New Destiny series teases franchise's most epic battle

Fate is never short of fights, but the Fate/strange Fake trailer teases an epic conflict between Enkidu and Gilgamesh that might be for the best.

The Fate franchise has had no shortage of epic battles across its various movies, shows, and games, but the trailer for the latest entry in the series promises this is the most epic yet. Destiny is a franchise largely focused on events known as the Holy Grail Wars, which involve mages using resurrected spirits of famous heroes and villains from history to fight each other. One of the most popular of these servants was Gilgamesh, the king of ancient Babylon who starred in a titular epic. Part of what makes the new anime Fate/strange Fake so exciting is the interesting way it promises to further use and develop his character.

This is part of the reason the Fate/strange Fake trailer (posted to Youtube) is so cool. At the end of the trailer, Gilgamesh and his old partner Enkidu come face to face, each unleashing the full power of their Noble Phantasm, a special ability each Servant possesses. Anticipation for the epic battle was on everyone's face, with Enkidu expressing their gratitude for being able to face Gilgamesh again, while Gilgamesh monologues about the origin of his Noble Phantasm. creation of the world its name. They rally their forces against each other in beautifully animated footage, with Enkidu harnessing the power of creation and Gilgamesh bringing the power of destruction, ending the trailer with their shared names of Enuma Elish Noble Phantasms uttered in unison.

Even for fans who don't know the long history of Enkidu and Gilgamesh, this is an incredibly epic moment, but for fans who do, this scene is even better. Enkidu and Gilgamesh were very close companions in ancient times. Then, in Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front Babylonia, Tiamat and the Alliance of the Three Goddesses create and use a fake Enkidu called the Kingu to wipe out humanity and replace it with artificial creatures. This brings Gilgamesh and Jingu into conflict, but the conflict is not as intense as it was when Kingu was the real Enkidu. Fate/strange Fake finally promises the fight fans have been waiting for since Babylon.

Gilgamesh vs Enkidu Looks Like Fate's Best Fight Yet

However, even for fans who don't know much about Fate, this scene is still shocking. Attack on Titan composer Hiroyuki Sawano, who also worked on the series, elevates the game with his epic new soundtrack. This scene is wonderfully tense. Plus, A-1 Pictures' beautiful animations give the fight an otherworldly quality unlike any Fate fight before it. If this level of production quality carries over to the rest of the show, then this might not be the only epic fight fans have to look forward to.

The rest of the trailer is incredible as well, teasing the various other servants who will take part in the Holy Grail War and teasing the return of beloved characters like Waver Velvet. The whole thing is reminiscent of Fate/Zero, widely regarded as the best entry in the Fate series. However, if Fate/strange Fake lives up to the promise of the preview, it's likely that this new series will earn that title.
