As the year comes to a close, Idea Factory International has announced that we can look forward to a trio games from Idea Factory & Compile Heart coming to Steam on PC. Several signs over the past few months had pointed to something like this happening, such as IFI expressing interest in the PC platform and listings for the Hyperdimension Neptunia for PC games appearing on rating board sites like the ESRB. While there aren’t many details along with this initial announcement, at least we now know for sure that Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 & 2, as well as Fairy Fencer F will be getting a PC-only release on Steam sometime in the future (Hopefully sooner rather than later). Since Re;Birth 2 is coming out early next year on PS Vita, it would be great if the PC version would follow soon after.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 Story
In the world of Gamindustri, four goddesses known as CPUs battled for supremacy in the War of the Guardians. One of the CPUs – Neptune – was defeated by the others and banished from the heavens. In her fall from grace, her memories were lost but a mysterious book reveals itself to Neptune with knowledge of all of Gaminudstri’s history. Joined by Compa, IF, and the sentient book known as Histoire, Neptune embarks on an extraordinary journey across four different nations on a quest to save the entire world!
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation Story
20XX – Gamindustri faces a dire crisis! Ever since the advent of ASIC – the Arfoire Syndicate of International Crime – morality has all but vanished. As much as 80 percent of all students are rumored to worship a being known as Arfoire, and the authorities have chosen to turn a blind eye to the threat. Basically, Gamindustri is pretty messed up, you guys. Ahem. Thus did Gamindustri fall into complete and utter disarray. Will the goddesses be able to reclaim their world from ASIC’s grasp, or will they be forced to wander the
Gamindustri Graveyard, forever lost?
Fairy Fencer F Story
Long ago, a dreadful war was fought between the Goddess and the Vile God. Equally matched, they created a vast number of special weapons imbued with their godly energy, each containing the life force of a fairy. With the passing of time, the weapons left behind by the Goddess and the Vile God are now known as “Furies,“ and the warriors who wield them “Fencers”. Due to their immense power, rumor has it that anyone who collects the Furies will have their wish granted. As luck would have it, a young man named Fang acquires one of the Furies, accidentally becoming a Fencer. He soon rescues Tiara, a fellow Fencer, and this fateful encounter draws him into the ancient battle between the Goddess and Vile God.
