posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The February issue of Kodansha's Young Ace magazine revealed on Friday that a new manga in the Fate/Grand Order franchise titled Fate Grand Order Duel: YA Tokuiten: Misshitsu Yūgi Makyō Shibuya: Shibuya Kettō Jiken (Fate/Grand Order Duel: YA Singularity: Secret Room Play Magical Border Shibuya: Shibuya Duel Incident) will launch in the magazine's March issue on February 4.
The manga is based on the Fate/Grand Order Duel -collection figure- board game that launched in Japan on August 1. The game features mini figures of the game's Servants, and command cards. Eiichirō Mashin (Himuro no Tenchi Fate/school life manga) is drawing the manga. Aniplex is supervising the project, and Type-Moon is credited with the original work.
The March issue of Young Ace will also publish the first chapter of one of four new manga that are launching based on the Fate/Grand Order game's "Epic of Remnant" story. The manga running in Young Ace will be based on the second part, "Ashu Tokuiten II Denshō Chitei Sekai Agartha: Agartha no Onna" (Subspecies Singularity II: Legendary Subterranean World Agartha: Woman of Agartha). Manga for the other three parts will launch in separate magazines.
Two separate Fate/Grand Order manga, Shiramine's Fate/Grand Order -mortalis:stella- and Takeshi Kawabuchi's Fate/Grand Order -turas realta-, launched in summer 2017. Kodansha Comics licensed Fate/Grand Order -mortalis:stella- for an English release.
Aniplex released the Fate/Grand Order game in Japan in summer 2015. The game received an English release in the United States and Canada in June 2017. A 74-minute television anime based on the game titled Fate/Grand Order: First Order aired in Japan in December 2016.
