Get on a Fast Boat to China in Fate/Grand Order Lostbelt No.3

Fate Grand Order Lostbelt No.3

Fate/Grand Order Lostbelt No.3, the latest chapter in the hit mobile RPG, will be releasing on November 26th, 2020, according to a news post and special promo site opened by Aniplex. The announcement comes right on the heels of the unveiling of a prologue chapter to the story, whose formal title is “The Synchronized Intellect Nation, SIN ~The Crimson Beauty under the Moon~. ”

Check out a trailer for Fate/Grand Order Lostbelt No.3, this time with English subtitles. (Beware of potential spoilers!)

Fate/Grand Order Lostbelt No.3 takes place in the Chinese Lostbelt, an area of the world overwritten by a parallel history managed by the Crypters, the antagonists of the story arc. The players and Chaldea are on their way there, after Chaldea Director Goredolf was poisoned in an assassination attempt. The cure apparently lies in this alt-universe China, where all conflict has been ended and the people know no hardship. There they’ll encounter Servants from across Chinese myth and history, as well as come into conflict with the Lostbelt’s Crypter: The bookish Hinako Akuta.

In keeping with tradition, the debut of Fate/Grand Order Lostbelt No.3 brings with it a new slate of playable Servants to interact with and possibly roll for. The headline Servants for SIN are Xiang Yu, the Prince of Lan Ling, and Qin Liangyu.

Xiang Yu is a 5-Star Berserker with a centaur-like carriage. He is based on a 3rd-century warlord who rebelled against the Qin dynasty in its waning days, and according to legend personally killed hundreds of Qin soldiers in battle. Here’s his Noble Phantasm:

The Prince of Lan Ling is a 4-Star Saber and based on Gao Changgong, the 6th-century ruler of Lan Ling during the Northern Qi dynasty. It was said that he was so beautiful that he wore a mask in battle to avoid distracting his own troops. Here’s his Noble Phantasm:

Qin Liangyu is a 4-Star Lancer and is based on one of the first female generals recorded in Chinese history. Her story, one of martial upbringing that led to military distinction in a time of chaos, holds similarities that of a better-known Japanese figure, Tomoe Gozen. It also happens that Tomoe Gozen is also present in Fate/Grand Order.

Here’s Qin Liangyu’s Noble Phantasm:

Those interested in rolling for SIN’s Servants should be advised to hold a portion of their savings back. Without spoiling too much more, a second premium summon banner will be available later, with a new selection of playable Servants to target.

Fate/Grand Order Lostbelt No.3 goes live on November 26, 2020 at 12am PT/3am ET. The game is immediately available on iOS and Android devices.
