Koei Tecmo recently premiered a video featuring almost 25 minutes of gameplay footage for their upcoming JRPG Fairy Tail.
Based off a manga series by Hiro Mashima, Fairy Tail began in 2006, and was published by Kodansha in Weekly Shonen Magazine until its conclusion in 2017. An anime series began in 2009, directed by Shinji Ishihara, and concluded in 2019.
Fairy Tail takes place in a fantasy world where guilds of wizards function as adventurer’s guilds. Fairy Tail is one such guild of wizards. Natsu Dragneel is a Dragon Slayer wizard, who was taught by the dragon Igneel. The wizards of Fairy Tail frequently find themselves at odds with guilds like Grimoire Heart, who have no qualms with aligning with dark powers.
