Taneda Risa (voice of Shielder), Shimazaki Nobunaga (Arjuna), Kawasumi Ayako (Arturia), and writer/personality Mafia Kajita have gathered for a webcast introducing the next big Fate/Grand Order collaboration. The smartphone game is teaming with prequel light novel turned anime/manga series Fate/Zero for "Fate/Accel Zero Order."

 

Ufotable, the studio behind the Zero anime, were back for a new promo introducing Grand Order folks like Matthew "Shielder" Kyrielite,  Darius III Berserker Zhuge Liang (Lord El-Melloi II) Caster to Zero folks like Waver-Kun, Lord El-Melloi, and the anticipated adult Alexander Rider.

 

 

 Nasu: The Fate/Zero event will be fun, of course! Actually, during the planning phase a year ago, there was a character that we were writing as a surprise for players, and when I asked (Gen) Urobuchi to write a story with that character as protagonist, he gladly accepted it. But during the plotting stage, even though I said, “Write something with a happy ending for once,” first he asked me, “Can’t I have this character kill this other character and end it there?” and he gave me a plot that was even darker than Fate/Zero.[laughs] I said, “What kind of festival do you think we’re making here?! Gen, you should believe more in dreams, aspirations, and the bonds between people!” and had him revise the whole thing. Urobuchi also plays FGO, so the meeting was pretty simple. It went like, “Urobuchi, I want you to write a Fate/Zero collab event for FGO. Actually, just do it.” “Understood. I’ll burn through it with my 3☆ party. Though I did Kintarou [5] during the New Year.” There was absolutely no need to explain the system, so it was all just “I’ll leave it to you!”
