With CCC being one of the best things Nasu has written, and Sakurai joining in this time, this could actually have a pretty damn entertaining story.

Though if it's an action game it might not have much text period

Now, I don't always agree with duckroll on things but he is right here.

Fate/Zero is the only good thing ever made in this series. The rest is all whack as fuck.

I've never been able to get into the games, especially the recent mobile one.

A Musou game could be interesting though.
To me the Fate series are like Fullmetal Panic, the main series I don't like but the spin-off series are the bests. People that haven't seen it go watch Fumofu/Carnival Phantasm even if you don't like the main series

Even though I barely got 2 bosses into fate/extra before getting bored out of my mind I'm still mad we never got CCC.

And I agree that zero is the only decent part of Fate, and god knows I've wasted my life playing all three routes of that shitty vn, which I wouldn't recommend anyone doing unless you hate yourself.


Servants (Playable Characters)

Nero Claudius (voiced by Sakura Tange) – A servant who fought through the Moon Holy Grail War. She also has a mysterious form change.
Caster Tamamo no Mae (voiced by Chiwa Saito) – A servant who uses various magic skills.
Saber Altera (voiced by Mamiko Noto) – Her first appearance in the main series after her appearance in Fate/Grand Order.

If these are the only playable characters... Eugh.
everybody likes Saber, it's not possible not to like her even if you try hard

Only decent saber is Red/Nero Saber, rest are shit.

Man, this just goes to show you how little I know about the Fate series. I just watched Zero -> UBW and thought I'd seen everything there was. What's all this red saber stuff? You mean there's another saber other than that awful Arturia who's only real claim to fame is her finishing move?

Anyways, depending on who the playable characters are in this game, I'm totally in.

Part of me always hates hearing about these awesome games because I know the chances of NA localization are slim.

If Red Saber surprises you, just wait till you meet Pink, Alternative, Lily, Opaque red, Grey, Casual, and Mature Alternative Saber.

PS: keep your knowledge of Fate lore to just the Zero -> UBW stuff. Going any further takes down a dark path with no light at the end of it.

Ooh that background art looks really nice. Glad to see caster back with her original va, she was a pretty fun character :p

I gave up on everything Fate related after watching the first (terrible) F/SN anime, but a decent Musou / Senran styled game could rekindle my interest.

I loved the original VN, Zero and UBW despite their faults, and I am enjoying Extra, so sue me. Sure, there are numerous things I'd do differently, and the Nasuverse itself is a bleak, utterly FUBAR place in many, many ways, but I do love the series and many of its characters.

An actual action game in this series was long, long overdue.

Well Fate Zero is the only thing I can in all honestly call good in the series. I'd check out the anime or LN if you can.

Watch Fate/Zero because it's good. Skip everything else because they're bad. :p

This... isn't inaccurate.
... god I wanted to like UBW, but it was so boring.
It was talking, talking, and more talking... Which is fine in other series (IE: Monogatari), but boring here.


... Also should watch Carnival Phantasm just for the lulz.

Japan really likes saber

There's a ton of running jokes in FGO about Sabers. Not sure if it's widespread in the fandom for the series though. They even did an event poking fun at it, Saber Wars. It was released around the time Star Wars came out. It had nothing to do with the movie but it was pretty silly.

Ah Fate/Stay Night, what an odd visual novel. Setting is fantastic (despite not really doing much with said setting outside a generic excuse for physical conflict, see Fate/Zero for a better use of the setting as a Death Game), the characters are neat, the dialogue ranges from errrrr to wat, and the exploration of heroism from three perspectives is very interesting. Also way too wordy for it's own good, really needed an editor.

Fate/Extra is probably better, but Fate/Stay Night gives me some fun stuff to think about. The animes outside animation and Fate/Zero are not great, you're better off with the VN. 2006 is such a mess it's just beyond hilarious.

Will see how this project goes. Fate hasn't been on my mind for awhile.

So is this going to be a JRPG or something else?

LOL no

Fate/Extra is very streamlined, since it only takes place in a school, and the music is fantastic. The combat system is love/hate, but I really enjoyed it. Never played an RPG like it.

And I'll be glad to never play a JRPG quite like it ever again. Rock/Paper/Scissors where guessing wrong results in Game Over is the antithesis of fun.

Fate/Extra had a lot of things going for it but that combat system can go die in a fire.

Do we really need to turn every Fate game thread into a TYPEMOON "waifu wars" discussion? The amount of off topic derailing that goes on is insane. This is about a game who cares about if Fate/Zero is better than the TV adaptaKanata > Type Mercury (ORT) = Ado Edem > Type Jupiter > Type Saturn > Type Moon (Crimson Moon) > Type Pluto = The Six Sisters > Type Venus > Arcueid (Full power) > Balor > Primordial Demons > True Demons > Primate Murder > Original Roa > Angra Mainyu > Zelretch (young) > Lancelot (F-15) > Gilgamesh (Vimana) > Counter Guardian Archer > Gilgamesh (Tohsaka) > Gilgamesh (Kotomine) = Arcueid (30%) > Dark Sakura > Dark Saber > Lancelot = Saber > 5th Berserker > Dark Berserker > 17th Roa (Elesia) > 4th Rider > Merem Solomon > 5th Lancer (optimal) > 4th Lancer = 5th Rider (Sakura/optimal) = 4th Caster (optimal) > 5th Lancer (Kotomine) = 5th Caster = 4th Caster (Ryuunosuke) > 5th Rider (Shinji) > Nrvnqsr = Clairvoyant Fujino = Kurogiri > Archer > Kouma > 5th Assassin = 4th Assassin > Aoko = Barthomeloi = Arcueid (6%) = Kojirou = Ciel = "Ryougi Shiki" = Soren Araya (within the Ogawa Building) > Gun God (Black Barrel) > Touko = El-Melloi = Night of Wallachia > Sion Tatari = Melty Blood Satsuki = R.

Lol , i couldn't help but laugh ...

I have only 3 problem with this list

Shinji should had been lower

Obviously Nero Saber. Also saw scans showing Caster (same one from Extra) and Attila Saber (from Grand Order).

Extra Caster is the best caster and nero saber is so much more entertaining than blue saber will ever be.

2 reasons to get this game.

Come on guys. You can like other sabers all you want. But even you know that you can't have Fate musou (regardless of which universe it's based on) without EKUSUKARIBA. It's like having a dragon ball game where nobody screams Kamehameha.
Or Naruto game without "RASENGAN"

First i need my gilgamesh AND my archer there is trully no reason for them to not be there ( given the setting ) , but i guess they'll keep those reveals for later.
After you can add whoever they want afterwards
