THE HOLY GRAIL WAR RAGES ON IN KOEI TECMO’S EPIC NEW ACTION RPG, FATE/SAMURAI REMNANT
Today, KOEI TECMO Europe and developer Omega Force, alongside collaborators TYPE-MOON and Aniplex Inc., are proud to announce the latest chapter in the global phenomenon Fate series of anime and video games, Fate/Samurai Remnant. The sensationally stylized action RPG is currently in development for Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and Windows PC via Steam®, and will be available in Europe on 29th September 2023.
Throughout the Fate franchise, pairs of Masters and heroic spirits – also known as Servants – have been fighting across history in a series of Holy Grail Wars, with the winning duo receiving an ancient artifact that grants wishes. Fate/Samurai Remnant continues the series’ epic Holy Grail War in the fourth year of the Keian Era, Edo Period Japan. It has been several decades since the end of a turbulent, blood-soaked era, and while the people are finally enjoying peace and tranquility, a battle between seven pairs of Masters and their Servants is about to begin as the “Waxing Moon Ritual” unfolds in the shadows. This is where the game’s hero, Miyamoto Iori, a young man in Asakusa, finds himself caught in the violence alongside his Servant Saber as they fight to be the last pair remaining in order to receive the granter of wishes, the “Waxing Moon Vessel”.
In Fate/Samurai Remnant, players control Miyamoto Iori, a Master who studied the Niten Ichiryu style of swordsmanship. He fights alongside Saber, a Servant who possesses strength beyond that of humans. When facing enemies beyond human control, players will be able to instruct their Servant to attack with powerful magical techniques, or even take direct control of the Servant to attack the enemy swarm. Dynamic battle scenes between Servants help elevate the action to new heights and are must-see contests for fans of the series!
Throughout the game, players get the chance to explore the town of Edo, where row houses, samurai residences, and brothels stand side by side. Here, many people frequent the streets, and characters drawn with a distinct Japanese touch are brought to life. While following the story of the “Waxing Moon Ritual”, players will be able to interact with various characters and animals in town, explore a variety of areas, and take on a wide array of challenges as they fight for survival in the latest Holy Grail War!
