Go for the latest Fairy Tail adventures with Heroes Journey; the gritty dark side of Snow White in Soul Sacrifice Delta; or opt for some classic fairy tale adventures with the Disney Afternoon Collection.
Fairy Tail: Heroes Journey
Fairy Tail: Heroes Journey is based on the popular anime series and the film which was released in May 2017, to the delight of fans around the world. The great thing about this game is that it is free to play, and does not require any special consoles or PC equipment. You can enjoy Fairy Tail: Heroes Journey at no cost to you by accessing it through your web browser. The idea is that you create your own wizard, then use it to fight against the powers of evil that dominate this mystical world. The game is yet to be released, so keep an eye out for its introduction – this is one fairy tale themed way to play that you will not want to miss!
Soul Sacrifice Delta
Soul Sacrifice Delta was introduced in May 2014, and has been a popular choice with PlayStation Vita players ever since. A superior version of the original Soul Sacrifice, this game allows you to channel your inner sorcerer to defeat the baddies and progress through a multitude of levels. Watch out for a particularly creepy version of Snow White who will give you fairy tale chills right down your spine!
Disney Afternoon Collection
Do you consider yourself a bona fide Disney fan? The all-new Afternoon Collection will be right up your street! Originally released in the late 1980s/early 90s for play on the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Afternoon Collection has now been updated for fans to enjoy the games across a range of devices.
If that wasn’t enough, Disney’s incredible array of characters have often escaped their magical fantasy world to only appear in other action-packed titles. Snow White herself has appeared in Soul Sacrifice Delta back in 2013, while Hansel and Gretel have appeared in their very own Hansel and Gretel slot. Jet forward to 2017 though and you can now play DuckTales, Chip ‘n Dale and much more via Microsoft Windows, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
