Neptunia Virtual Stars arrives on Steam with a Limited Edition

The game launched on PS4 early this month, and now it has come to the house that Valve built.

Neptunia Virtual Stars released today on Steam, Idea Factory has announced. Now you can enjoy hacking and slashing your way through another world on another platform, and snap up DLC at a permanently discounted price.

According to a press release, Neptunia Virtual Stars is available during its launch week with a 10% discount, with the Deluxe Pack, DLC Set and VIP Edition also available for purchase. The DLC Set is offered at "a permanent 15% discount," which seems to me like just another way to say that its price is lower now. But whatevs.

On PlayStation 4, the game features Japanese voiceover options and English subtitles. The same is true of the newer Steam release, but it also offers Japanese and Traditional Chinese subtitles. Let that knowledge be your guide.

The press release also listed some in-game DLC included in the DLC Set and VIP Edition, which includes:

  • Bikini Outfit: Goddess Set​

  • Bikini Outfit: V-Idol Set​

  • Swimsuit Outfit: Goddess Set​

  • Swimsuit Outfit: V-Idol Set​

  • Bunny Outfit: Goddess Set​

  • Bunny Outfit: V-Idol Set​

  • Deluxe Item Pack

  • Item Booster Pack​

  • In-game BGM: Ileheart -"I Love You"​

  • In-game BGM Ileheart - "Twilight Heart"​

  • In-game BGM: Ileheart - "Vanilla Weather"

  • ​Unlock All BeatTik Songs

  • ​Unlock All BeatTik Dances​

  • Extended BeatTik Dance Pack
A special limited physical edition is available for both the Steam and the PS4 versions of the game, with the former being exclusive to the IFI Online Store. As a neat bonus, you can purchase the Limited Edition for a paltry $109.99 USD and receive FREE domestic shipping. In Europe, the package costs £79.16 and does not include VAT fees, duties and shipping.

On a related note, those who purchase the Limited Edition for Steam through the IFI Online Store will receive the Deluxe Pack. It includes:
  • Digital Art Book

  • Original Sountrack (25 selections)

  • PC Theme

  • 8 wallpapers

  • 9 mobile wallpapers
In case you aren't already aware, Neptunia Virtua Stars takes players to Virtualand, a digital world that exists alongside other known dimensions. Dropped within that other realm, the usual heroes from the Hyperdimension Neptunia games must fight to save Content from the Antis and thus engineer their return home to Gamindustri.

Gameplay is more action-oriented than usual, with combat that relies on hack-n-slash battles. There is also a BeatTik rhythm game, for those who might feel like dancing. Are you anxious to get your groove on?
