Fate/unlimited Codes Available Today on PSN

John Diamonon's Avatar Posted by Product Marketing Manager, Capcom

What’s good PlayStation faithful? It’s me again, the person PSB server techs love to hate.

It’s my pleasure to announce that Fate/unlimited codes will be available today, exclusively on the PlayStation Store for your PSP! This deep and insanely fun fighting game is developed by Eighting, the team responsible for the Bloody Roar series and Tatsunoko Vs Capcom.

Oh, by the way, if I’m slow to respond to your questions or comments today, it’s because I’m in Seattle for PAX. If you see me at the show, perform a PlayStation Home dance and say, “Hey John D, it must be Fate!”, I’ll hook you up with some free Fate shwag! It’s the least I can do for making you perform the Cabbage Patch in this day and age.

Anyway, here’s a cool video that one of our summer interns, Arya, created to give you a quick preview of the game. (Hey Arya, don’t let school work get in the way of your partying, ok?) Check out Capcom-Unity for more of his strategy videos.

Also, Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, the producer of the game, has this to say:

Hi there PlayStation fans. I’d like to share with you an overview of the different modes you’ll see in Fate/unlimited codes. There are a total of eight modes that are available, giving you a variety of gameplay experiences.

Arcade Mode: This mode pits you against the CPU controlled opponents as you advance through the story as the character you’ve selected. Each of the selectable characters has their own storyline. Play through them all and see how each character is connected in the Fate universe.

VS-CPU Mode: Battle against a CPU character of your choice. Different characters can be selected after each battle.

Spectate Mode: Watch a duel between any two CPU characters. This is a good way to observe the tendencies of each fighter.

VS-2P Mode: Battle another player in local ad hoc matches.

Survival Mode: This mode challenges you to battle against a constant stream of opponents until your life bar is depleted.

Additionally, there is the Tutorial Mode which can be absolutely useful for both beginners and skilled players. In this mode, you learn how to execute each character’s move set. Standard and Expert settings are available to learn different levels of gameplay techniques, from basic moves to high level combos.

The Practice Mode will help you improve your skills by allowing you to configure the CPU settings such as conditions and reactions. In addition, on-screen controller/button prompts will assist you to study combos while allowing you to record and replay the inputs.

Last but not least, there’s the Mission Mode. This mode sends you on special missions, consisting of battles bound by particular conditions. Each character has a unique set of missions. New missions are unlocked for each mission cleared. The goal for each mission varies from accomplishing a set combo to defeating the opponent with a certain move. There are over 250 missions in total! This is a great way to increase your technical fighting skills. I highly recommend you try this out. Moreover, there are surprising extra missions provided for each character, such as a side-scrolling shooting game and other non-VS fighting style games.

The development staff members at Eighting not only have a deep passion for fighting games but are also top class, tournament fighting gamers themselves. The Capcom QA team also has first class gamers who are ranked at national fighting competitions in Japan. We have tapped into their vast fighting knowledge and experience to tune and balance Fate, and we’re definitely happy with how this game turned out. I can tell you with confidence that we have created a special fighting game that appeals to both the casual fighting fan and the expert tournament player. I hope you try it out today. Thank you so much for your time!

Kazuhiro Tsuchiya (CAPCOM)

Void_Wizard said:

DonnyG said:

Your the man John.

MadmanEU said:

September 3rd, 10:49 am

Is it common practice to outsource serious work to interns? This might explain the serious lack of quality from Capcom as of late.

    John Diamonon said:

    September 3rd, 11:02 am

    Oh Madman. What do you have against interns? Maybe one day, you can intern for us. I\’ll let you do cool stuff for me if you\’re even half as talented as Arya? Agreed?

    :)

    You know I love ya man!

TripG said:

The game looks promising, but is it really appropriate for someone who is not the best at fighting games, i.e., much more causual player instead of hardcore. Or is the game’s difficulty level so over-the-top that if you dont learn every single move a character can do you will always die.

MadmanEU said:

September 3rd, 10:50 am

On another not-hating-Capcom note, when are we going to get deets on Capcom’s next big thing…so far there’s Lost Planet 2…and…and…oh, right. Nada.

Anubis80 said:

You guys realize that Soul Calibur Broken Destiny just came out right lol (another title that should have had a PSN release today).

Gorvi said:

September 3rd, 11:01 am

Wow, that looks much better than I was expecting. I may have to check that out once Dissidia is done whooping my ass.

DryvBy said:

September 3rd, 11:02 am

When are you going to give me my code? :D

DDark said:

September 3rd, 11:05 am

Looks really cool, will definately download it. Any idea if the Bleach series will make it to the US? That’s another really good PSP 3D fighting game franchise that I’m sure alot of people over here would love to play.

Voozi said:

September 3rd, 11:06 am

I’ve been neglecting facebook lol (you’ve been neglecting the psn so we’re even haha)

Kyolux said:

September 3rd, 11:48 am

So how much will the game cost?

Also, is the mission mode the story mode? I heard a while ago they were translating the novel part of the game. Was that scratched?

Hello John D,

Fate/Unlimited Codes wasn’t released in Australia today :(

I asked the EU Brand Manager why the game hadn’t been released in Australia yesterday, but so far no response.

Any chance you can shed some light on the reason for me please?

Thanks for your time.

Regards,

Dutch

DiamondAxel said:

September 3rd, 3:03 pm

Is it really supposed to be available today? September 3rd’s 3/4 of the way through and it still isn’t in the PSN Store yet.

POLYERGOS said:

September 3rd, 3:09 pm

Hey Sekoku

I was just kidding.

InfiniteNine said:

September 3rd, 3:11 pm

Any word on a UMD or PS2 version release? I’d much rather play it on the PS2 if possible or at least settle for a physical copy for the PSP. I’ll probably end up importing the JP version when I get a PSP anyways.
