Continuing their work on bringing Compile Heart developed JRPG’s to western markets, Idea Factory International have confirmed that Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force will be available on the PlayStation 4 starting in July.
To be a little more specific, those in North America will be available to purchase the game on July 26 2016, while those in PAL regions will have to wait a few more days until July 29 2016. Gamers in Australia and New Zealand won’t have to miss out either, with Mindscape handling distribution in their supported areas. Irrespective of region, physical and digital options will be available.
Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force is not a brand new game, but serves as an enhanced remake of Fairy Fencer F, which was initially released on the PlayStation 3 a few years ago. It features the same core story, but introduces new routes w/ additional endings, new playable characters and alterations to the gameplay – including the ability to add six characters to your battle party at once.
A synopsis of Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force’s storyline can be found below:
Long ago, a war was waged between the Vile God and the Goddess. Both forces were equally matched, and sealed each other into another world using a special weapon imbued with their powers. And so, time passed.
The weapons that the Goddess and the Vile God left were called “Furies,” and those who used them were called “Fencers.” Furies were rumored to grant any wish to those who collected them all, and because of those rumours, Fencers were constantly in battle against each other to collect the Furies. By chance, a young man named Fang came to save a girl named Tiara, who turned out to be a Fencer. From that day forward, Fang found himself an important part of the battle between the Vile God and the Goddess.
