As result of a collaboration with a Japanese MMORPG game entitled “Le Ciel Bleu“, or “Legend of Galasia”, as is known by the localized English title, Fate/Zero is arriving to the world of online chibi gaming.
While Fate/Zero is certainly a series which ascends in majesty, it’s difficult to be much excited for this at all – great indeed is it that Fate/Zero’s expanding its realm of domination, yet “Le Ciel Bleu” is known to be a mediocre MMO, and the event itself won’t satisfy any save for those who actually play this game, or are willing to take it up merely out of some obsession for the Fate series name.
No matter, our servants of Saber and Archer have made their way into this new world – like it or not. They come complete with chibi character designs, weapons, accessories, and a full text profile, having been completely standardized into typical RPG characters – doing quite well to deliver an amusing recreation of our valiant heroes, whilst as a more negative side-effect, harming the credibility and spirit of the characters.
This entertaining cute aspect is actually one which could be more distasteful if anything for most fans of Fate/Zero as it deviates greatly from the original concepts of our characters – representing them in a manner all too childish when compared to their serious stance within the anime.
In either case however, they’re included regardless – and aside from those more popular two aforementioned, other servants shall be offering their presence as well, alongside even some masters. The pair of Rider and Waver in particular deserving of recognition as they will boast Rider’s overly flashy signature method of transportation – the “Gordian Wheel”, a chariot of resonating lightning and thunder which any can easily recall from the anime, assuming they’ve seen it.
While not specific to Fate/Zero, this trailer of Le Ciel Bleu below gives those unfamiliar an idea of how it plays and what exactly it entitles – the controversial chibi characters, sexy nurses, moe, maids, and all:
