Nepstrius N2 is an Energy Layer released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It debuted in western countries with the release of the Starter Pack Nepstrius N2 Vertical Zephyr.
In-depth information for Hasbro’s Nepstrius N2 Energy Layer will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.
Unlike Takara Tomy's Nova Neptune, Hasbro's Nepstrius N2 has its large sloped blades made of colored plastic instead of clear plastic, creating a somewhat heavier weight than Nova Neptune. Aside from this and the use of softer plastic, Hasbro's Nepstrius N2 is virtually unchanged from its Takara Tomy counterpart; with the same round shape and six-bladed design.
However, what sets it apart from Nova Neptune is that Nepstrius N2's slopes are stronger than Nova Neptune's weak teeth. This makes Nepstrius N2 a better option over Nova Neptune, despite having reduced Stamina due to the softer plastic construction. While it is too light to be competitive in the current metagame, it does have potential in the Burst Classic Format.
As such, Hasbro's Nepstrius N2 is recommended for collection purposes only in the Burst Standard and Hasbro-Only Formats, but is a welcome addition in the Burst Classic Format.
