Fairy Fencer F Demo Coming On Thursday

imageCurious about Fairy Fencer F, the Compile Heart RPG from the Neptunia team that doesn’t involve CPUs? Compile Heart will release a demo of the PS3 game on October 31, the same day it comes out in Japan it’s already out in Japan.


The demo will let players control the protagonist Fang, the mad scientist-like researcher Harler, and the mascot character with a sword in its head Pipin. Players will be able to try out the battle system and see some of the events in Fairy Fencer F.

    Hah. Meanwhile I’m likely to beat it by the end of the week. Easily Compile Heart’s best game.

    • Malon

      How’s the story ?

      • Demeanor

        I don’t think he has it yet, the article says it comes out on the 31st (Thu). We’re always all hoping that the next game will be better than the last :)

        • raitouniverse

          The game came out on the 10th of October.

          • Demeanor

            Thanks for the corrections guys, yeah, GFaqs too says it was out on 10th. I’m actually glad I was wrong this time :D I’m gonna go read the Q&A session a few posts above now.

          the demo is coming 31st, the full game was released on day 10 of this month.

        I honestly am enjoying it a lot. Only the three main characters (Fang, Tiara and Alyn) have any development but its good development. The game is also a lot more violent than most Compile Heart games and JRPGs in general. There’s suicide, the killing of children, on-screen death, etc. Huge twists too – one of which literally made me shout at my screen.

        The game is also incredibly hilarious.

        • Arcana Wiz

          that it’s interesting.

        • Linhua

          … wow. Mindblown.

          … I may have to continue watching this game.

          • FitzpatrickPhillips

            The funniest part is that I only tried the game so I can rag on how bad it is, since I’m not really a compile heart fan. Ended up with a pretty good game.

          • Linhua

            … and i’m one of their (Average) Fans… so I guess i’d be in for a treat then… unless it really IS a Japan Exclusive and it really ISN’T Coming To America .-.

            … thanks, buddy. You have stilled my hope for this game once more.

        • Skeptika Crediblus

          Killing children…. wait, it’s a Cavia game?

        • DesmaX

          Oh, so they actually tried this time around?

          Might just give them another chance

          • FitzpatrickPhillips

            Yep. They actually tried. Just as surprised as you are.

        • There’s suicide, the killing of children, on-screen death, etc.

          Yup, that sounds like Inoue’s handiwork all right.

        • komiko12

          Does those happen to the party members or just side characters?

          • FitzpatrickPhillips

            Not gonna say. Don’t want any spoilers.

        • Lynx

          Any scenes of people falling into..rivers?

          • FitzpatrickPhillips

            Lmao. Why does everyone ask me that?

  • X14

    “October 31, the same day it comes out in Japan.”
    Is this in reference to Re;birth1, the Neptunia game?
    I thought FFF was out earlier this month.

    In any case, it’s a great idea. I didn’t purchase FFF, but this could push it that way.

    • CirnoTheStrongest

      You are correct. FFF already released

  • Kornelious

    Aw man, I thought that said “Fairy Fencer F Coming to….” Guess I gotta wait even LONGER :(

    It can’t possibly take that long now…the game is out so an announcement could be right around the corner….hopefully.

  • Arcana Wiz

    This game seems to be the best work of CH so far, so i’m veryyyy curious to see it! NISA, pleaseeee *puppy eyes*

    • mockturtle

      If we don’t get this after their having announced that we’re getting the Neptunia idol game, I’ll lose all faith in them, to be honest.

      Granted, I won’t stop buying their stuff. But I’ll do so begrudgingly.

      • Daverost

        I’ve been buying begrudgingly for a while. Seems like their treatment of IF/CH games gets worse with every release. Hopefully FFF doesn’t meet a similar fate. But it probably will.

    • Pipe

      I don’t think so. A friend of mine imported it who thought it was ok but I really disliked what I played of it (about 7 hours). The setting gets really grimdark at times and the bits of humor in there are nothing compared to the nep games. The few likable characters like Harler don’t get much time to shine, which is a shame. Its mostly the 3 main characters who do anything of importance and beside Alyn I didn’t like them much. For me Victory is still the best CH game although Re;Birth could change that since I liked the story of the first HDN more.

      • Arcana Wiz

        Well what is making this get my attention is the grimdark story with less humour!

        • Pipe

          Well everyone has different tastes. I didn’t like it but I hope you enjoy it.

        • zazza345

          They didn’t use a in-house writer for this game, but a tokusatsu shows writer (though his best efforts were done in the past). That’s why it’s different.

    • Its probably not the very best. The one thing that sold me on Hyperdimension Neptunia was just the setting and characters. I hope this game is good though.

  • Thrasher429

    Hmm guess I need to go remind myself where the demo section is on the JPN PSN

  • gangrelion

    Isn’t this a bit too late? It has been a while since I finished this game! Well, I guess this demo will still be useful for people who were curious about the game but were not so sure about buying it.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Gonna download it when it comes then. Although it is a bit late to release a demo, wouldn’t hurt to give it a try.

  • I saw the picture and immediately thought it was Shing from Tales of Hearts. Oops. XD

    • Leon_Tekashi

      Wrong franchise my friend, wrong franchise lol

  • James Darkly

    is this demo available for NA?

  • Consider this demo already downloaded and played lol =^_^=

  • Loli Summoner

    It would be cool if neptune was DLC character :) I can wait to try out this game,though I wish the graphics was a bit better…but meh.

    • No she’s too goofy

    • Yes, Neptune should totally be a DLC character like she was in Mugen Souls.

  • Gonna be streaming gameplay this week


  • Sylveria

    Well I know what Im doing before bed tomorrow.

  • Lhomity

    My Limited Edition arrived in the mail today, but I have zero time to play this until the weekend. ;(

  • Nerroth

    It’s up now, along with an online instruction manual:


  • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

    I played the demo today.

    The game is pretty great.
    It not really hard to play if you don’t know Japanese. Which I don’t know.
