Fairy Tail Gekitou! Madoushi Kessen (ＦＡＩＲＹ ＴＡＩＬ 激闘! 魔道士決戦 Fearī Teiru Gekitō! Madoushi Kessen, lit: Fairy Tail: Fight! Wizard Battle) is a video game of Fairy Tail for Nintendo DS. It is the first Fairy Tail game on the Nintendo DS developed by Hudson and it follows the story from the Macao arc to the Tower of Heaven arc.
The game itself is split between battles which are played on a 2D battlefield between up to two characters and customizing your characters with different techniques and abilities to use within battle. Battles are done in a unique way, with a character's skills depending on how one customized their characters throughout the game. In battle, one uses the arrows to move and the down arrow to charge up their magical supply to initiate different types of special attacks. A player can use basic combos and attacks without depleting their Magic bar, as well as guarding. At the same time, one is able to use their customized attacks through customizing them and assigning special techniques to the 'A', 'Y' and 'X' buttons to initiate a magical attack that depletes your Magic bar. The game is also split into numerous modes.
In story mode, one is able to play through the Macao arc to the Tower of Heaven arc where numerous battles are played throughout the story. Players are given the opportunity to choose between characters if that battle prompts so at the start. The story continues where you take control of different characters and versus different opponents throughout the story. Story mode is the main focus in unlocking characters, where certain characters such as Mirajane, Laxus and Loke need specific requirements within story mode to be unlocked such as passing the story mode for your first time.
Quest ModeThis mode allows people to participate in battles where they have to accomplish certain goals or missions from staying alive through the time limit to defeating their opponent under specific restrictions. There are numerous missions that can be unlocked, as well as using any character that you've unlocked to complete that said mission. Quests are commonly split between different ranks from C-ranked missions to S-ranked missions, with C-ranked being the least difficult and S-ranked missions being the most difficult.
The quests are usually portrayed on a plain field with two combatants where the player must accomplish certain requirements that range from defeating the opponent in a certain way or being put under certain restrictions including time limits or inability to use specific attacks.
Versus ModeAs the mode's title states, it is a mode where one can choose the settings for the battle and characters who will be participating in the battle to fight. Only characters that you've unlocked are usable and the settings in battle mode include the time-limit, the amount of lives one has and the stage.
