Neptunia Goes Cruisin’ and Shootin’ with On-Rails Shooter Dimension Tripper Neptune: Top Nep
The Neptitude cannot be contained as publisher Idea Factory International has announced another new spin-off titled Dimension Tripper Neptune: Top Nep.
Set to release on Steam next year, Dimension Tripper Neptune: Top Nep is an on-rails shooter combat and a wonderful pixellated art style to it. Looking at the images below, it reminds me a lot of games like Space Harrier and Thunder Blade. It isn’t the first time Idea Factory’s tried their hands at something a little more old-school, trying their hand at a shoot-’em-up game called Neptunia Shooter (you can read our review here) that was surprisingly solid for a little NES style spin-off.
So far, it looks like the playable characters are going to be Older Neptune, White Heart, Ram, Rom, and Green Heart, judging from the characters on screen and on the “Next…” UI on the lower right. Some classic enemies are looking to return, like the Ancient Dragon and the Eggplant People. The overview of the game’s finer details can be found below:
“Guide Older Neptune as she takes to the skies with the help of her state-of-the-art Generator Unit!
Combat through five unique stages and bosses based on the Gamindustri Nations. Blast through
