A Newcomer’s Guide to Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online

Even goddesses need a little backup once in awhile!

Arianne Advincula's Avatar Posted by PR/Marketing Coordinator, Idea Factory International

Calling all “Chosen Ones!” You’ve been granted first access to Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online. The game is available tomorrow on PS4!

With nine classes to choose from, it can be challenging to pick one. Check out tour new player’s guide to help you choose your class and dive straight into the world of Alsgard!

What is 4 Goddesses Online?

4 Goddesses Online is an MMORPG game within the game Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online! So what does that mean exactly? You’re playing as characters playing an MMORPG.

Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online isn’t an MMORPG, but it’s a hack ‘n’ slash action RPG with gameplay elements like job classes and a chat system. There’s even a multiplayer mode that allows you to team up with other players in your region if you have a PlayStation Plus subscription.

Nine Character Classes

The world of Alsgard was created by The Four Goddesses. They have defended Alsgard from the Demon King Jester, and since that infamous battle, one thousand years of peace have passed.

But an ancient evil threatens to rise again…

Choose a character, each with her own unique job class, and fight to save Alsgard!

Goddess
Combat Type: Tank, Damage
Available Weapons: Swords, Axe, Lance, Rapier

Not only do they look Goddess-tier, they are Goddess-tier when it comes to beating baddies left and right. They lack support skills, but this all-rounder class makes up for it with offensive power and a strong defense. The greatest of Chosen Ones may someday call upon the Goddesses’ power…

Paladin
Played by: Neptune
Combat Type: Tank, Support
Available Weapon: Sword

Melee attacks and magic are the Paladin’s middle name! Because of their healing abilities, this is a well-balanced class for starting players or for those who fight to defend others.

This is a class descended from the ancient knights who fought alongside the Goddesses themselves. If you wish to pursue the Paladin class, prepare to use your own life as a shield!

Black Knight
Played by: Noire
Combat Type: Damage
Available Weapon: Spear

Clad in jet-black armor, these fearsome Black Knights charge headfirst into battle to strike the enemy first! Great for close-combat, they can deal damage quickly and with ease.

Black Knights are a class of warriors who lost their loved ones in the war against the Demon King Jester. To become a Black Knight, you must channel the hatred held in your heart into your blade!

Priest
Played by: Blanc
Combat Type: Support, Ranged Magic
Available Weapon: Staff

Priests are vital to any adventuring party. They provide unending support from the rear and must balance dodging enemy attacks and healing their party.

If you are drawn to the call of priesthood, steel yourself against all evils and you will become the light that saves your allies!

Enchanter
Played by: Vert
Combat Type: Elemental, Healer
Available Weapon: Rapier

Enchanters bend the power of nature to their will to buff up their party or heal their allies. As divinators of both magic and healing, they’re an incredible asset to any party. They’re the only class able to imbue the party’s weapons with elemental abilities.

Those enchanted by the Enchanter class can look forward to juggling quick, close-combat swordplay and long-range support!

Mage
Combat Type: Ranged Magic
Available Weapon: Staff

Mages wield powerful magic to exploit enemies’ elemental weaknesses and gain the upper hand. Long-range offensive skills are a mage’s expertise — use it to annihilate enemies!

Simple magic existed in Alsgard until the monster witch Merlin developed magic to its highest potential. Now, spellcasters wield this dangerous magic to their advantage!

Thief
Combat Type: Ranged DPS
Available Weapons: Pistols

Quick to the draw with their pistols, thieves scurry about on the battlefield and catch enemies off guard. High speed and long-range attacks make them great damage-dealers.

Hailing from the Thieves Guild, thieves are only interested in firearms, treasure hunting, and finishing their enemies off quickly!

Samurai
Combat Type: Tank, Damage
Available Weapon: Katana

The swing of a samurai’s katana is beautiful to witness and impossible to predict. A samurai’s offense and defense is controlled with calculated and swift swordplay, making them a perfect tank.

Samurai are descended from knights who learned to wield the katana. Master the ancient art of the katana and you can carve out your own fate!

Ninja
Combat Type: Damage
Available Weapons: Ninjutsu

Lurking in the shadows, Ninjas are swift assassins who can deal multiple attacks with a quick sleight of hand. With their arsenal of attacks, they are best suited for mid-range combat.

Ninjutsu was passed down from the Beast clan whose descendants were scattered after the war. Should you wish to enlist in the Ninja Guild, you must control your spirit to unlock your body’s special abilities!

Party System

Acting as party leader, you can have up to three other AI-controlled members in your party. However, you can switch the lead character whenever you want in a dungeon to try out different classes and skills!

As the party leader, you’ll be able to instruct your party members’ AI with different Tactics. Tactics like “We’ll Nep them up!” are particularly useful when you’re adventuring through a lower-leveled dungeon, for example.

Skills

Characters learn Skills as they level up, and these Skills differ according to her class. Set skills to an action button in the menu, and then you’ll be able to unleash them during battle!

You also have an Awakening Gauge, which fills up when you attack or take damage. Once the bar is full, you can activate your Awakening State and unleash a massive amount of damage with your Skills!

Customization

There’s even a customization mode, so you can dress your party up! With the ability to equip up to five different accessories and attach them to various body parts, each party member can rock her own style!

Conclusion

Even though it’s not actually an MMORPG, there’s an online multiplayer mode so that you can complete special quests with friends. These quests challenge giant boss battles and more, so choose your class wisely for a balanced party!

Which class are you most interested in playing?

I can’t wait to play this! It’s not often to see a Nep game that doesn’t use reused assets and the reviews have been positive across the board. As someone who like getting trophies for fun, this one seems easy and fun.

So samurai tank by parrying, Ruroni Kenshin-style? Anyway, do physical editions (LE, here~) get the Day 1 goodies? Regardless, at least your catsuits are freebies, unlike a certain Secret of release…~

    Ha, I wish. The Day 1 stuff was announced after the LE, so unless they include a surprise code or something in the package, nope.

Question about the themes and avatars, do people who pre-ordered the limited edition get em? If not i find it unfair that people who pay more for the limited dont get them. If we do then no issue. Ether way im uber hyped for the game, even though buying the limited in canada is suuuper expensive

    Ragnawind said:

    The themes are avatars are exclusive to Digital Day One orders on the PS Storefor two weeks and made availalbe to everyone else after that. This was an exclusive bonus prepared by Sony, rather than IFI.

    How would you know if it was Sony’s doing?

I was excited to (and still am) play 4GO, but I find it kind of disappointing that despite even getting a blog post like this, it’s not up on the PS Store yet for pre-order. I was hoping to be able to play it at midnight, but it seems I’ll have to wait until the store updates tomorrow to play it, which can happen as late as 5:00pm in the evening. Not a major problem, but I had been planning to spend most of the day playing, so it’s a bit of a bummer.

    Ragnawind said:

    @LMC-Mitsukai: It might take until that late for the console store to update, but they normally show up my 2PM Eastern Time if you use the Playstation Store on a computer or through the unreliable mobile app version of the store.
