Special guests include Kengo Kawanishi (Iori Miyamoto), Hibiku Yamamura (Saber) and Tomoaki Maeno (Zheng Chenggong). You will be able to watch the livestream on KOEI TECMO Japan’s YouTube channel. An English interpretation stream will also be available on official Tokyo Game Show channels.

You can check out more details on the game below.

Playing as Iori, players will explore the town of Edo and experience a variety of activities, such as wandering the streets in the company of various Servants, shopping at the mysterious store “Babyloni-ya”, or visiting famous places scattered throughout Edo. Accompanied by Saber, who is particularly keen to discover life in Edo, Iori will be able to complete a variety of side quests to earn money and much-needed materials. He will even be called upon to arbitrate fights!

As Edo is divided into several districts, players can move from one to another using the world map, which will show them where to go to progress through the story of the Waxing Moon Ritual. Saber will also mark places of interest on the map. Some Rogue Servants may suggest sub-quests called “Digressions”. As they progress through the different Digressions, players will bond with Rogue Servants who will accompany Iori.

By taking part in the Ritual, Iori will have to prepare himself to face powerful opponents in fearsome battles with the help of Saber and other Rogue Servants. To maximize their chances, players can upgrade not only Iori’s skill tree, but also those of Saber and other Rogue Servants, unlocking various skills and abilities that they can equip. In addition to his skill tree, Iori can use materials with his sword mountings to strengthen its abilities and replace the skills attached to it. Players will also be able to fill in Saber’s “Memento Ring” as they strengthen the bond between Servant and Master by exploring the town of Edo and progressing through the story. Once they reach a certain level on the “Memento Ring”, players can increase their chances of using Link Strikes in battle or unlock new skills in Saber’s tree.

In Fate/Samurai Remnant’s combat, players have three different gauges to watch out for if they want to triumph over even the most formidable opponents: the “Affinity Gauge”, the “Substitution Gauge”, and the “Hidden Sword Gauge”. The first gauge is required to use the powerful “Affinity Technique” action and order their Servant to perform a specific attack. This gauge fills up during combat in response to Iori’s attacks, but can also fill up during exploration when players carry out various activities such as interacting with Saber’s points of interest. By consuming the second gauge, the “Substitution Gauge”, players can temporarily and directly control the Servant accompanying Iori. Finally, the last gauge tells players when they can unleash Iori’s special technique, which changes according to the number of swords used in combat.

A plethora of new screenshots can also be seen below.

Fate/Samurai Remnant launches on September 29, 2023 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. For more information you can look at the game’s official website and Twitter (X) page.
