Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online is bringing its Goddesses to the West and Steam this Winter

By Melvyn Tan on Mar 10, 2017

As someone who only managed a dozen hours in Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1, I nevertheless feel happy learning about new Neptunia releases, especially those that are announced to be coming to the west on console along with a worldwide Steam release. That's the case as well with Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online, which you can expect to arrive on PS4 in the west and on Steam around the world in Winter 2017.

So what's the latest Neptunia game about? Well, the four Goddesses of Gamindustri, joined by the CPU Candidates, head off into an online fantasy game world which is inspired by none other but themselves. The spin-off takes the form of a hack and slash adventure 9or action RPG, according to the trailer), and true to the online part of the name, you can play online with up to three other players.

Here's the backstory for the MMO game within the non-MMO game we're getting, in case the voice narrating it in the trailer is way too cute for your ears:

"Long ago... When the world was nothing but a void, the goddesses created Leanverde, the World Tree. The mighty Earth and the majestic oceans were born of Leanverde's sprout. And, finally, the goddesses bestowed a name upon this world... They called it... Alsgard."

And here's the rundown of key features:

  • You’ll never go it alone in the dungeons when you’ve got 3 other party members helping exterminate dungeon fodder in this hack ‘n’ slash adventure! Choose the one you control whenever you want!
  • Be prepped for any situation when you can map multiple skills to each face button, and max out your meter to unleash a flashy “Awakening Skill” that will devastate those who cross you!
  • Show off tons of cosmetic gear that can be resized, rotated, and placed anywhere! Ever seen a mustachioed fairy pirate DJ? Now you can!
  • Play online with up to three other people for extra loot and harder enemies, plus use the in-game chat feature to really make it feel like an MMO! (It’s not.)
