Aniplex's smartphone game launches in U.S., Canada this summer

Aniplex of America announced a "Master Recruitment Campaign" at its panel at Anime Central on Saturday for Aniplex's planned release of the Fate/Grand Order smartphone game.

The campaign is a Facebook campaign for North American players of the game, and it launched on Saturday. The more likes the Facebook page gets, the more bonuses players will receive once the game launches.

Aniplex has also launched an official website for the game.

Aniplex will release the iOS and Android versions of the game this summer simultaneously in the United States and Canada. Delightworks is developing the North American app, and Aniplex is publishing the app. Aniplex of America is handling PR and marketing for the game.

Aniplex revealed that those who are already playing the Japanese version of the game will not be able to transfer their data to the new version, but players are still free to play both the English and Japanese version separately. The game will launch with content up through chapter 2.

Aniplex released the game in Japan in summer 2015 and it has been downloaded more than 8 million times. Aniplex has released all seven chapters of part one, and the first chapter of part 1.5. Aniplex has already revealed that it will try to release part 2 this year in Japan.

Kinoko Nasu supervised and wrote the scenario with Yūichirō Higashide and Hikaru Sakurai. Takashi Takeuchi is in charge of character designs and art direction.

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.
