Learn about the Battle System below!


V-Idols are virtual idols from distant dimensions who were summoned by Faira to save Planet Emote from the Antis.


Vtubers are real-life internet stars who have been kidnapped by the Antis to destroy Planet Emote’s content. The Gamindustri Goddesses and V-Idols must collect V-Cubes from defeated V-Hunters to save the Vtubers.

Battle System

Toggle Between Characters in Real Time!

During battle, players can immediately switch between the Neptunia Goddesses and V-Idols! The Neptunia Goddesses fight using third-person shooter mechanics, while the V-Idols use hack n’ slash action mechanics.

Take advantage of enemies by using the battle mechanic it is weak against!

Battle Mechanics (Goddesses)


All four Goddesses can use a skill called “boost” to swiftly evade attacks! Maintain distance from enemies to remain unharmed!

Tokimeki Flash:

The Goddesses can use their bullets to purify the souls of the Antis! Every successful attack fills up the purification gauge to activate “Tokimeki Flash”. Once activated, players will be able to deal massive damage, receive less damage from foes, and stun enemies!

Battle Mechanics (V-Idols)

Step Charm:

Players can activate a V-Idol’s “Step Charm” with a perfectly-timed evade to be temporarily granted unlimited MP!

Execution Finisher:

When a player defeats an enemy with a V-Idol’s skill, “OVER FLOW” will be displayed on the screen. This will trigger the V-Idol’s “Execution Finisher”, an incredibly strong attack which also grants boosts to the player’s HP recovery and MP limit.


The Neptunia Virtual Stars Limited Edition will be available for preorder on February 2!

It will be available for $109.99 and qualifies for FREE US domestic shipping.
