Hello again, Type-Moon fans and Cafe faithfuls! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Oh, don’t all cheer at once!
Last time we met, we discussed Ufotable’s latest Fate/Stay Night project. It was confirmed that the project would be a serial anime, in the same vein as their highly successful adaptation of Fate/Zero. Speculation and hints suggested that the new anime would be an adaptation of the popular Heaven’s Feel route.
Thanks to a new PV (below) released at Ufotable’s Fate Project presentation, we can confirm that this is, in fact, not the case. The new anime, set to begin in October and split into two cours, will adapt the Unlimited Blade Works route. The route was previously adapted by Ufotable into an animated movie, which led to several scenes being cut and condensed for time – the serial format will allow for much greater depth and a closer adaptation of the source material. Thanks to the extra time, it will also allow me to enjoy Saber to much greater depths! Hohoho...
But don’t be disappointed, Heaven’s Feel fans! Ufotable have announced that they will be giving the Sakura-centric route the animated movie treatment. This announcement also came with a new PV! It seems likely then that they may give it the full anime adaptation somewhere down the line, much as they have done with Unlimited Blade Works.
Finally, a new iOS/Android game based on the Fate universe has been announced. Fate/Grand Order will apparently cover the battle for the Holy Grail across seven generations, with scenarios written by Type-Moon’s Kinoko Nasu, and art by a broad range of artists. Hopefully they’ll capture my good side! And ho, one last treat for you - this also has a PV! Although it doesn’t show much but Moon-Runes, it does call the project a ‘Fate Online Project Reboot’.
So, with that said: PVs for everyone! ...And yet, no PVs for the long awaited Caster route. How sad...
