Madman Anime Group, together with Aniplex announced that the English version of mobile game Fate/Grand Order officially launches today in Australia. Starting from approximately 5pm (AEST), players will be able to download the game from the iOS App and Google Play stores.
The free-to-play RPG – previously only available in Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Korea, United States and Canada – has enjoyed phenomenal success throughout 2017. To date Fate/Grand Order has been downloaded more than 30 million times and has consistently topped iOS and Android charts.
One of the most successful mobile role-playing games ever in Japan, Fate/Grand Order is part of the expansive Fate universe by TYPE-MOON, which originated from the Fate/Stay Night visual novel game and has since cultivated numerous, popular animation series. The mobile game takes players back through history to embark on an epic quest known as the Grand Order, and tasks them with summoning powerful allies or Heroic Spirits based on historical or legendary figures, such as King Arthur, Hercules, and Joan of Arc. Fate/Grand Order’s exciting storyline and compelling gameplay loop keeps fans engaged and wanting more.
“Players enjoy being a part of the story of Fate/Grand Order,” said Atsuhiro Iwakami Producer of Fate/Grand Order and President of Aniplex Inc. “Unlike many other popular mobile games, we have the Fate universe to draw upon. It provides a captivating narrative for fans to become a part of, and keeps them playing.”
“Fate/Grand Order is a tactical, turn based RPG which features several chapters that take the players to a different notable point in human history. Together with different seasonal events, players will be put to the test with challenging missions and quests,” said Yosuke Shiokawa, Creative Producer of DELiGHTWORKS Inc., the developer of Fate/Grand Order. “One of the greatest appeals of Fate/Grand Order is that it is easy to learn, but hard to master. The game requires both in-depth strategy and skill to advance the player through ever changing obstacles.”
Madman is the official marketing partner of Fate/Grand Order in Australia.
