Type-Moon opened a website on Saturday to reveal that it is working on a Fate/Grand Order Arcade game. The team battle game is slated to launch in arcades in Japan in 2018. Type-Moon, Aniplex, and Delight Works Inc. are partnering with Sega on the game.
Aniplex released the Fate/Grand Order smartphone game in Japan in summer 2015 and it has been downloaded more than 9 million times. The game received an English release in the United States and Canada on June 25. The game received more than 100,000 downloads in the first 12 hours after launching.
A 74-minute television anime based on the game titled Fate/Grand Order: First Order aired in Japan on December 31. Aniplex of America, Crunchyroll, and Daisuki streamed the special the same day. Aniplex of America will release the special on Blu-ray Disc in North America on October 24 with Japanese and English audio.
The franchise also inspired a stage play that ran from July 14-17 at the Zepp Blue Theater in Roppongi, Tokyo. Additionally, two manga adaptations are in the works. Fate/Grand Order -mortalis:stella- launched in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine on Friday, and Fate/Grand Order -turas realta- will launch in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine on August 9.
