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.
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!
Majorly work in progress! See my Import Guide below or try Google Translate on this Japanese Wiki if you find something missing for now. I’m still working on writing it, but questions/corrections in the comments are always welcome of course.
Welcome to SuperDimension Neptune vs Sega Hard Girls!
You might have first heard of it as Super Dimension War Neptunia VS Sega Hard Girls Dream of Coalescence Special AKA Cho Jigen Taisen Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls Yume no Gattai Special AKA 超次元 大戦 ネプテューヌＶＳセガ・ハード・ガールズ 夢の合体スペシャル AKA I really wish they’d offically announce an English name at the same time as Japanese because pre-english coverage of this game is a mess!
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.
