The exploration is done in a 2D side-scrolling fashion, and enemy battles begin every time you make contact with an enemy. Like any other RPG, you can start out the battle by hitting them first to gain advantage; and similar to the Valkyrie Profile combat system, each characters take actions by pressing the button that is assigned to each.
Aside from the new gameplay video, Compile Heart also updated the official japanese website for Super Neptunia RPG and added a new character — Artisan; the representation of Artisan Studios the developer and studio of the game.
