TYPE-MOON Announces Two Fate/Grand Order Anime Projects

Following on the success of the hit mobile RPG Fate/Grand Order, TYPE-MOON has announced that two animated projects based on known arcs from the said game are now in the works.

The announcement was made during the height of the game’s third anniversary event, which also commemorated the success of the Fate franchise for the last fourteen years, starting with the visual novel Fate/Stay Night. 

Sony Music-owned publisher Aniplex revealed that Cloverworks will be creating the TV adaptation of the game’s seventh singularity (trailer posted above), “Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia.” On the other hand, Production I.G. will be helming a two-part movie adaptation of the game’s most beloved arc, “Divine Realm of The Round Table: Camelot.”

Aniplex had previously run a survey of Japanese fans in July, asking the audience to decide the most popular storylines from the RPG.

Toshifumi Akai has been confirmed as director for the Cloverworks anime series, which is due to air in 2019. Currently confirmed for the film tie-ins are Fate/Grand Order lead character designer Takeshi Takeuchi, alongside composers Keita Haga and Hideyuki Fukasawa.

For those unfamiliar with Fate/Grand Order, it is a visual novel-esque turn-based mobile RPG which takes place in a future universe where the Chaldea Security Organization, a company whose numerous projects have essentially guaranteed humanity’s existence for the future, discovers that humanity will soon go extinct. To avoid this event, the organization use time-travel to send various agents from across time to find the source of this extinction.
