posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Marvelous, Inc. began streaming the third television commercial on Thursday for the Fate/Extella action game for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4. The commercial reveals the results of the third fan poll, which asked fans which Servant they want to match up against Nero. The winner was Saber (Artoria).
Note: The below video can't be viewed in Australia, New Zealand, or the U.S.
The fourth poll asks fans to choose between Nero and Tamamo no Mae, and to then choose a costume for that character and a spoken line fans would want her to say to them if they were alone together. Voting ends on August 1 at 10:00 a.m. JST, and the site will announce the results on August 6.
Previously revealed servants include the Saber class servants Artoria Pendragon (the game's website spells the name as Altria Pendragon, voiced by Ayako Kawasumi), Nero Claudius (voiced by Sakura Tange), Attila (voiced by Mamiko Noto), and Gawain (voiced by Takahiro Mizushima); Caster class servant Tamamo no Mae (voiced by Chiwa Saito); Archer class servants Mumei ("no name," voiced by Junichi Suwabe) and Gilgamesh (voiced by Tomokazu Seki); Ruler class servant Jeanne d'Arc (voiced by Maaya Sakamoto); Lancer class servants Elizabeth Báthory (voiced by Rumi Ookubo) and Karna (voiced by Koji Yusa); Rider class Iskandar (voiced by Akio Ohtsuka); and Berserker class servant Ryofu Hōsen (voiced by Kunihiko Yasui).
The game will ship in Japan on November 10. XSEED Games will release the game in North America on the PS4 and PS Vita this winter under the title Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star. The company describes the game:
Expanding upon the extensive and much-beloved Fate universe with a standalone story from acclaimed series writer Kinoko Nasu (of Fate/stay night fame), Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, developed by Marvelous, Inc., transpires on the new world of Extella through 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 ruled by the all-powerful lunar super computer Moon Cell Automaton, these champions now duke it out 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 from the independent perspectives of the three heroine Servants and face off against foes from a variety of Fate productions, including characters from Fate/stay night, Fate/Apocrypha and Fate/Grand Order, in fast-paced action. A new form change battle mechanic 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.
Kinoko Nasu is writing the game's main scenario, and Hikaru Sakurai is the scenario assistant. Aruko Wada is designing the characters, and Takashi Takeuchi is credited as the Fate series original character designer. Type-Moon is producing the game's music.
The game will have a premium limited edition in Japan with both the PS4 and PS Vita editions, which will include: a "Saber Bride" 3D mouse pad, Fate/Extella material, and download codes for a "bondage wedding dress" outfit for Nero Claudius and the "Coldhearted Bloodless Warden" costume for Gilgamesh. The PS4 and PS Vita editions will also each get a separate limited edition with the Fate/Extella material and DLC: the PS4 limited edition will offer the Nero Claudius outfit DLC while the PS Vita limited edition will offer the Gilgamesh outfit DLC.
