Hi everyone, hope you're all enjoying the holiday season! We're back again with some more details on Neptune's next (online) adventure! If you missed our previous articles, you can check them out here and here first.

Let's start off with mentioning that several characters from past Neptunia games will be returning to play a part in the online game Neptune and her friends are playing. 

  • IF and Compa - Making another appearance in the Neptunia series, and in this game, they run a shop together. IF has taken the role of an item gathering explorer, while Compa selected doctor as her character job. (Voiced by Kana Ueda and Kana Sakai respectively.)
  • Plutia and Peashy - They run a shop where you can purchase new accessories you can equip to your party. These accessories will their appearance and several familiar costumes will be available as well. (Voiced by Kana Hanazawa and Aoi Yuki respectively.)
  • Uzume Tennouboshi - Always looking to improve her skills she started playing Four Goddesses Online. Prefers playing solo. (Voiced by Mariko Honda)
  • Tamsoft - After winning a lottery at a festival, her prize was access to Four Goddesses Online. She now plays as a blacksmith who can improve your party's weapons and armor. (Voiced by Ami Koshimizu)
  • Arfoire - A series regular antagonist returns and has become obsessed with Four Goddesses Online. She plays as a gardener and oddly likes to grow eggplants. (Voiced by Chiaki Takahashi)
  • Warechu - Another series antagonist, and looks like a mouse. However, since playing as a mouse isn't an option in this game he plays as a human. (Voiced by Niko)
More information on the game's battle system has also been revealed as well. Namely details on Skills, Break Gauges, Awakening, Arcane Skills, and the Strategy Screen.

Throughout the game, characters will be able to learn many different types of skills. You can select and set your favorite skills to the Circle, Square, Triangle, and X buttons, and have two different skill sheets to can switch between in battle with the use of the Up and Down buttons. You can use L1 to bring up the skill info display as well.

As mentioned in our previous article, the use of skills requires the consumption of SP, which you can recover by normally attacking monsters. Also note there are two skill types, Physical and Magic. Use Physical(STR) skills to reduce enemy HP and Magic(INT) skills to reduce their Break Gauge

Reducing an enemy's Break Gauge to zero will cause them to be stunned for a fixed amount of time, leaving them open to attack from your party, so take full advantage of it. You can speed up this process by locking on to enemies with the R1 button, which will also analyze them, providing you with the information you need to plan your attacks. Also, don't forget to exploit enemy weaknesses to fire, ice, thunder, and wind.

As you attack enemies and as they attack you, your Awakening Gauge will fill up. Once one gauge is filled, Awakening can be triggered. While Awakened, SP is recovered faster and the power of Skills is also increased. When the Awakening Gauge is filled three times while Awakened, your character can unleash their powerful unique special move called an Awakening Arcane. Of course, when the Awakening Gauge is depleted, the Awakening state ends. When playing offline single player, only the player character will activate Awakening, but when playing online multiplayer everyone will be able to use this ability. 

Speaking of offline single player,  you can set the actions of the AI-controlled characters by using the Strategy Screen. You'll be able to select from nine different strategies depending on the situation. 

Four Goddess Online: Cyber Dimension Neptune will be coming to PS4 this coming February. You can check out some more gameplay footage by Dengeki Playstation here. In the meantime, we'll continue to bring you more news for this fun and cute looking title.
