Aniplex released the Fate/Grand Order smartphone game in Japan in summer 2015. The game received an English release in the United States and Canada on June 25.
A 74-minute television anime based on the game titled Fate/Grand Order: First Order aired in Japan on December 31. Aniplex of America, Crunchyroll, and Daisuki streamed the special the same day. Aniplex of America will release the special on Blu-ray Disc in North America on October 24 with Japanese and English audio.
