The English version of Fate/Grand Order will see its next major story chapter land this week. Confirmed at Lasengle’s Anime NYC event for the game, the Fate/Grand Order Heian-kyo story chapter will go live on November 21, 2022. Formally titled Naraka Mandala, Heian-kyo Thunderous Flash, the chapter is numbered 5.5 in the main campaign, putting it between Lostbelt No.5 (Atlantis and Olympus) and the next Lostbelt. Lostbelt No. 6 hasn’t been revealed officially for the English, though it was added to the the Japanese version in mid-2021.
Check out an animated trailer for Fate/Grand Order Heian-kyo below.
Fate/Grand Order Heian-kyo returns the Masters of Chaldea to the Heian period of Japanese history to investigate an unusual Singularity. Heian-kyo is an old name for the city of Kyoto, which served as Japan’s capital for almost a thousand years. The Heian period was the time of legendary figures like Minamoto no Raikou, Sakata Kintoki, and Watanabe no Tsuna. The story also serves as a follow-up of sorts to the Shimousa Pseudo-Singularity from the FGO Epic of Remnant storyline.
Players who complete the Heian-kyo Singularity will unlock a new costume for Sakata Kintoki’s 5-Star Berserker form. The costume will change his appearance and voice lines.
Heian-kyo will also see Fate/Grand Order get some new Servants on its playable roster. Ashiya Douman will join the game as a 5-Star Alter Ego Servant. He was a major antagonist known as the Caster of Limbo, and opposed players through Shimousa and several Lostbelts. Alongside Sakata Kintoki, Watanabe no Tsuna was one of the “Four Heavenly Kings” under Minamoto no Raikou. He arrives on the same banner as a 4-Star Saber.

And here’s Watanabe no Tsuna’s Noble Phantasm.
Fate/Grand Order Heian-kyo goes live on November 21, 2022. The game is available on Android and iOS.
