Experience all your favorite parts of Fairy Tail up close and personal when the beloved series hits consoles next year with a new RPG by GUST Studios.
Players can take part in the Tenrou Island arc, the Grand Magic Games arc, and the Tartaros arc, as well as other episodes based on Hiro Mashima’s best-selling manga and anime series. Picking up roughly halfway through the anime series, the Fairy Tail RPG revolves around the guild’s near demise after the mysterious absence of Natsu’s party. The guild’s prestige has plummeted in the years since they’ve been gone and is drowning in debt. Thankfully, Natsu and his crew of mages are back and ready to return Fairy Tail to its glory days by joining the Grand Magic Games and competing for top guild.
Action includes Natsu’s party facing Hades in an action-packed showdown, Erza clashing swords with Kagura of Mermaid Heel, and battles against the dark guild Tartaros. In addition, original episodes will also be playable to help characters bond while unlocking unique scenes in the game.
Players can also choose from two new characters: “The Iron Dragon Slayer” Gajeel Redfox, and “The User of Water” Juvia Lockser join Natsu and crew on their heroic journey.
Throughout the game, mages accept jobs from the request board inside Fairy Tail headquarters. Battles often accompany these jobs, so characters must coordinate their attacks with other party members. Once completing the task, players report back to the guild to receive rewards, including money, items, and guild fame. Guild rank will vary in line with fame, rising from D to S – the higher the rank, the more challenging the mission, but with that comes even bigger rewards. Rise the ranks to take on the most challenging missions in the courageous quest to become the greatest guild in Fiore.
Fairy Tail RPG will launch in 2020 on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam.
