Today Amazon Japan opened pre-orders for the newly-revealed Brave Neptunia: Behold World and Space!! Ultimate RPG Declaration!! that is being developed for Compile Heart by Quebec-based Artisan Studios.
As a consequence, we get to finally see the key artwork, the first screenshot, and we get some information about the game.
First of all, it’ll be released in Japan on September 27th. At the moment only a PS4 launch has been confirmed.
The story is as wacky as the title. Neptune awakens in a strange world dominated by an organization named “Silkwarm” that worships 2D games. The people work on creating 2D games, and pay taxes with game cassettes. Those who produce poor games or dare to use new technologies are sent to the testing center where it’s rumored that their spirits are broken.
When Neptune awakens from her slumber, she is missing her memories, and she stumbles on a nearby town. A monster appears, and she manages to defeat it. She becomes a self-proclaimed heroine, and she will meet various characters during her strange journey with a mysterious book (Histoire).
On top of Neptunia, Blanc, Noire and Vert also appear in the game, and apparently, they all have lost their memories.
You can check out the images below. At the moment there is no announcement of a western release.
