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.

Here’s the full schedule:

Idea Factory has published a new behind the scenes video for Super Neptunia RPG. Below, Artisan Studios co-founder and CEO Mario Rizzo along with co-founder and director Julien Bourgeois talk about how their team was able to bring the Neptunia universe to light under a 2D lens.

While we’re still waiting to find out when exactly Mary Skelter 2 will be out in the west, the game has been dated for Switch in Japan. Compile Heart will release the title on August 22.

Fans will be able to purchase a physical copy for 7,776 yen or the digital version for 6,912 yen. A limited edition will also be sold for 10,476 yen. The package includes a set of nine clear cards, a booklet (with art materials and special words by Yomoji Otono), and a 21-track original soundtrack CD. Those who pre-order Mary Skelter 2 will receive an illustration card with a download code for “Jailbreak Support Materials,” which includes access to special equipment and item sets that will help the player out in the game.

A limited edition for Super Neptunia RPG is on the way, Idea Factory has revealed. North American and European pre-orders go live on May 28.

Here’s the full rundown as to what’s included:
