It was announced by Idea Factory that Neptunia Shooter; an 8-bit side-scrolling shooter based on the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise, will be coming to Steam on May 21! Idea Factory revealed the game as an April Fool’s joke but decided to turn it into a real game.
Idea Factory describes Neptunia Shooter as follows:
Armed to the teeth, players begin as Neptune in an unworldly 8-bit space dimension ravaged by creatures who burst endless waves of bullets. Shoot, dodge, and defeat the boss in six unique bullet-hell worlds. After defeating each boss, they will join your mission, allowing you to switch characters and utilize their unique shooting abilities. Neptune and her friends must traverse through this shmup space dimension and defeat the last boss once and for all!
A trailer for the game was released which you can view below:
