Fairune announcement

Fortunately for fans of the genre, reasonable and solid RPGs are a fairly common find on the 3DS eShop. With the bar set high by excellent titles such as Bravely Default, Rune Factory 4 and Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan, it can be rather difficult to make an RPG that really stands out from the pack. Nevertheless, that's precisely what Flyhigh Works is setting out to do with its upcoming release.

Via Twitter a while ago (we missed it at the time) Fairune II was announced to be on the way to the 3DS eShop; as publisher CIRCLE Entertainment was making the announcement a localisation for the West seems like a given. The sequel to last year's Fairune, this looks set to deliver more colourful 16-bit RPG goodness. We awarded the original Fairune a 7/10 in our review; while it may not be the perfect game, it's a reasonable effort at such a budget price.

A few days after that announcement some background music was uploaded to YouTube, which certainly establishes the game's vibe.
