Developer Sting and publisher Compile Heart have released the first trailer for Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord, as well as new information regarding its story and gameplay. The game is set to release on September 15 in Japan for PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch.
The game follows a young man named Fang who can wield special fairy weapons called Furies. With his companions, he goes on a quest to find more Furies in order to resurrect the Goddess, who perished in a war with the Vile God.

Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord has a new tactical strategy RPG battle system now as opposed to the turn-based gameplay battles in previous entries like the original Fairy Fencer F and its enhanced Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force version. However, it doesn’t appear that Refrain Chord is a direct sequel to Fairy Fencer F, but rather a re-imagining of it.
Currently, there are no announcements on bringing the game to audiences outside of Japan, although it’s worth noting that the previous Fairy Fencer F games were localized.
