Marvelous Games have announced that the musou-styled action game Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star will be released onto the Nintendo Switch later this year.
Specifically the game will be released on the 20th July 2017 (within Japan), 21st July 2017 (within UK, Europe and Australia) and 25th July 2017 within America; with all three versions receiving a physical and digital release.
Unlike the previous PS4 and PS Vita release earlier in the year this Nintendo Switch release will come with all previously-paid DLC costumes (which excludes the pre-order exclusive Cold-Blooded-Warden and Shackled Bride outfits) as well as a brand new ‘Switch Exclusive’ costume as part of the game. Furthermore all three regions of the game will contain Japanese audio with English, Japanese, Chinese (traditional) and Korean text.
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 previously released for PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita, 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 supercomputer, “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.
We can expect further details surrounding this Nintendo Switch release in the near future; but for the time being it will be released onto the Nintendo Switch during July within Japan, UK, Europe, Australia and America.
