In this week’s Famistu, it was revealed that Compile Heart’s next PlayStation 3 title, Fairy Fencer F, will be arriving in Japan on September 17 of this year. The game is the first in the new line of titles under what Compile Heart calls the ‘Galapagos RPG game brand‘ which are RPGs catered to Japan-specific customers. Whether that means they have no intention to localize the titles under this brand is unknown at this point.

While screenshots show it being another typical Compile Heart game, some famed names for those involved in the game’s development has piqued the interest of those who aren’t exactly the biggest fans of the titles under company’s belt. With concept artist Yoshitaka Amano and composer Nobuo Uematsu, both known for their work on the Final Fantasy series, who wouldn’t be interested? Music will also come from Uematsu’s band, Earthbound Papas. Add to that, in the same recent Famistu, it was revealed that Toshiki Inoue (Death NoteChaos;HeadDevil May Cry: The Animated Series, and Kamen Rider fame) will be writing the game’s scenario.

So while the game is being made for “Japan-specific customers”, I do hope that won’t stop them from localizing the game in the West under the new brand. I can easily say there are customers here who have a taste similar to those whom Compile Hearts is catering to. I’m not the biggest fan myself, but I do appreciate and still support the unique experiences their games have to offer.

    still unsure

  • I can’t NOT throw money at the screen. Nobuo Uematsu? Music is going to be fantastic. Yoshitaka Amano? Art direction is going to be amazing. As much as I disliked Death Note, I cannot in good conscience say that the storyline was poorly written.

    I must have it.
