Idea Factory International announced that the Compile Heart-developed RPG Neptunia Virtual Stars will launch on PC-via Steam alongside PlayStation 4 in 2021.
The PS4 and Steam release will include Japanese voice-over and English subtitles. Also, the Steam version will include Japanese and Traditional Chinese subtitles. The publisher didn’t outline any benefits one platform has over the other, so we assume they are the same graphically.
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.
