Sting Entertainment and Compile Heart partner up once again after their last collaboration to create Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, a spin-off the Neptunia franchise. From the minds that brought us Yggdra Union and Riviera: The Promised Land, this certainly isn’t new territory for Sting or Compile Heart that are both known for strategic infused titles, but bringing the two together does make for an interesting combination and use of the Neptunia brand. In a myriad of ways, this little spin-off is better than the main series, but not completely without a few nagging issues.
Alleviating some of the issues of the first game and still keeping some other nuisances into the mix, Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 does a fair job of applying bandages to some otherwise large wounds. However, that does not keep it from being enjoyable for certain audiences.
