FUNimation Entertainment and GameSamba announce FAIRY TAIL RPG with Kodansha

Flower Mound, TX – FUNimation Entertainment and GameSamba, Group 1200 Media companies, announced today that they intend to execute an agreement with Kodansha to develop a free-to-play online role-playing game based on the Fairy Tail brand. The browser-based game will have worldwide territory rights and is expected to be released in 2015. “This collaborative relationship will broaden the brand awareness of one of the hottest anime properties currently in the market,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO of FUNimation Entertainment. “This will give fans a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the Kingdom of Fiore.”

The Fairy Tail game, being developed and published by GameSamba and its sister studio GameSamba HK, will be a turn-based role-playing game (RPG) where players will take on the role of a wizard fighting alongside members of the Fairy Tail guild in an attempt to recover their past. Players will be able to select from a variety of magic affinities, and unlock and customize spells as they play, creating their dream wizard in the world of Fairy Tail.

The game will allow players to befriend and fight alongside characters from Fairy Tail, create a guild, and more. Players will be able to complete quests from their own guild’s Request Board, and take on epic challenges by forming Wizard Teams with their friends.

More details about the game will be revealed throughout the coming months. To stay up to date on the development of the game, fans can stay tuned to the GameSamba website and Facebook page.
