Forums - Gaming Discussion - First ever English/Western release for Chinese Paladin: Sword and Fairy 6 to come to Steam on November 15th

Tagged games:

 

The Legend of Sword and Fairy series is a longstanding Taiwan-developed RPG series that basically has the status of the Final Fantasy series in the West, having 8 games out so far, as well as an MMORPG, multiple spinoff games, and four separate live-action series.
The latest game in the series, Chinese Paladin: Sword and Fairy 6, will be released on Steam with Chinese audio and English subtitles on November 15, marking the first time that the RPG series has ever been released officially in English. 



Like the Japanese - Final Fantasy series, 
entries in The Legend of Sword and Fairy series are not related to each other outside of a few reoccurring characters.


Here's some gameplay footage.

The game is reportedly coming to PS4/XBO but it seems like in Asian territory only for now.

What's the gameplay like? Is it turn-based (good) or not turn-based (bad)?

Oh and I can't help but think that's a terrible name. I assume it must sound better in Chinese than it does in English



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Both turn based and non-turn based are good yo.

 

 

Btw this game is turn based.

 

Also if I remember right, there's two other games already on steam from the series but not in English.

I see. I don't speak the Chinese though

Wonder if the English release will be any good (and how much it will be).

Edit: You say it's coming to PS4 too? Even better!

Its Chinese language for voices for both PC and PS4.

 

PC version is so far the only one that is coming to the west at this time with english subtitles.

 

PS4 version is Chinese language only.

Chinese voices are fine, I'd prefer it that way than the terrible voice acting Asian RPGs usually get (except probably even worse because Japanese companies have more money to spend on localisation than Taiwanese ones).

Disappointing that the PS4 version won't get English subtitles though.

Awesome to see more high quality chinese centric games developed!

There's lot's of potential to develop high production value gaming in predominately chinese nations such as Singapore, Taiwan and mainland China ...

It's just too bad that their not good in anything yet. Koreans and americans have them beat in MMOs, MOBAs, FPSs, and single player games especially ...

I'm interested to see what Skull & Bones brings which is largely developed from Ubisoft Singapore ...
