Fairy Tail is a popular Role Playing Game (RPG) for the Nintendo Switch that has quickly gained a cult following since its release. Players take on the role of an aspiring wizard in the magical kingdom of Fiore, where they must complete a variety of quests to collect magical objects and increase their ability. The game combines classic RPG elements with a unique turn-based combat system, and offers an immersive story with detailed visuals and memorable characters. In this review, we assess the gameplay mechanics, graphics, story, and overall experience of Fairy Tail.
Fairy Tail’s turn-based combat system is fast-paced and engaging. Players are provided with a range of different spells to use in battle, as well as various powerful items that can be activated to defeat enemies or help allies. Additionally, certain combinations of spells create “combos” which grant increased damage or effects—this system grants players great strategic possibilities in battling their foes. Furthermore, each character has special abilities (called “exceeds”) which provide unique bonuses in battle; these abilities can be powered up by collecting magical objects throughout the game.
The game also features side quests scattered throughout the world map; these quests can be completed for rewards such as extra gold coins or rare items. These reward may not seem important at first glance but are essential for powering up characters and unlocking more powerful abilities.
Fairy Tail boasts impressive 3D visuals that make exploring Fiore all the more enjoyable. Character models are faithfully rendered and animations are smooth and pleasant to look at; during battles especially it’s easy to get lost admiring your character’s flashy attacks.
