In a little under two minutes, the latest Fairy Tail trailer gives you a decent overview of the game. Starting with content, we’ll be playing missions from the Grand Magic arc to the Tartaros arc. Some of those missions will be taken from the guild request board which also makes an appearance. It will probably help to provide some of the original content and expand the universe a little.
Fairy Tail is nothing without the characters, and there will be 16 playable characters in the game. The game’s official site has all of them listed. You’ll be playing with Natsu (obviously), Lucy, Gray, Erza, Mirajane, Laxus, Jellal, Juvia, and others. The trailer also shows you can create your own custom team to become the top guild.
To make sure your team is the best, there are three different places in the trailer to improve or buff your characters. The laboratory will let you power up your abilities. I paused the trailer here, and I noticed that you will be synthesizing talismans as lacrima. It doesn’t look as deep as the Atelier games that Gust has also developed, but I can hope.
The other two places are the shop and the bar. Lisanna runs the shop, and the trailer shows some healing items for sale. Kanna runs the bar, and she sells drinks to give your team a boost. There is an Ethernano-Infused Water item that will temporarily boost the team’s attack by 3% in the trailer. It may not be huge at first, but it could make a big difference.
Overall, the trailer is focused on the action. The Great Magic spells shown in the trailer may be the most devastating and visually explosive as you might expect for a game about powerful wizards. It’s looking pretty so far. Speaking of, an early purchase bonus grants you Erza’s Miss Fairy Tail costume. You can see it towards the end of the trailer.
Check out the full trailer for a look at everything Fairy Tail will be bringing to your PS4 when it releases on July 31st.
