The Masamune in JRPG's is usually some sort of awesome sword and the idea that Shirou becomes a demi-servant by fusing with the Heroic Spirit embodiment of SWORDS is hilarious.

I want Rasputin Kirei; but I also want Koschei the Deathless and the Baba Yaga in at some point.

I usually play RPG's where Koschei is genderflipped as a genderflipped Rurik the Great so I'm mentally prepared for it.

Koschei would've been historical peers with King Arthur based on some cursory googling of the origin of their legends so with Koschei being a bit of a lecher in legends it'd be funny and good to have two female Saber obsessed characters (including Medea).

Personally, I just think it's a shame that it's cross-platform. Makes it really ugly compared to dedicated PS4 Warriors games.

Why does Fate refused to let anyone have a beard unless their story specifically mentions that they aren't supposed to have a beard? Is it like because we're in the fem-Arthur universe everyone's beard status was also reversed?

This is why Apocrypha's character designs are garbage - an entire two servants have reasonable, historically-appropriate beards, and they didn't even bother to give Jeanne a lush, flowing Bandholz.

Fate has failed on the beard front since long before Apocrypha.

Achilles is a teenager wearing a Halloween costume he made out of cardboard and dustbin lids, Chiron is his boring dad, Atalanta is Anime Catgirl #98457, and Karna and Siegfried are gaudy, overdesigned disasters. Jack goes without saying, though at least she looks more otherworldly than Achilles. Jeanne is just Arthur with curves and random metal plates stuck all over the place. Spartacus ain't great, but his huge, goofy grin goes a long way towards salvaging the design. Will, Semiramis, and Vlad are pretty respectably cool, Astolfo is very characterful, and Fran and Avicebron are at least the fun kind of silly, even if they could stand to be a little less overdesigned.

So yeah, there are success stories, but in general, Apocrypha either piles on way too much ugly, unnecessary detail, goes real boring, or both, and really makes me miss Takeuchi's sleek, elegant, and understatedly mystical designs. Consider Fate/Zero - when Diarmuid is your worst (or, at least, least interesting) Servant design, you're doing pretty well for yourself.

Exactly. To have the occasional reasonable, character-appropriate beard is unforgivable.

I mean, multiple versions of Atalanta's tale end with her literally being divinely cursed into a lioness (for boning in a temple... because a different goddess threw a curse on her to do so. Seriously, it kind of needs to be repeated that the entire Greek pantheon were complete dicks). For once a design like that actually makes some sense in that some of said misfortune sticks.

Considering who he is, Karna's design is perfect.

It actually makes me mad how cheap they're being with the anime.

I feel they could have been way more imaginative with it, though. Catgirl ears and tail and a pretty dress are really low-effort. C'mon, guys, try leaning into that harsh contrast between aristocratic elegance and savagery a little.

Screenshots and extra details.

They've really stepped up their environment game - that stained-glass floor looks great. Hopefully, that bit about the Servants' attacks looking even flashier will translate into some revised movesets - Karna in particular was kind of rubbish for a Top Servant, except for that one jump-and-dive move.
