The game is the first installment of the Fate series of the Nasuverse. It was originally released in Japan on January 30, 2004 with its First Print Limited Edition release, followed by a standard edition that was released on March 26 the same year. The game later received subsequent re-releases on PlayStation 2, PC, Vita, iOS, and Android as Fate/stay night (Réalta Nua), which removed the adult content from the original game, thus changing some story scenes to reflect on these changes, but featured new content that was exclusive to the PlayStation 2 version until its 2011 PC version. The original 2004 game was re-released along with its sequel, Fate/hollow ataraxia, as part of the Fate/stay night＋hollow ataraxia Set for the series' 10th anniversary in 2014 and was reprinted in 2019.
Despite this game not being released outside of Japan, a fan-made English patch by visual novel translation group mirror moon is available.

- The sex scenes are censored in the original Fate/stay night. Thorny Rose Studios has created a mod designed to work with mirror moon's English translation patch that removes the mosaic censorship of the game's sex scenes.
- This mod includes a folder containing a comparison of the censored and decensored versions of game's sex scenes, however, some scene in comparisons contain spoilers, so view them at your own discretion.

- I have used this patch previously years ago before knowing about the Réalta Nua version on PC. This patch also removes the disc check in the DVD reprints, and the patch also recognized the disc image of the PlayStation 2 Réalta Nua version mounted with WinCDEmu.
