Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed coming to North America and Europe in 2015

When in 2015? Spring it would seem - so it is far closer to happening than some might have been expecting. To go along with this announcement, we have some new screens and a trailer to share as well!

Here is the press release:

Prepare yourself for a whirlwind of fast-paced action! Hyperdimension Neptunia­™ U: Action Unleashed, the first-ever foray into the 3D action hack 'n' slash genre for the Hyperdimension Neptunia universe, will be coming to North America and Europe Spring 2015! It will be available exclusively on the PlayStation®Vita in both retail and digital formats. Featuring new playable characters, as well as customizable equipment and over-the-top skills that haven't been seen in previous Neptunia games, this title has something to offer to old fans of the series and new fans alike.

Key Features
Street brawling! For the first time ever, your favorite Neptunia characters will have to hack 'n' slash their way through waves of enemies in real time! In the free-roaming stages, you'll get to create chain combos both on the ground and in the air.

Two-person party! With the Dual System, you'll be able to switch between two characters on the battlefield. Balance out each character's strengths and weaknesses to create the ultimate battle duo, and even get some new playable characters - some of whom might be familiar from previous Neptunia games.

Let's get physical! The heat of battle can cause some wear and tear on your outfits. When you experience a "Costume Break," your outfits will tear, lowering your defense but increasing your critical rate and EXE Drive Gauge. The road to comebacks is paved with ripped fabric!

Skills get the kills! Fill up the EXE Drive Gauge in order to clear the room with two tiers of special attacks, and you might just get a helping hand from your friend later on to perform some super special attacks!

Here are the screens:
