Today, KOEI TECMO Europe and developer Omega Force, in collaboration with TYPE-MOON and Aniplex Inc, are proud to unveil a new trailer for their upcoming action RPG, Fate/Samurai Remnant. In this new video, players will discover the various activities they can do in Edo and also get a glimpse of the depth of the story of this new episode in the Fate series to the rhythm of the main theme, “Zanya Gensou feat. LICCA / Spiral Radder’. Fate/Samurai Remnant is currently in development and will be available on 29 September 2023 on PS4/5, Nintendo Switch and PC Steam

Throughout the Fate series, duos of Master and Heroic Spirits, also known as Servants, have battled it out throughout history in a series of Holy Grail Wars, with the key being an ancient artefact capable of granting wishes. Fate/Samurai Remnant continues the Holy Grail Wars in Edo period Japan as players take on the role of a young samurai named Miyamoto Iori, accompanied by his Servant Saber. A battle between seven pairs of Masters and Servants is about to begin as the Waxing Moon Ritual takes place in the shadows

Playing as Iori, players will be able to explore the city of Edo and carry out a wide range of activities, such as strolling the streets in the company of various Servants, shopping in the mysterious Babyloni-ya boutique or visiting famous landmarks around the city. Accompanied by Saber, who is particularly enthusiastic about discovering life in Edo, Iori can complete various side quests to earn money and various materials. He will also be called upon to referee battles that break out here and there. Players will also be able to visit Iori’s house, where they can play mini-games and upgrade their equipment

As Edo is made up of many districts, players will be able to move from one to another using the map, which will show them where to go to progress in the story of Waxing Moon Ritual. Saber will also point out places of interest. Some Rogue Servants will offer sub-quests called ‘Digressions’. As they progress through these sub-quests, players will forge links with the Rogue Servants accompanying Iori

As a participant in the Waxing Moon Ritual, Iori will have to prepare to face powerful adversaries in terrible battles with the help of Saber and the other Rogue Servants. To give themselves the best chance of success, players will be able to upgrade Iori’s skill tree, as well as those of Saber and the other Rogue Servants, unlocking a variety of skills and abilities that can be equipped. As a samurai, Iori will also be able to use various materials to strengthen his katanas and thus his skills

As players explore the city of Edo and progress through the story, they will strengthen the bond between Iori and Saber, represented by the Memento Ring. By filling this gauge, players will be able to increase their chances of using Link Strikes in battle or unlock new skills on Saber’s tree

In Fate/Samurai Remnant battles, players will have three different gauges to keep an eye on if they want to overcome even the most formidable opponents: the Affinity Gauge, the Substitution Gauge and the Hidden Sword Gauge. The first gauge tells players when they can use Affinity Techniques and order their Servant to perform a specific attack. This gauge fills up during combat when Iori performs attacks, but can also fill up during exploration when players perform various activities such as interacting with Saber’s points of interest

By using the second gauge, the Substitution Gauge, players can temporarily and directly take control of the Servant accompanying Iori. Finally, the last gauge tells players when they can unleash a special attack with Iori, an attack that will depend on the number of swords used in combat

To coincide with Tokyo Game Show 2023, a livestream will be broadcast from 3pm on 21 September 2023. Live from kOEI TECMO Japan’s YouTube channelthis livestream will not only reveal new information about the game, but will also highlight gameplay via as yet undisclosed characters. Special guests include Kengo Kawanishi (Iori Miyamoto), Hibiku Yamamura (Saber) and Tomoaki Maeno (Zheng Chenggong).
