Today marks 15 years since visual novel Fate/stay night was first released by TYPE-MOON. A decade and a half later, the Fate franchise has anime, games, films, manga, stage plays, a hit mobile game, and more to its name. And to celebrate, creator Kinoko Nasu is kicking off a special 15th anniversary project!
At the core of the project is Fate-15th.com, a website that will keep fans updated on events throughout the year. The site also displays autographs, art, and commentary by other creators in the industry—including a piece by Sword Art Online creator Reki Kawahara:
There's also commentary from Persona director Katsura Hashino, Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki, and many members of ufotable.
Additionally, the Sony Music Roppongi Museum will be hosting a Fate/stay night exhibit this winter. Visitors will be able to see production materials and other goods from over the years. Specific dates, times, and exhibitions will be revealed at a later date.
On February 17, fans can stop by Animate, Gamers, and other participating hobby shops to pick up a special anniversary card. The front features Saber and Excalibur as seen in the 15th anniversary key art, with messages and art from member of production on the back.
