Koei Tecmo have announced the release date for for the RPG Fairy Tale based on Hiro Mashima’s best-selling manga and anime series.
FAIRY TAIL will see Natsu and the team fight against a variety of foes in their quest to become the No. 1 guild in Fiore. Battle parties consist of up to five mages, allowing fan-favourite characters to combine together to perform impressive magical attacks displayed across a three-by-three battlefield grid. Each move deals a certain amount of damage across the tiles – choosing appropriate attacks can ensure a swift victory over troublesome enemies. By dealing damage, players will fill up the ‘Fairy Gauge’. This special ‘Magic Chain’ attack allows each party member to deal a combo of attacks before unleashing a powerful finisher – sometimes strong characters, like the beloved Guild Leader Makarov, may even jump in to deal devastating damage with their ‘Extreme Magic’.
When the ally party comes under heavy damage and are in a pinch, characters can awaken dormant abilities for a few turns, drastically increasing their powers. Some mages even have access to whole new attacks – Dragon Slayers can use ‘Dragon Force’ instead of their ‘Awakened’ abilities, while some mages can perform a ‘Mode Change’ offering a wealth of new battle options. Natsu’s renowned ‘Lightning Fire Dragon’s Iron Fist’ is an example of the enhanced abilities that can be performed. Some mages are even able to unite together to perform mighty combination attacks, known as a ‘Unison Raid’, triggering a special ‘Unison Raid’ cutscene right before unleashing the incredible attack against oncoming foes.
Fairy Tale launches on March 19th 2020 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC through Steam.
