Koei Tecmo announced this morning that in partnership with GUST Studios, Hiro Masima’s best-selling manga will be coming to life: FAIRY TAIL. This new Fairy Tale game will come to major consoles in the West, to let newcomers to the series and long-time fans experience this series together. More information will be available during Tokyo Game Show 2019 next week, but today we have a trailer for this new title.
Demons, dark wizards, dragons, and cats – players will find it all as they start your journey in the land of Fiore. In FAIRY TAIL, wizards play through the adventures of Natsu Dragneel and Lucy Heartfilia, as well as other eccentric members of the FAIRY TAIL mage guild, on a fun-filled and thrilling quest. GUST Studios is creating the game under the supervision of author Hiro Mashima, promising a faithful recreation for the FAIRY TAILworld and its unusual inhabitants; including everything from magic to its iconic characters
Based on Hiro Mashima’s best-stelling manga, the game will follow the plot from “The Grand Magic Games” story arc. This will let players experience for the first time (or re-live, if they are fans of the anime/manga), a fan-favorite storyline. Stories previously told in the anime and manga will be able to be experienced, alongside never-before-seen story and quest elements.
Throughout their journey, players will be able to form a party from a selection of over ten iconic characters, including: the fire dragon slayer, Natsu Dragneel; the celestial mage, Lucy Heartfilia; the ice-make mage, Gray Fullbuster; the fairy queen ‘Titania’, Erza Scarlet; and the young sky dragon slayer, Wendy Marvell.
In FAIRY TAIL, completing battles and quests will not only level up party members, it will lead to character bonding scenarios, provide options to upgrade the guild, and eventually raise the ‘Guild Rank’ – enabling players to take on more challenging missions in their quest to become the greatest guild in Fiore.
