Here’s some news that should please people who own a Vita and are fluent in Japanese. Fate/stay night, one of the biggest and most well known visual novels, is headed to the Vita. Granted, it’s just a port of the PS2 release Fate/stay night Realta Nua, but it’s still cause for celebration. I mean, it’s supposed to be a fantastic game.
Fate/stay night Realta Nua is about a two week competition for Masters and their spirit-like Servants to try and acquire the Holy Grail so they can make a wish come true. This is done via a series a massive battles, where the magi Masters have their servants fight one another until only one is left standing. The hero of the tale is Shirou, who unintentionally gets pulled into the Holy Grail War and ends up becoming the Master of Saber. Aside from trying to win the war, players can also help Shirou find love with one of three heroines.
As for changes, there aren’t very many. Touch controls are being added, of course. There will also be a new theme song and opening animation. The biggest change is the inclusion of a free download of Tobidase! Trouble Hanafude Douchuuki 2, a Fate/stay-themed Hanafuda card PSP game.
If you’re concerned about adult content, since Fate/stay night was originally an adult visual novel, you shouldn’t be. The PS2 and forthcoming Vita versions of Fate/stay night Realta Nua are both the censored versions for gamers ages 15 and up. There will be no sexual content so you’ll be able to just enjoy the really awesome story.
Since the Vita is region-free, you can go ahead and either import the Fate/stay night Realta Nua cartridge or download the game when it’s released on November 29, 2012.
