Koei Tecmo released new information for the Gust developed action RPG Fairy Tail, coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam in 2020.
Fairy Tail will be set during the Tenrou Islan arc, the Grand Magic Games arc, and the Tartaror arc as well as other episodes from the original canon. The game will begin about halfway through the anime series as Natsu returns the Fairy Tail guild to bring it back to its former glory. Through the game, players will face off against Hades, Kagura, and many others as they go through each arc.
In addition, players can experience original episodes between the characters to build their bonds and relationships with the cast. Two new characters have also been revealed, Gajeel Redfox, and Juvia Lockser, who will join the previously announced cast Natsu Dragneel, Lucy Heartfilia, Gray Fullbuster, Erza Scarlet, and Wendy Marvell as playable characters.
During the game, players will accept a job from the request board and head out to complete various tasks. During battles, characters must coordinate attacks with the other party member to take down their targets. Once a job is completed the guild gets the rewards and hopefully builds their Guild rank up. The battle system in Fairy Tail features magical battles where players will be able to access the magic abilities of the characters to take down enemies. Completing battles and quests will not only level up the party members, but it will also lead the characters to unique bonding scenarios where hopefully we can ship a few characters that just didn’t get a chance. Also, players will be able to upgrade the guild and unlock new challenge missions.
