Compile Heart-made PS3 RPG due out late September.

Fairy Fencer F

Fairy Fencer F will launch for PlayStation 3 in North America on September 23 and in Europe on September 26, NIS America announced.

A $74.99 limited edition including a copy of the game, a hardcover art book, original soundtrack with jewel case, collector’s box, and a seven-inch wide beanie, is now available for pre-order on the NIS America Online Store.

The game, developed by Hyperdimension Neptunia studio Compile Heart, is a turn-based RPG featuring character art by Tsunako, concept art by Yoshitaka Amano, and music by Nobuo Uematsu.

Find a full summary and list of key features 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.

Key Features

  • Robust Combat System – Witness the next evolution of Hyperdimension Neptunia’s battle engine! Move your characters in a fully 3-D environment as you link combos in thrilling turn-based combat! Exploit enemy weaknesses to trigger Avalanche Attacks and watch your party gang up on opponents! Send your enemies sky high with Launch Attacks, then follow up with an Air Attack to send them crashing back to Earth! And if fights get really tense, simply transform into your upgraded Fury Form and really bring the pain!
  • Untold Levels of Customization – Use the Furies you collect to give your characters powerful abilities, or use them to customize dungeons to your exact specifications! Need a little more “oomph!” in your swing? We’ve got a Shaping Effect for that! Want some extra experience points after battle? We’ve got a Shaping Effect for that too! But what if you’re a masochist who wants everyone—allies and enemy alike—to deal DOUBLE damage? Oh, you best believe we’ve got a Shaping Effect for that!
  • Artistic Pedigree – Enjoy the dulcet tones of renowned composer Nobuo Uematsu, the composer for many of the Final Fantasy titles. With character designs by Tsunako (Hyperdimension Neptunia) and Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy I-VI), the line between cute and menacing has never been more blurred!

    PS3 jrpg fans are gonna be so happy this fall. Tales of Xillia 2, this and Ar Nosurge! Yes!!

      Plus, Tecmo-Koei usually releases their Atelier games in the Fall too. They haven’t announced a local Shallie yet… but considering every Atelier game this gen has made it outside of Japan, I’m assuming it’s going to join those 3 you mentioned on the PS3 this fall as well :D

    • Kuro-Law

      Also if you own a Vita cause Tales of Heart R and Oreshika Tainted Bloodlines.

  • zakou

    This is a must for me, i like the combat, the design and the overall visuals but have 0 information on the story and will keep it this way :)

    Maybe nothing special but stilla a buy for me.

  • LunarHaven

    So let’s see, this game looks highly interesting, Atelier Escha and Logy came out this year, Type-O HD is on its way, Atelier Shallie is in the making, Xillia 2 about to release, Hearts R later this year, FF XV next year? Tales of Zestiria coming in a bit over a year probably, Sakaguchi announcing a new game soon… Xenoblade X almost complete… Is it just me or are we in JRPG heaven equal to that of the PS2 era again?!

    This is insane…

  • Anime10121

    Reserved. But not that limited version. I just want the game. I hope it’s long. I’ve seen WAY too many short ones these days. Even RPGs. I wanna play games for weeks like the old days.

    I thought this release date was set already… I’ve had it set in my phone for 2 months now.

  • pekot

    I hope it is not bad like time and eternity

  • kurbstar2

    not really worth it to buy anything NISA on release day until they show they have better quality assurance and playtesting. Still waiting on that hundred knights patch for that crash that has screwed me over quite a few times
