FAIRY TAIL Story Trailer Released and Gildarts Confirmed as Playable Character

KOEI TECMO Europe have released a brand new ‘story’ trailer for GUST Studio’s videogame adaptation of Hiro Mashima’s popular shonen styled manga FAIRY TAIL; with it showcasing key story elements that fans will be able to experience from the game.

As previously announced FAIRY TAIL will recreate key events from within the FAIRY TAIL timeline; staring with the Tenrou Island arc and lasting all the way up to the end of the Tartaros arc. This latest trailer showcases moments from different arc within this timeframe as wlel as confirms the inclusion of the Eclipse Arc; a storyline segment which saw members of the FAIRY TAIL guild protect the kingdom from being overthrown by dragons. Not much has been shown of this arc, in game form at least, but screenshots and early trailers did show Lucy performing the magic spell seen within the arc itself; so it was expected to be included.

In addition to the trailer KOEI TECMO have also confirmed that Gildarts will be a playable character within the game. Gildarts is an S-Class Mage who uses “Crush” magic to reduce anything he touches to rubble. Gildarts joins the fight in support of Natsu and other party members, using his overwhelming strength to help swing the odds in the guild’s favour.

FAIRY TAIL is planned for release on the 25th June 2020 within Europe for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and STEAM.
