Based on the anime and manga series of the same name, Fairy Tail is a JRPG that will cover material from the Grand Magic Games arc, the Tenrou Island arc, and the Tartaros arc. Combat is set up in a 3×3 grid, and players will be able to cast magic attacks, chain together combos, and make the most of both strengths and weaknesses.
The game will come out for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on June 26, 2020. Those on the PC will be able to play the title a day earlier, on June 25, 2020. Those that order the Digital Deluxe version of Fairy Tail will be able to get for themselves a special Grand Magic Games costume, a bonus Lacrima set, and a DDX Limited Ryza costume for Lucy. Those that pre-order any version can get themselves the Early Purchase Bonus special costume for Erza.
