XSEED Games announced that Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, the high-octane action title set within the much-beloved Fate universe, will launch for Nintendo Switch on the 25th of July in North America and on the 21st of July in Europe.
Following the game's successful launch on PS4 and PS Vita, the Nintendo Switch version comes loaded with 35 previously-released paid DLC costumes, along with an exclusive new Unshackled Bride outfit. Featuring playable characters from multiple Fate productions across three distinct narrative perspectives, Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star delivers the series' most legendary showdown yet.
Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star features a diverse cast of 16 playable “Servants” – ancient warriors of legend and imagination, always at the beck and call of their Masters – 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 as it appears following 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 the Nintendo Switch version featuring game text in English, Japanese, Chinese (Traditional), and Korean.
