The June issue of Kodansha's Young Ace magazine revealed on Thursday that the 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) manga will temporarily change artists.

Eiichirō Mashin (Himuro no Tenchi Fate/school life manga), who was drawing the manga, broke a bone in his right wrist. However, because Mashin has already prepared the storyboard for the next few chapters, a proxy artist will finish the chapters in his stead, and so the manga will continue without interruption. Takemaru Yokoshima will draw the manga for those chapters.

The manga, which is part of the Fate/Grand Order franchise, launched in the magazine's March issue on February 4. Aniplex is supervising the project, and Type-Moon is credited with the original work.

The manga is based on the Fate/Grand Order Duel -collection figure- board game that launched in Japan in August 2018. The game features mini figures of the game's Servants, and command cards.
