Neptunia GameMaker R:Evolution

System: Switch
Release date: May 14, 2024
Developer: Compile Heart
Publisher: Idea Factory

I think the most surprising thing about Neptunia Game Maker R:Evolution is that it’s taken Compile Heart this long to produce it. Since her introduction in Megadimension Neptunia VII in 2015, the older Neptune has proven to be a fairly well-received and popular character in the franchise, and she has been long overdue for a game where she is the central protagonist. Now, finally, she stars as president of a game development studio, alongside three brand new characters, ready to depart on her own adventure. It is, I am pleased to say, one that is well worth experiencing, although perhaps not on the Switch if you have other options available.
