    [Review] Super Neptunia RPG (by YouNa)

    Super Neptunia RPG. It is the ultimate 2D RPG game for Neptunia series fan. This is a spin-off game from the Neptunia series. Its gameplay is features 2D graphics with live animations, but also includes a variety of genres as adventure, puzzle and action. The game has lots of funny parodies and makes the player feel cheerful. Thanks to these features, it is a recommended Neptunia game for beginners to get started easily.

    Super Neptunia RPG is the1st 2D graphic game among the Neptunia series. It is made up of side scrolling stages, and the characters are designed in harmony with the background. Most of the previous Neptunia spin-off projects have been outsourced to TAMSOFT, but this time Artisan Studio from the West took on its game production. To be honest, there are some unstable factors, that's because there is some difference in the way Japanese and Western character animation sprites are made. Therefore, it may seem a little awkward. But unlike such concerns, this global release was better than expected. Of course, some awkward motions still exist. But Especially, the 2D live animation tool called Spine was quite smooth.

    The action stage has some special effects, but got the impression that it is not showing off enough quality. Each stage has action, puzzle, collection, and event elements arranged evenly. But there was nothing special, and it seemed that balance adjustment was needed. The battle system is dynamic and vigorous despite the 2D graphics, but the strategic elements of the battle are less than the previous ones. It is an interesting combat system that can attack and recover intuitively. But even though there are party member characters, there is no so-called combo system with them. The characters' skills are varied and the effects are gorgeous, but its battle formation gives the impression that it can not be used well.

    Super Neptunia RPG. As a spin-off project for Neptunia series fan, it can give enough passing score, but the some points that are lacking are obvious. Although the identity of the parody material related to the series became somewhat pale, its anime characters move more vividly thanks to Spine, an animation production tool. It features a distinctive cuteness that can not be founded in 3D CGs. The series is designed to be easy for beginners to enjoy this game, and contains many events to help you understand the Neptunia worldview. The gameplay system is somewhat pity overall, but it's well worth it for anime character game fans. Best of all, it's a great welcome to be able to continue these adorable series.
