Become Fang, who inadvertently becomes a Fencer.

Fairy Fencer F

NIS America is bringing Fairy Fencer F to North America and Europe via retail and digital channels in 2014, the company announced.

The Compile Heart-developed turn-based RPG features concept art from Yoshitaka Amano, character art from Tsunako, and music from Nobuo Uematsu, each known for their work on the Final Fantasy series.

The game will feature audio in both Japanese and English.

Find a story blurb below.

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.

Watch the announcement trailer below.

  • LordKaiser

    Can we call the 2014 the year of the RPGs? Just about time! but…. the money… I’m broke! :(

    • bloodiOS

      Time to follow Kutaragi’s advice a few years back and work more jobs?

  • Stacy Connor

    Well, this made my day. Really enjoyed the demo and can’t wait for this to release in the West and such!

  • MitsukiIX

    Let the button mashing commence!

  • Alkhan

    I’m surprised

    • Budgiecat

      why. I never really doubted it….

  • Elvick

    Yay :D

    Great time to be a niche JRPG fan.

    • Budgiecat

      JRPG’s are niche

      • Elvick

        Final Fantasy isn’t… and Pokemon.

        Everything else is.

        Plus, there’s different ‘tiers’ to niche-ness.

        • Budgiecat

          That’s 2 series out of the entire industry…

          • Elvick

            I don’t make JRPG IPs popular.

            There are couple more (Dragon Quest) in Japan, but worldwide that’s all there is in the main stream. Most people know about Pokemon and Final Fantasy.

            But they don’t know about Tales or Persona, or SMT in general. And then there are people who know of those, but don’t know the Compile Heart/Gust/etc. games.
