Fans of the Neptunia series and newcomers can enjoy the lush worlds of Gamindustri with the help of the PS5 and new gameplay additions, including a fishing mini-game. Gamindustri is a distant world comprised of four nations, each under the divine protection of a Goddess. The nations are Planeptune: Land of Purple Progress, ruled by Neptune, Lastation: Land of Black Regality, ruled by Noire, Lowee: Land of White Serenity, ruled by Blanc, and Leanbox: Land of Green Pastures, ruled by Vert. Locked in the Console War, the four Goddesses vie for domination of the planet until Neptune is cast down and stripped of her power. Now Neptune must fight to restore her place, but could a being known as Arfoire threaten the very world the Goddesses have sworn to protect?

    Neptunia ReVerse is clearly a "first-run effort" by Idea Factory to take the tools of the PlayStation 5 and see what they can do with them. It's perhaps a less ambitious effort than what Idea Factory made as its launch on PlayStation 4 (Omega Quintet), but putting that aside, this is a genuinely good game, worth the time of any JRPG fan, and by its very nature the perfect introduction to the entire series for new players with the new console. The additions that have been made here make it even more complete and also worth a replay for the Neptunia faithful. And if nothing else having an excuse to watch Neptune and the other girls run around in swimwear costumes for a few hours is always worth the investment.

    Neptunia ReVerse is a wonderful iteration of a lovely RPG classic that both fans and newcomers can enjoy. With oodles of content, a nifty new mode, and even a fishing mini-game; it's hard not to have a blast while playing through Neptunia's debut adventure on PS5.

    If you love the fanservice and the typical demented humor that distinguishes Japanese productions, Neptunia ReVerse will be the perfect starting point to discover (or rediscover) a franchise that has now become a cult among fans of Japanese role-playing games.

    Compile Heart, and the Neptunia series in particular, have the kind of negative reputation that begs you to push through and find the treasure that keeps these games releasing a full decade later. Sadly, if there is a diamond in all this rough, it’s not to be found in Neptunia ReVerse. The repetitiveness of the core experience is unlikely to win over non-fans, and longtime fans will feel disappointed, if not insulted, by the lack of changes from Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1, and PlayStation 5 exclusivity proves the final nail in the coffin for this remaster in search of an audience.

    Despite its strengths, Neptunia ReVerse should have been so much more. The best parts of the original continue to hold up, with a hilarious script and engaging combat. Yet, this is a remake to a fault. The game looks basic for a PS5 game while the narrative ignores the larger cast. The new features like fishing are welcomed, but aren't implemented well enough. By adding very little and doing nothing to take advantage of the new hardware, Neptune's latest ultimately feels like a missed opportunity.

    Neptunia ReVerse improves a few things from the Vita version, but it ultimately feels like a test of things to come. The fishing minigame is the only real use of the DualSense’s triggers, and while the game’s loading times have been basically erased, that is likely due to the PS5’s SSD speed and little else. It helps when the game’s assets aren’t all that graphically intense to begin with, after all. Neptunia ReVerse plays it safe with a standard JRPG setup for this long-running series, and while it’s something fans of the series will have some fun with, it’s not necessarily a standout title. Neptune has seen better treatment, but she has also seen worse. Thus, fans could hardly go wrong in picking this re-remake up in the near future.

    Neptunia ReVerse has enjoyable combat and engaging RPG systems, but it's not worth enduring the "fan service" to experience them.

    This game is the best remastered. I actually enjoyed playing it, I am glad that they've kept Noire's and Vert's better voices in the game.

Neptunia ReVerse is an glorified remaster of Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1, featured previously on the PlayStation Vita and PC. Luckily, the game features a number of new characters for those stuck playing the Vita release, and offers quality of life improvements to combat system. In addition, the new Arrange Mode allows players to enjoy their favorite character from across the series at any time during the story playthrough. For those unfamiliar to the series, the Neptunia series offers a light hearted turn-based JRPG experience with characters and story elements based off of gaming consoles and manufacturers, and this game is no different. Thanks to the minor improvements, the new gameplay mode, and a release on a major home console, Neptunia ReVerse should be considered the definitive Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 experience, but not much more.

    I like rebirth 1, but this is a wasteful port, all these "upgrades" could have been done on Vita with the original release lol.

    Ponto negativo é o grinding / farming que pode ser um pouco complicado.

Although Compile Heart claims that ReVerse is the definitive version that provides significant improvements in terms of visuals, combat, etc., we ourselves feel that this game still doesn't define the true "Next-Gen" quality. Even visually, this game is still less beautiful than Neptunia Virtual Stars which was released for PS4 last March. We hope that Neptunia's collaboration with Senran Kagura will bring blessings to this franchise. Expand
