skills. And as your company grows, you will be able to develop even better discs, so gradually expand with the goal of becoming a large enterprise.
Exciting Four-Character Party Battles
Fight in evolved combination battles in which characters cooperate with each other.
The game also features a number of returning elements, including enhanced CPU transformations, and flashy EXE Drive attacks that eradicate enemies. By combining these in cooperative action, dynamic battles will unfold.
Neptunia GameMaker R:Evolution is due out for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Switch on August 10 in Japan.
