GUST Studios has today confirmed that it is delaying its upcoming JRPG Fairy Tail, which was supposed to be released on March 19th. The game has now been pushed back until June 25th for PC and June 26th for the PS4 and Switch versions. The reason for the delay is that GUST needs more time to polish the game and improve the balance within it.
Fairy Tail’s producer Keisuke Kikuchi had the following to say:
I am truly sorry for Fairy Tail’s delay, and the inconvenience caused to our fans, partners, and stakeholders who are looking forward to this title. Please allow us to take further time to polish the game to ensure it is as high quality as possible, so we can offer you a truly immersive experience. We will be working hard to enhance the magic effects, event scene effects, improving the game balance, and more! We will talk about the improvements in more detail in the coming months. This delay will allow us to ensure we provide you a much more satisfying game. Thank you for your understanding.”
Fairy Tail will be following the Grand Magic Games storyline, and below you can see a description of the game.
The fiery and intense magical battles from the series are breathtakingly brought to life in FAIRY TAIL’s environment; with a diverse range of magic available for the extraordinary characters to wield. Renowned moves from the series light up the screen, with some characters such as Natsu being able to take advantage of mode changes – like utilizing the eye-popping Lightning Fire Dragon Mode. In addition, some guild members will be available to support in battle; including the Fairy Tail Guild Master, Makarov Dreyar, who can be called in to provide powerful aid on the battlefield.
