Looks like Type-Moon was able to follow through on their promise!
The newest entry into the Fate Series, Fate/Grand Order released on July 29th or July 30th in Japan.
And it is glorious. And as usual the folks on the various Fate Reddits and Beast’s Lair have been compiling information about the game.
However if you like to play Pokemon you remember Pokebank?
If you don’t know PokeBank is a cloud based service that allow gamers to store their Pokemon in the cloud and send them there for storage. It was intended to replace all other forms of transfer between games from 6th gen onward.
However…it failed at epically at launch. Nintendo didn’t expect for so many people to log on so fast and the servers crashed. PokeBank was delayed for months until it came out around early 2015.
Why am I talking about PokeBank with Type Moon? Exact same thing happened and as of July 30th, Fate/Grand Order is down for maintenance.
Granted it happened because people were rerolling for better Servants but still Type-Moon’s fault for expecting that we wouldn’t reroll and not planning ahead for it.
Anyway before the servers went down, the folks at Beast’s Lair compiled information on all the Servants that could be rerolled for.
Note: These are the heroes that haven’t been seen in any other Fate series.
I’m going to show you who they are and what class. And since I’m a nice guy I’m going to give you their historical place.

And with that those are all the Servants that have been revealed. There has also been a reveal of Servant strengths and weaknesses.
Saber Class > Lancer Class
Lancer Class > Archer Class
Archer Class > Saber Class
Rider Class > Caster Class
Caster Class > Assassin Class
Assassin Class > Rider Class
Berserker deals and receives double damage to and from all classes save Shielder.
Shielder and Ruler are except from class weaknesses. So if you’re going to spam reroll try and get Jeanne.
Now the truth of Shielder’s identity. She is someone that the Protagonist’s already knows.
According to the folks at the Beast’s Lair, Mashu is Demi-Servant who was merged with an unknown Servant.
Which explains why there is so much focus on Shielder in the opening and why Shielder is your starting Servant instead of Arturia Pendragon or Jeanne D’Arc.
Speaking of the opening here’s some very awesome screenshots.
Of course I’m not the type of guy that will just show you these pictures and not give you the opening to download.
So here we go.
I’m excited. It’s been confirmed the further you go into the story the more Servants you’ll get. Gilgamesh and Scathach have been confirmed for later in the story. So be patient. Wait for the King of Heroes and the most badass Lancer ever.
So that’s all I’ve got for you.
