New Fate/stay night Anime by ufotable Previewed in Teaser Video

posted on by Egan Loo
Site's meta tags list new project as TV anime

Aniplex opened a teaser site for a new animated Fate/stay night project on Friday. The trailer that began streaming on the website begins by recapping some of the events of the Fate/Zero anime animated by ufotable, then proceeds to introduce the main characters of the “next generation,” including Rin Tōsaka, Sakura Matō, Rider, Archer, and others. The meta tags for the website list the project as a TV anime. More information on the project will be unveiled in the ninth volume of Kadokawa's Type-Moon Ace magazine.

The December issue of Kadokawa's COMPTIQ magazine featured an ad for volume nine of the Type-Moon Ace magazine, and featured an image of Fate/stay night's Saber. Underneath the title, the text reads, “What has come before and what has yet to come."

The text below this reads:

“On that day, a few miracles were waiting on the voyage that Fate/stay night departed on January 30, 2004. It's been a decade since Fate/stay night left port. On January 30, 2014, the ocean on which the “Ark of Fate” rides on will move into an unknown world...”

Animation studio ufotable's founder Hikaru Kondo announced in July that ufotable will produce a new Fate/stay night project. Kondo did not specify the format that the new project will take, nor did he specify if the project would be a remake.

Studio DEEN previously animated the Fate/stay night television anime series in 2006. The studio also produced the Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works film in 2010, which covered The Unlimited Blade Works storyline from Type-Moon's game franchise.

Sentai Filmworks released both the television anime series and the film in North America. Funimation had released the television series before that in 2009. Tokyopop published 11 volumes of Datto Nishiwaki's manga version in North America before its North American branch shut down in May 2011.

The studio ufotable previously animated the Fate/Zero prequel television anime series that was based on Gen Urobuchi and Type-Moon's novel. Aniplex of America released that series in North America on Blu-ray Disc, and the company then reissued the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with an English dub.

Thanks, Kagayaki
