More information on Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star
Kiniko Nasu and Hikaru Sakurai are writing the main story, while Type-Moon is handling music, and Aruko Wada is lead character designer. Marvellous is handling development.
The game is releasing on November 10th in Japan, with XSEED handling the release in North America for ‘early 2017’, under the name Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star. Marvellous will release the game in Europe and Australia at the same time.
There is a limited edition, which includes a Nero Bride mousepad and extra Fate/Extella material. The Playstation 4 version will get a unique outfit for Nero Claudius called the ‘wedding bondage dress’, while on the Vita Gilgamesh gets the ‘coldhearted bloodless’ warden outfit.
The story of Fate/Extella is a bit different than what we have come to expect from Fate/Stay Night. It’s a sequel to Fate/Extra and Fate/CCC and is alternate universes of Fate/Stay Night. The game is set inside a digital world known as Serial Phantasm or SE.RA.PH, controlled by the AI Moon Cell. In the game, Servants are battling it out for control over this digital world. They are divided into three parties, Attila’s party, Nero’s party and Tamamo No Mae’s party.
