Amano, Uematsu and Compile Heart developing Fairy Fencer F

Final Fantasy's Yoshitaka Amano and Nobuo Uematsu are working with Compile Heart on a new PlayStation 3 exclusive RPG, it's been revealed.

Previously teased and reported on a few weeks ago as the "Galapagos RPG," Fairy Fencer F has been revealed in this week's Famitsu.

The game features Yoshitaka Amano, the man responsible for the artwork of Final Fantasy I-VI and the series' distinctive logos, as a concept artist. He's reunited with Nobuo Uematsu, who will score the game with The Earthbound Papas, his pretty awesome band. The team behind the Hyperdimension Neptunia games will handle the actual development duties.

Siliconera translates that Fairy Fencer F tells the story of a goddesses, gods and twisted royalty. Standard Japanese RPG Stuff. The battle system is said to be an evolution of the one from Neptunia, featuring mid-air combos and team attacks.

Nothing has been mentioned regarding a potential Western release, but the Neptunia titles have been bought over by Nippon Ichi in the past. The game will be out in Japan later this year.
