Idea Factory International has officially announced Superdimension Neptune VS SEGA Hard Girls for a release on Steam in Summer 2017. When the PlayStation Vita version of the game was originally released, an ESRB rating already mentioned a PC version, so this doesn’t come as too big a surprise. You can view early screenshots of the beta version below, along with the official press release. You can also find my review of the PlayStation Vita version here. Back then I noted the game struggled to maintain its 30fps framerate, a problem that I imagine the PC version should be able to fix. You can also sign up to test the beta of the PC version here!

About the Sega Hard Girls

These anthropomorphized consoles are girls with an array of personalities and spunk, and this time they are teaming up with Neptune and IF for an all-new adventure!
Our story begins in the mysterious halls of an ancient library…
The Grand Library holds the history of the world within its shelves. Legend says that if one was to tamper with the books kept there, the past itself could be completely rewritten…
A daring adventurer known as IF discovered the location of this revered library and finally crossed its threshold. Little did she know, a disaster of historical proportions was about to occur before her very eyes. Books began to vanish from the library’s shelves; the history of the world was disappearing before her and the reasons for this occurrence were shrouded in mystery.
IF sets out on a journey across time to uncover the truth! Will she be able to work together with both the Sega Hard Girls and Goddesses to recover the lost history? Will they really be able to save the world?
