Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U, an action game spin off of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series from Compile Heart and Tamsoft, will stay true to the series with mechanics such as Lily Ranks making an appearance.
You can take two characters onto the battle field and switch between them as you see fit. Taking characters on quests together will see their Lily Rank increase, this will earn superior support effects and will also allow for you to listen to special voiced scenes.
Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U‘s characters are customisable. This will allow for you to customise the skills that your characters have both before and after their transformations. Characters can also be given different equipment when in their transformed state, meaning that they can have two sets of equipment in battle! Defeating enemies will earn you medals, which you can use to purchase equipment and stat boosts for your characters.
We also learn that SP Skills will have certain affects on your skill meter when they are used. Neptune’s 32 Hit Exe Blade β will use a little bit of your skill meter, whereas Noire’s Infinite Slash Exe Drive will drain the entire meter.
Finally, we are told that you can pick and choose different costumes for your characters in Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U.
The game is set to release in Japan on August 28th with no news as of yet for a Western release. As soon as we have any more on Ultra Dimension Action Neptunia U, we at The Vita Lounge will be sure to keep you updated!
