During Cloud Matsuri, Koei Tecmo released new gameplay for the Gust-developed RPG Fairy Tail, coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on July 30 in Europe and July 31 in North America.
The video gives players almost 25-minutes of gameplay showing the Fairy Tail crew arriving at Crocus to prepare for the Grandmaster Games. The video also features commentary by Koei Tecmo Europe’s Nathan Mills and Cloud Matsuri staff as they make their way through character interactions and battles. The gameplay reveals many characters who will be joining the crew later on as side-party members, but it’s said that this takes place early on in the campaign.
Fairy Tail will focus on Natsu and the Fairy Tail guild as they fight against a variety of enemies on the mission to become the best guild in Fiore. During battles, players can form parties of up to five mages, who can combine their power to unleash unprecedented magical attacks across a three-by-three battlefield grid.
Players will need to consider which magic is best suited for various situations strategically. Furthermore, players can utilize a special Magic Chain attack where each character launches magic followed by a finisher. The game features 16 playable characters who each have unique magical abilities.
