Hyperdimension Neptunia, known in Japan as Choujigen Geemu Nepuchuun, is a J-RPG and a spoof of the console wars between the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. The game inspired an animation and manga series, and a remake on the PlayStation Vita.
Gameplay includes 3D-style dungeon exploration, a Game Disk System which allows characters to perform special actions through combos during combat, and on-screen text reading similar to a visual novel.
The game takes place in the world of Gamindustri, a pun on "game industry," which is divided into four distinct areas: Lastation, Lowee, Leanbox, and Planeptune. The player-character is Neptune, one of four goddesses who, after being defeated in the Console Wars, has lost consciousness and awakens with amnesia. Finding the world suddenly infested with monsters, she sets out to fight them and piece together her missing memories while travelling to each of the four regions.
Hyperdimension Neptunia became a cult classic in Japan, and received high praise in both Japan and Europe, with an average score of 78% for its originality and overall fun. North American magazines, however, gave negative reviews with an average score of 43%, criticizing most aspects from its music and presentation to its mediocreness.
Like most RPGs, this game isn't particularly difficult, only time consuming. It's very possible to obtain the platinum in one playthrough, so long as you follow one of the guides in our Links page and are careful. Otherwise, a second playthrough in New Game+ will be required to collect those missable trophies.
Overall, depending on whether or not you need a second playthrough, the Platinum can be earned in 60-90 hours.
The missable trophy in this game is Histoire Enthusiast, which requires you to obtain all content, such as 100% event completion and defeating every type of monster. It should also be noted that the Japanese version required the DLC for the dungeon completion, but not in the NIS America version. The missable trophy has a lot of factors which can result in a second playthrough. If you wish to avoid this, keep the following in mind:
Do not let Neptune die. If this happens, the shares of the lands decrease, which can result in closing certain events.
Do not recruit the goddesses, as this will affect who the final boss will be. Instead, after defeating the final boss, you can return and re-challenge the boss through the World Menu, this time with the three goddesses.
Complete every event and defeat every monster.
Otherwise, the majority of the trophies are story-based which you'll earn automatically. A few miscellaneous ones should also be checked out during your playthrough, such as Speedy Hunter which requires an S-rank in all the side dungeons.
