Neptunia Sisters VS Sisters review

System: Switch
Release date: January 23, 2024
Developer: Idea Factory / Compile Heart
Publisher: Idea Factory

Hyperdimension Neptunia is a series that has been around for a long time now, and much like the video game industry that it shamelessly parodies, it is constantly changing, incorporating new ideas and gameplay mechanics into its premise to stay relevant. This has not always been for the better, however. Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters, the latest entry in the franchise to make its way to the Switch, now features some of the series’ best writing to date, but is let down quite significantly in other areas, making it a tough sell for any but those already invested in the series.

Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters release date

Idea Factory has passed along a final release date for Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters in North America and Europe. In both regions, it’s slated for January 23, 2024.

Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters previously hit Japan this past August. Idea Factory then announced localization plans in September.

Here’s an overview of the game:

Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters

Mugen Souls Z

Original (6/19): Eastasiasoft, Idea Factory, and Compile Heart announced today that Mugen Souls Z is seeing release on Switch. It will be available this September.

Mugen Souls Z is a sequel to the original game, which is also on Switch. The RPG features multiple open worlds to explore, extensive character customization, and strategic turn-based combat on free-roaming battle maps. On Switch, the game includes all prior extras, content true to the original Japanese release such as hot springs mini-games and additional CG gallery images, plus full English language support for both text and audio.

A new update has gone live for Dokapon Kingdom Connect, bringing the game up to versio 1.1.0. This is a particularly noteworthy update due to its inclusion of Local Wireless Mode for the game, allowing multiple players to play together without needing an internet connection or Nintendo Switch Online account. Some AI adjustments and bug fixes are also included. Full details can be found below:
