Koei Tecmo has unveiled the latest English trailer for the Fairy Tail JRPG. This game has been developed by Atelier studio Gust and is almost ready for its western release. The trailer confirms the launch date for both the west and Japan. The trailer shows new characters. These same characters were revealed a few days ago alongside their Japanese voices but with English subtitles.

The trailer also revealed a Digital Deluxe Edition, which will include a set of costumes from the Great Magic Games. They are team costumes, and a bonus Lacrima set will also be included. There is also a costume for Lucy from Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout.

In an interview with twinfinite.net producer, Keisuke Kikuchi said that this could be the start of a series of games. If the game is successful, there could be a sequel in the near future. This is a great thing considering that the Atelier Ryza series is known for doing their games in sets of three.

The developers have worked on several anime-based games. From the shading to the visual techniques, the game really brings the world of Fairy Tail to life. This is a beautiful chance to explore the world in full detail while still getting to interact with fan-favorite characters.

Kikuchi did say that the creator of the animated series thoroughly reviews the models and character animations for accuracy. They have worked side by side with him to make sure that the game is accurate to his design. Turns out, the creator of Fairy Tail is an avid gamer and really wanted to be involved in the making of this game.

Koei Tecmo is known for their work on the Attack on Titan video game. The general producer for the Fairy Tail game worked on that project and regularly provides insight and feedback on how to make the game resonate with the fans.

Fan service is very important when working with animated titles and turning them into games. Fans can feel exploited and turn on developers who do not take their passion seriously.

The game is intended to be released on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It will be released on March 19, 2020, for all of those platforms. Xbox gamers do not lose hope as Keisuke Kikuchi takes the request for an Xbox release very seriously.  Fans of Fairy Tail, the wait is almost over for you to embrace your destiny and travel to the magical world only found in the animated series.
