Adventure RPG ‘Fairy Tail’ Boosts Playable Characters From 12 to 16 With New Story Trailer

Koei Tecmo announced new characters for the Gust-developed RPG Fairy Tail, coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on June 26 and June 25 for PC.

The publisher introduces Gildart, the strongest man in the Fairy Tail guild. Gildarts is an S-Class Mage who uses Crush magic to take out his enemies. With the addition of Gildart also comes an announcement that the roster of playable characters has been increased from 12 to 16 following the game’s delay.

During the game, players will also be able to play through the Eclipse arc, which revolves around “Project Eclipse.” 400 years ago dragons reigned, and now a gate has opened to allow them into the present timeline.

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 unique magical attacks across a three-by-three battlefield grid.

Players will need to strategically consider which magic is best suited for various situations. Furthermore, players can utilize a special Magic Chain attack where each character launches magic followed by a finisher. The game features 12 playable characters who each have unique magical abilities.
