The final film in the trilogy with Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel II. spring song was set for a spring 2020 Japanese debut as it was originally planned for a March 28th, 2020 debut before being pushed back to an April 25th, 2020 debut in the opening weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic. It didn’t take long for the reality of the pandemic to set in and on April 8th, 2020 the film was delayed indefinitely.

The official site has now updated with their plans for it by revealing an August 15th, 2020 debut for the film while also making it clear that this could change again if the conditions change. Having seen in the US the way some re-openings have gone and plans for theaters to re-open being pushed back to a different phase, the same could happen in Japan as well.

North American releases were pulled from the schedule for the first two films recently as well as theaters closed down across the US and Canada.
