There will be more than 12 playable characters for players to get their hands on, and they’ll be able to form their dream teams of unlikely Fairy Tail members and rivals, and from their they’ll set off on an adventure never seen before. The new trailer shows off five new playable characters:
- The Sky God Slayer Sherria Blendy from Lamia Scale.
- The Strongest Fencer Kagura Mikazuchi from Mermaid Heel.
- The Handsome Blue Pegasus mage Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki.
- The White Dragon Sting Eucliffe.

The title will cover several of the anime’s arcs, but it will not cover the entirety of the story. The main focus of the story will be on rebuilding the guild, and this will tie directly into gameplay. Players will go on missions, accept requests, and slowly raise the guild’s renown to the next level via the title’s lettered ranking system. Completing missions will earn you money, and this will be used to upgrade the guild’s exterior. You’ll be able to add things like a magic shop, or a better quest board. There are characters that’ll join the guild through the course of the story, but some you’ll have to forge bonds with to get them apart of your guild. Supporting characters can also be recruited to join, but they won’t be playable. They will, however, help out around the guild.
