Fairy Tail: Gekitou! Madoushi Kessen (フェアリーテイル激闘！士決戦 Feariiteiru Gekitou! Madoushi Kessen?, lit. Fairy Tail: Fight! Wizard Battle), full title TV Anime Fairy Tail: Gekitou! Madoushi Kessen, is a fighting game developed and published by Hudson Soft for the Nintendo DS, released on July 22, 2010. It is based on the long-running Fairy Tail anime series, which is based on Hiro Mashima's manga series of the same name. In Madoushi Kessen, aspiring celestial wizard Lucy Heartfilia has just joined the prominent Fairy Tail guild of magic. Shortly after joining, she forms a team with adventurous dragon slayer Natsu Dragneel, laid-back ice wizard Gray Fullbuster, powerful sword-wielding wizard Erza Scarlet, and Natsu's flying cat companion, Happy. The game follows the team as they take on quests throughout the nation of Fiore, using their skill in magic to aid ordinary citizens, defend against aggressive wizards, and face demons from their pasts.
The main story progresses through one-on-one fights on a 2D plane. As all playable characters are wizards, charging magic to perform special magic attacks is a significant element of general gameplay. Battles are split by scenes where characters interact through text boxes. Fairy Tail newcomer Lucy acts as the narrator of the story, and keeps a log of her adventures in her journal; since not all story elements of the show are covered, Lucy’s journal tends to go over unexplained plot points throughout the story. Aside from the main story, the game also contains a Quest Mode where certain missions can be taken on by specific characters.
