It looks super hype. I love the designs, except the loli-esque character, but I LOVE how they actually just went ahead and put the yuri in. No implied yuri, no almost moments where it nearly happens and gets interrupted, they just straight up go for it.
The game is a 3D battle adventure, where girls infected with a curious virus are transformed into literal weapons, upon being neurologically stimulated.
As the pair of ladies fight together, their synchronization will increase, which also improves their combo changes and the variety of weapons they have at their disposal. Eventually, you can launch powerful special attacks, which destroy the clothes of your enemies.
Premise keeps being interesting but the game itself looks like a poor man's Senran Kagura. Somehow.
I would say that's partially because this is a new art style for them. SK has had years of honing the models and designs for that, but from what I understand, it's getting harder and harder to make anime-style graphics on consoles these days, so making a new art style on this rather than updating models they have already might be difficult.
Neptunia U was a different animal entirely. While this is part of a big and ambitious new franchise that Marvelous owns, that was a collaboration project and spinoff title for someone else's franchise. While I'm not saying they didn't put as much effort into it or they didn't try their hardest, it was probably likely meant to more be filler, or simply an experiment, between bigger Neptunia releases, rather than something truly big, whereas this is a "big" release for this franchise.
Incidentally, Tamsoft is also making another Neptunia title, so we can see how that's improved soon too if it's the same kind of game.
