Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory (神次元ゲイムネプテューヌV, Kami Jigen Game Neptune V, also known as Ultra Dimension Neptune V) is an action role-playing game developed and published by Idea Factory with the assistance of Compile Heart. It is the third installment in the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise. Set in the year 1989, the story takes place after Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 in an alternate dimension to Gamindustri,[4] bringing more insight to the "Console War" story arc. The game was released in Japan on August 2012, and in North America and Europe in March 2013.

An enhanced remake for the PlayStation Vita, titled Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 3: V Century was released in Japan in December 2014,[5][6] and worldwide under the subtitle of V Generation in 2015.

Gameplay[edit]

The gameplay is similar to its predecessor, Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2, with one exception. The AP bar is gone so now characters can customize their combos but they are limited to one combo per turn. CPU's and Candidates can activate Hard Drive Divinity at the cost of 20% of their SP. Also included is the EXE Drive Gauge which fills up by the number of hits in a combo. This gauge can be expanded upon three times for a total of four gauges. When the gauge is full, characters can utilize an EXE drive, which is the equivalent of a special move. Joint attacks cost more than one section of the gauge. In the remake, the EXE drive gauge is gone, so Special moves cost all SP, which is limited to 1,000.


Music[edit]

The music for the game was composed by Kenji Kaneko. Nobuo Uematsu, along with his band Earthbound Papas, and Kenji Ito also contributed four songs each.[7] The opening theme song is Kami Jigen! Fortune Material (神次元!ふぉーちゅん・まてりある) by nao of 5pb., and the ending theme is Venus Megamix! (ヴィーナス女神っくす!) by Afilia Saga.

The opening theme song of the Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 3: V Century remake is titled "Rave:tech(^_^)New;world", with vocals performed by nao and written by Shinchiro Yamashita, track composed by Ryu, and guitar by Demetori.[8] And the ending theme is True End Player (トゥルーエンド プレイヤー) by Idol College.
