XSEED Games and Marvelous released Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe in January 2017. The game launched for the same platforms in Japan in November 2016. Marvelous released a Nintendo Switch version last July. XSEED Games also released a PC version on Steam last July. The game inspired Rōto Usagi's Fate/Ikustella spinoff manga, which launched on March 6.
