EastAsiaSoft announced their plans to publish the Softstar Entertainment developed fantasy RPG Sword & Fairy 6 on PlayStation 4 digitally in North America on April 2.
Evidentally, Sword & Fairy 6 is one of the most popular RPGs in China. The series first began in 1995 on the MS-DOS and has since received entries up until Sword & Fairy 6 released in 2015. Currently, Sword & fairy 7 is in development.
Sword & Fairy 6 combines free exploration and seamless transitions into battle scenes from the world or dungeon map. Players can discover a battle system that has fused together real-time and turn-based combat, with each of the unique abilities of the characters.
Additionally, EastAsiaSoft plans to release a physical version of the game on Playasia on February 21, the limited edition comes with:
- A physical copy of the game (region free)
- A full-color printed manual
- An original soundtrack CD
- An individually numbered collector’s certificate
- A collector’s box
The game originally launched under the name Chinese Paladin: Sword and Fairy 6 on Steam and holds a “Mixed” review score from players. However, it seems most players enjoyed that the series is finally receiving a western translation.
Here’s a bit of the story from the developer:
Since the birth of the ancient god Shen Nong, the nine springs of Jiuquan have anchored the Heavens and Earth. Each of the Jiuquan possess supernatural powers, and each are a fountain of energy and life for the universe. In the War of the Three Tribes, the Beasts were defeated by the coalition of Humans and Gods. The tribe of the Beasts retreated to the Demon World and since then Gods, Demons and Men have lived in isolation. After the war, Shen Nong and the Jiuquan disappeared from the world, and as time flowed on… the legend of the Jiuquan was lost.
