A new update has gone live for Super Neptunia RPG on Switch. In addition to many fixes, a number of improvements have been implemented.

Below are the full patch notes:

System: Switch
Release date: June 25, 2019
Developer: Artisan Studios / Compile Heart
Publisher: Idea Factory


Have you ever wanted Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, and SEGA to be personified as anime girls? If for some bizarre reason you answer “yes,” then the Neptunia franchise should be right up your alley. Since the release of the first Neptunia game in 2010, this Japanese RPG series has presented fanciful takes on the age-old console wars. With Super Neptunia RPG, the franchise finally makes its debut on a Nintendo system, as well as its first foray into 2D game design. While this latest entry features all the charm and fast-paced gameplay that make the series so endearing, the larger package feels so rough around the edges that it can be hard to recommend.

Super Neptunia RPG finally launched in the west, but that doesn’t mean things are over for the game. Idea Factory will be rolling out DLC starting today and continuing into July.
