The Masters of Chaldea might still be deep into the ongoing rerun of the Fate/Grand Order Halloween 2019 event, but already Aniplex has teased what’s coming next: The Fate/Grand Order Halloween 2020 event. Titled “The Land of Mystique, Oniland! The Great Oni and the Kamuy’s Gold,” the event blends amusement parks, Japanese Oni demons, and the mythology of the Ainu peoples of Hokkaido.
The theme-park-themed getaway comes courtesy of none other than the drunkard monarch of Onigashima, Shuten-Douji, who changed her class from 5-Star Assassin to 4-Star Caster for the occasion. Shuten will also be gifted to players for free as thanks for participating, in addition to any other rewards they earn from the event itself.
As amusement parks can be just a step from heaven for many children, the new Fate/Grand Order Halloween event will also allow players to capitalize on the innocence and enthusiasm of kids. While playing the event, having one or more of the game’s most childlike Servants in one’s party can give a boost to the points earned from battles.
Examples of child-like Servants include Jack the Ripper, Nursery Rhyme, Medea Lily, Hans Christian Andersen, and Ilyasviel von Einzbern. It’s worth noting that a number of freely awarded Servants are also considered childlike, including Chloe von Einzbern, Paul Bunyan, Jeanne d’Arc Alter Santa Lily, and Chacha. Players who’ve been through other FGO events over the last few years can take advantage of their rosters to maximize their gains.
Aniplex has not stated an exact start date for the event, outside of “Mid-October,” but did point out that completion of the Lostbelt 2 story chapter is required for participation in the event. To help players catch up in time, a promo event is ongoing, halving the amount of stamina needed to play main story chapters.
Fate/Grand Order is immediately available on iOS and Android. The Halloween 2020 event will begin in mid-October. The Halloween 2019 rerun will last until October 13, 2020.
