Idea Factory International and Compile Heart have confirmed a release date for Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord on Nintendo Switch.
Sting Entertainment is behind this all-new tactical RPG, which is “directly connected” to the story in Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force.
After Fang and the gang run into a mysterious woman called Glace, they discover she has the ability to brainwash other people with her song. Another woman named Fleur joins their party and also has the power of song. The two are Muses and can boost or change other peoples’ abilities with their singing. However, it is unclear what Glace’s motives could be.
The publisher has announced the game’s key features as below:
- 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: Refrain Chord will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 25th April 2023.
