Marvelous Europe today announces that Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, the highly-anticipated cation title set within the much-beloved Fate universe, will release in Europe on January 20th 2017 for the PlayStation®4 and the PlayStation®Vita. Alongside the standard release, a limited production of the European exclusive Moon Crux Edition bundle containing 7.5” by 6.3” hardcover art book featuring over 100 pages of high-quality artwork and backstory from Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, a pack of sixteen collectible 3” by 5” cards depicting each of the game’s Servants, and a 24” by 17” cloth poster, all housed within a high quality collectible presentation box.
Furthermore, the digital version of Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star for PlayStation®4 is now available for pre-order from the PlayStation®Store. Pre-orders will allow people to obtain the exclusive "Shackled Bride Outfit" DLC for Nero upon launch of the game for both platforms.
The digital PlayStation®Vita game will not have a pre-order campaign, however, for the first two weeks upon launch the PlayStation®Store will feature a ‘Day One Edition’ bundle, which will include the standard Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star game for PlayStation®Vita, alongside the exclusive DLC outfit "Cold-Blooded Warden" for Gilgamesh, once again, for both platforms.
Developed by Marvelous Inc. and expanding upon the extensive Fate universe with a story from acclaimed series writer Kinoko Nasu (of Fate/stay night fame), Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star features a diverse cast of “Servants” – ancient warriors of legend and imagination, always at their Masters’ orders – 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 after that previous Holy Grail War.
Players will experience the story of Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star from the independent perspectives of the three heroine Servants 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 action. 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 English text. The Collector’s and Europe exclusive ‘Moon Crux Edition’ has a price of £64.99/€74.99 for PlayStation®4 and £59.99/€69.99 for PlayStation®Vita, and is available for pre-order on the Marvelous Europe Store (www.marvelousgames.com).
