Prior to their upcoming interview with Keisuke Kikuchi, producer for Fairy Tail RPG, Nintendo Everything revealed the upcoming title will not feature English voice acting.
While a number of fans were disappointed by this news, it honestly isn’t that unexpected. For starters, Fairy Tail never really got much of a fan base in the west for a number of reasons, most notable being some later story choices. From there, more and more niche games are adopting Japanese only voice acting, which might not appeal to the general audience but certainly matches the core demographic. Still, it’s better to get Fairy Tail RPG than not.
For those unfamiliar with the Fairy Tail RPG, here is a brief overview:
Based on the fantasy adventure comic about Natsu, a Dragon Slayer of the rowdy Fairy Tail magician guild and his unique group of friends battling against no less unique and memorable enemies. Fairy Tail was published in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine, selling over 60 million copies worldwide.
