Super Neptunia RPG allows players to assume the role of Neptune, Noir, Blanc, and Vert in an all new side-scrolling adventure, developed by a western studio for the first time. The gang of goddesses finds themselves in a new world owned by an organization called “Silkworm” which evidently worships 2D games. The people of this world are forced to create 2D games and pay taxes in the form of game cassettes. In the event that they produce poor quality games, the citizen will have their spirit destroyed.

Following a recent delay, it was revealed that the PS4 version will contain two “slightly modified” CGs. Gameplay outside of that has not been altered across all platforms. This is most likely images that show characters in a bath as well as a CG scene showing Neptune’s underwear. With that said, the title will not be altered on Nintendo Switch or PC.
