NIS America are bringing Fairy Fencer F , the latest title from developer Compile Heart ( Hyperdimension Neptunia ), to both Europe and North America this month.
There is a lot to be excited about, with character designs from both Tsunako ( Hyperdimension Neptunia ) and Yoshitaka Amano ( Final Fantasy I-VI ) and a soundtrack provided by the incredible Nobuo Uematsu, the composer for many of the Final Fantasy titles. We can’t forget that Fairy Fencer F will also feature the next evolution of Neptunia’s battle engine.
About the game:
Long ago, a dreadful war was fought between the Goddess and the Vile God. Because they were equally matched, they both created a vast number of special weapons imbued with their godly energy, each containing the life force of a fairy. Armed with these weapons, the deities continued their conflict until they finally sealed each other away into the great unknown. A long time has passed since this ancient conflict, and the weapons created by the Goddess and the Vile God have since been scattered across the world. These weapons—now known as “Furies”—are highly sought after by warriors who call themselves “Fencers”. It is said that whoever collects a Fury will be granted one wish. When a young man named Fang decides to rashly pull a Fury from a stone, he inadvertently becomes a Fencer himself, forever altering the course of his destiny.
Check out the “Fairize” trailer, showing characters merging with their fairy partners, allowing them to smash enemies with some crazy, over-the-top special attacks:
Fairy Fencer F will be available both digitally and physically for the PlayStation 3 in North America on September 16th and in Europe on September 19th thanks to NIS America .
A sequel titled Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force has been announced and is due in 2015 for PlayStation 4.
