IdeaFactory just announced that the Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord will be heading west in 2023. This new entry in the Fairy Fencer F saga changes pace a bit with a new battle system, brand new story and characters.
Fang and the others run into a mysterious woman named Glace, who has the ability to brainwash other people with her song. Another woman named Fleur joins their party, who also has the power of song. The two are known as Muses, and are able to boost or change other peoples’ abilities with the power of singing. What could Glace’s motives be?
FFF Tactics?! – Strategize to capitalize with an all-new Tactical RPG battle system! Use terrain, and objects such as rocks, boxes, and grass to your advantage. Strategic positioning on the battlefield can raise your evasiveness, or lower your movement speed, among other effects. Plus, Avalanche Attack and Fairize battle mechanics return!
Fairies, Fencers, Furies…and Muses? – With the introduction of the two Muses, all-new battle mechanics are at your command. Use the power of their song to buff allies or combine both area of effect boosts for an even more DRAMATIC buff! But beware, enemies within the area can also benefit.
Hidden Fairies, Locations and Treasure! – Break new ground with this fresh take on “World Shaping.” With “Location Shaping,” use your collected Furies by stabbing them in various locations of the world map. Doing so can unlock items, hidden locations, or even Fairies. Activate a chain to stab more locations without using up your limited Locate Energy!
All-New Story With Multiple Routes! – Follow Fang and his friends through multiple routes in this all-new story, as they continue their search for Furies in order to resurrect the Goddess. Will you find harmony or dissonance when fate lies in your hands?
Fairy Fencer F is still my favorite series from IdeaFactory and easily their best game to date. This new spin will definitely be an interesting take on a cult classic. Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord will be available on Playstation 4|5, Nintendo Switch and Steam next Spring.
