“FAIRTY TAIL” author Hiro Mashima is personally organising an indie game development contest, encouraging fans to create a game based on “FAIRY TAIL”!. Mashima himself is putting up JPY 10M of his own money, plus an additional JPY 5M from Kodansha, as prize money for the winning developer.

The competition will also be personally judged by Majima, as well as members of “Creators Lab” — a department newly established by Kodansha to discover and support creators in a wider range of genres. Applications for the project will be accepted from 0:00 on 1st December 2021 to 23:59 on 17th January 2022.
