Marvelous began streaming a launch trailer on Friday for the Nintendo Switch version of its Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star video game.

The port shipped in Japan on Thursday and will ship in North America on July 25. The game will include more than 30 DLC outfits, including 33 outfits already released for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita version of the game, and two other bonus outfits for first editions of the game.

XSEED Games and Marvelous released Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe in January. The game launched for the same platforms in Japan in November.

The game is also getting a release on PC on July 25.

XSEED 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.

The game's 16 Servants include the Saber class servants Artoria Pendragon (voiced by Ayako Kawasumi), Nero Claudius (voiced by Sakura Tange), Attila (voiced by Mamiko Noto), and Gawain (voiced by Takahiro Mizushima); Caster class servants Tamamo no mae (voiced by Chiwa Saito) and Archimedes (voiced by Kazuyuki Okitsu); 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), Karna (voiced by Koji Yusa), and Cuú Chulainn (voiced by Nobutoshi Kanna); Rider class servants Iskandar (voiced by Akio Ohtsuka) and Medusa (voiced by Yuu Asakawa); Assassin class servant Li Shuwen (voiced by Kunihiko Yasui); and Berserker class servant Ryofu Hōsen (voiced by Kunihiko Yasui).

Kinoko Nasu wrote the game's main scenario, and Hikaru Sakurai was the scenario assistant. Aruko Wada designed the characters, and Takashi Takeuchi is credited as the Fate series original character designer. Type-Moon produced the game's music. ELISA performed the game's theme song "ex:tella."
