Publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Gust have released new information and screenshots of the upcoming Fairy Tail RPG, introducing newly confirmed playable characters Kagura Mikazuchi, Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki, Sting Eucliffe, Rogue Cheney, and Sherria Blendy, as well as the game’s battle systems.
Get the details below.
Kagura Mikazuchi (voiced by Saori Hayami)
The most powerful mage of the women-only Mermaid Heel guild, Kagura controls gravity and is also a skilled swordsman. Kagura had been looking for her lost brother since she was a child. Upon discovering that he had been killed, she swore to avenge his death.
Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki (voiced by Shou Hayami)
A member of Blue Pegasus, a guild made up of handsome men and beautiful women, Ichiya stands out within the guild as a powerful and trusted mage. He is an expert in using magical perfumes.
Sting Eucliffe (voiced by Takahiro Sakurai)
Nicknamed White Dragon Sting, he belongs to Saber Tooth, the strongest guild in the Kingdom of Fiore. Together with Rogue, the two are known as the Twin Dragons. Although he has strong admiration for Natsu, Sting aspires to eventually defeat him.
Rogue Cheney (voiced by Kenichi Suzumura)
One of the Twin Dragons of the Saber Tooth guild, he is a Dragon Slayer who uses Shadow Dragon Slayer Magic. Nicknamed Shadow Dragon Rogue, he is usually accompanied by his partner Frosch. When Rogue was young, he admired Gajeel and had wanted to one day join Gajeel’s guild.
Sherria Blendy (voiced by Yuka Iguchi)
A mage of the Lamia Scale guild, she wields Sky God Slayer Magic that controls the wind, similar to Wendy. As a gifted student, she was able to graduate early from magic school, but in terms of athleticism, she can be clumsy at times.
Battle parties consist of up to five mages, allowing fan-favorite 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.
Magic Link and Extreme Magic
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.”
Awakening and Mode Change
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 Tail is due out for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC worldwide in 2020.
