KOEI TECMO America and developer GUST Studios revealed new guest characters featured in their upcoming magical JRPG, FAIRY TAIL. New guild hall features were also detailed to give fans a taste of the different gameplay highlights outside of battle they can expect when the game launches across North America on June 26, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, and on June 25, 2020 for Windows PC via Steam.
During FAIRY TAIL’s gripping narrative, players will team-up with a range of guest characters from other guilds across Magnolia to take on common enemies. These fan-favorite characters are ready to team-up and support your party in battle, and include: the ‘Arc of Time User,’ Ultear Milkovich, from the Crime Sorcière guild; the ‘Ice-Make Wizard,’ Lyon Vastia, from the Lamia Scale guild; the ‘Burning Hair Wizard,’ Flare Corona, from the Raven Tail guild; and Minerva Orland, ‘Sabertooth Guild’s Finest Lady.’ And while guest characters are not playable, they will instead join your party and automatically perform a range of powerful magic abilities – including those featured in the anime and manga.
Throughout the FAIRY TAIL adventure, from Tenrou Island to the Grand Magic Games and beyond, the guild’s famed hall becomes a key meeting point for party members to prepare for upcoming quests. Inside the guild, items are available for sale and trade – including consumable items, Lacrima, and a variety of materials at the item shop. There’s even a selection of drinks at the bar that provide different status effects to party members. By saving up gold and purchasing upgrades for the guild, an increased inventory of items and drinks are available for purchase, and the appearance of the guild itself becomes increasingly more extravagant.
Within the guild hall, players are also able to talk to their comrades and challenge them to thrilling one-on-one duels, with the winner receiving rewards based upon the character they just defeated. Players are also able to find members of other guilds across Magnolia and challenge them to duels, leading to all-new exciting battles that have never appeared in the manga or anime.
