The official Twitter account for the upcoming action JRPG Fate/Samurai Remnant has revealed a new gameplay action. When players pet the various dogs and cats they’ll encounter throughout the title, their health will be recovered.
It’s neat to see functionality like this actually have a practical benefit rather than just being there for the sake of it. Of course, the health restoration will likely be minimal at best, but at least it’s something.
This game developed by Omega Force will depict a Grail War held in the Keian Era, Edo Period Japan, where participants comprising seven pairs of Masters and summoned Servants of figures from historical and mythological importance. A “Waxing Moon Ritual” is also being held in the city’s underbelly. Protagonist Miyamoto Iori, residing in Asaka, fights in this Grail War with his Servant Saber to achieve the “Waxing Moon Vessel.”
Miyamoto utilizes the Niten Ichiryu style of swordsmanship. In battle, players can direct Servants to perform certain maneuvers or take control of them directly. Further, players can explore Edo, made up of row houses, samurai residences, and brothels where NPC and animal interaction are possible. Moreover, there are unspecified challenges players can anticipate.
