Hyperdimension Neptunia Sisters Vs Sisters Gets A New Adorable Trailer

Compile Heart has released an adorable new teaser for the upcoming JRPG Hyperdimension Neptunia Sisters Vs Sisters. The spinoff in the long-running JRPG franchise will see four younger sisters rise up to take back their share of the portable games market stolen by the mysterious smartphone called “MagiPhone”.

If that sounds confusing, that’s because the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise is set in a world populated by factions and individuals representing real-world console makers and consoles. Imagine a literal console war but with waifus. That’s essentially what the series is.

In Hyperdimension Neptunia Sisters Vs Sisters, it’s handhelds vs. smartphones, instead of consoles against consoles.

The synopsis reads:

That day, the four CPUs set off in response to a request for help from the PC Continent far beyond the sea, while Nepgear and the other CPU candidates that stayed behind visited a certain research facility.

There, they were trapped in a capsule and put into a deep sleep by the “Gray CPU,” and awakened to a Gamindustri two years later.

People now had the latest model of smartphone, called the “MagiPhone.” It became a world in which the market share was dominated by smartphones.

Neptune is told that Planeptune fell to the “Buzzoer Phenomenon,” in which hordes of monsters to appear, and that her older sister Neptune went missing.

Having lost her sister and a home to return to, Nepgear fell into despair.

This is a story of destruction and restoration, by CPUs, for CPUs, to pave the way from a future of despair, to a future of hope.

Fans can look forward to the same returning battle system that combines action and strategy, including the “Goddess Transformations” and “EXE Drive” mechanics.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Sisters Vs Sisters is slated to release for the PS4 and PS5 on 21 April 2022 in Japan. At the time of writing, there is no news yet on whether the game will be receiving an English localization.
