Idea Factory International announced that the Compile Heart-developed RPG Neptunia Virtual Stars will launch on PlayStation 4 on March 2 in North America and March 5 in Europe, and PC-via Steam on March 29.
The PS4 and PC version will only feature Japanese voiceover options with English subtitles.
Neptunia Virtual Stars takes place in a dimension called Virtualand, which is home to planets that produce a commodity known as content. One of these planets is named EMO, which has become the target of a group of Anti, which aims to destroy content.
VTubers, a group of popular live-streamers from Earth, are residents of Virtualand and are known for creating good content. Anti quickly captured them and turned them into data pockets known as V Cubes. A distress signal was sent out to, which is received by up-and-coming VTubers Mi and Yu, members of MEWTRAL, as well as the Goddesses of Gamindustri: Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert, who band together to put a stop to Anti.
Neptunia Virtual Stars features action systems that allow players to switch between melee and ranged shooter characters. Players can team up with real-life virtual YouTubers to take down enemies and save the planet. The game also features a music system that allows players to beat special bosses using background music’s power.
