Fate/Extella

Many new details on Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star appeared. The first is Marvelous introducing the final two Servants: Medusa and Archimedes.

Fate Extella Rider

Medusa is a Rider Servant, and based on the same Medusa from Greek mythology; obviously missing the snake hair and body. She wears the blindfold mask on her face to keep her gaze in check, which can turn anyone to stone. Rider is a hero who came forth during a time when the Holy Grail was corrupted previously in the series, making her closer to anti-Heroic. The Servant served as a villain in Fate/Stay Night and Unlimited Blade Works. She played more of a major role in Heaven’s Feel, allowing for more exploration of her personality.

Fate Extella Archimedes

Archimedes will be a Caster Servant, and is described as:

A celebrated genius in human history. One of the earliest mathematicians. He does not participate in the Holy Grail War, but is a Servant entrusted to the security of the SE.RA.PH itself. He was deemed worthy of trust and chosen by the Moon Cell as supervisor based on his ability, personality, and achievements. He is good with reason and rationale, doesn’t depend on his own views as much as possible, and strives to treat all things with objective honesty.

In addition to these characters, Marvelous has announced other features of Fate/Extella.

fate-extella-my-room

The first is “My Room,” where you can converse with your Servant. Each Servant has a “Kizuna level.” Think of it like an affection meter, which will eventually gain extra skill slots or trigger special events.

fate-extella-side-missions

The second feature are side missions issued by Servants. These are challenges which can be obtained to improve the Kizuna Level with that particular Servant, and are random. Only five can be done on a single stage however.

fate-extella-side-missions

The third feature allows you to install skills onto Servants in order to strengthen up. These are separated into three types and color-coded: red/attack, blue/defense, and yellow/support.

fate-extella-closet

The final feature is the Closet, where you can change a Servant’s outfit. There will also be DLC in addition to in-game obtainable costumes. Even the character portrait changes.

Last but not least, Fate/Extella has the opening movie online for everyone to view. You can check it out down below. Though you can also check out some of the gameplay here as well.

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star will release in Japan on November 10 on PlayStation 4 and Vita. North America will get the game on November 15. Europe will see a release on November 11.

    I’m surprised that Europe is getting it first. The features are pretty standard, but the DLC comment was slightly irritating.

  • Panpopo

    Medusa is a nice addition – this game is really picking the popular characters for fan service! Never heard of Archimedes- I guess he is new to this series, maybe specifically for this game?

    Hope DLC options will include characters as well.

  • Zeonis

    I am tempted to get this game but I am not sure if it is my type of game. Does it have much of a story?

    • Panpopo

      Hmm not a whole lot has been revealed yet to my knowledge other than that it is a sequel, but the original psp game was pretty much a VN in terms of story which I really enjoyed. Considering it is a musou though I am not expecting anything too extensive.
