Publisher Idea Factory International has highlighted the various new characters arriving in the upcoming Compile Heart and Sting-developed tactical JRPG, Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord.
You can view these new characters’ renders and profiles below:
A Muse that the group meets while pursuing Dorfa. She’s said to be able to imbue her songs with power and grant special skills to herself and those around her, such as the ability to heal wounds or even brainwash others. She can be a bit strange at times, and her understanding of the world is very limited. She loves Al as though he were her father.
Fleur’s partner. Being somewhat of a scientist himself, he and Harley get along very well. He is knowledgeable, caring, and easygoing, but he tends to lose himself in his work when he gets interested in something and has a bad habit of running off. He wears a singular goggle on his right eye due to his very poor vision.
A mysterious “Muse” who appeared before Fang and the others. Her songs are said to have the power to brainwash people and alter their memories. She is working with Dorfa to collect Furies for the one she calls Master.
High-spirited and attracted to a pretty face regardless of gender. They like beautiful things and love to hear the latest juicy gossip. Despite their gaudy appearance, they love to cook healthy, modestly flavored Japanese food. A.J. and Bahus, who is prone to cooking more fatty Western foods, are bitter enemies.
Ibfreet & Sui
A young man who was educated at the Dorfa Fencer Training Institute. Though his ability to become a Fencer wasn’t recognized until later, Dorfa kept him around due to his incredible skills as an assassin. Quick and flexible, he’s extremely dangerous with concealed weapons. He seems to have some kind of history with Zagi.
Sui is Ibfreet’s Fairy partner. Until Ibfreet freed it, it drove all who touched its Fury mad. It has the appearance of a pure white snake, and it eats all of its food in one single swallow. When it eats, it eats a lot, which really drives up the food costs.
Rinne & Lenne
Rinne is the result of Dorfa’s research to create the world’s first Arti-Fencer. Equipped on his arm is the very first False Fury, which has the same power as a naturally occurring one. Despite his young appearance, he has surprisingly cold eyes. The Fairy he travels with looks just like him, and he calls him “brother”…
Lenne is an Arti-Fairy who is fused with Rinne through the False Fury equipped to him. He gives Rinne the power to be an Arti-Fencer. Rinne calls him “his real blood-related brother,” but…
The profiles of the returning characters can be viewed via the official website. Additionally, pre-orders for the title’s standard edition are now available via several retailers for $49.99.
Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord’s official website houses links to each participating retailer.
Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord follows Fang and his group as they run into a woman named Glace, who has the ability to brainwash people with her siren song. A woman named Fleur joins the party who shares this ability, and it’s learned they are known as Muses, which allow them to change or boost other peoples’ abilities with their singing.
Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord will launch PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in Spring 2023 in North America and Europe.
