Compile Heart

System: Switch (eShop)
Release date: January 17, 2019
Developer: Idea Factory / Compile Heart / Ghostlight
Publisher: Idea Factory

Fairy Fencer F felt very familiar to Idea Factory fans when it launched half a decade ago thanks to it using the same system and mechanics as the developer’s most successful property, the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. The game not only had the same arena turn-based RPG combat that made Hyperdimension Neptunia stick out from other JRPGs, but was progressed in a visual novel-like format with tons of dialogue and mostly static images and a much more tactical menu and layout that could change the pace of a battle in the blink of an eye. Still, Fairy Fencer F had its issues, with the occasional technical hiccups, some game breaking moments, prolonged tutorials, and a multitude of other minute things that eventually pile up and take a toll on the overall experience. Thankfully, an “enhanced” version released a few years later with Advent Dark Force, which has been the standard Fairy Fencer F game moving forward. It had tons of quality-of-life enhancements, as well as all DLC included from its original release and even included new story routes that were accessible through key decisions the player would make throughout the game. Advent Dark Force made Fairy Fencer F feel, for the most part, polished and complete. While Idea Factory’s PC ports haven’t had the best track record Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force was certainly playable on that platform and is a ton of fun. Sadly, that is more than one could say about the state of the Switch version.

Death end re;Quest listed for Switch

Death end re;Quest may have a chance of coming to Switch. That’s based on a new listing from Amazon Italy, which lists the game.

One aspect to consider is the release date the retailer has. Amazon Italy claims that Death end re;Quest is coming to Switch on February 22, which is the release date for the PlayStation 4 version. That would be oddly close since there’s yet to even be an official announcement. It’s unclear if the listing itself is a mistake, or if the date is just a placeholder.

The PS Vita RPG dungeon-crawler Moe Chronicle is in the works for Switch and is releasing soon, a listing on the Japanese eShop reveals. It’ll be out on January 31 as Moe Chronicle H. Full HD visuals and HD Rumble are supported as well as system enhancements such as “auto-pilot” and “status up items”.
