FAIRY TAIL’s UNISON RAID WIZARDRY TO SPELLBIND ANIME FANS AND GAMERS ALIKE
KOEI TECMO Europe and developer GUST Studios are excited to announce the first details to a host of enchanting new magical abilities featured in their otherworldly upcoming JRPG, FAIRY TAIL. The game is set to launch across Australia and New Zealand on the 30th July 2020 for the Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC via Steam®.
FAIRY TAIL’s extraordinary world of magic and dragons is captured in remarkable detail throughout this all-new gaming experience, with a phenomenal focus of delivering the type of magic and mystique fans of the worldwide sensation anime and manga series have been craving. In FAIRY TAIL, characters can now combine in a Unison Raid to unleash their magic spells at once to overpower enemies. This Unison Raid ability originally premiered in the FAIRY TAIL anime and manga, but in the game, all new magic and character team-ups will be featured, introducing exciting new powers from never before seen character combinations.
In addition, a series of Extreme Magic Spells will also be introduced, including Kanna’s Fairy Glitter – which can be activated when magic attacks are combined, Makarov’s “Giant” magic, and even a spell known as Exceed Special, which will help your party out in times of terrible trouble. Each magic spell carries unique elemental properties and affinities, with magic dealing more damage to specific opponents. Characters can then upgrade their magic spells by gaining experience points throughout their journey.
Also, by using magic attacks during battle, the party’s Awakening Gauge increases. When the gauge is fully filled, characters can be Awakened, enabling them to utilise even more powerful magical abilities – and with each character employing different Awakening Modes, players will be able to expand their strategies across a broad range of sorceries and enemies.
FAIRY TAIL is currently in development for the Nintendo Switch™, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC via Steam®, and is available now for pre-order through select retailers. Digital pre-orders are also live across Europe from today; purchasing any version of the game, physically or digitally, within a limited time from launch will also unlock the Early Purchase Bonus special Miss FAIRY TAIL costume for Erza.
Alternatively, a Digital Deluxe version of FAIRY TAIL has also been revealed, boasting special Grand Magic Games team costumes, a bonus Lacrima set, and a DDX Limited Ryza costume for Lucy!
For the die-hard FAIRY TAIL fan, there is a Guild Box edition of the game, available exclusively through the game’s official website. This version of the game is packed with must-have content for FAIRY TAIL fans, including a cloth poster with an original illustration by Hiro Mashima, a special ‘Game Release Edition’ of the Sorcerer Weekly Magazine, three 3D character cards, a special sticker set featuring the key members of the FAIRY TAIL guild, and a physical copy of the Nintendo Switch™ or PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system version of the game – or a digital code for Windows PC via Steam®.
