Fate/Grand Order Arcade has been announced for Japan

Yesterday during the Fate/Grand Order Fes. 2017 anniversary celebration, the team of Type-Moon, Aniplex, and Delight Works have announced that they have teamed up with Sega to develop Fate/Grand Order Arcade, which will be heading to Japanese arcade centers sometime in 2018.


But this won't be the same gacha-style mobile game fans have become so familiar with. Instead, it will be a "Heroic Spirit Summoner" team-based action game based on the license, which sounds similar to Dissidia Final Fantasy or Lord of Arcana based on description alone.

Since it was released in 2015, Fate/Grand Order has been downloaded more than 9 million times, making it a huge money maker for original publishers Sony as it was reportedly as big as Pokemon Go was in Japan.

It was eventually released in the United States and Canada on June 25 where it racked up 100,000 downloads in the first 12 hours of its release.
