The game is based on the fantasy adventure comic about Natsu, a Dragon Slayer of the rowdy Fairy Tail magician guild, and his unique group of friends battling against unusual and memorable enemies.
Developed by GUST Studios, Fairy Tail is a JRPG in which players are able to team-up with a range of guest characters from other guilds across Magnolia to take on common enemies. Confirmed characters are: the ‘Arc of Time User’ Ultear Milkovich, from the Crime Sorcière guild; ‘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.’
Throughout the Fairy Tail adventure, from Tenrou Island to the Grand Magic Games and beyond, the guild’s famed hall becomes a key 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 to purchase, and the appearance of the guild itself becomes increasingly more extravagant.
