Fate/Extra Record, Remake of Fate/Extra, Announced by Type-Moon Studio BB
Fate/Extra Record, a full remake of Fate/Extra, was revealed to be in development by Type-Moon Studio BB.
Type-Moon Studio BB revealed for the tenth anniversary of Fate/Extra a new game titled Fate/Extra Record. The game is a full remake of the original PSP game, and runs on Unreal Engine. No platforms were announced besides “current generation platforms”. The game’s first trailer is included below. Note that the game was announced worldwide.
The remake was teased by Type-Moon Studio BB earlier this month as an “anniversary video” for Fate/Extra was scheduled for July 22. In fact, the video, accessible here, trolled fans by starting as a typical “let’s look back on the series video” with no announcement, before quickly switching to footage from the remake.
Type-Moon Studio BB is led by Kazuya Niino, who is on Planning and Direction on Fate/Extra Record. He already confirmed the studio is working on three different projects. One of these turned out to be Fate/Extra Record. There are two left to be announced. He also previously strongly hinted the games will be coming to PC, PS4 and Switch, giving us an idea for this remake’s platforms.
Like the original PSP game released in 2010, Fate/Extra Record is a turn-based JRPG, with dungeon crawler elements. It features an original protagonist and Servants like Nero Saberface which were new back then but are fondly nostalgic now. It also includes iconic characters of the Fate franchise and Nasuverse such as Rin Tohsaka and Archer, who uses Unlimited Blade Works in the trailer.
