Today (March 26th) OneShot was updated with a new bonus chapter! It’s generally called the “solstice” update. Here’s the info you need to start exploring it.
From the wording I’m not certain if you absolutely have to beat the game “normally” to unlock this chapter, but I would strongly recommend that you do so and stop reading this guide due to potential spoilers.
I’ll keep spoilers to an absolute minimum and will tag them as so, but I’ll assume you’ve beaten the game at least once to be attempting this.
This was going to be a more complete guide, but for now I stopped with Trophies. I was planning on adding animal locations and robot strategies soon, though I haven’t decided on making separate small guides or a single large one with all the info shoved in one. If there’s specific information you’d like to see added (or if you have anything to contribute), feel free to leave a comment or contact me.
Important to note: nothing trophy-wise is missable whatsoever. You can complete the game any way you like then go back and get all trophies, no matter how you happen to play. There are a few choices that do matter story-wise and a couple missable quests with Nil, but none of them count toward trophies.
If you want to avoid spoilers, you can just totally ignore this section and come back after beating the game or when you’re stuck.
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.
2017-2-27: I’ve beaten the game and added more trophy and multiplayer info.

Potion of protection now costs 15000 in If/Compa’s store and the effect “resurrects entire party when used” is added to the previous one (heal all ailments and heals 30% HP for the party)
Better AI, AIs nowheal correctly and Blanc finally does her job!

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.
