On Tuesday, August 29, Fate/Grand Order USA announced on its Facebook page that it had surpassed 1 million downloads in the United States and Canada. In celebration of the remarkable milestone, Sakata Kintoki, a 5-star Berserker class Servant, will be available for summoning starting August 31 midnight PDT.
Localization Producer of Fate/Grand Order (English) Albert Kao commented on the milestone and the upcoming release of Sakata Kintoki: “Since a gold record signifies one million records sold, we wanted to celebrate one million downloads with the Fate/Grand Order character who epitomizes gold. His favorite phrases are ‘gold’ and ‘golden.’ His favorite dog is the golden retriever. Who better to celebrate our golden milestone than Sakata Kintoki?”
In addition, additional servants will be featured each day during the summon period. A full listing is available below:
