Neptunia Shooter has released, and finally we got that Pixel Art style Neptunia game every single Neptunia ending has left us wanting! It’s currently only on Steam for $5 ($4 on sale), and it’s an adorable easy-to-get-into shmup! As always, feel free to ask questions or submit any missing information in the Comments below, or just let everyone know what you think of the game!
I made this quick little guide since, well, I make all sorts of Hyperdimension Neptunia guides, and this one’s slightly confusing to start into due to how simple it is…and the main menu being Japanese for some reason. The game just came out so expect me to tidy this up and add info as I play.
Neptunia Shooter Game Info
Title: Neptunia Shooter / ネプシューター Platform: PC Steam Language: Japanese/English Release date: 2019-05-22 Developer: Idea Factory International Price: $5 Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up / STG
2019-05-23: Guide released. Added video of boss KO’s.
2019-05-22: Game released
Is the main menu seriously Japanese?
This is a bug as of the latest update, should be fixed soon. The items are Start, High Scores, and Edit Controls respectively.
What is it?
Neptunia Shooter is a tiny (it’s 24MB in size!) little Shoot ‘Em Up style side game in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. It’s a pretty straight-forward game as a low-price side game, and thus doesn’t presently have any alternate modes or unlocks; just one main game mode almost entirely based on skill.
Mega Miracle Force (メガミラ) just released in Japan! Just like Makai Wars prior (and several Neptunia games) I figured I’d do a little import guide to help other players get going!
Feel free to contribute any information that’s missing or ask questions in the comments, or join our Discord to discuss Mega Miracle Force, Neptunia series, or other games in general!
Mega Miracle Force is a Compile Heart universe crossover game, with Hyperdimension Neptunia characters as well as characters and enemies from many of Compile Heart’s other games. It plays much like Makai Wars as a gachapon based mini-SRPG with auto-battle and various character-enhancing systems. In a very Compile Heart quirk, you equip CG images from the various games as “equipment”.
2021-03-31: Mega Miracle Force is shutting downMay 27th. Remember to expect this from all Gachapon game. Get your screenshots, comemorative videos, etc done before then.
2020-01-30: I haven’t kept up with MMF, but my Discord Server has! Pop in the #Hyperdimension channel if you have questions about new units or events. This guide still covers the basics for players struggling to play without knowing the language but might not be up to date.
2019-04-26: Added an Abridged Guide from @WaifuWarrior in the Discord! Green Heart was added to the game.
2019-02-07: Uzume and Tiara were added to the gacha. No rate up.
2019-02-06: Much more info added to the spreadsheet, best current CG reqs added to Items section.
2019-02-04: Starting to add more gameplay info about CGs, achievements etc. Icons were added to the spreadsheet for Characters/Items/CGs (Link Cards), thanks to everyone’s help on that! Info from the sheet is being worked into the guide. Added a lot of the item descriptions just now.
2019-02-03: Pseudo Cloud Save workaround discovered.
2019-02-02: Updated info on the save transfer feature (it’s not REALLY a cloud save yet), how to emulate the game (you don’t need a specific android version, just a recent one). Recommend android 7.1.2 for emulation, 5.1 freezes sometimes. Images added to the Characters/CGs/Items spreadsheet, thanks!
2019-02-01: Much more complete characters list/spreadsheet, thanks to the contributors! Added info on how to get the game working in emulator.

Mega Miracle Force Abridged Guide
From @WaifuWarrior#9296 in our Discord Server, here’s a quick guide to what you need to know; the game’s pretty simple and easy so this simple strategy will do you for almost any stage.
The English/Global version of Azur Lane is finally getting the Hyperdimension Neptunia crossover event that previously hit the Chinese and Japanese versions of the game. Since I usually do guides for Neptunia games and picked up the game just for this crossover, I figured I’d make a little guide for players in a similar situation.
Updates: 2018-11-28: It appears SP4 has the best drop rate for Nep Skin Boxes for cosmetic items
The event just released on 2018-11-22 and runs until 2018-12-05! Filled in most information. I streamed the event on the 22nd including pulls!
The Neptunia characters are viable/high rarity units (Elite and Super Rare, the top two in the game) so if you want to play with just/mostly the Neptunia games it should be pretty viable. Take my advice with a grain of salt though as I only dove in to get the Neptunia characters myself; as always corrections and questions are welcome in the comments below! Or in our Discord Server

Other IAPs present) Battery Drain: High
Azur Lane Quickstart Info
Azur Lane is a fairly standard “mobage” style collection/RPG game. IF you’ve played FateGO, Fine Emblem Heroes, Food Fantasy, or hundreds of others, you probably know what you’re in for.
If you’re just starting the game/haven’t started yet, you’ll want to get to level 15 as soon as possible. This is achievable within a day or two at most with moderate play; I’m level 30 now in 3 days.
Make sure to go to Settings, Account to bind your account to a Twitter/Facebook account. This is your cloud save option; without it, you may lose your account or be unable to transfer it to a new phone.
This is a guide for gameplay, progress, and trophy information in CyberDimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online! The single most important thing to know about this game is nothing is missable and there’s no need for replays! It’s the lowest-anxiety Neptunia game ever, so no need to worry about True Ending requirements, bad ends or anything annoying like that!
As always, if you have questions simply ask them in the Comments section below and I’ll answer them and update the guide. This guide is a work in progress but I’m always willing to update my guides with new info, and I’m playing the English version right now to keep it up to date.
2018-02-28: The PC version has finally released on Steam! The information in this guide is still accurate for the PC version, though I don’t have any info on PC-specific bugs if any.
2017-10-19: More locations, started adding maps (anyone got “all gather point” maps for the ones before Sea of Trees?)
2017-10-18: Added Bugs section with both helpful and very not so helpful bugs. More location info.
2017-10-17: More info on grinding, trophies, locations. Added some gameplay tricks to Uni and Nepgear’s sections.
2017-10-10: Release day! Added some more character info and spruced up the writing in general.
The english version of Four Goddesses Online comes with all the Japanese patches by default. In case you’re not aware of these changes, this is the most major changelist from the base Japanese version:
Level cap is up to 200 (XP accumulated before the patch will be added once the patch is applied, some of my characters had 9999999 XP before the patch and they are now lvl 125 with the patch)
New EX Guild rank with 9 new quests for online multiplayer (rewards are mainly perma stat boost items)
Have you ever hoped someone composed a nice table of all Hyperdimension Neptunia games and their release dates across all platforms and regions? I certainly hope so, because you’ve found exactly that and will have to deal with it either way.
Note: The United States (US) and Japanese (JP) release dates will be used as generic “Western” and “Eastern” dates respectively, their exact release in all sub-regions like Asia, EU, AU may vary by a few days. PC releases are listed as World Wide (WW) even though technically they have different (or no) release date in Japanese, oddly enough.
Style has a big impact on a game’s tone and perception, and one of the strongest ways a game can create that sense of style is with it’s own font. Hyperdimension Neptunia has a unique, in-universe font we’ll just call the Gamindustri Font (keep reading for a download link too!).
The font was prominently featured in the first Neptunia game and its promotional works:
This is a guide for English importers of the Japanese release of Four Goddess Online: Cyber Dimension Neptune of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series.
If you’re playing the English version, check out my guide for the English version! This guide won’t be kept up to date and might not match the names in the English version, and was meant to help English speakers wade through the Japanese version.
If you have any questions or info to contribute, please leave a comment, send an email or whatever. If you need extra info 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.
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
Welcome to the second article about Neptunia localization. In our first article we discussed about how character names have been localized and the rationale behind the changes (or lack thereof). This time we’re going to talk about different terms that have been used through the series.
In Japan the Neptunia series is just called Neptune. When NISA localized it, they were worried about potential trademark issues (this was around the time companies were being sued over the word Edge), and so the word was changed slightly into a non-existent word. Continue reading “Localized Terms in Hyperdimension Neptunia”
Of all the issues discussed in localizations, characters’ names are often the most contentious issue. Hyperdimension Neptunia has had just about every possible different style of name change across its history: different name but same meaning, direct romanization, and even completely made up replacements.
An aspect of localization that’s often hard to grasp is that sometimes wording has to change for the meaning to stay the same, but sometimes things are changed for other reasons (or worse, no reason).
Probably the most well known of the name changes. Her Japanese name is taken from a DS flashcart sold in Japan called Majikon. Her English name is taken from the R4 flashcart (which is essentially its Western counterpart), and also happens to fit more in line with the French-style naming.
