Finally we’re getting a current-gen Hy—Dimension game. And the cool thing is we’re getting a few new things, too. You can link up (all new!) characters for stronger attacks (you could sort of do that already, but presumably this is indeed something new) and break enemies into little pieces, lowering their stats. Dismantling enemies is complemented by a second transformation mode, in which you can “break those big baddies into bits”. And when you complete a dungeon under the time limit (part of a mini-game homage to Spelunker, apparently), you’ll win special items.
There are also three worlds to save, three stories to read (the series is a bit like a visual novel after all), and the environments now look almost like they were made for the PS3 (Megadimension is a PS4 exclusive).
That’s a whole generation better than the Hyperdimension games looked on the PS3!
