All Articles: Fairy Fencer F
The PlayStation Store is now home to a massive list of new releases, including a few sought-after indies, an RPG re-release, and a pair of surprise remasters from Marvel…
Hyper Light Drifter (PS4) is an overhead action RPG from Heart Machine with a uniquely “glitched” retro style. Meanwhile, Tumblestone (PS4) is a multiplayer match-3 puzzler that also includes a massive Story Mode. And Mutant Mudds Super Challenge (PS4 + PS Vita Cross-Buy) is a challenging side-scroller from Renegade Kid.
Looking to new games we’ve seen before, Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force (PS4) is a remastered re-release of an RPG from the PS3 era. And previously available for the PS3, Activision re-released the superhero team-ups Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 for the PS4 this week as standalone downloads and a two-game bundle.
Finally this week, Telltale continues their Minecraft: Story Mode with Episode 7: Access Denied on the PS4 and PS3. This time, Jesse and friends challenge an AI that’s run amok.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a complete list of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
It’s the last week of July, and we’ve got a trio of new games to talk about…
Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force is a PS4 re-release of an RPG from Japanese developer Compile Heart. In addition to high definition graphics, Advent Dark Force adds new content to the game, more playable characters, and three new difficulty settings.
Another brand new re-release can be found on the Vita this week as Aksys Games plans to release Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate. The fifth game in the Shiren the Wanderer series, The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is a roguelike RPG that was originally released for the DS, only in Japan, in 2010.
Finally this week, N.E.R.O.: Nothing Ever Remains Obscure is a first-person puzzle game for the PS4 that takes players on a journey through a world of “incredible beauty.”
While just a handful of games will be added to retail shelves, a huge number of new games are expected to be made available to download through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Nintendo eShop this week.
It’s a quiet week for the PlayStation Store, but players are now able to download…
- Anomaly 2, a “tower offense” game for the PS4.
- KickBeat Special Edition, a rhythm game with a kung fu kick for the PS4.
- Fairy Fencer F, another wild RPG from NIS America for the PS3.
- Murasaki Baby, a visually unique puzzle platformer for the Vita.
More information on all of these titles (as well as a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
The spotlight is on oddities from Japan in this week’s new release report. Chief among them is Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call, a sequel to the popular Final Fantasy-based rhythm game for the 3DS. The first printing comes with a special soundtrack CD, so you’ve ever felt the urge to tap Final Fantasy themes with a stylus, now’s the time.
And speaking of sequels to handheld favorites, Majesco is back with a new Cooking Mama game for the 3DS, Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit!. Also available this week is Fairy Fencer F, a turn-based RPG for the PS3 from NIS America, and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), the latest game to star the whiskered ninja.
Finally this week, Majesco will release an “Ultimate Edition” of Air Conflicts: Vietnam for the PS4.
NIS America announced their 2014 release schedule last week, and there’s plenty for all you doods out there! President Souhei Niikawa came out with a Prinny hat on and thanked the press for their support. He went on to say that NIS is currently working on a game for the PlayStation 4, and that the full details would come out at the Tokyo Game Show later this year. After that, NIS showed trailers showcasing NISA’s upcoming projects…
- Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited, for the Vita, is a portable remake of the PS3 RPG.
- Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, also for the Vita, is a sequel to the recently released school-set RPG.
- Demon Gaze, a first-person RPG for the Vita.

- Mugen Souls Z is another RPG from Compile Heart for the PS3.
- The Witch and the Hundred Knight is an action RPG that will be available for the PS3 on March 25.
As always, it’s a huge list of quirky games, each with their own niche following.
