Notes Co., Ltd, Aniplex Inc., and DELiGHTWORKS Inc. announced their plans to launch an English version of Fate/Grand Order in North American territories in Summer 2017 at the Aniplex industry panel at Sakura-Con in Seattle, Washington. The game will be available on both iOS and Android platforms.
Fate/Grand Order is one of the most successful mobile role-playing game in Japan. Players will become Masters, and together with characters called Heroic Spirits (also known as Servants), they will embark on a journey to the past called Grand Order.
“Fate/Grand Order has done incredibly well in Japan. It brings me great joy to know that the fans in North America will soon be able to enjoy the game as well,” said Atsuhiro Iwakami, President of Aniplex Inc. “The epic story and exciting battle system come together as the ‘greatest Holy Grail War in history.’ I hope we can bring this excitement to as many people as possible.”
Many famous creators and artists have been invited to participate in the creation of the game. Such contributors include Takashi Takeuchi (illustrator) and Kinoko Nasu (writer) of TYPE-MOON as well as a lot of internationally famous voice actors. The epic story contains both a main scenario as well as many character scenarios, which come together in a tale that is more than one million words.
Further details will be released regularly on the official website, Facebook and Twitter (@FateGO_USA). Also, new information will also be announced throughout conventions across the United States starting at Anime Central in Chicago in May to Anime Expo in Los Angeles in July. No news as of yet whether it will come to Europe but that news will likely be announced at a later. Stay tuned to GamEir and I’ll be sure to keep you appraised.
