From COMPILE HEART (Hyperdimension Neptunia), NIS America announced tonight that they acquired Fairy Fencer F for digital and physical release on the PS3.
A turn-based RPG, Fairy Fencer F features concept art from Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy), character art from Tsunako (Hyperdimension Neptunia), and music from Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy). A short description was provided by NIS America:
Long ago, a dreadful war was fought between the Goddess and the vile God. Because they were equally matched, they both created a vast number of special weapons imbued with their godly energy, each containing the life force of a fairy. Armed with these weapons, the deities continued their conflict until they finally sealed each other away into the great unknown. A long time has passed since this ancient conflict, and the weapons created by the Goddess and teh Vile God have since been scattered across the world. These weapons-now known as “Furies”-are highly sought after by warriors who call themselves “Fencers”. It is said that whoever collects a Fury will be granted one wish. When a young man named Fang decides to rashly pull a Fury from a stone, he inadvertently becomes a Fencer himself, forever altering the course of his destiny.
Look for Fairy Fencer F sometimes this year for PS3 systems in North America and Europe.
