Hyperdimension Neptunia is coming to the West! Rebirth 1 is a complete remake of the PS3 title Hyperdimension Neptunia - including a laundry list of improvements to the graphics, battle system, game mechanics, and event conversations. 

The battle system borrows the one used in Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, abandoning the traditional standing line-up battles featured in the original title and replacing it with a free-movement combat system. Returning players will find the 'Scout System' missing and the 'Remake System' in its place. The new system allows players to customize and make changes to discs by obtaining 'Plans'.

Developer French-Bread is teaming with Arc System Works to bring its latest arcade title, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late (UNIEL), to PS3 with tons of new upgrades and updates!

Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late will be sporting stylish and smoothly-animated special attacks along with a variety of easy-to-perform combos. If you hit the right ability execution you can even pull off the very aestetically-impressive Infinite Worth Exist move!

UNIEL also includes a unique cast of characters, each possessing special abilities and weapons of their own! The biggest news coming out of the latest Famitsu is that we will be able to play the high school warrior Nanase! Rocking the stylistic oversized sword, her special attack is a spinning 'Windmill', staying out of her reach could get pretty difficult!

Another contender enters the fray for top virtual diva - IA is a Vocaloid starring in her new rhythm game for the Vita! Developed by Kenichiro Takaki who was previously the producer of the infamous Senran Kagura, IA has a definite edge on the competition!

As with most console handheld rhythm games, players will be moving the analog sticks and pressing buttons in time with the tempo of musical notes. What makes IA/VT different is the dynamic feedback based on a player's performance - colors and more will change accordingly in the most fantastic of ways!

Track wise, there are 60 different songs with some tracks featuring new exclusive music video background footage of the artists performing their songs. There will also be different play modes, with challenge modes, consecutive play, and free play.
