An S-Class Mage who uses "Crush" magic.

Publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Gust have released a new story trailer for its upcoming Fairy Tail game, as well as details on newly announced playable character Gildarts Clive, the Eclipse Arc, a Digital Deluxe Edition, and the early purchase bonus costume.

Get the details below.

Gildarts Clive

One of the most powerful additions to the Fairy Tail roster to date, 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 favor. Throughout the adventure, fans will be able to put together their own dream team of FAIRY TAIL members and their rivals, including everyone from Gildarts to Erza, Gray, and Gajeel. The more characters continue to fight together in the same party, their bonds will gradually strengthen, and as their friendship level increases, special conversations called “Bond Dialogue” will play out, including original dialogue written specifically for the Fairy Tail game.
