Back in 2017 Japanese developer, Type-Moon released Fate/Grand Order VR feat. Mash Kyrielight exclusively for PlayStation VR, solely for its home market for free. Today, Type-Moon in conjunction with Aniplex and DelightWorks have announced a western launch will now take place in February.
The synopsis for the title explains that: “Fate/Grand Order VR feat. Mash Kyrielight is a VR drama based on the popular mobile RPG Fate/Grand Order. Players take on the role of a Master, and have a chance to spend some one-on-one time with Mash, who has come to their room seeking advice. What does she want to talk about? Does it have something to do with this new training regimen? Things will be a little different from the usual Fate/Grand Order story!”
At the heart of the title is heroine Mash. A human who fused with a Servant to become a Demi-Servant, she is described as a kindhearted girl with an air of mystery she always refers to the player as “Senpai.” Also in the experience is Saber-class Servant Altria Pendragon, which Aniplex reveals is: “The legendary King Arthur of Britain, summoned as a Servant. Before being known as King Arthur, she was simply called Altria. Having spent her life pretending to be a man, she is unused to favours from the opposite sex.”
Originally, Aniplex released Fate/Grand Order during the summer of 2015 in Japan on mobile devices. Since then it has accrued more than 13 million downloads. Fate/Grand Order then saw a western release across North America on 25th June 2017 and has now surpassed 5 million downloads since its launch. To celebrate this milestone Fate/Grand Order has embarked on a “5 Million Downloads Campaign” featuring an array of gifts and rewards for players beginning 30th January 2019.
Rewards will include daily log-in bonuses, increased success rates for Servant and Craft Essence enhancements, and the return of the acquisition quest of the Royal Brand Mystic Code. Additionally, a special Fate/Grand Order U.S.A. Tour 2019 will be taking place this year.
Fate/Grand Order VR feat. Mash Kyrielight will be available via the PlayStation Store for free on 26th February 2019. VRFocus will continue its coverage of the title, reporting back with any further updates.
