At EGX 2019, KOEI Tecmo and GUST Studios showcased their upcoming magical JRPG, FAIRY TAIL. And thankfully, Gematsu has shared a video, showing 19 minutes of gameplay footage from that demo.
FAIRY TAIL , based on Hiro Mashima’s best-selling manga and anime series of the same name, follows the spell-binding plot from “The Grand Magic Games” story arc – enabling gamers to re-live, or experience for the first time, the exciting episodes of this fan-favorite storyline.
Players will be able to experience stories previously told in the manga and anime. Moreover, they will even be able to enjoy never before seen story and quest elements.
FAIRY TAIL promises to feature fiery and intense magical battles; with a diverse range of magic available for the extraordinary characters to wield. Renowned moves from the series light up the screen, with some characters such as Natsu being able to take advantage of mode changes – like utilizing the eye-popping Lightning Fire Dragon Mode. In addition, some guild members will be available to support in battle; including the Fairy Tail Guild Master, Makarov Dreyar, who can be called in to provide powerful aid on the battlefield.
The game currently targets a 2020 release.
