Saber Musashi Joins “Fate/Grand Order” For New Year’s Event


The Fate/Grand Order smartphone RPG is gearing up for the kick-off of Epic of Remnant, a 1.5 bridge to part two of its story. In the meantime, it’s gotten in a bit of New Year’s celebration that included the introduction of a new gender-swapped servant with legendary Japanese sword-genius Miyamoto Musashi. 

 

 

 Epic of Remnant is described:

The character that narrates the Trailer PV of Epic of Remnant gives that the story is to take place following the failure of Retrogression Canal・Genesis Light-Year (逆行運河・創世光年, Gyakkou-Unga・Sousei-Kounen) (also the name of the Arc Drive used by Aozaki Aoko in Melty Blood) — “a bit of detective-work” that serves as a prelude to the 2nd Project. The coming conflict will be premised upon something that Chaldea critically overlooked in their efforts to preserve the Common Sense of Man — “the beloved legacy of the King of Magecraft.”
