The game itself is based on the popular visual novel and anime adaptation by TYPE-MOON and is a part of a larger collection of multimedia projects that revolve around the expansive Fate series universe. The game will be the main highlight at the Fate/Grand Order Anime Expo event, alongside additional material for fans of the Fate series.
