While an exact release date wasn’t provided by NIS America, it is slated for release in 2014.

The Compile Heart turn-based RPG features art and music from Final Fantasy alums Yoshitaka Amano, Tsunako and Nobuo

Here’s the synopsis straight from NIS:

“Long ago, a dreadful war was fought between the Goddess and the Vile God. Because they were equally matched, they both created a vast number 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.”

Fairy Fencer F is just the latest western release to be announced by NIS, with Battle Princess of Arcadias, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited all headed west this year.
