Publisher Idea Factory International has announced that the newest entry in the Neptunia franchise, Neptunia Game Maker R:Evolution, will launch Westward for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch in 2024. This release will also be both physical and digital and feature an English dub.
Featuring main character design by Tsunako and additional character design by Katsuyuki Hirano, this entry will feature the protagonist, Older Neptune, as she attempts to revitalize and grow a fallen gaming company. Of course, such a collective task requires several moving pieces with solid management skills.
Players will create games in real time, including which projects select developers should work on. Further, game element items found from dungeons and monsters can be used to boost video game development, obtain location-specific shares, and grant passive party buffs.
Combat is action-focused this time around, with revamped systems, chain attacks, and transformative specials present to spice things up. Traversal has also undergone a shakeup, with players able to travel through dungeons and sell games on a purple motorcycle.
