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.
