It’s finally heading to the West! After a release last year in Japan, Compile Heart’s ‘Fairy Fencer F’ (published by Idea Factory in Japan and NIS America everywhere else) has been getting some rave reviews and quite a bit of positive publicity which is making Western JRPG fans even more excited to get their hands on what is to be another great video game import.
The PlayStation 3 exclusive is set to hit local shelves in September of this year with North America getting it on the 16th and Europe on the 19th. With only a month to go until the release, NIS America are doing us all a solid by releasing a nice new batch of screenshots that happen to showcase some of the more dialogue-heavy gameplay moments of the new title. These screenshots will introduce you, somewhat, to the characters who will follow you on your journey as well as a nice example of some of the exchanges you’ll be having along the way.
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. – NIS America
