Simulcast to begin October 4

The official website for ufotable's Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works television anime announced on Wednesday that the series will stream in English-speaking territories on Crunchyroll and Hulu. The stream will start on October 4, the same day the anime premieres in Japan, but the times have not yet been unveiled.

Premiere screenings of the anime will be held in seven different locales: Japan's Tokyo, Osaka, and Tokushima prefecture, Los Angeles, California in the United States, Paris, France, Nuremberg, Germany, and Seoul, South Korea. All seven screenings will be held at the same time on September 28. The series will also stream in French territories on Wakanim and in German territories on Peppermint.TV, and will also air in Korea on Aniplus.

The new anime will follow the original game's 'Unlimited Blade Works' route and will premiere on Japanese television on October 4 at midnight. It will be split up into two cours or quarters of the year. The latter half of the anime will premiere in April 2015.

The staff list includes:

Original character designs: Takashi Takeuchi
Director: Takahiro Miura
Character Design: Tomonori Sudō, Hisayuki Tabata, Atsushi Ikariya
Color Key: Emi Chiba, Mika Matsuoka
Art Director: Koji Eto

An anime film of the original game's 'Heaven's Feel' route has also been green-lit.
