Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force Announced for Nintendo Switch Release This Year

European publisher Ghostlight Games, in partnership with Idea Factory International, have announced that they will be releasing Compile Heart and Idea Factory’s JRPG game Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force onto the Nintendo Switch later this year as a digital download from the Nintendo eShop.

Originally released in 2013 onto the PlayStation 3 as Fairy Fencer F, and then later redeveloped and re-released onto the PlayStation 4 (and then Windows PC via Steam) in 2015 and 2016 respectively as Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force,this JPRG adventure puts players in control of Fang who has the unique ability to wield powerful weapons known as Furies as he reluctantly agrees to help stop an evil threat from overtaking the land.

This Nintendo Switch release of Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force will combine the base game with all previously released downloadable content into a single ‘definitive edition’ release; additionally the Nintendo Switch version will be tweaked with new gameplay additions such as up to 6 characters on screen (which is double than the previous variations) as well as Easy, Normal and Hard difficulty options.


Long ago, a dreadful war was fought between the Goddess and the Vile God. Both created a vast array of special weapons imbued with their godly energy, each containing the life force of a fairy. Armed with these weapons, the deities continued their conflict until they finally sealed each other away into the great unknown. A long time has passed since this ancient conflict, and the weapons created by the Goddess and the Vile God have since been scattered across the world. These weapons—now known as “Furies”—are highly sought after by warriors who call themselves “Fencers”. It is said that whoever collects a Fury will be granted one wish. When a young man named Fang decides to rashly pull a Fury from a stone, he inadvertently becomes a Fencer himself, forever altering the course of his destiny.

Continue your adventure through three new story paths: The Goddess story, the Vile God story, and the Evil Goddess story. Play as Fang and his gang as you face off against a new evil organization, meet new fairies and fencers, and collect the furies scattered across the world.

Key Features:

  • In the three stories to play, friends become foes, foes become friends, and, based on your choices, multiple endings can be unlocked!
  • Customize weapons by fusing them with fairies and change dungeons stats through World-Shaping. Even transform with the “Fairize” skill and become stronger in battle!
  • With up to six party members on the battlefield at a time, you can play as all your favorite Fencers!
  • From Amateur to Hell, choose the difficulty level that suits your style!

Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force for the Nintendo Switch is expected to be released digitally via the Nintendo Switch eShop later this year; with Ghostlight Games handling publishing duties in Europe and Idea Factory International handling the North American release. In the meantime Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force is available for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC worldwide.
