Hyperdimension Nepunia Re;Birth 1 is cheapest yet at £9.20 (Steam code)

"Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 is an excellent remake of a flawed JRPG, retaining the quirky parody story of the original Hyperdimension Neptunia while bringing everything else up to date," I wrote in my 8/10 review. "Enhanced combat, visuals and gameplay systems make for a great portable RPG."

It's well worth a play even if it's a bit on the risqué side (to say the least), and you can now grab a Steam code at the cheapest price yet.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 gets a cheeky 50% discount - now £11.49 on PC

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 releases on Steam, 50% launch week discount

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 is only £11.49 on Steam. Click here to buy! >>

Hyperdimension Neptunia was a cheeky, racy and often genuinely hilarious game industry parody, but the original game was saddled with terrible combat, pacing and other issues on PS3. Thankfully the Vita remake -- Hyperdimension Neptuna Re;Birth 1 -- was absolutely brilliant and this new PC version improves things further with 1080p visuals!

It's 50% off during launch week, which is an absolute bargain. "Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 is an excellent remake, retaining the quirky parody story of the original Hyperdimension Neptunia while bringing everything else up to date," I wrote in my 8/10 review. "Enhanced combat, visuals and gameplay systems make for a great portable RPG." I hope it works just as well on PC.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 Review | Gamindustri Girl Power

They did it. They finally did it! Though I've long been a fan of Compile Heart's racy dialogue, quirky gameplay systems and art direction that can be charitably described as "colourful" (or more accurately "like a Kill la Kill cosplay competition sponsored by a lingerie company"), I've always had to point out that the boutique JRPG studio stops short of greatness more often than not. They have the talent, yet settle for fanservice over genuine excellence every single time.

But they did it. Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 is a genuinely great handheld JRPG, bringing a PS3 cult classic up to date in almost every way, while the Vita turns its remaining weaknesses into strengths. I'm currently reviewing Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2 ahead of its January 23rd embargo, but it's only fair that I give last year's remake the overdue credit it deserves.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 Review | Gamindustri Girl Power

All is not well in the land of Gamindustri. Four nations are locked into the bitter 'console wars,' sending out their champions to do battle as invulnerable Godesses. Sadly the 'CPU' of Planeptune is defeated by her rivals (Noire representing Lastation, Vert from Leanbox and Blanc representing Lowee) and crashes out of the console wars, only to discover that Gamindustri is threatened by the villanous Arfoire and her dastardly plan.

So in case you didn't twig: Hyperdimension Neptunia is a parody. A damn good one, if astonishingly top-heavy when it comes to the fanservice.
