The Neptunia franchise is best known for its tendency to humorously and accurately poke fun at popular gaming culture, and it appears as though the series will finally be setting its sights on the realm of 2D gaming with Idea Factory International’s announcement of Super Neptunia RPG.

Developed by Canada-based developer Artisan Stuios, Super Neptunia RPG will be a 2D side-scrolling RPG set within — not surprisingly — an entirely 2D world. For more information, check out the official story description and key features below:

 

Story:

“In a world where 2D games reign supreme, an organization called Bombyx Mori forces its citizens to churn out 2D games as offerings to their leader. Those who dare to use new technologies or whose games don’t meet their standards risk banishment to the soul-crushing Trial Grounds.

A girl awakens in this world with no recollection of anything beyond her name, Neptune, and soon realizes she possesses great strength. With her newfound sense of heroism and a strange book known as Histoire in hand, she sets off on a journey to see if there might be more than this
two-dimensional life!”

 

Key Features:

  • Old School Dungeons! – Explore gorgeously painted, interactive dungeons in a style inspired by classic gaming titles.
  • Follow the Leader! – Enter turn-based battles where the party’s attack style changes based on the battle leader. Switch leaders on the fly, transform mid-battle, and use elemental attacks to maximize your team’s strategy!
  • Save Gamindustri! – In a time where retro gaming and 3D graphics are at polar ends, this story delves headfirst into the debate for self-aware ribbing of gaming culture.
  • 2D Comes to Life! – THe hand-drawn art of Neptunia series artist Tsunako is brought to life by Artisan Studios, showing the characters in a whole new way!

 

Super Neptunia RPG is slated to release in the West sometime this Fall on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Are you eager to experience the first-ever 2D Neptunia adventure? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
