What’s also pretty great is the more you use these characters in your party the more they will bond. This will intern unlock new story elements giving you even greater insight into the world of Fairy Tail.
The list of characters doesn’t stop with just the playable ones however, as there is a whole host of support characters which you can summon for some epic attacks!
A whole slew of customisable options
If you’re into customising, then Fairy Tail has you covered! Want to customise your character’s outfit? No problem! Do you want to change up their moves to fit your play style? Then go ahead! The list of options is huge! The customisation doesn’t stop at your party, as you’re able to customise the guild hall as well!
The Guild Hall
Speaking of the Guild Hall, it is up to you to build up its reputation! The Fairy Tail game picks up at the point where the anime has the guild try to build up its back up! (if you know about the Tenrou Island and the Dark Guild then you’ll know why). It’s up to you to build up and evolve your Guild Hall from a tiny shack to the architectural magnificence it had back in the old days of Fairy Tail.
What’s more, as you level up your guild hall more options will be available to you to level up your party, stock up on supplies, and buy some epic gear.
Classic Turn-based JRPG
Turn-based RPGs are becoming few and far between these days. Luckily Fairy Tail is kicking it old school and bringing back a turn-based RPG system that will make any gamer out there jump for joy.
Some say that a Fairy Tail game would be better as a real-time action RPG. However, the turn-based system works so well here! The UI is very intuitive and the whole battle gameplay has been compared to some great RPG systems like Persona 5.
Another great thing here is that the game encourages you to think tactically, as each move has a certain area of effect, meaning you are able to target more than one opponent at a time. There is also gauge that fills during combat that lets you unleash an epic Unison Raid combo attacks!
Explore the Kingdom of Fiore
Fairy Tail gives the player the opportunity to explore their surroundings using semi-open worlds. Meaning you will be able to relish the hustle and bustle of Kingdom of Fiore by dive deep into the merchant city of Magnolia or even exploring the majesty of the Flower Blooming capital of Crocus. Each map will give you the opportunity to complete side quests that will take you around these cities and more.
