posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the upcoming iOS and Android game Fate/Grand Order began streaming a "Rider edition" television ad on Saturday. The ad reveals a new Rider character designed by Mineji Sakamoto. Saori Hayami 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 previously aired a TV ad for a new Saber character last week.
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.
