Princess Maker 3 Finally Heads West on PC – Available Now

Korean publisher CFK Co. has released Princess Maker 3: Fairy Tales Come True in English for the first time.

The Gainax-produced game’s English release comes by way of a PC release, on Steam. Featured above, you can view a trailer for the game. There are a few bundles available on Steam, with some including all three Princess Maker games, some including only two, and so on.

Originally released for the PlayStation back in 1997, the game was later ported to Windows, the Sega Saturn, and the Sega Dreamcast – only to never get an English release.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via its Steam page:


Princess Maker 3: Fairy Tales Come True was released on January 24th, 1997 for the PlayStation and eventually being released on Windows, Sega Saturn, and Dreamcast systems.

When it was first released, it did not include a numbering on the title, but it is widely known as Princess Maker 3. A young fairy girl who wishes to become a human princess gets a blessing from the Fairy Queen to receive a miracle to become a human.

You, as the player, must take care of a little girl and raise her as your own daughter. A fairy named Uzu appears as an advisor, and the new feature of selecting the player’s ‘Occupation’ is added into the game system. Schedule system allows players to select 15 days of scheduling. From each class, unique rivals and events make an appearance to add drama elements to the game. The interface has been made simpler than previous Princess Maker series, and album mode allows you to view images from vacation or ending within the game.

The voice actress for the daughter in-game is ‘Yukana Nogami’, a famous Japanese voice actress who took on many popular roles in anime such as Meiling Li from Cardcaptor Sakura, Kanna from Inuyasha, and many more.

Key Features

  • Simplified UI
  • Improved Class/Part Time Job animation
  • Animated pixel characters
  • Event screen with large character illustration

It’s worth pointing out that both the original Priness Maker Refine and Princess Maker 2 Refine have been available in English on Steam.

    Fantastic. I just completed the second game this month and was wondering about the other games in the series. However I do like the dithering of the original over refined’s graphics.

    The pre-order bonus is a box of tissues.

    Mmm, the 4th game is the one i have been interested about for years now

  • Tejan

    As a huge fan of the series, it’s always been a huge let down that we’ve never gotten any of the games past 2 officially, and I think only the MSX version 2 was the only fan-translation for the series.
    To see these games getting brought over is great. I’m hopeful that they’ll bring over 4 and 5, as 3 never had any sort of English translation, but I won’t be too let down if they don’t.

  • Jack
