Fate/Samurai Remnant

Developed by Omega Force in collaboration with Type-Moon and Aniplex, in this stylized action RPG for PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC, pairs of masters and spirits, also known as “Servants”, face a series of Holy Grail Wars , in which the winning duo receive an ancient artifact that grants wishes. 'Fate/Samurai Remnant' takes the fight to the fourth year of the Keian Era, in Japan during the Edo period and we control Miyamoto Iori, a master who studied the Niten Ichiryu swordsmanship style, who fights alongside Saber, a servant who possesses a strength superior to that of humans. When faced with enemies beyond your control, you can command your servant to attack with magical techniques or even take direct control of him to attack the enemy swarm.

Throughout the game you will also have the opportunity to explore the city of Edo, where terraced houses, samurai residences and brothels seem to coexist. Here many people frequent the streets and the theater is performed with secondary characters that come to life with a marked Japanese touch. Apparently, as you follow the story of the “Crescent Moon Ritual,” you will be able to interact with passersby and animals in the city, explore areas, and participate in challenges.

Free demo

The latest chapter of the 'Fate' series also has a demo on all the video game's target platforms.

In any case, the saved data from the demo can be carried over to the final version of the game.
