New ‘Fairy Tail’ Story Trailer Adds Gildarts Clive To The Roster

by Sage Ashford

Though the title was delayed from it’s original release date, developer Gust hasn’t been sitting on it’s laurels. On the day the game was actually supposed to be released, Koei-Tecmo and Gust released a new story trailer for the title featuring key moments from the Tartaros arc of the anime series. Check out more from Koei-Tecmo themselves below:

One of the most powerful additions to the Fairy Tail roster to date, Gildarts is an S-Class Mage who uses “Crush” magic to reduce anything he touches to rubble. Gildarts joins the fight in support of Natsu and other party members, using his overwhelming strength to help swing the odds in the guild’s favor. Throughout the adventure, fans will be able to put together their own dream team of Fairy Tail members and their rivals, including everyone from Gildarts to Erza, Gray, and Gajeel. The more characters continue to fight together in the same party, their bonds will gradually strengthen, and as their friendship level increases, special conversations called “Bond Dialogue” will play out, including original dialogue written specifically for the Fairy Tail game.
In addition, the first details of the game’s new Eclipse arc have also been revealed. This popular storyline revolves around “Project Eclipse,” an experiment that opens up a gate to the past, unleashing Dragons that lived over 400 years ago into the present timeline. Can Lucy and friends survive a fight against the great dragon Zirconis?
Fairy Tail is currently in development for the Nintendo Switch™, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC via Steam®, and is available now for pre-order through select retailers.
A Digital Deluxe version of Fairy Tail has also been recently revealed, boasting a special Grand Magic Games costume, a bonus Lacrima set, and a DDX Limited Ryza costume for Lucy!
Purchasing any version of the game, physically or digitally, within a limited time from launch will also unlock the Early Purchase Bonus special Miss Fairy Tail costume for Erza.

Developer Gust also discussed things that have been improved by the delay, which includes the game’s core systems, balancing, backgrounds and settings.
Fairy Tail will be available on PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch June 26th.
