Theme park style layout will offer challenges, mini-games, meet-and-greets, and more
This year's FGO Fes promises to be the happiest place on Earth for Fate fans thanks to its "Chaldea Park" theme.
Newly announced details on the August event have unveiled multiple "lands" within the venue, taking attendees through a multifaceted experience. Tournaments, challenges, mini-games, and shopping will all be on the schedule.
Chaldea Palace is home to "a certain Servant," and will feature a variety of materials and art on display. There will also be a room with a special binaural recording from the Servant's voice actor, so visitors can spend some quality time with them.
Luluhawa Island offers a full vacation experience. Attendees enter via an "airport," visit the hotel lobby from the "Servant Summer Fest" game event, and check out scenery from around the locale. The inflatable slide based on Ivan the Terrible's Noble Phantasm will be making a return, this time with summer decoration.
Masters who want to test their skills can step into the Battle Arena. There will be booths for both Fate/Grand Order Arcade and Fate/Grand Order Duel, open to both skilled battlers and new players. In-game challenges will be available to try, and a central stage will feature the final rounds of the weekend's tournaments, as well as cosplay events.
Last but not least is Halloween Town, featuring challenges and carnival games themed to everyone's favorite dragon idol, Elisabeth Bathory. Test your skills at Pumpkin Drop, Servant Hide-and-Seek, or a shooting gallery.
There will alos be major events on the Grand Castle Stage, tasty treats in the Chaldea Kitchen, and shopping and exploring to do in the Chaldea Market and Fate Project Bazaar.
Fate/Grand Order Fes 2019 -Chaldea Park- takes place August 3-4 at Makuhari Messe.
