l_519c57e633d43Famitsu shared more details about the Fate stay/night spinoff game Prisma Illya. The Nintendo 3DS title from Kadokawa Games is based on Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya and the anime series currently airing in Japan. You play as Illyasviel von Einzbern (voiced by Mai Kadowaki) who suddenly becomes a magical girl.


Illya’s powers allow hero to use element cards during battles. The top screen shows the characters and attack animations. Players select which card to use from their deck using the system’s touch screen. By selecting cards, you can do various magical attacks.

You can see Miyu Edelfelt (voiced by Kaori Nazuka) in the screenshot with Illya. Famitsu explains Prisma Illya is an action adventure game and it’s slated for a summer release in Japan.

    This all sounds so… adorable.

    Which is slightly shocking given the fate universe…

    • And yet being in the Fate universe, we can probably expect something heartbreaking at the end of it.

      Technically it’s something like an alternate universe. The Prisma Illya story does not take place as part of the normal Fate continuity (and indeed it contradicts much of it).

      Though that doesn’t mean it’s all adorable stuff either. There are some pretty serious and dark moments in it. The manga is actually a really good read and I recommend it. It’s better than it has any right to be based on the concept…

    Not to nitpick too much but the anime isn’t airing yet.

      Nor is Miyu in any of the screens.

    Shoot, I was under the impression it was going to be a CCG/TCG ‘card game’. But who knows, maybe this (element-choosing card game?) will be import friendly!

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    Looks cute >.< (Haku's weakness!) I might look into an import of it :)

  • Makes me want a Lord of Vermilion game or even a new Baten Kaitos because cards.

    • Keima88

      Lord of Vermillion huh? The day that it comes over here is the day that I died because I was so happy I went straight to heaven.

    • GameTaco

      A Lost Kingdoms 3 would be fine, too. Let’s face it though, that’ll never happen. :/

  • Sergio BriceƱo

    So it’s essentially like the manga?

  • The anime is going to be a July release, why do I keep reading about it as “Currently airing”?

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Yeahhhh.^_^ This actually exceed my expectation.^_^ At first, i thought it is just going to be TCG game but with this, i can see this game plays closely like Chain of Memories.^_^
    Hope they will also include extra servant here.^_^ The fact that Mjolnir already showed up on the manga, imagine seeing other legendary heroes.^_^

  • Anna Scruton

    So. Much. WANT.
