Unfortunately for PS4 and PC players, Neptune is a Switch-exclusive. Dressed in a swimsuit, she is different from the existing HMS Neptune DLC character which is available for the aforementioned platforms. Currently, there are no plans to release Hyperdmension Neptunia’s Neptune to PS4 and Steam.
As Azur Lane: Crosswave is developed by both Idea Factory and Compile Heart, it is no surprise that Neptune will feature as a DLC character, considering that Hyperdimension Neptunia is also developed by the same companies. For the Azur Lane mobile game, its first collaboration event was with Hyperdimension Neptunia. Neptune, Noire, Vert and Blanc appeared in the crossover event, titled Visitors from Another Dimension.
