FGO is a popular mobile game based on the Fate series by Kinoko Nasu and TYPE-MOON that is currently the top grossing app in Japan on iTunes and Google Play.

Fate/GO - Director Yosuke Shiokawa Interview @ Sakura-Con 2017 stars

At their most recent panel at Sakura-Con in Seattle, Aniplex revealed one of their biggest projects for this year. Fate/Grand Order, or Fate/GO is a popular mobile game in Japan that already has a legion of international players. The game will be officially making its way in English to North America this Summer. We sat down with the Director of the game, Yosuke Shiokawa during a short round table interview.

Fate/Grand Order English Version to be Launched in Summer 2017 stars

Aniplex Inc. (Tokyo, Japan) and DELiGHTWORKS Inc. (Tokyo, Japan) announced their plans to launch an English version of Fate/Grand Order in North American territories in Summer 2017 at the Aniplex industry panel at Sakura-Con in Seattle, Washington. The game will be available on both iOS and Android platforms.

Fate/Go Coming to the US? stars

Attendees this morning in Seattle for Sakura-Con couldn’t help but notice the cut out displays and banner from the mobile game Fate/Grand Order (Fate/GO) at the Aniplex booth. 

Aniplex of America is the distributor for the animated short, Fate/Grand Order First Order; however, fans will note instead of using the key art from the animation, Aniplex has opted to use the artwork from the mobile game Fate/Grand Order. Aniplex is also set for a major announcement at 11AM PST tomorrow morning during their panel. In addition, while this may be a coincidence, a press conference will be held tomorrow at Sakura-Con to “unveil a major Anime series that will have a new game launching in the US in 2017.” A number of key staff members affiliated with Fate/GO has been rumored to be in attendance. 

In 2016, Fate/Go was released in China by biligame, so the likelihood of the game to be released internationally in other territories is a possibility based on the success and popularity of the franchise. Another possibility is the announcement may be related to the VR exclusive title for the Playstation 4 Fate/Grand Order VR which was first shown to the public last month during AnimeJapan held at the Tokyo Big Sight.

As we have staff onsite at Sakura-Con, we'll keep you updated and will also be present for the press conference tomorrow.

We had a chance to sit down for a few minutes and ask a few questions about her career.

Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works LA Screening Impressions stars

On Sunday, I was one of the few lucky people in Los Angeles to attend the premier screening of Aniplex's Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works, which was sold out. The location was the Downtown Independent Theater, next to Little Tokyo, and doors did not open until 12:15 PM. Since I had to drive and didn't want to risk getting stuck in LA traffic I left early, but to my surprise there was a long line of fans already in line once I had arrived. At first I wasn't sure if I was at the right place, but once I got closer I heard someone playing music from the Fate/stay series and saw a Rin cosplayer. I signed in and got in line and waited for the doors to open. Once they opened, we were allowed inside the lobby, which had posters of the Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works series and people were taking pictures with them along with the cosplayers who attended the event. Aniplex gave every attendee an exclusive "Unlimited Blade Works Memorial Record" lithograph which has Saber, Shirou, Rin, Archer and Kotomine on it along with the locations of the screenings and date at the bottom to commemorate the event.
