This is the first time Fate/Stay Night has ever come out in English so it’s kind of a big deal given how many anime of varying quality it has spawned not to mention multiple spinoff games. Guessing this will be towards the end of the year since the Tsukihime remake is up first.


Trailer here:

 
Pretty wild to think that it took so long for an official English release. I suspect this will be followed by a Hollow Ataraxia remaster/remake if/when it does well.
 
I own the Japanese version of the Vita game (came with the used Vita I bought). Will happily pick up an official English version.
 
I started with Fate/Zero which remains far and away my favorite in the series. Always wanted to check this out so I’m planning to pick it up.
 
FSN in English on Steam Deck this year.....

it's always a slight shock to my system when I remember this mega-franchise started out as an eroge visual novel

EDIT: also fun fact don't look at the Wikipedia page for eroge because It shows a straight-up sex scene
 
I just started with the series and games past October, actually olaying Extra, and was looking for a way to read the original novel. Great!
 
It's crazy how long it took for the first game in the series to actually get an English release.
Especially nowadays when tons of visual novels get translated into English every year. Heck even the eroge ones get localized, so even if F/SN had "stayed true to it's roots" with the sex scenes there really was nothing holding it back.
 
I didn't think we'd get an official localization unless type-moon remade it, which seems unlikely, so this is a very pleasant surprise to wake up to!

A part of me thought there was a chance this’d get a remaster for its anniversary, seeing it get that and an official translation floored me. I already read it a few years back, but I’m definitely thinking about going through it again now.

The funny part is people are already complaining "sex scenes are a important part of the original novel!" and you can know who hasn't at least seen them because they were terrible even by eroge standards lol
 
Good lord. Time for the Altria/Artoria discourse to hit full swing I suppose. It's Artoria, Altria is a mistranslation Nasu keeps insisting is actually canon.

Still, am pretty happy to see this. For anyone curious, its based on the Japanese Realta Nua rerelease for the Vita. The main changes from that version were backported to fantranslations of the PC version of the game if memory serves me right.

Heavens Feel straight up becomes worse without them because it's the one time that type of content fits in with the subject and themes of the route itself. The Realta Nua changes only make it worse, not helped by the fact it makes people think
Zouken is a Dead Apostle because it turns him and Shinji into vampires and they really aren't
.

In UBW and Fate I agree both are pointless.
 
I know absolutely nothing about this game or series and yet I found the trailer to be fascinating. Will be keeping an eye on this for sure.

Fate and the broader nasuverse is really fun schlock. Stay night is one of those "classic" VNs alongside other titles like Umineko, Steins;Gate and so on.

If you like myths, history, urban fantasy and a pretty liberal approach of looking at legends, you'll probably like Fate. If you're a heavy history/myth buff and are concerned about that you'll probably tear your hair out at all the inaccuracies.

Fate is basically the MCU but with history, anime and lots of genderbending.
 
kinda thought that would never happen at this point to be honest

maybe i'll finally get around to checking it out, it's been on my list of visual novels to play someday for years but that's a very slow moving list when you only play like 1-2 a year

I really enjoyed the UBW anime and the movies and I like visual novels so I’m excited to check this out! Hoping it gets a physical release on Switch
 
Wait so is this the porn one or not? Because if the latter, cowards
If it's derived from Realta Nua I wouldn't expect it to be the uncensored version.

I hadn't actually realised that FSN never received an official English version (probably just took the fan translations for granted in this sense), but great for people to experience the original and understand how Fate has become so enduring over the years.
 
Extremely funny they call this the root of the series while ignoring its actual conception
Believe me, you're not losing much outside of Heavens Feel, where it's somewhat well integrated. In Fate and UBW, the H-scenes amount to really awkward interludes that can (and have been in adaptations) swapped out with a fade to black.

The bigger issue with Realta Nua is that it made a couple of rewrites to the Heavens Feel route that mess heavily with the tone and themes the route is going for and turn the plot into a somewhat confusing mess.

However even in the case of Heavens Feel, the scenes have lower quality than stuff you can find on fanfiction sites so unless you want awkward comparisons to seafood (mollusks lmao), memorable lines for the wrong reasons and all characters involved losing their personality for a short while, you're really not missing out on much.

While I'd not call Realta Nua the perfect version of the game, the improvements it makes to the experience on the whole do make it the most sensible version to remaster. Besides, if you really want the original I'm pretty sure you can still buy it on Amazon.
