Koei Tecmo and GUST Studios reveal new details about the playable characters and magical combat of Fairy Tail, based on the popular anime and manga series.
Original manga author Hiro Mashima have helped GUST Studios recreate the magic of Fairy Tail, letting players join the adventures of Natsu and his team as they follow the series’ storyline, with the addition of exciting original episodes.
Arriving in spring 2020 for PS4, Switch and PC, fans can expect a rich and complex magical battle system that allows characters to combine their abilities to form new and powerful attacks.
Parties consist of up to five members, and attacks are displayed across a three-by-three battle grid. Each move spreads their damage across the tiles in a different formation, so carefully selecting attacks can lead to a swifter victory. By dealing enough damage players can also fill their “Fairy Gauge”, allowing the use of a “Magic Chain” ability, with every member of the party dealing combo attacks before unleashing a devastating finisher.
GUST Studios has also announced five new playable characters, who are not from the Fairy Tail guild but can join your party nonetheless. The “Sky God Slayer” Sherria Blendy can join your team, as well as the “Strongest Fencer” Kagura Mikazuchi, Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki the “Handsome” Blue Pegasus mage, the “White Dragon” Sting Eucliffe and the “Shadow Dragon” Rogue Cheney from Sabertooth.
Fairy Tail will be coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam in Spring next year. Preorders are now available, and you can head over to the game’s official website for more information.
