Get ready to return to Gamindustri! NIS America have today announced a March 2013 release date for the latest instalment of Compile Heart's Hyperdimension Neptunia series.

HYPERDIMENSION NEPTUNIA VICTORY sees our heroine Neptune transported back to a 1980s version of Gamindustri, where she must team up with friends old and new to help protect this new planet. There's also a whole host of features to enjoy including (from the press release)...

Dynamic Combat: Freely move units in battle to tackle foes! Set up your own combos, fill up the EXE Drive gauge, and then deal “massive damage” with your finishing attacks!
Scout System: Send out Scouts to explore and gather information on dungeons! Level them up so they can find things you may have missed on your adventure!
Flag System: Break or repair “flag” triggers in dungeons to activate different events when your Scouts return from exploring! This can change enemy spawns or reveal new items!
Create Game Discs: Obtain blank discs and burn different types of data onto them to access new abilities! With the right combinations, you may even make a Godly Game! It’s your chance to craft your own AAA title for Neptune and her friends to equip!

I could try and explain more but frankly this insane trailer (replete with obligatory anime bazongas) gets across far more than mere words ever could...

You must have the Adobe Flash Player installed to view this player.

Official Synopsis:

Several years after preventing Arfoire’s revival, Gamindustri has remained at peace. The CPUs and their younger sisters have been enjoying their quiet lives for a while... Then one day, the CPU of Planeptune—Neptune—is sent to another dimension. This new dimension feels very much like her own... except it has only progressed to the Gamindustri of the 1980s. In this dimension, a group of villains calling themselves the “Seven Sages” are trying to create a world free from the rule of CPUs. With help from her new friends, including that dimension’s CPU of Planeptune—Plutia—Neptune begins her quest to protect a totally different Gamindustri in her brand-new adventure!

So there you have it. There's also a cool iPhone app that allows "fans to take pictures with Neptune and Noire, wake up to their voices, and enjoy other exciting features"... wowsers.

HYPERDIMENSION NEPTUNIA VICTORY hits the European market on March 15 2013 (March 12 North America) for the PS3.
