Yes folks, we’re having yet another Fate anime this summer, and this time, it’s by A-1 Pictures. A-1 Pictures animates this new anime, and they will be basing it on Yuichiro Higashide’s Fate/Apocrypha novels. It offers a different take at the Holy Grail War, as it features two factions of masters and servants battling one another. Now, before it finally airs in July, they’ve released a brand new TVCM, which they call “Opening of the Holy Grail War”.

The video also features the anime’s opening theme song “Eiyuu Unmei no Uta” by EGOIST. This would be the third CM for the anim, as they previously revealed two videos earlier. Here is the 2nd PV, as well as the 2nd CM:
