Story

A world known as Gamindustri is protected by the four CPUs (Console Patron Units, the goddesses) and their sisters, the CPU candidates. Brutal enemies along with ferocious monsters that appeared were quickly defeated by the collaboration between the CPUs and the CPU candidates. The world has become a bit boring due to the amount of peace in the world. But then two writers “Famitsu” and “Dengekiko” decide to give the Goddesses and their sisters task and challenges while they do reports on them. While they do that there is an unknown force causing more monsters and dangers to appear.

Final comments: This Hyperdimension game was surprisingly different. Although there wasn’t really a story this time, I felt like I got to know the characters a bit more better. The gameplay is very fun and flashy. The “Clothes Break” system is a bit embarrassing to look at but that doesn’t destroy the game. Missions are a bit repetitive and had me going “Come on, Tamsoft”. I wish the story had more answers and was a bit more serious. I recommend this game to Hyperdimension fans but others may or may not like this game. But this game is very fun and I loved almost every second of it. I love Hyperdimension! ❤
