Type-Moon has announced a new game in the ever expanding Fate series, this time being a PSVR title. Fate/Grand Order VR is a bit less of a full-blown VR title and more an experience. Fate/Grand Order VR essentially has you interacting with the Servant Mashu Kyrielight as she tries to be a better Servant for her Master (which is you). This title will be available December 6 in Japan, and the best part is that Fate/Grand Order VR is free!
Type-Moon released a trailer for the PSVR title, thanks to Siliconera for the find:
Anyone that’s tried to unravel the Fate series mythos knows that it’s a bit difficult to figure out what’s going on… but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the games. The latest console game to hit the Americas was Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star. Check out our review:
For those that are not familiar with the Fate franchise, don’t feel too bad. The heavily anime-inspired series has primarily been chained to mobile platforms (PlayStation Portable and iOS), consisting of a couple fighting games, a dungeon crawler, and an RPG. To make matters even more confusing, at least in North America, the brand has released installments under four separate publishers. So when the game made the transition from fighting game to “horde hacker,” it seemed like par for the course, for a series that has been consistently attempting to reinvent itself with each installment.
The campaign of Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star revolves around a singular core character that is supported by one of 16 additional “servant” characters. It’s important to note that rhe term “servant” is actually the game’s term, not mine, because it actually ties directly into the narrative of the campaign.
Fate/Grand Order VR launches in Japan on December 6.
