Idea Factory International has just revealed that the latest entry in the Hyperdimension Series, Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, will be coming exclusively to Playstation Vita on February 24, 2015. Hyperdevotion Noire is the first strategy RPG entry in the series and will not take place in Gameindustri as the other games have, but in the similar yet separate world of Gamarket. The game will also feature a slew of key features as outlined by the press release:
A Moe Army Awaits!
You ainâ€™t never seen the CPUs like this! Lead them in their first-ever foray into strategy RPG gameplay, taking on enemies in a whole new way. Fight off hordes of enemies in turn- based strategy, dodging laser beams and flaming pits, and more!
Link up with the â€œLily Systemâ€ The more often characters are in battle together, the higher their bond becomes. Activating the â€œLily Boostâ€ grants special stats and abilities, while â€œLily Pointsâ€ can be used to activate ultra-special moves and even goddess transformations. Donâ€™t be shy to build up those battle relationships and seal it all with a kiss!
Check your Status! All kinds of funky things can happen in the heat of battle and characters can be hit with status ailments that are both boon and burden. You can get pixelated, zombie-fied, or even turned into a block of tofu! Some status changes come with their own benefit and cost, so keep this in mind during a fight.
Item Customization! Youâ€™ll get tons of replay value with so many ways to boost your gearâ€™s stats! The more enemies you defeat, the more items you can get to customize your gear in whatever way you see fit. Let the great experiment begin!
Livinâ€™ the Noire Life! Lifeâ€™s not all about grid-based battles. Sometimes Noire just wants to relax at home, and with the â€œSim Noireâ€ mode youâ€™ll be able to do just that! Customize the place by buying furniture and accessories with in-game points, and make Noire feel like the goddess she is â€“ unlocking extra scenes in the process.
Check out the latest screenshots below and prepare to unite the CPUs in Gamarket to save the world on February 24, 2015.
