The Neptunia team is hard at work on a big project called Fairy Fencer F. The game is built using Neptunia’s battle system as a foundation and Tsunako, the character artist from the Neptunia series, created characters for Fairy Fencer F. That’s probably why it feels familiar.
You won’t find any console mascots in Fairy Fencer F, though. Compile Heart designed Fairy Fencer F as a more traditional RPG. Screenshots of the game show Tiara, the girl with blue hair, in battle with Fang. The monsters look more ferocious than the horsebird in Neptunia. The four commands on the menu are: menu (triangle), wait (square), attack (circle), and defend (X).
Yoshitaka Amano created concept art for Fairy Fencer F. The game is slated for release on PlayStation 3 this year in Japan.
