More Fate/ anime is incoming in the form of TWO new Fate/Grand Order projects! Last January, Aniplex launched a poll asking fans what their favorite Fate/Grand Order game missions and what they would like to see made for the franchise.
The first story winner was “Dai Nana Tokuiten Zettai Majuu Sensen Babylonia” (“Order VII: The Absolute Frontline in the War Against the Demonic Beasts: Babylonia”). This arc will be adapted into Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Sensen Babylonia as a TV anime series.
CloverWorks (Persona 5 the Animation / DARLING in the FRANXX) is producing the series, with Toshifumi Akai (DARLING in the FRANXX co-director) directing.
Babylonia takes place in Mesopotamia as humanity starts to part ways with the gods. A prophecy foretells that ruin will consume Uruk, leading to a great war.
The second story winner was “Dai Roku Tokuiten Shinsei Entaku Ryouiki: Camelot” (“Order VI: The Sacred Round Table Realm: Camelot”). This arc will be adapted into a two-part anime film, Fate/Grand Order Shinsei Entaku Ryouiki Camelot: Wandering: Agateram and Fate/Grand Order Shinsei Entaku Ryouiki Camelot: Paladin: Agateram.
Production I.G. is producing the films, with music composers Keita Haga (Fate/stay night) and Hideyuki Fukasawa (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works) being the only confirmed staff members.
Camelot is set during the Ninth Crusade, which is believed to be the final major medieval Crusade. Prince Edward sailed to Acre to assist the Count of Tripoli against the Mamluk.
The Babylonia anime series will air in 2019 and the Camelot films don’t have a release window yet.
