Imageepoch Developing Fate/Extra For PSP

By Ishaan . September 29, 2009 . 12:29am

Oh yeah, the Fate Project is faaaar from done. This week’s Famitsu has a three-page advert-feature on Fate/Extra, a PSP action role-playing game set in the same universe, in development at Imageepoch.

 

http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/fateextra_protags.jpgMarvelous are set to publish the game, and this could be their biggest break in a while, considering how popular Fate is in Japan. Factor in that it’s a portable RPG and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it debut very nicely. Good catch.

 

The game seems to be in some sort of highschool setting similar to Persona 3 and it looks like you’ll be able to choose between a male or female protagonist. Since Luminous Arc 3 features dating-sim elements, let’s hope Imageepoch choose to include some in this game as well.

 

http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/fateextra_saber.jpg I’m not sure where in the timeline Fate/Extra is supposed to take place, but the Famitsu reveal has pictures of both Saber and Tohsaka. Two other characters seem to be Shinji and Lancer, but I can’t be sure because the art style is definitely not Takeuchi’s. Saber’s design reminds me a little of Mutsumi Inomata’s (the Team Destiny games) art.

 

The mag mentions that Type-Moon are involved with the project, though, so the series’ consistency isn’t at risk. This is probably what Kinoko Nasu was talking about when he said he was busy with outside projects a few months ago.

 

Between this, the UBW movie and the Tsukihime remake all requiring his attention, we’re never going to see Mahou Tsukai no Yoru get released, are we…

    I read somewhere that Fate/Extra is going to be an alternate universe, rather than something canon.

    Wait, so we’re getting this game? Did Fate/unlimited codes do well? *still have to get it, but might wait for the PSP Go to get it*

    This is pretty neat, I hope to see figures from this as well ^^; I’ll be sure to play the PC game before then.

      Yes, yes, play it! :D

      And no, this hasn’t been confirmed for localization yet. But maybe XSEED will pick it up if we ask them really nicely?

    I hope Capcom picks it up.

    Im pretty sure Fate/Unlimited Codes did well over here for such an obscure game. Its been in the top 10 PSN downloads since its release.

    I have said it before and will say it again, if we get this I want a disc release or nothing at all. I have not bought Fate/Unlimited and wont because I want to actually own my games, clearly this concept is lost on most people today though in a few years time when you can no longer access your games or content I will be one of those sitting back going “I told you so”. Still I would like to see this released over here as I really like the Fate series.

      You might as well live the moment. What if this trend continues, think about the awesome games and experiences your missing out on. Let the future generations figure out the mistake of the past. Don’t sit there an old person telling people “I told you so”.
      I want to try anything and everything that appeals to me.

  • QBasic

    No, Ishaan. No we won’t… T_T …Hug?

  • overlord_laharl

    I read that Nasu and Takeuchi are in this project as well so I hope we see something related with the “nasuniverse” D:

  • maxchain

    Hey, they’ve hit the big league now (the upcoming movie totally doesn’t count)! The franchise will be going toe-to-toe against the likes of the Persona ports. Good for them!

    This is the last direction I expect MMV, of all companies, to take imageepoch. I’m definitely looking forward to Last Ranker a lot more.
