Megadimension Neptunia VIIR announced for PlayStation VR

The Neptunia series embraces VR, but no western release.

Compile Heart, the Japanese developer known for its Hyperdimension Neptunia and Record of Agarest War behind videogame series, has announced Megadimension Neptunia VIIR for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR. 

Not solely a virtual reality (VR) title, Megadimension Neptunia VIIR was revealed during the Dengeki Game Festival 2017, reports Gematsu. There’s very little info to go on in terms of gameplay, with Compile Heart releasing a short teaser trailer.

The series features anime girls called Goddesses, which are essentially videogame consoles. In predecessor Megadimension Neptunia VII, there were three separate worlds to complete, each with its own story arc. Whether this will continue in the VR is unclear, but a rough translation indicates players might be able to live a daily life with the characters.

At present Megadimension Neptunia VIIR has been confirmed for launch in Japan only, but with Megadimension Neptunia VII seeing a worldwide release in 2016, western PlayStation VR players could well see it arrive at some point.
