Jellal, Mirajane and Laxus Confirmed as Playable Characters in FAIRY TAIL Game

KOEI TECMO continues to tease FAIRY TAIL fans with its drip-feeding of information as following on from the announcement of a release date, along with a selection of playable characters from the Grand Magic Games Arc, the publisher have recently confirmed another selection of playable characters.

As explained by KOEI TECMO FAIRY TAIL will allow players to build a five-character dream team from a roster of over 15 playable characters as they adventure across the Kingdom of Fiore in their quest to raise FAIRY TAIL to the top guild in the region. Previously announced characters including the main Fairy Tail team, consisting of Natsu, Lucy, Grey, Erza and Wendy, as well as Gajeel, Juvia, Sherria, Kagura, Ichiya, Sting, and Rogue.  New characters announced this week include the fan-favorite user of “Heavenly Body Magic,” Jellal Fernandes from Crime Sorcière; the “Drawing Card” of FAIRY TAIL, Mirajane Strauss; and the “Thunder Dragon Slayer” and grandchild of Makarov, Laxus Dreyar.

As characters fight together in the same party, their bonds gradually strengthen, and as their friendship level increases, special conversations will play out, including original dialogue written specifically for the FAIRY TAIL game. Stronger bonds also allow for enhanced attacks. For example: the powerful Magic Chain ability can last for a longer period of time after teammates establish a significant bond. In addition, playing through the game’s original character relationship stories as well as the main the story will raise the party member’s Character Rank, unlocking a bounty of new battle skills.
