Fate/Stay Night Heaven's Feel Delayed Yet Again Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic
There have been many "casualties" in the medium of anime as a result of the Corona Virus pandemic and it looks like the Fate/Stay series is the next in line as the third film in the trilogy of Fate/Stay Heaven's Feel has been delayed from its original release later this month. Ufotable, the animation studio responsible for the insanely popular anime series Demon Slayer, have been working on the Fate/Stay series for some time, so we're definitely crossing our fingers that fans will be able to see the film sooner rather than later!
The Fate/Stay Night series has been a popular one in the medium of anime, warranting a number of television series, feature length films, mobile games, and much more when it comes to this stylish world.
Fate/Stay Night shared the announcement of the Corona Virus inspired delay via their Official Twitter Account, letting fans know that they were disappointed that the film would not make its original date and that a new drop date was to be determined:
新型コロナウイルス感染拡大に伴う政府や各行政機関の発表を鑑み、『劇場版「Fate/stay night[HF]」第三章』の公開を延期致します。楽しみにお待ち頂いていた皆様には誠に申し訳ありません。今後の公開予定につきましては、決定し次第お知らせいたします。https://t.co/lM6QGkytMV pic.twitter.com/bRt6QxUaZH— Fate/stay night (@Fate_SN_Anime) April 8, 2020
The translation of the Tweet from the official Fate/Stay Night Account reads as follows:
"In light of the announcement by the government and various administrative agencies following the spread of the new coronavirus infection, we will postpone the release of "Theatrical Version" Fate / stay night [HF] "Chapter 3." We are very sorry for everyone who was looking forward to it. The release schedule will be announced once decided."
Fate/Stay Night Heaven's Feel Part III: Spring's Song has already been delayed prior to this event, with the film being pushed back from March to April.
