Noisy Fairy, Move Out!
Code Fairy's story, according to NicheGamer, will focus around on "Noisy Fairy," a mobile suit special forces unit from the Principality of Zeon, and formed by Kycilia Zabi, that was assigned to Earth, particularly in North America.
Led by Ensign Alma Stirner, the team is composed of mobile suit pilots like Helena Hegel and Mia Brinkman, along with several choice Zeon Earth Forces personnel. Code Fairy will document the struggles of Noisy Fairy during the "One Year War."
Character designs for the game are created by Masayoshi Tanaka, whose works were also seen in other anime such as Your Name and Darling in the Franxx.
Takigawa Kyoshi, who worked in other Mobile Suit Gundam titles, including Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: Missing Link, will be in charge for its mechanical designs, including its mobile suits.
Speaking of mobile suits, Code Fairy will also bring in its unique roster of mobile suits that will be playable in the game. According to the teaser trailer that was released by the developers of the game, a custom painted MS-06G High Mobility Zaku II Ground Type was seen, which Stirner will be piloting in the game.
The trailer also revealed other Zeon mobile suits like the MS-O5L Zaku I Sniper Type with a shoulder shield attached to its right shoulder area, the MS-09G Dwadge, and the MS-08TX Efreet, as well as the typical MS-06F Zaku II.
Aside from its characters and mobile suits, the trailer also revealed Code Fairy's core gameplay, which is similar to Battle Operation, particularly Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2 - players must control a mobile suit in order to wipe out the opposing team to accomplish an objective.
The game will also have other features such as voice chat commands, Pilot Skills who acts just like the Bursts from the Gundam Extreme Vs. series, target linking, and mobile suit customization, where players can customize their mobile suits depending on what kind of performance they want for it.
Also in the game, they can practice their mobile suit piloting skills in the Simulator, where they can engage in mock battles to gain experience.
Players can also link their save data from Code Fairy with that from Battle Operation 2, which means that any data coming from the former can be transferred from the latter, and vice versa.
Also, those who finished a special mission in Code Fairy will get a playable unit that they can use in Battle Operation 2, while those who completed a special task in the latter will get a new mission for the former.
