The Gamindustri Graveyard is a place where the fallen and obsolete of Gamindustri drift to. This grim spot is also said to be the residence for goddesses who have forsaken their duties, to slumber and be forgotten by time. It serves as a dungeon, Arfoire's place of residence, the location of the Colosseum, and the headquarters of the Arfoire Syndicate of International Crime. It makes an appearance in Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 and the remake Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2 SISTERS GENERATION.
The Gamindustri Graveyard is a dark landmass littered with defunct objects such as old pieces of gaming consoles and technology. The sky radiates a grim dark aura, paired with dark roaring thunderclouds and lightning. Yellow liquid flows through some places in the graveyard. Large pipes are scattered everywhere, sticking in and out of the ground, eventually branching in the middle. Filled with television screens, a noticeable lone tower stands out in the middle, where the large pipes branch off.
Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2
The Gamindustri Graveyard serves as Arfoire's landmass and the location of ASIC's headquarters. It makes its first appearance three years prior to Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2's set present. Purple Heart, Black Heart, White Heart, and Green Heart were battling CFW Magic. Due to the lack of Shares, Magic was able to best the CPUs and defeat them with ease. Nepgear and the CPUs were then bound in the graveyard in captivity for three years.
Following the three years, IF and Compa are assigned by Histoire to rescue Nepgear and the CPUs in the Gamindustri Graveyard. Compa manages to free Nepgear with a Sharicite until it shatters due to lack of power. Because of the Sharicite's shattering and CFW Judge's opposition, IF and Compa escape the graveyard with Nepgear only.
Nepgear and her companions later return in the Gamindustri Graveyard to rescue the CPUs. They defeat and destroy CFW Judge, letting them liberate the CPUs.
Nepgear and her companions were called back after a sudden burst of activity in the Gamindustri Graveyard. At their arrival, they find CFW Magic, who is furthering her ambitions to reviving Arfoire. They fight her, but CFW Magic overcomes them. Before she can slaughter them, the CPUs arrive on time to fend her off.
Arfoire eventually revives in the Gamindustri Graveyard. Nepgear and her companions defeat her, resulting in the demise of her current form. Through the path towards the True Ending, Arfoire gets revived again. Once again, Nepgear and her party defeat her. Along with Arfoire's complete demise, and the Gamindustri Graveyard collapses into the ocean.
