Fate/Extella Link heads to Nintendo Switch in Japan
A new listing on Amazon Japan has revealed that Fate/Extella Link is heading to Nintendo Switch early next year in the region. Fate/Extella Link released this past June in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Vita, and it is a sequel to Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star.
The listing shows a Japanese release date of January 31, and this version includes three chibi-fied costumes for Nero Claudius, Tamamo no Mae, and Altera. These costumes will also be available in the PS4 and Vita releases as paid DLC at a later time.
The Switch version supports both handheld and docked modes, and it also includes both four-versus-four online multiplayer and local multiplayer capabilities. And just like the PlayStation releases, having a save data of The Umbral Star in your Switch console will let you obtain more bonus costumes.
This isn't a big surprise, considering The Umbral Star was also ported to Switch after its initial release. The Umbral Star also received a PC port by XSEED, although there is currently no word on a PC port for Fate/Extella Link.
XSEED Games is releasing a localized version of Fate/Extella Link early next year for PlayStation 4 (physical and digital) and Vita (digital-only). You can also check out our impressions from E3 2018.
Update: Marvelous has released a trailer for the Switch version of Fate/Extella Link.
