Originally planned for a Fall 2018 release, Idea Factory International announced some unfortunate news today that Super Neptunia RPG has been delayed until Spring 2019 in both North America and Europe.
Here’s a brief overview of Super Neptunia RPG via Idea Factory International:
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.
