Choose Your Own Servant In Fate/Extra

By Laura . January 3, 2010 . 1:29pm


As we’ve covered before, you can choose the sex of the main character in Fate/Extra. According to a recent preview at Famitsu, this decision will actually affect the story later in the game. More on this below.


There are now 3 possible Servants to choose from. Which you get will be determined by decisions made early in the game. Judging by the screenshots, in addition to the red variant on the classic Saber, it is also possible for you to get a Caster — who seems to be based off a fox girl — and what seems to be the original Archer, who is no doubt familiar to those who know of the Fate series.


This time, the battlefield is a virtual reality world, called the "Serial Phantasm." The game takes place in a setting similar to that of the original game, the campus of Gekkaibara School, and the main portion of the Holy Grail War will take place in this Serial Phantasm; a virtual reality called Seraph. There, the seven Wizards, who have been transformed into spirits, and their Servants fight to the death over the Holy Grail, which can grant any desire to its bearer.

    Hm, i hope this gets localized. >:(

  • Wow! This is starting to sound interesting, although Castor looks out of place from Saber and Archer..

  • Please, do not tempt me so. Bring me good news sometime soon of this being translated and released outside of Japan.

    Make it compatible with the PS3 and for the love of all that is holy I will buy it.

  • cool, but i have a question for those who know japanese ( im still learning), why are kanjis to say master? O_o, wouldnt they put it in katakana, is the same with bleach, the put “hollow” with a kanji.. My guess is that the kanji means the same thing it means in katakana, but pronounced in japanese? someone could tell me pl0x

      I think it’s because they want to use an English word, but make the meaning understandable to Japanese people who may not know it. Not entirely sure though.
      Also, I don’t think that Fate UC sold all that well here… I wonder if we’ll get this one.

        Well, I’m not sure a download-only game for PSP really has a fair chance to begin with.

        It’s sad that so many good PSP games stay in Japan though. It’s like the 16-bit era all over again.

      • Actually UC sold pretty well, it was one of the top downloads for a month.

        • cowcow

          Because it was a fighting game published by Capcom. This has less a chance

  • eliel

    cool can’t w8 to find out if its gona come out in the US…

  • holyPaladin

    Make me remember of UBW movie!

  • You know, this is beginning to sound a little like .hack//FATE…

    • i want another hack game… *sniff*

  • TyeTheCzar

    My captions for that pic(Saber’s asking if you’re her master):
    “Wait…What are you asking again? I was distracted, wondering why you aren’t wearing a more practical battle outfit…”

    If anyone remembers Fate/Stay Night, Saber at least had the dignity and practicality to wear armor.
