Sword & Fairy 6 is based on Chinese mythology and features a fusion of real-time and turn-based combat along with adaptive difficulty options. The game will be voiced in Mandarin Chinese with text in English, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. Including two side entries, Sword & Fairy 6 is the eighth entry in the series, which began in 1995, and was originally released in China and Taiwan for PC in 2015.
I had to double check because I’ve picked up (and not actually played) a couple of these Chinese RPGs, but this has been out on Steam for a while now. I keep meaning to play it because it looks like a forgotten second tier PS3 JRPG. It had some good buzz when it came out; I should really prioritize pushing it to the top of the backlog to try for sheer curiosity.
