Frequently Asked Questions

How do I install the game?

There's a bunch of options for you Android users:

Hard Method:
  • You can install this game from the Google Play Store but it requires a JP Google account for the JP version or US Google account
    for the US version. So if you live from Asia or Europe for example, you will need to make a new account through VPN.

Normal Method:
  • Install QooApp by going to to their website on your android device.
  • Open the app you installed and download Fate/Grand Order.
  • You'll need to login to your Google or Facebook account to use QooApp.
  • Just register a fake account if you don't want to use a real one.

Easy Method:
  • No Google or Facebook accounts needed!
  • Just go to APK Pure, download the APK installer and run it on your android device.
  • You need to re-download a new APK each time the game version updates.
  • You don't need to uninstall the previous version as the latest version will automatically update your existing game.
  • You can grab the latest version of the game from the links below:
APK Pure Downloads
JP Version Download APK
US Version Download APK

There's really no other alternatives than the AppStore for the iOS version.

Are proxies or VPN required for playing this game?

Nope! You'll need a Japanese Google account if you want to install it the "normal" way, but other ways than that? No!

Do I need to know Japanese to play this game?

Not really. The game is pretty easy to understand and some menus are even written in English, but knowledge of Katakana would be really helpful.

You'll need to know Japanese if you're playing for the story though.

    Just follow these 7 simple steps: (Click to enlarge)






    Your temporary Username (AKA: Transfer Code) and Password can only be used ONCE!!! This means that if you already used them on one of your devices, then the same Transfer Code can no longer be used. You need to generate a new code after every use.

    ※ It is highly recommended to generate a Transfer Code even if you're not gonna use them to avoid being locked out of your account when you lost your device or uninstall the game.

    What are Command Spells?

    Command Spells:
    • You can have a maximum of 3 Command Spells.
    • Once used, it regenerates by 1 everytime it hits 00:00 JST.
    • During battle, you can use 1 Command Spell to recover one Servant's HP to full.
    • During battle, you can use 1 Command Spell to fill one Servant's NP gauge to 100%.
    • Once your whole party is annihilated, you can use 3 Command Spells to revive everyone with full HP and 100% NP gauge.

    What is AP?

    Action Points (AP):
    • Everytime you do a quest, whether you succeed or fail, will use up your AP.
    • AP regenerates by 1 every 5 minutes and stops when you reach full.
    • You can also use 1 Saint Quartz or Golden Fruit to gain AP gauge equal to your maximum amount.
    • AP you recover from a Saint Quartz or Golden Fruit can go over your max AP.
    • So your current AP is 20/100 then you use a Golden Fruit to recover +100 AP, then your new current AP will be 120/100.
    • You're AP gauge will automatically refill to maximum the moment your Master Level increases (AKA: Level Up).
