Differences between F/SN and Realta Nua (Spoilers)

It's alright, we feel your pain. Noone wants to admit being gar for Berserker.

Essentially, Last Episode is
A happy end in which Shirou and Saber essentially live happily ever after.I suppose they put it there for either:

A) The Saber fanboys (like me) who didn't like the fact that no matter which ending you got, Shirou and Saber didn't end up together (also like me, and I don't really count the UBW good ending, since in that ending it's a Shirou x Rin ending, and Saber is just kinda there, despite the subtle hints at a Shirou x Saber romance in the dojo)

or

B) Since it's an all ages game, maybe they figured they'd end the game on a good note with the ideal "happily ever after" ending for the younger audience. Not really quite as good of an excuse, but you don't need a good excuse to do things on a whim...

I personally think it's A, but w/e, that's just my interpretation.

The "all-ages" thing is under quotation marks. The game is violent, mature and all of that as ever.

And Last Episode is all poetic stuff. We didn't know the "when", "what" or the "why", all of we know is that Saber route!Shirou and Saber reunited some way or another.

Yeah, everything else is left up to the individual reader. Since Last Episode is so vague, there's plenty of fanfics out there that give their own Saber/Shirou Good End, but only a few are gems.

Its up to the reader to decide whether they got reunited or Saber is just dreaming of being reunited again with Shirou.


Although personally I liked how it ended in the PC version better.
