Fairy Fencer F Will Be Localized By NIS America

By Spencer . February 13, 2014 . 6:46pm

Logo_NA_FFFFairy Fencer F will be released in the West. NIS America announced at their press event that they will localize Compile Heart’s RPG and plan to release it this fall with Japanese and English voiceovers. Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano created concept art for the game and Neptunia artist Tsunako designed the characters. The game’s music is from iconic RPG composer Nobuo Uematsu.


Fairy Fencer F takes place many years after a war between a Goddess and a Vile God. This war was fought with Furies, magical weapons imbued with a fairy’s life force. When the deities sealed each other away Furies were scattered around the world and warriors called Fencers wield them. Fang, the protagonist in Fairy Fencer F, hears that whoever finds a Fury will be granted a wish and pulls it from a stone when the game begins.

      • Ric Vazquez

        Yeah dude I know what you mean, that plot twist…I really didn’t see that one coming.

      • Crimson_Cloud

        All the emotions are put in that energetic and pleading word. XD

    • Ric Vazquez

      Yes does not even begin to describe the hype I’m feeling right now!

  • Neppygear


  • D H

    Gotta say, it wasn’t really a guarantee, but I never doubted it. Never even put the Japanese version on my list because I was pretty confident, what with the talent and the “talent” behind it. (Joking, of course. Amano’s artwork may not sit well with me, as in actually, it’s one of the few styles I’ve never enjoyed, but its still talent, and I appreciate the fact that there are people out there that do enjoy it.)

  • cloudcaelum

    Dam, nowadays PS3 more live than before.

    • Learii

      PS3 never die if Japanese keep localized their games =D

  • skyenix


  • Kamakuma

    I’ll prepare my wallet for this now. @–@

  • AnotherVistor02

    My wallet is crying and so am I

  • SerendipityX

    I’m cautiously interested in this game.

  • Arcana Drill

    Well this isnt a biiig surprise, but still happy and looking forward it.

  • regreto

  • Farid Belkacemi

    Greaaaaat news !


  • KazukiNanbu


  • Just played the demo from Japanese PSN, and was a awesome game!
    Now it will be localized, that’s great new’s!

  • MitsukiIX

    So NISA where is Nep rebirth?

    • MXC

      Hold on a second there brother! Have you forgotten about IFI? They too will be localizing games this year!

  • DesmaX

    Might just buy this, if there isn’t any other game that interest me when this releases

    • Stranger On The Road

      errrr…. a hint, you could always buy either one later! They don’t go out of stock right after release; with the exception of limited/collectors edition that might get sold out before release.

  • Varnes


  • Keko

    God bless you, based Tsunako!

  • lordsofskulls

    ANOTHER One from NIS o.o Danganronpa 2 + this… not to mention all other games out their for PS Vita…

    Okay it official it the year OF VITA!!!! Wohoooo ;3

    • Asclepius

      uhh, isn’t this for PS3?
      but hopefully there’ll be a vita port soon enough since I feel better playing on the go.

      • lordsofskulls

        ;3 true but i am just hoping… ;) + alot of RPGS on PS3 have enhanced editions on PS Vita

  • Renaldi Saputra

    wow, it has come true
    for a galapagos RPG which they said “only for japanese”
    NISA will be always blessed

    • Stranger On The Road

      Targeted at Japanese gamers and without any influence from outside Japan. That is very different.

  • Earthjolly

    So how good was this game recieved in japan?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      quite well

  • Tyler Beale

    Glad this is coming over!

    On a related note, I’m sad that there’s no Neptunia-related news from NISA. Coincedentially, Compile Heart posted a new trailer of the Noire game (yep, that’s what I’m calling it, until an English name that makes sense comes out) earlier, which actually has gameplay footage! (and some of the same menus as Victory, yet again)

    At least a realease date for Neptunia PP (<–that actually stands for something) would've been nice.

  • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

    SWEET! I loved the DEMO!!!

  • Grunwald

    I don’t even have a ps3 (yet) but YES!

  • Nyandroid

    I-I’m so glad, I’m going to cry!

  • DivinePhoenix69

    Ehh judging from the gameplay that i’ve seen i’m not really impressed, it basically looks like a reskinned Neptunia game. Not my cup of tea but i’m still glad that it’s getting localized so that people who are interested can enjoy it regardless.

    • It’s actually quite a fun game. It is very much a Neptunia reskin in some ways, but it also has a much more fun story. I laughed more at this game in the first few hours than I ever have playing Neptunia games. And while there’s a lot of comedic moments, the story manages to remain engaging and motivating.

      The world manipulation mechanics also make it fun.

      Only downside I saw in the game from an RPG perspective was the limited variety of zones. There’s a fair amount of replay/revisit that goes on, so the reduced variety in zones takes a bit of a toll as the game progresses.

      Overall, it is fun and a recommended RPG title.

  • iamakii


    Okay, I’ve calmed down.

  • NorthernPatches

    This year my PS3 will have nothing but JRPGs in it and I love it!

    • Ric Vazquez

      Some of my friends are probably tired of me saying this (western game fanatics meh) but 2014 is THE YEAR OF THE JRPG!

  • LDM

    This had made my day a lot better!

  • alixraen

    HHNNNGGGGG- *collapses into a heap on the ground*

  • Joshua Myers

    Hell yea XD been waiting for the news

  • Kornelious

    I knew it!, this is the most exciting news i’ve gotten lately! I LOVE U NISA! :D

  • Kornelious

    Now that i let out all of my excitment in that last post……Why no Hyperdimension rebirth NISA :(

  • Just Tim

    FFFnck yeah!

    Misspelling intentional.

  • And now all is right with the World =^_^=

    • Crimson_Cloud

      It’s worth living, just a little more XD

      • Amen XD

        • M’iau M’iaut

          But this game doesn’t have Ram or Rom. Fail!

          • No, but it does have Harler. And that’s a win in my book lol =^_^=

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Harler is a slutty MILF. There’s a reason some of the earliest stabs at her name came back as Harlot :P. Ram and Rom are innocence which must be protected and taught things.

          • I don’t remember it saying anywhere that Harler was a MILF lol. As for Rom and Ram they are innocent and cute, but this isn’t their game lol =P

          • M’iau M’iaut

            OK. She like Blanc is an oba-sama.

            Ram and Rom need their own game, btw.

          • DyLaN

            But it have Kaori Ishihara.

  • Atakashi

    And now, the wait for fall begins.

  • MrRobbyM

    WHAT. They told me it wouldn’t happen. Yet here we are.

  • 七死

    my mouth is foaming

  • HellMuT

    Looking forward to this one. Hopefully the gameplay from Neptunia is improved.

  • Slickyslacker

    I love you, NIS.

  • EtherealEarth

    NISA doesn’t disappoint me XD

  • ThunderGod_Cid

    Come on NISA, let me preorder it already!!!

    • Slickyslacker

      I don’t know about you, but I’m going to wait for a CE announcement.

      • ThunderGod_Cid

        It’s NISA, there’s ALWAYS a Collector’s Edition.

      • Lhomity

        I have the Japanese Limited Edition. It’s not bad. Hadn’t got around to playing the game yet, but with this news, I might end up waiting to play it in English anyway.

  • Callonia

    Finally! They was so quiet about it i was starting to get skeptical.

  • DanielGearSolid


  • kaizin

    nis based god answered my prayers i can finally sleep at night~

  • Daniel Kursave

    what were the reviews for this compared to say mugen souls and the first neptunia?

  • Kumiko Akimoto


  • Yan Zhao

    Yes yes yes yes yes yes YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DyLaN

    AW YEAH! My only nitpick is that I’m not too fond of the style of the english title logo but eh, finally!

  • Oltheros

    I see this as being a b-tier jrpg.

    Still, this announcement has made many happy so good on NISA. It’s not what I would’ve liked to see but meh

  • Ah yes, I’ve been waiting for this. Compile Heart might not have the greatest games, but damn if they’re not interesting all the same. Fairy Fencer F looks very neat, so I’m happy to see it’s getting a localization.

  • Guest

    localize god eater 2 next and i die peacefully

    • Renaldi Saputra

      NISA has nothing to do for localization of GE series

    • Kaetsu

      If God Eater 2 was localized it wouldn’t be NISA doing it. It would probably be Bamco or Sony.

  • Kai2591

    Long Live NISA.

    I’m happy that NISA is localizing this (even specifically mentioning that dual-audio is included), but I dunno, will I love this game? Should I buy it? I bought Neptunia years ago but it just didn’t go well with me….

  • artemisthemp

    Looking forward to see the NISA LE

    • Kornelious

      Me to, They always make great one’s :)

  • Wow, NISA is so awesome.

  • YES! :D

  • Loved the demo! Can’t wait to play the game and actually understand what I’m doing.

  • fayt255
