Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord, which is the sequel to Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force, which is an expansion of Fairy Fencer F from 2013 (phewww!), is due to launch in Japan on September 15th, 2022.

Details come courtesy of Gematsu, with a debut trailer unveiled along with some tasty tidbits on what the game will entail. Refrain Chord, along with its predecessor, involves warriors known as 'Fencers', who wield special weapons that contain fairies (hence the name!). The previous game's protagonist, Fang, returns for the sequel.

Here's some info on the release:

In Fairy Fencer F: Refrain Chord, highly strategic battles will unfold on fields with multiple levels of elevation. In addition to character direction, Fairize, and differences in elevation, the game’s key feature is utilizing “songs” to gain the upper hand in battle

The strengthened state known as Fairize returns. By building up the gauge and activating Fairize, your stats will gain a significant boost. There are also special skills that can only be used during the Fairize state, and since each character has their own attack range and effects, understanding what makes them unique is the key to victory. The Fairy’s song “Fairy Aria” is a special skill that can significantly strengthen all allies within a certain range. Since this only affects units within said range, it is important to position your Fairy and units near each other.

There's no word on a Western release as of yet, but with the first game being widely available, we'd say our chances are pretty strong with this one.
