Fate Grand Order Waifus – 10 Best Waifus in 2021
Fate/Grand Order, or simply FGO, is one of the biggest action games to ever hit the freemium market. Since 2015, FGO has evolved from a Japan-exclusive mobile game title to a worldwide hit, boasting over 1.2 million daily users as of October 2020. Along with the game’s huge community of players comes the revenue, which, as of August 2021, has broken through the $5.5 billion mark.
Aside from its solid gameplay, brilliant lore, and stunning audio-visual properties, one of the most sought out features in Fate/Grand Order is its beautiful waifus. Waifus has already been a part of the freemium RPG gaming culture. With that said, collecting these brilliantly designed characters is a great way to make the FGO experience more immersive.
