Idea Factory has released new details about Super Neptunia RPG – highlighting its various quests.
In particular, the game will offer up platforming and monster-hunting challenges in various forms. From the looks of things, players will have enough content to sink their teeth into.
Check it all out below, courtesy of Gematsu:
◆ Magic Gems / Magic Gem Switches
In towns and dungeons, “Magic Gems” and “Magic Gem Switches” are scattered about. By touching a Magic Gem, you can obtain it, and by examining a Magic Gem Switch, a challenge will begin.
Magic Gem Challenge
By examining a Magic Gem Switch, a Magic Gem will appear and a “challenge” will begin. If you obtain all of the Magic Gems within the time limit, you will clear the challenge and obtain a Magic Gem.
If you go over the time limit, the Magic Gems will disappear and you will fail the challenge. If you are unable to clear a challenge, you can always just try it again.
The Magic Gems you collect can be exchanged for equipment at NPCs in dungeons, so be sure to keep an eye out for them.
You can receive Quests by talking to the NPCs in towns and dungeons.
In (1) in the the above example, the “!” mark indicates that you can talk to the NPC to receive a Quest. In (2) the star mark indicates that a Quest is already in progress. Since you might complete the Quest as you are playing through the story, there is no harm in accepting the Quests you pass by.
Since Quests have no effect on the story, you are free to take them on at your own pace. You cannot cancel a Quest once accepted.
You can see which Quests and Hunt Quests you have accepted in the Quest menu.
- (1) The list of accepted Quests
- (2) Indicates whether or not a Quest is active – By choosing a Quest, you can set it to “Active,” and a check mark will appear. You can only have one Quest active at a time.
- (3) Quest type (subjugation)
- (4) Quest type (fetch / delivery)
- (5) Quest objective
- (6) Reward
- (7) Where to go
If a Quest is set to active, the Quest objective can be displayed.
You can pull up and hide the navigation that displays the Quest objective with the R2 button.
◆ Hunt Quests
Each town has a Guild where you can take on Hunt Quests. Upon accepting a Hunt Quest, the target monster will appear in a dungeon. Depending on the monster, it may be lurking in an area not displayed on the dungeon map.
- (1) Reward – The reward you will receive for defeating the monster.
- (2) Target Monster – The monster you need to defeat.
- (3) Where to Find It – The name of the dungeon where the monster will appear.
There are Hunt Quests recommended for players from Levels 5 and 100, but if you are confident and have the skill for it, you can take on a Hunt Quest regardless of level. Also, defeating the target monster will earn you experience points and drops.
Super Neptunia RPG is now out in Japan. The game will be heading west in Spring 2019.
