Composer Yuki Kajiura ("Puella Magi Madoka Magica," "Sword Art Online") will provide the soundtrack for the film, and director Tomonori Sudo ("the Garden of sinners -recalled out summer-") returns to the Fate series to craft the events of the visual novel into the complete cinematic experience. Celebrated animation studio ufotable ("Fate/Zero," "Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works]," "the Garden of sinners") returns to animate TYPE-MOON's work, promising all of the dynamic action of the previous installations.
