Fairy Fencer F Set For September 23, Limited Edition Has A Beanie

By Spencer . June 27, 2014 . 12:04am


NIS America will release Fairy Fencer F, a Compile Heart RPG developed by the Neptunia team with concept art from Yoshitaka Amano, on September 23. The game will sell for $49.99, but for $74.99 you can get a limited edition package.


The Fairy Fencer F limited edition includes a hardcover art book, a soundtrack CD with music composed by Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu, a +1 Beanie of Dedication that looks like Pipin (one of the party members), and a collector’s box.




Fairy Fencer F is Compile Heart’s take on developing a role playing game that can relate to a broader audience. You play as Fang, a listless hero that is awkwardly blunt, who wields a Fury, a weapon leftover when two gods were warring over the world. He’s joined by other Fencers, heroine Tiara and Pipin, an odd green fellow with a sword stuck in his head.

  • Brandonmkii

    Welp, I do look good in beanies.

  • Albel

    Damn…what an ugly beanie…

    • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

      What a fitting description of the game as well.

    • Cazar

      Incoming fashion police.

      It’s not supposed to be a fashion statement; it’s just a novelty item.

      • I think they should have aimed in a “more wearable in public” beanie than this “I’m an eccentric otaku” approach.

  • DyLaN

    Gotta say, I rather like what NISA did to the regular cover of localized FFF. They took the best part of both LE/normal cover and put them together.

  • Go2hell66

    Would not wear that beanie in public even if you payed me

    • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

      It sure beats the hell out of wearing an Adventure Time beanie…..

  • Kai2591

    +1 Beanie of Dedication


  • Liamv2

    Nooo ar no surge comes in september as well. Goddamn it I want to actually wanted do my collage work japan.

    • Revyatheworldeater .

      Hmm… this news makes me hope that Ar nosurge is coming in October/November in the US

  • landlock

    Hopefully this’ll be added to NISA Europe store when it opens on July 1st.

    • Demeanor

      Yeah, my thoughts exactly, not having to pay for absurd shipping costs and cutthroat import taxes would sway me the right way, now that my place is already crammed enough with LEs :D

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    How’s the game itself? The artwork looks great and that beanie is somewhat appealing. Somewhat.

    • It’s fun. It’s quite a bit like Neptunia in terms of combat and world navigation, but story wise they tried to serious up a bit. But just a bit. FFF does have some down moments story-wise, but at heart, it is just a fun RPG.

      Overall a well recommended to JRPG fans. It’s not the kind of game that ‘ll gush about to friends and proclaim as the next coming of RPGs, but at the same time it’s just a very nice, core play experience, with good amounts of story and humor to top it off.

      • Hunnybear

        sounds like how you would describe a Tales game … m’right?

  • Tiredman

    Will be getting this game, but will admit, this may be the first console NISA game release that I don’t get the CE or LE version of. That beanie does nothing for me, and to be honest, the art books are getting old. There is no substance to most of them, just a few pages, enough that they can call it a mini art book, and call it a day.

    Will make it easier for me at least. I don’t like paying full price up front for games, I prefer to preorder through Gamestop and pay it off over time. Feels a lot better spending $10 a week on games rather than $40+ at once.

    • bigstew

      exactly, I love their preorder/layaway idea, paying 5 or 10 here and there is great, wish you could do that on amazon, but I am skipping this le as well, getting tired of artbooks and soundtracks, I don’t even listen to them but this is nis where talking about. wish for once we could get japans le’s where their is actual swag like console accessories, cell phone charms, etc.

      • disgaea36

        it’s not even that its practically a marketing scheme. Remember when they used to come with the games and look beautiful like ar tonelico hardcover or even the eternal poison and persona 3 books those were great and sometimes all it took was pre ordering. now u gotta for over like 40 bucks extra for some 3rd rate book that competes with google images smh.

        • Tiredman

          That is my other problem with the LE’s now. They have been cutting back while upping prices. Its a shame really.

      • Tiredman

        Yeah, honestly, out of the last 6 or so LE’s I have bought from them, the highlight was Neptunia V with the lunchbox. I did enjoy the Metallia nendoroid though.

    • Revyatheworldeater .

      I think Udon Entertainment might be releasing a HDN art book that features Tsunako’s art on the near future… and those are real art books.

      • Tiredman

        I will keep an eye out for it. My greatest art book so far is the hyrule zelda artbook. Managed to catch it on an insane sale for $20 on Amazon a year or so ago, and the quality was insanely nice.

  • Alestaos

    Any ideas what date this will come out in EU been looking forward to this semi-Tales of like game ^^ And that LE looks awesome!

    • artemisthemp

      Shopto.net say September 4, 2014 and it could be true as NISA have a habit of releasing first in EU.
      However we will first know for on July 1, where NISA opens their EU online store.

      • LightOtaku

        Wow I did not know they were opening a store for EU, kudos to them for supporting us.

        • artemisthemp

          Disagea 4, Persona Q, Fairy Fencer F and Danganronpa 2 LE will be available for pre order on Day 1

          • LightOtaku

            Yeah i’ll definitely be pre-ordering Fairy Fencer F Day 1.

          • artemisthemp

            Fairy Fencer F, Persona Q and Dangenronpa 2 pre order on Day 1.

            I will keep my Disgaea 4 in US since, I have a US version of Disgaea 3

      • Alestaos

      • Yes I know but now I have a ps4 I don’t want to pay full wack for last gen games

        • Steven Higgins

          OH, you were talking about the PRICE dropping. I thought you meant “Drops” as in “Releases” like they say about CDs/albums. Heh heh, oops.

          • Sorry should have explained myself better =P

          • Steven Higgins

            It’s fine.

  • Not interested in the beanie, but I love everything else that comes with it, and love how the collector’s box looks. Limited Edition sold! =^_^=

  • Kornelious

    YES! Been waiting for this one! :D

    Looks really awesome, I’m glad that they kept the same artwork that was on the Japanese Limited Edition. Though I do wish that there was a poster or something…..Though it still is AWESOME!

    AI just hope that the box has all four walls instead of being open…..but STILL AWESOME! Insta-Pre-Order for me! :D

  • Steven Higgins

    Well, there’s my September game.

  • DyLaN

    I just recall tht the JP LE had a bonus novel in it and we are not getting it :/

  • Axle

    Played the demo and liked it, might just pick this up! Despite having foolishly read one hell of a spoiler comment somewhere… One sentence. . That’s all it took

    • What was it? im curious as to what it could have been that left such an impact XD (Tell me!)

      • God

        No. He must not, and if he does, he shall write it backwards, every single word, and it must be read from right to left.

        • -3- You suck Kami-sama… but i still want to know anyway. what kind of sentence can completely ruin the game? Boku wa Kiniarimasu! XD

          • God

            What did you say about a tree?

          • Guest

            I …. I can’t. I can’t do it.

          • Axle

            I … I can’t. I can’t do it. I mustn’t pass the misfortune on to another.

  • Guest

    If only I loked god wearing beanies…

    • God

      Who hast summoned me… Oh? I guess poor grammar strikes again.

  • I will wear my beenie with pride! Though I do kind of wish it came in pink (>_< )

  • DingLayGorFe

    I wish it would come to Vita

  • Callonia

    Fairy Fencer F and Ar no Surge for september? My September is going to be busy and fun! XD

    • And Xillia 2 coming in August before either of them. It’s gonna be a great Fall!

  • So wait…

    “You play as Fang… who wields a Fury… He’s joined by other Fencers…”

    Shouldn’t it be called FURY Fencer F then?

  • Demeanor

    Ok, for all you EU people: I just received a mail from NISA telling me that since starting July 1st the eu online store will be up and running, they’re stopping with overseas shipments from the US store; a list of eu or closer-to-eu countries will have to use the new eu store instead, and it will offer everything the us does.
    Let’s just hope we won’t get ripped off with prices :P
    Here’s the official link: http://store.nisamerica.com/EU-Store

    • darke

      You might as well give in and accept the inevitable 1 USD == 1 euro conversion. :P

  • Captain Levi

    Sorry for the question but I wish to be sure: Is this game something serious or it’s just some “ignorant fanservice”? Thanks in advance.
