This is a guide for English importers of the Japanese release of Four Goddess Online: Cyber Dimension Neptune of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series.
This guide’s a major work in progress as I’m still playing myself. If you have any questions or info to contribute, please leave a comment, send an email or whatever. While I’m working on it, you can use this Japanese Wiki to help as well.
2017-2-20: More menu translations including item translations and AI orders. Thanks to Azure Valkyrie for the item/gem translations!
2017-2-19: Published first revision. Major trophies, game flow and some menu translations. Quest rank 4 and 5 walkthrough
A Normal Lost Phone is a short narrative game by Accidental Queens. I found online guides lacking, so I put together a quick, superior one for others.
Most progression gates in the game require finding out a password. I give a vague hint and a spoiler-block with the exact solution for each. Try to figure out as much as you can on your own, it makes it more fun and reveals the story as it was intended.
A fairly large update was just released for the game, obsoleting a lot of info (and glitches) I planned to post here. I’m still adding all I know, but feel free to let me know what I’m missing. For now this is majorly incomplete and I know, but I’d like to start helping sooner rather than later.
Edit: Abyssrium (a much better game) updated, and this update doesn’t actually work right. If anyone sends in tips I’ll gladly add info, but otherwise work on this guide is on hiatus until the game sucks less.
2017-01-11: Skeleton of guide. Waited too long to publish this so here goes.
Another Pokemon Sun/Moon global mission is upon us! I’ve gathered together a set of QR codes to let you Island Scan as fast as possible (mostly because these weren’t in one place and I’d rather only have one bookmark).
Before you start note you have to talk to the Hula Lady inside the festival Plaza next to the PC to activate the mission for yourself! I don’t know if your scans will count if you don’t register like this! Also be sure to go online (GTS, wondertrade, link trade) once in a while to “game sync” your progress. Since this is a Nintendo product, naturally none of that happens automatically.
The QR Codes
For those of us who know what we’re doing, here’s a set of 5 QR codes you can scan to most quickly get your island scans. After you get 100 points and do an island scan you can scan these again, so you only need to scan these 5 codes if you only want to island scan. You can’t stock more than 100 scan points, so scan immediately after hitting 100.
These should all still work even after the event just to get island scans. If you don’t know what an Island Scan is, see the next section.
So Neptunia Re;Birth 1 has a pretty disastrously hard boss fight: Black Heart, and it’s right at the start of the game. If you’re here, you might have ragequit because of it. I come bearing the following good news:
Re;Birth 1 is the only game in the series this unreasonable
There’s only 2 fights like this, both at the start of the game
A half hour+ of grinding is really all that’s needed to make this quite easy, it’s mostly a level mismatch
I have a PC save file to help you get past it without spoiling the rest of the game!
Easy Mode (PC Only)
Download this save file (created by @badp) and you’ll be level 15 and just before the Black Heart fight. It copies to save slot 19 so it shouldn’t erase any of your saves. Copy it to “Documents\My Games\Idea Factory International, Inc\Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1”, on modern Windows systems pasting that into Windows Explorer’s bar will take you right there. Failing that, navigate to your My Documents folder and continue down.
No DLC was used in making the save so it’s maximally compatible, but you’ll have to re-obtain Peashy/Plutia and grind them a tiny bit if you bought the DLC (not a big deal at all since all characters get XP not just the party). Should be fairly easy but read the strategy below if you’re still new to the series/having issues.
Unfortunately due to trophies I do not believe such a method is possible on PS Vita so you’ll have to grind a bit yourself and follow below.
So you want pretty, expensive Japanese things but you don’t live in pretty, expensive Japan, huh? Amazon’s Japanese branch has recently become a lot friendlier to importers, so if you want Japanese games, figures or other collectibles, it’s a good time to try them out. Here’s how to get started!
Work in progress! See my Import Guide below or try Google Translate on this Japanese Wiki if you find something missing for now. Feel free to leave any questions or comments and I’ll update, but otherwise it might be a while before I flesh anything out more.
Welcome to SuperDimension Neptune vs Sega Hard Girls!
Yes, this game has missable Medals and Baseballs required for trophies. It’s not a big deal unless you’re aware of it, but be mindful. Specifically Panique Cave and floors 1 and 2 of Toyopolis need to be re-explored after certain events (adding the bridge in Megadrive Panique Cave and adding floors to Toyopolis).
Other than these, and the fact that a New Game Plus is required to perform certain actions (including the Delphinus trophy) this game is extremely light on missable content and very stress free!
Is it Good?
I’ll have a full review coming on this site soon. But it’s the best side game so far (almost as good as a Rebirth series game I would say), though it has some flaws. I’d recommend it for any fans of Neptunia or big fans of Sega Hard Girls for sure.
This contains all current hidden fish in AbyssRium for iOS and Android, and their unlocking requirements. I keep it up to date, see the below sections for both guide updates and info on official game updates like new fish.
After the Christmas update my server had a lil’ meltdown and I had to upgrade to a much better (and pricier) one! You can support me and my guides monthly on Patreon (and even score some rewards)!
Feel free to leave a comment if you have any new info or even just a question or a thank you! I read every comment and reply where necessary. A contact form and direct email address are available on the About page. If you want to help, search for (?) which I use to mark all unknown/unconfirmed info!
2017-2-17: Clarified the notification fish situation
2017-2-16: Cleared up some confusion in the January Update Fish section, hopefully. Added all normal fish.
2017-2-14: Reduced number of headings in the Table of Contents, added shortcut to the comments. Added Normal Fish section because why not.
2017-2-11: Valentine’s day update is out for everyone! Added info for Giftbox Dolphin, we should have all info for Valentine’s day’s event! Corrected Best Method for earning candies now that Seahorse AI is broken.
2017-2-10: Pink Whale shark found
2017-1-09: Valentine’s day fish added. Update isn’t out for everyone. Quelle surprise.
2017-1-31: Backfilled the Game Updates section to show which fish were added when for the most part. Added a layout bug, and come clarification under “January Update” on the new Corals’ cost since a few people were confused due to how Abyssrium lists them.
2017-1-29: Importantupdate on Abyssrium’s facebook page. They’re responding to fan feedback, announced a Valentine’s Day event, and they’re considering changing the name back to Abyssrium. As a personal request, please comment there (or @abyssrium on twitter) and ask them to change the game’s name back to Abyssrium. The new name sucks and I hate having to change my guide’s title to the current clunky mess just to help people searching via the new name.
2017-1-28: New condition for Manta Ray discovered
2017-1-26: Site issues out of my control, keep retrying if you have problems. Added Migaloo unlock.
2017-1-24: Major reorganization to keep things neater.
Legendary Sun Fish is apparently only back if you already unlocked it. Almost done finding the new hidden fish! Split out game and guide updates for easier reference and so I have a place to just cleanly state new features, since adding a new section for each update is no longer working. Expect a moderate rework of the guide eventually.
2017-1-23: Legendary Sun Fish AKA Survive Mola Mola is back!! I also noticed there’s a new third set of Surging Vitality achievements and vitality boosts.
2017-1-22: AbyssRium’s app has been officially renamed “Tap Tap Fish”, and I hate that. But hey, the January update came out.
2017-1-18: Upcoming game update! Read about the new update here on Abyssrium’s facebook. 25 new fish, coming right when the Christmas Event ends. It’s late in the game, but with the “best method” you can still get quite a lot of the christmas event done in just a few days!
2017-1-10: Created a video Getting Started In Abyssrium Guide. Prized Walking fish is no longer available as of 2-017-1-1. Changed wording around the ‘palette’ menu to refer to it as “customization” since “theme” was ambiguous. Forgot which year it was.
