Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star Announced for Nintendo Switch; Exclusive DLC

During today’s Nintendo Direct, Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star will come to Ninento Switch on July 21, 2017.

Originally released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, Fate/Extella will make its way onto the Switch.

Nintendo released the exclusive updates to the Switch version:

  • The Nintendo Switch version will come loaded with 35 previously-released paid DLC costumes.
  • an exclusive new Unshackled Bride outfit.

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star puts the player in control of the “master” who works together with “servants” to take place in an all our war to control the Moon Cell Automaton computer.

The publisher details further:

Developed by Marvelous Inc. and expanding upon the extensive Fate universe with an original story from acclaimed series writer Kinoko Nasu (of Fate/stay night fame), Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star features a diverse cast of “Servants” – ancient warriors of legend and imagination, always at their Masters’ orders – who survived the Holy Grail War that took place on the Moon. In a future watched over by the all-powerful lunar super computer Moon Cell Automaton, these champions now battle for dominance over this digital realm, known as “SE.RA.PH.” This story takes place after the events described in Fate/EXTRA, and depicts the world after that previous Holy Grail War.

Players will experience the story of Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star from the independent perspectives of the three factions wrestling for control over SE.RA.PH. and face off against foes from a variety of Fate productions, including characters from Fate/EXTRA, Fate/stay night, Fate/Zero, Fate/Apocrypha and Fate/Grand Order, in fast-paced combat. A new form change battle mechanic called Moon Crux debuts in this entry to match its series-first gameplay style, transforming the player-controlled Servants and granting them considerable powers that allow them to devastate enemies and take formidable challenges head-on. The game will contain the original Japanese voices with English text.
