Koei Tecmo and Gust have announced that the video game adaptation of Fairy Tail, the popular shonen manga and anime series, will be hitting North American shores on March 20th, 2020. The game will be coming out on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, with the Windows PC version arriving a day early, on the 19th.
Fans who pre-order the game, or purchase within a certain timeframe after launch, will be able to get a special costume for Erza. The game's digital deluxe edition also adds a Grand Magic Games costume, a special Atelier Ryza outfit for Lucy, and a set of Lacrima items.
Check out a synopsis from Koei Tecmo below:
As characters fight together in the same party, their bonds gradually strengthen, and as their friendship level increases, special conversations will play out, including original dialogue written specifically for the FAIRY TAIL game. Stronger bonds also allow for enhanced attacks. For example: the powerful Magic Chain ability can last for a longer period of time after teammates establish a significant bond. In addition, playing through the game's original character relationship stories as well as the main the story will raise the party member's Character Rank, unlocking a bounty of new battle skills.
