In the Fate franchise, pairs of masters and heroic spirits known as servants have been fighting in a series of Holy Grail Wars, with the winning duo winning and ancient artifact that grants wishes. Fate/Samurai Remnant continues the story of the Holy Grail War in the fourth year of the Keian Era, Edo Period Japan. We are quickly approaching the game’s late September release date, and today Koei Tecmo and Omega Force released its opening animation. Animated by CloverWorks, the opening features the theme song, Zanya Gensou (feat. LICCA and Spiral Radder).

It is several decades after a blood-soaked era, and people are finally enjoying peace and tranquility. In the shadows, a battle between seven pairs of masters and servants is about to begin as the Waxing Moon Ritual unfolds. The game’s hero, Miyamoto Iori, finds himself caught up in the violence alongside his servant Saber. They fight to be the last pair remaining in order to receive the Waxing Moon Vessel, the granter of wishes.

Okay, I’ve babbled enough about the story; here’s the opening animation:

Miyamoto has studied the Niten Ichiryu style of swordsmanship. When facing enemies beyond human control, Miyamoto can instruct Saber to attack with powerful magical techniques or take direct control of the servant to attack. The game also features a number of Rogue Servants, highly powerful warriors without masters; if you’re able to bond with them, you can temporarily borrow their powers. Sometimes, they even accompany you to battle. A few of these servants will be familiar, like Rogue Lancer, there are also all-new Rogue Servants, including Rogue Rider.

If you missed the news from June, there will be different limited editions available in North America, Europe, and Japan. In North America and Europe there are special Treasure Box versions available through NIS America/Koei Tecmo Europe Online Stores; each includes the game, an art book, a cloth poster, a soundtrack CD, Command Spell stickers, two DLC costumes, the Official Short Story Translation book, and a collectible box. In Japan, the Treasure Box includes the game, a novel written by the scenario team, a Book of Kogyoku book cover, a soundtrack CD, seven Command Spell Seals, and a cloth poster; the Treasure Box + Figure DX Version includes everything from the Treasure Box and a Berserker/Musashi Miyamoto 1/7 scale figure DX version.

Developed by Omega Force and published by Koei Tecmo, Fate/Samurai Remnant will be released for PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on September 28 (Japan) and September 29 (worldwide).

She has has developed a great love of life sims and FMV titles. For her, accessibility is one of the most important parts of any game (but she also really appreciates good UI).
