Last week, we revealed the newest PS3 game from the makers of Hyperdimension Neptunia, but now, we have some more details on the story and characters, including a girl who’s a masochist.
Fairy Fencer F is the first game from Compile Heart under their new brand Galapagos RPG, which they claim is targeted towards “specific Japanese customers” (we’re still not sure what they mean by that).
As we reported earlier, the game is being developed by Neptunia Team, who have joined forces with the Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano and Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu’s band Earthbound Papas.
The story is set in a world where long, long ago, a goddess and an evil god warred against each other with special weapons that would later be named “Furies”. Through the power of those weapons, both parties eventually vanished from the world without a trace. Now, knights called “Fencers” travel across the world, searching for the Furies.
Along with the big name developers working on the game, there are also some popular voice talent, including Ryouta Oosaka (Maou from Hataraku Maou-sama!), Kaori Ishihara (Azusa from HenNeko), and Rumi Ookub0 (Yuzuko from Yuyushiki). You can read about their characters below:
Fang (CV: Ryouta Oosaka)
A young boy who just became a Fencer. He’s an honest person with a self-indulgent and lazy personality, but when he is focused on something, he is unstoppable.
Remember this. I decide my own destiny. My own will is my own destiny.
Tiara (CV: Kaori Ishihara)
Another Fencer who behaves like a lady with a gentle, yet serious and slightly masochistic personality. She collects Furies in order to revive the goddess. She is surprisingly scary when she’s mad, but she likes being verbally abused by Fang.
Dear traveler, you must be tired. I have just made some chamomile tea. If you will allow me the pleasure, let us drink together.
Alyn (CV: Rumi Ookubo)
A fairy who lives inside Fang’s Fury and has lost her memory. She acts arrogantly to everyone she meets and thinks of Fang as an idiot, even though they are alike in some ways.
In case you’re curious about fairies, we’re delicate things. Especially cute fairies like me.
In addition, Fairy Fencer F uses a battle system similar to the Neptunia games’, but it will be much more evolved. For now, we just know that there will be the ability to execute mid-air combos and Avalanche Attacks in which every member of your party attack at once.
When you fight, you also earn Weapon Points, which you can use to customize your weapons, enhancing their stats and learning new combos, spells, special attacks, and abilities.
Fairy Fencer F is scheduled to be released sometime this year. Until then, we’ll keep you updated with news of this title, as well as the three other games Compile Heart is working on.
