Hey it’s Deven and I’ve got some more news about Fate/Grand Order.
We’ve got a new Rider! Rider’s been well known for having well loved characters like Medusa(Rider) and Iskander(Rider). Medusa is well loved as both a character in Heaven’s Feel as well as one of the most beautiful Servants as in the Nasu-Verse. As for Iskander, the bromance is epic and greatness!
According to the Japanese as well as the Fate Reddit the evidence points more to Minamoto no Yoshitsune. They think of it but I’m not sure about it. I’m thinking she’s Tomoe Gozen because she was a famous female samurai. Not really good work but I’m going to go with Minamoto no Yoshitsune because he has a stronger legend than Tomoe Gozen.
This new Rider is voiced by Saori Hayami! Always a good time with her.
Now to the new news about the plot.
According to ANN, Type-Moon will release a new commercial featuring a new Servant every Saturday during the broadcast of Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works Season 2.
So I’m guessing we might get a new Archer next week. But that’s another thing.
Anyway the game plot…
The game will take place in 2015. The player will take the role of either a male or female amateur Master candidate from the “Humanity Continuation Security Organization” named Chaldea.
The group exists to amend the periods of human history that have gone awry and out of order.
Their major goal is to ‘extend the reign of human history, above all else’. They’ve got the next 100 years save but some problems are up at 2015, this year! They’ve calculated that humanity will go extinct by 2016! They’ve guessed has happened because of the unobservable region that is Fuyuki City during the year of 2004 A.D.
Now as we know the 4th Grail War happened in 1994 and the 5th Grail War happened 10 years later…it’s easy to see that the 5th Grail war messed something up.
So what do? Well back in 2004 they managed to figure out a way for members of Chaldea to become Provisional Masters to summon Heroic Spirits as Servants. Now the battle is to go back to seven periods of time and fix the space-time singularities to stop the end of the world in 2016.
It is “”name for those who would rise up against human history for the sake of humans and fight fate itself.”
We can guess that the periods they will go to are these:
- First Holy Grail: Humanity Foundation Value_C+
“The First Grail: AD 1431 – ■■■■■ Hundred Year War — Orlea” – “The Holy Maiden Savior”
- Second Holy Grail: Humanity Foundation Value_B+
“The Second Grail: AD 0060 – The Eternal ■■■■■ Empire – Septem” — “The Emperor of Roses”
- Third Holy Grail: Humanity Foundation Value_A
“The Third Grail: AD 1573 – The Four Sealed Seas of the End – Okeanos” — “The Navigator of the Storm”
- Fourth Holy Grail: Humanity Foundation Value_A-
“The Fourth Grail: AD 1888 – ■■■■■■■■” — “The Knight of Londium”
- Fifth Holy Grail: Humanity Foundation Value_A+
“The Fifth Grail: AD 1783 — ■■■■■■■■■i Pluribas Unam” — “The White Cloth of ■■■■■■■”
- Sixth Holy Grail: Humanity Foundation Value_EX
“The Sixth Grail: AD 1273 — ■■■■■■■” – “The Shining Agatorum”
- Seventh Holy Grail: Humanity Foundation Value_■
“The Seventh Grail: BC ■■■■ — The Absolute Frontline in the War Against the Demonic Beasts ■■■■■■■■■” — “The Chain of Heaven”
The protagonists will use the “Fate” system call forth Servants. I’m guessing the Servants that are being introduced at the moment will be the playable Servants. So things are going to be good. I’m going to be playing with Jeanne d’Arc or Shielder.
So that’s all the news that I can find. Remember that this game is going to be epic and it’ll be coming out this summer! Let’s go save the world with our Servants!
