KOEI TECMO Announces Fairy Tail RPG Game for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and STEAM

In a rather surprising, and exceptionally exciting, announcement publisher KOEI TECMO have announced that an RPG game based upon the popular anime and manga series, Fairy Tail, is in development and will be released for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via Steam.

Details of this Fairy Tail game are relatively scarce, as further details will be announced next week during the Tokyo Game Show in Japan; but we do know that GUST Studio, the development studio responsible for handling Atelier games, will be developing the title in collaboration with the series author, Hiro Mashima, who will act as supervisor for the project. We also know, thanks to the teaser trailer released today, that this Fairy Tail game will be an RPG and feature the iconic Fairy Tail guild members, Natsu, Lucy, Erza, Gray and Wendy, with further characters expected to be revealed.

About: Demons, dark wizards, dragons, and cats. You’ll find it all as you start your journey in the land of Fiore and 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 TAIL world and its unusual inhabitants, including everything from magic to its iconic characters.

Although Fairy Tail debuted weekly as part of Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine in 2006, and then later received an anime adaptation in 2009, the franchise has never had a game released in the west; but games have been developed for the Nintendo DS and PSP in Japan. Surprisingly KOEI TECMO did a collaboration project for Dead or Alive 5 whereby selective characters wore outfits from notable Fairy Tail characters as part of a Fairy Tail Callobration DLC Pack. The news of a brand new RPG game, and from the developers of Atelier, really does spark interest and ignites the flame of Fairy Tail themed gaming content once again.

Either way; we are excited to learn more and additional details will be announced at the Tokyo Game Show next week – but for the time being the teaser/announcement trailer can be found below. Fairy Tail is in development for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC (via Steam) with a 2020 release currently planned.
