Upcoming game ‘Fate/Grand Order’ set for June release

Jun 11, 2017

Aniplex will be launching a new, Android-bound RPG called Fate/Grand Order this month.

A bit more about the game (per the presser):

One of the most successful mobile role-playing games ever in Japan, Fate/Grand Order has players summon powerful allies or Heroic Spirits, who are based on historical figures such as King Arthur, William Shakespeare, Hercules, and Joan of Arc. The game takes players back through history to embark on an epic quest known as Grand Order. Released July 2015 in Japan, last fall in China, and just this past month in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau, Fate/Grand Order has been downloaded over 9 million times. It has consistently topped iOS and Android charts, outperforming other popular games in downloads and revenue. The game’s exciting storyline and compelling play keep fans engaged and wanting more.


Aniplex president and the game’s producer Atsuhiro Iwakami talks about the advantages of having an existing universe to build upon. “Players enjoy being a part of the story of Fate/Grand Order,” he says. “Unlike many other popular mobile games, we have the Fate universe to draw upon. It provides a captivating narrative for fans to become a part of, and keeps them playing.”

DELiGHTWORKS’s Creative Director and the game’s developer Yosuke Shiokawa mentions the ease of getting into it. “Fate/Grand Order is a tactical, turn based RPG which features several chapters that take the players to a different notable point in human history. Together with different seasonal events, players will be put to the test with challenging missions and quests,” he says. “One of the greatest appeals of Fate/Grand Order is that it is easy to learn, but hard to master. The game requires both in-depth strategy and skill to advance the player through ever changing obstacles.”

Whet your appetite? It’s due out on the Play Store on June 25th.
