With numerous pieces of information currently available for Fairy Fencer F, a new promo trailer for Compile Heart’s upcoming RPG has finally been released. The game’s staff consists of Final Fantasy veterans like Yoshitaka Amano, who designed the concept art for this game, and Nobuo Uematsu, who is composing the music with his new band, The Earthbound Papas. The developing team behind Fairy Fencer F is Team Neptune, responsible for the Hyperdimension Neptunia games.

The trailer takes everything we currently know about the game and puts it all into action. The game takes place in a world where Furies, weapons once used by gods warring against each other, are now used by warriors called Fencers. The protagonist, Fang, becomes a Fencer after rescuing another Fencer named Tiara. The gameplay action looks colorful and stylish, and the RPG elements appear to contain a lot of depth with features that allow players control over dungeons and battle monsters. There is also the “Fairize” feature, where Furies can be merged with the Fairies lying dormant inside them to bring out their full potential. The narrations sounds hilarious, and it can imply that the characters are going to be as colorfully-written as they are designed.
Fairy Fencer F will be released in Japan for the PlayStation 3 on September 19. There will be a limited edition package that includes a side-story novel, two illustrated cards, and a “Secret Date” drama CD. Those who preorder, however, will get an illustration art book for the game.
No word on an overseas release has been announced at the moment, but hopefully Compile Heart can garner interest in releasing the game to the West.
