Super Neptunia RPG Western Release Date Pushed Back to Summer
Super Neptunia RPG
PlayStation 4™ & Nintendo™ Switch – US & EU
Last time, Compile Heart and Idea Factory International announced the delay of the Artisan Studios-developed 2D sidescrolling RPG, Super Neptunia RPG, in the West to Spring 2019 release. However, it looks like Super Neptunia fans would need to have another bag of patience as Idea Factory International has to delay the PlayStation 4 and Switch versions of the game once again to Summer from its previously Spring 2019 release date in North America and Europe.
Nevertheless, the PC version of the game is still slated for its Summer 2019 release.
The company also announced that the PS4 version will feature two “slightly modified” CGs. Plus, it is worth noting that the gameplay for all platforms remains the same from its original Japanese version.
You can check out the official announcement below via Idea Factory International’s Twitter account.
