Fate/Grand Order Smartphone Game's TV Ad Features New Saber Character

Black Rock Shooter's huke designs new character for iOS/Android game arriving this summer

The official website for the upcoming iOS and Android game Fate/Grand Order began streaming a "Saber edition" television ad on Saturday. The ad reveals a new Saber character designed by huke (Black Rock Shooter, Steins;Gate). Mamiko Noto will voice the character in the game.

The video also features the song "Shikisai" (colors) by Maaya Sakamoto, the voice of Ruler.

Type-Moon will air a new commercial featuring a new servant every Saturday night during the broadcast of the Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works anime's second season.

Type-Moon had originally planned to release the game this spring, but the official website notes that the game will arrive this summer instead. The website refers to the RPG as "Fate Online Project REBOOT."

Fate/stay night creator Kinoko Nasu is writing and overseeing the original scenario for the game along with Yuichirō Higashide and Hikaru Sakurai. DELiGHTWORKS is developing the game and Ryosuke Nakamura is directing the opening at A-1 Pictures. Takashi Takeuchi is credited as the original character and art designer, but the game will feature designs by a number of artists.

The cast so far includes:

Ayako Kawasumi as Saber (designed by Takashi Takeuchi)
Maaya Sakamoto as Ruler (designed by Takashi Takeuchi)
Junichi Suwabe as Archer (designed by Takashi Takeuchi)
Mamiko Noto as Saber (designed by huke)

The game takes place in 2015. The player takes the role of either a male or female amateur master candidate from the "humanity continuation security organization" named "Caldea." The organization exists to amend the periods of human history that have gone awry and out of order. The protagonists use the "Fate" system to summon great heroes of the past and undertake seven Holy Grail quests (called Grand Orders).

The game can be played on a smartphone held either horizontally or vertically.

The official Type-Moon Twitter account also revealed on Saturday that the Saber route for the smartphone version of Fate/stay night will be free until the end of June. The account added that the Android version of the Fate/say night game will be available in a few days.
