Introducing Fang, Eryn, Tiara, Harley, and others.

Fairy Fencer F

NIS America has released the first English screenshots of Fairy Fencer F

The Compile Heart-made turn-based RPG is coming to PlayStation 3 on September 23 in North America and September 26 in Europe.

The screenshots introduce some of the characters you’ll meet during the game. Pictured faces include:

  • Fang - The main character and a foul-mouthed Fencer. He’s something of a hedonist with a lazy streak, but he always pulls through when he’s needed.
  • Eryn - Fang’s fairy partner. She thinks Fang is an idiot and is rather condescending to him.
  • Tiara - A refined Fencer who takes things quite seriously. She might be slightly masochistic, but prepare to be terrified if you get her mad.
  • Harley - A Fencer and fairyologist, she’s got an unhealthy obsession with all things fairy. She’s rather scatterbrained when it comes to anything outside the realm of her research.
  • Bahus - Harley’s fairy partner. He looks tough, but he’s actually an accomplished cook and domestic caretaker.
  • Pippin - A mysterious Fencer full of wisdom. How does his brain operate with a sword stabbed through his head? Who knows?
  • Soji - Pippin’s dashing, gentlemanly fairy partner. He’s a well-mannered butler who’s often mistaken for a Fencer.
  • Sherman - A Fencer who desires world peace and wants to keep Furies out of evil hands. He exudes style in his dress and speech. That’s probably why he and Fang don’t get along.
  • Ryushin - Sherman’s fairy partner. Serious, stern, and robotic in appearance – he can be stubborn and unwavering in his thoughts at times.

    Still images………….

    • Elvick

      Trailers are hard… or something.

      • MrFinalgamer

        I’m guessing he’s talking about the dialogue being still images, and not using character models…

        • OverlordZetta

          Well good. The last time they tried that (Neptunia MK2) it was terrible.

          They’re good at doing this and they should keep doing it this way, I say.

    • DyLaN

      Those images actually moving in-game though. And it definitely shows more movement than what I remember in some of CH past/current games.

    Fang the food lover, lots of funny lines in the game

  • Elvick

    If only the world could run on tears.

    Looking forward to playing this.

  • zakou

    Gotta love the outfits/design, a lot of work has been put into these characters looks.

  • Budgiecat

    the 2D still cutscenes make so much sense….cause… they’re talking to each other but staring at you the player -_-

    • Shippoyasha

      Meh. Visual novel styles. They are wacky.

      • Kevadu

        Well, in a typical visual novel the scene is supposed to be from your viewpoint. You’re actually looking through the eyes of a character in the game. So it does make a little more sense than when RPGs use the same viewpoint but with all the characters in the scene on the screen…

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          Not really, in this case you aren’t look through the eyes of the main character you are an outside view that watches over all view points. Fang may be the main character but that doesn’t make you him.

          • Kevadu

            That’s what I was saying…

          • Willgaea

            So we are some invisible stalker that never partakes in the action.

            • Kumiko Akimoto

              No we are an outside viewer who isn’t apart of the game. It’s 3rd person omnipresent I think.

              • Willgaea

                awe man.

    • BizarreJelly

      It’s definetly a form of cut scene that I’m growing tired of.

    • zakou

      It makes people like you and me that are foreveralone feel special, imagine it is as if we are there with them! xD

  • Bobby Jennings

    I’ve been playing the Japanese version of this. Looking forward to the english dub

    • Budgiecat

      didnt you say it wasnt that good?

      • Bobby Jennings

        You probably heard that from someone else :x

        • Zackasaur

          So it IS that good, eh? :3

          • Bobby Jennings

            Much better than Hyperdimension games.

            Sadly the FPS issues still plague the game, but the combat is much more fun.

            • Zackasaur

              Sweet! Thanks~

  • https://twitter.com/Stealth___ Stealth

    I am looking forward to this

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Tiara doesn’t have a partner?

    • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

      Cui doesn’t really have a personality, and he/she doesn’t really talk, from what I have seen…

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Ahh

  • Akari Akaza

    Tiara is scary…..0_0

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      More tsundere than scary

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        It’s always the tsundere characters who end up a closet masochist

  • new_tradition

    Interested in the game. I heard the soundtrack and thought it was great. I never really got interested in the HyperDimension series, so I don’t mind the game allegedly being a reskin of one. Dialog here in the screenshots seems pretty funny.

    Any word on English VAs?

  • Willgaea

    “It only feels cold to you because you are stupid.”

    Hah

  • Comandante Bushido

    Bewbs. . Sold

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    I’ll wait and see about whether or not to buy this. I have been dissapointed by Drakengard 3 & The Witch and the Hundred Knight already. So i’ll wait for this and buy most likely after release.

  • Yaro

    Greentexting in the complaints section.

  • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

    Pippin is a foreign sounding name now? Goodness…Soji and Ryushin are pretty easy japanese names, seen quite a fair bit (or in derivative) in anime and the like, not too hard.

  • http://momentsreprieve.com/index/ Aushria

    Green… what? If you are referring to the “>” I’ve always done that, so I don’t know what you are referring to. =/

  • Yaro

    Oh so you just opt to not use complete sentences, ok then. Dont mind me.

  • MrFinalgamer

    Pippin is the name of one of the hobbits in Lord of the Rings! I doubt that name will be foreign to anyone.

  • DyLaN

    Nah, she a verbal masochist. Definitely not the literal one.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    They announced that back when the game was just coming out in japan.

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Tiara isn’t bad just a supreme tsun tsun

  • DyLaN

    NISA edited it to Harley IIRC.

  • LordKaiser

    One little pulling….

  • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

    Because she looks like an outlaw motorcyclist. <_<

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Oh nm

  • Sentsuizan_93

    In all fairness, it could be a lot more awkward.
    *cough*Yuuto->York*cough*

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Verbal is apart of masochism though

  • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

    Well that’s better. But being a sadist or masochistic isn’t very heroic. It’s not my taste in terms of chara I’d like to play.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    What a buzz kill

  • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

    Yeah. My bad I’m late. I just kept hearing she was a hero and trying to stop her evil sadist sister.

  • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

    So she wants people to insult her? Everytime i like the designs of a compile heart game they let me down with these sex fantasy gimmicks.

  • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

    I rather she be abusive. <_< Better than being a closet tsundere like in Neptunia.

  • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

    Another guy said she loves being verbally assaulted. I’ll pass.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    No I think she just enjoys being verbally assaulted.
    It’s most likely a joke trait, that’s how these things usually work in animesque things

  • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

    It’s also the name of an award winning broadway musical, meaning it’s got non-gamer/nerd knowledge =P There’s plenty more references too, so either way that comment was…ill-conceived.

    She’s one of several female characters
