Idea Factory International announced today they will bring Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart to Europe and North America.
The strategy RPG is coming over from Japan, where it’s is known as Chou Megami Shinkou Noire Gekishin Black Heart. The game features goddess Noire as lead character, a well-known and beloved character from the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. This time the game isn’t taking place in Gamindustri but in a seperate world; Gamarket.
The CPUs we know from the Hyperdimension Neptunia are in a heated battle against eachother and just as Noire is about to win the CPUs are robbed from their powers. The CPUs now work together to protect Gamarket and to get rid of this new, unknown enemy.
Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart will see some new gameplay elements, it’s a turn-based SRPG where you need to fight hordes of enemies using strategy and the environment to defeat enemies. Status changes during battles will affect you and you need to make sure you can fight them, turning into a block of tofu or get pixelated are only a few of the effects that could occur. Noire can relax at her place using the Sim Noire mode. You can customize her place by buying furniture and loads of other extras. A returning feature is the Lily Rank System, bond together during fights and this can lead to various boosts in stats and transformations.
