The cast members of Fate Stay Night are hardened warriors capable of doling out a lot of hurt. What happens when they're shrunken down into chibi-sized renditions of themselves? One obvious result is they're a lot smaller. However, their heads remain fairly big when compared to their shrunken bodies. One thing won't change however - the newly minted munchkins still dole out the hurt.

Gamers who enjoyed last year's Fate/Tiger Colosseum will find more of the same fighting action in this sequel. The basic gist pits two to four fighters on a stage and the goal is to knock the opponent(s) out and garner a higher hit ranking than the others. Special power-ups (Tiger Ball with stripes, swords, etc) may be collected for extra fighting oomph so that the fighters can bolster their offensive repertoire. When roaming the battlefield against three COM-controlled combatants, the tie-ups are usually 1-on-1 even though there are four fighters on screen. It's just easier to fight one opponent at a time although breaking in on a 1-on-1 smackfest is possible.

In addition to the 3D fighting action, Capcom includes an Extra Mode which contains character data, event scenes, BGM, and illustrations to check out. Everything's locked upon starting the game however and you'll have to work and play to get that data viewable. For players who need some practice mashing buttons, the Tiger Dojo mode gives pointers and tips on handling opponents.

NCS Game Notes
» On the title screen, the Tiger Grail may be seen floating above planet Earth.

» The Story Mode (first option in the main menu) features 7 characters at the outset of the game and their respective dramas. An additional 6 characters in the character roster are in silhouette and not playable yet. Voice acting accompanies the conversations in the Story Mode. If you play the Saber Lion story, you'll notice that she doesn't speak. She makes noises, growls, and yelps loudly to accompany her written dialogue.

» Free Battle (second option in the main menu) allows players to change the parameters and time limit of each battle to suit one's preferences. The Free Battle features a 4-fighter rumble.

» The Tiger Dojo option (fourth option in the main menu) is a tutorial which teaches players to learn the ways of Colosseum battling and button commands. A narrator announces the tactics that may be used and demonstrates the button commands for slashing, jumping, combo-attacking, blocking, and using magic. The demo battle is between Saber and Archer.

» The Extra Mode Menu (fifth option in the main menu) includes an Image Viewer, Event Viewer, Character Viewer, Sound Player for SE and BGM, a Scenario Player, and a Movie Player. All of the selections under each section are locked at the outset of the game.
