Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 will be released on PlayStation Vita in the North America and Europe in late summer, Idea Factory has announced.

hnrebirth1Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 is a remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia, which was previously released for the PlayStation 3 in 2011.

Renewed event conversations, graphics, and newly added game mechanics have been added.

Following is a list of key features and differences from the PS3 versions:

  • An overhauled battle system – Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 takes the original game and equips it with the battle system of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. This gives the player a more in-depth gaming experience.
  • New scenario, new ending –  The main story and event scenes are renewed from the PlayStation3 version. The core storyline will remain mostly the same, but the conversations between characters are all new. A new ending has been added as well. This will allow players returning from the PlayStation3 version to enjoy the game anew.
  • New “Remake System” – A new system has been added to Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1: the “Remake System”. It lets players customize and make changes to the game system itself by obtaining “Plans”.
  • Receive Blank Discs to craft your own Game Discs. – You can create unique equippable items by burning Idea Chips (abilities) onto Blank Discs. Depending on the Idea Chips used, a Godly Game may result, which will grant you an additional ability.
  • DLC brings more playable characters and more –  Additional characters will be playable through DLC; players can increase the level cap to 999; and additional monsters, quests, and dungeons will be available.

More information will be made available as the game is closer to relase.
