Koei Tecmo has posted new screenshots for the upcoming Fairy Tail RPG, detailing three new characters in the game alongside a description of the friendship and conversation system.
The new cast additions include:
- The fan-favorite user of “Heavenly Body Magic,” Jellal Fernandes from Crime Sorcière
- The “Drawing Card” of Fairy Tail, Mirajane Strauss
- The “Thunder Dragon Slayer” and grandchild of Makarov, Laxus Dreyar
Koei Tecmo's description of the friendship level system in Fairy Tail can be found below, alongside screenshots of special conversations and the newly revealed characters.
Fairy Tail is set to release on March 19 in Europe & Japan, March 20 in North America for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. If you missed it, you can check out the release date trailer and pre-order information, previous character introductions, or the Paris Games Week trailer.
As characters fight together in the same party, their bonds gradually strengthen, and as their friendship level increases, special conversations will play out, including original dialogue written specifically for the FAIRY TAIL game. Stronger bonds also allow for enhanced attacks. For example: the powerful Magic Chain ability can last for a longer period of time after teammates establish a significant bond. In addition, playing through the game’s original character relationship stories as well as the main the story will raise the party member’s Character Rank, unlocking a bounty of new battle skills.
