Idea Factory International has released several English screenshots for upcoming Strategy RPG Hyperdimension Noire: Goddess Black Heart, which is the series’ first foray into the SRPG genre.
They’re all conversation screenshots but they’re looking like the familiar cast of characters that we already love, and we can’t wait to see more gameplay hopefully in the near future.
Hyperdimension Noire: Goddess Black Heart is a SRPG and so will still be turn-based, so fans should be able to get acquainted with it quite easily, but some new gameplay mechanics have been included such as the “Lily System” which gives you buffs and access to special moves that are only available through spending time with other characters by fighting alongside them. Similar to Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection, there is a sim mode dubbed “Sim Noire” where Noire relaxes, goes out with her friends and decorates her room. There’ll also be an in-depth customisation system so you aren’t outplayed on the battlefield.
Hyperdimesion Noire: Goddess Black Heart releases in Europe and North America early next year exclusively on Vita, and it’ll be available both physically and digitally.
