Idea Factory to bring more games to Steam in Spring 2016

Ever since the formation of Idea Factory International (or Iffy as they liked to be called sometimes) there has been a increase of JRPGs making their way onto the PC via Steam. This year alone we saw the release of all three Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth games, visual novel Amnesia: Memories, and Fairy Fencer F.  At their second annual press event, Iffy had announced that they will be continuing their expansion to the PC with three more games to be released in Spring 2016. These three games are Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed, Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, and Monster Monpiece. I previoully reviewed these games and for those who may not remember what these games are about or the score I gave them, here’s a quick refresher on each:

Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed, score: 9/10

Action Unleashed is an action spin off developed by Senran Kagura creators Tamsoft that has the CPU goddesses, their sisters and two journalists joining forces to combat an evil that’s waiting for them to let their guards down. It’s focus on action freshens up the series a bit and I personally think its one of the best spin off games so far, giving it a score of 9/10.

 

Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, score: 8/10

 

 

Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart starts my personal favorite character Noire of Lastation in an alternate re-telling of the first game’s events through her eyes. Instead of an action turn base system, Hyperdevotion uses a tatical turn base system with a grid base layout. Norie uses different characters as units to out flank the enemy. Though its almost a re-telling of the first game, there was enough content for it to stand on its own, which led it a score of 8/10.

 

Monster Monpiece, score: 8/10

 

 

Monster Monpiece takes elements from collectible card games, RPGs, tower defense and throws in some moe monster girls for a really unique experience. The game did cause some controversy do to Iffy altering some of the art work so that the game could receive an M rating from the ESRB. In the PC version however, all of the art is restored to its original state, so that should make some fans happy.

 

All three games will see a Spring 2016 release.
