The original Visual Novel is still my favorite installment of the fate and Type-Moon Franchise. I would love it if Nasu and Takeuchi would get back to writing Visual Novels.

I'd like to see Fate/Stay night come to the US on Nintendo Switch. I want to play it.

Ekens tried to give a long winded theoretical reason as to why UBW was a bad anime. I don't think very many people were convinced by it. The reason UBW was bad is much more simple; Shirou barely had any characterization and Rin, Archer and other characters were flanderized. Because Fate/Stay Night was written as such a first person monologue/dialogue-heavy story, it would take immense talent to convey accurate characterization with animation. Director Takahiro Miura just didn't have what it takes.

On the other hand, Tomonori Sudou did such a good job with Heaven's Feel that I don't think there's much room to attack Fate/Stay Night anymore. All of the main characters act like reasonable people and they express their emotions well.

The actual game really needs a new translation though because the current fan translation is a complete trainwreck. Learn Japanese and you'll be able to laugh/cry about it.

I wish there was a way to get Fate/Stay Night translated. Maybe people could try tweeting to Nasu's close friend Hoshizora Meteor: https://twitter.com/meteor_

I'd also love to see the visual novel licensed but it's my understanding the license for the visual novel is way too expensive. My first experience with the Fate franchise was watching the Deen adaptation years ago when that was the only Fate anime that existed.

I am surprised that the article doesn't mention it was technically a interactive form of porn with plot.

that's because it would be disingenuous to say that, since the actual erotic content is extremely minimal in the original release. and the sex doesn't even exist in every other rerelease of the vn after that.

Yes, and the reason the erotic content of F/SN ever became a meme is because the fan translation is shit.
