Aniplex Teases Fate Grand Order Pencil-Rolling Battle Game
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Aniplex opened a teaser website on Friday for a mystery "analog game" titled "Fate/Grand Order Summon Pencil Servant." In this "somewhat nostalgic" Fate/Grand Order game, the Servants are pencils, and the player must battle by rolling them.
Details are scarce, but the Twitter account calls it "new merchandise," and it is slated for this year.
Aniplex released the Fate/Grand Order iOS and Android game in Japan in summer 2015, and announced last month that it will release the game in North America. The Japanese version has been downloaded more than 8 million times.
The game inspired the 74-minute Fate/Grand Order: First Order television anime special that aired in Japan on December 31. Aniplex of America, Crunchyroll, and Daisuki streamed the special the same day. The game is also inspiring a stage play this July.
