XSEED Games announced today that Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star will be heading to Steam on July 25. This will be the same day as the Nintendo Switch release.
The Steam version will retail for $49.99/€49.99/£39.99, and will be sold at a 10% launch discount from July 25 to July 31. All of the DLC available for the game will also be 20% off during this period.
Those interested in the Nintendo Switch version can pick it up for $59.99 which includes over 30 of the already-released DLC costumes.
Here is an overview from the press release:
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 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 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 and Windows PC versions featuring game text in English, Japanese, Chinese (Traditional), and Korean.
Fate/Extella is currently available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. For more, check out our review!
