Koei Tecmo released a new trailer for Fairy Tail, showing off more of the spells in the game as well as a few new pieces we haven't seen. Along with the trailer they gave a bit of an explanation as to how the magic in this game will work compared to how it appears in the anime series. The game is still currently set to be released on July 30th for PC and July 31st for PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Fingers crossed the release date holds and isn't pushed back as many other games have been.
Fairy Tail's extraordinary world of magic and dragons is captured in remarkable detail throughout this all-new gaming experience, with a phenomenal focus of delivering the type of magic and mystique fans of the worldwide sensation anime and manga series have been craving. In Fairy Tail, characters can now combine in a Unison Raid to unleash their magic spells at once to overpower enemies. This Unison Raid ability originally premiered in the Fairy Tail anime and manga, but in the game, all new magic and character team-ups will be featured, introducing exciting new powers from never before seen character combinations.
In addition, a series of Extreme Magic Spells will also be introduced, including Kanna's Fairy Glitter – which can be activated when magic attacks are combined, Makarov's "Giant" magic, and even a spell known as Exceed Special, which will help your party out in times of terrible trouble. Each magic spell carries unique elemental properties and affinities, with magic dealing more damage to specific opponents. Characters can then upgrade their magic spells by gaining experience points throughout their journey. Also, by using magic attacks during battle, the party's Awakening Gauge increases. When the gauge is fully filled, characters can be Awakened, enabling them to utilize even more powerful magical abilities – and with each character employing different Awakening Modes, players will be able to expand their strategies across a broad range of sorceries and enemies.
