Fate/Extra CCC Is As Golden As Gilgamesh With 110,000 Units Shipped

By Spencer . April 22, 2013 . 12:47am

fateHuh, so maybe all of those delays were worthwhile. Marvelous AQL announced Fate/Extra CCC, which shipped a year late shipped over 110,000 units. That number, Marvelous AQL says, is more than double Fate/Extra.

 

Fate/Extra CCC has a new story written by Kinoko Nasu, adds Gilgamesh as one of the Servants, and specific endings for each Servant. Developer Imageepoch also made the game more user friendly by adding an auto battle feature and a next objective notification to let players know what to do next.

 

Fate/Extra CCC came out on March 28 in Japan. Aksys released Fate/Extra here and are still working with Marvelous AQL since they are publishing Muramasa Rebirth. I wonder if this news will encourage them to pick up CCC and release it here.

    Nice, I look forward to seeing more from this series, though I’d appreciate a bit more experimentation with the mechanics to keep it fresher.

    • MrTyrant

      and I would prefer new servants too, there are a lot of heroes out there that could try. The only new ones in extra CCC were Elizabeth and Karna, in fact Elizabeth was a Lancer and Berzerker but you fight her like three times (not couting the 1 turn skirmish)

      • Kibbitz

        Yep, though Gilly is new too!

        I haven’t started on CCC proper yet, but I’ve no issues with what they seemed to be doing, which is why I was confident enough to preorder it. However, I would love to have ImageEpoch stop with the current crew here, or at least the next game if that’s how the story is set up.

        It’s cool to have a long continuing plot and reconnect with past characters, but I’d like a fresh new cast of servants now too. Don’t expect them ever to drop female Saber or the current Archer though.

        You forgot Shota Caster btw.

        @Kibbitz:disqus i doubt there will be another F/E though. Nasu said this will be his last Fate/ . Then again….

        • MrTyrant

          Sadly you don’t fight that servant, he just…well spoilers, but it’s part of the true ending.

          I was going to say is that they waste space in servants, Robin hood and Alice are just mid-bosses “without” master, the others don’t appear and Gawain doesn’t do anything. Of course BB i don’t count her, other two servant are just Sakura clones and Elizabeth had two classes. Karna isn’t lancer like Apocrypha but instead a launcher class (wut)

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

            If Goldie can get a class for himself then why not for Karna? :P

          • MrTyrant

            Gil is Gil only he doesn’t have class but Karna has class in this game. That’s the difference.

        • Alexander Marquis Starkey

          Nasu says it’s HIS last Fate game. Other writers and developers in that company will have their chance at it now.

  • Go2hell66

    looks like psp isn’t going anywhere anytime soon

    • Thatguy

      That little thing is truly invincible

  • Foryth

    I haven’t played the first one yet, but I’d buy this.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Good numbers. I just got my copy of the first game and I see why its getting a lot of love. I wonder if we will ever see this outside Japan though….

    • Zeonsilt

      We may see it as a Digital download,at least.
      p.s.Vita owners will be happy(like me),though my PSP is still alive and kicking.

  • Keima88

    I will import it from the states when it comes out there. Hmm going to play the first one again I miss caster.

  • natchu96

    Gilgamesh is better than gold!

    • Mithfalath

      In fact, all the gold in the world is Gilgamesh’s property.

    While the game is apparently completely excellent overall, some of the… content… may make this a dicey proposition for export. At the very least, it may be facing some of the dreaded cuts and/or edits.

    Hope you’re looking at this, Aksys.

    If western release happens I don’t think it will be a physical release, but I still would welcome it as am only at JLPT3 so it’s hard for me to understand everything that is happening :(

    Anyway I myself got the Virgin White edition (lucky!) didn’t have much time to play recently but managed to clock around 10h or so, and having Gilgamesh as servant is a real blast, although you do need to mind your answers early in the game as he can kill you if its something not to his liking :S …. experienced this when I’ve picked something that would be ok for me, but wasn’t for him and 1h went puff as I didn’t save my game :O

    fingers crossed!

    I just popped in Fate/Extra last night not having playing it since it came out.
    I forgot that it’s actually a fun little battle system. Hopefully CCC gets localized or fan translated at the very least.

  • Natat

    Very good news! I really want to play this game, I hope Aksys does something soon…

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Awww yeah, I can feel the localization already =^_^=

    Every voice counts.

    I hope they release this in America. All I’m waiting for is to this be announced and then I’ll get the Fate Extra from the PSN.

  • Angel Picard

    I really hope Fate/Extra CCC gets localized.

  • Christopher Nunes

    I wonder if it’s possible if they localize it they could add English Dub audio as an option along with the original Japanese voices? Like with Soul Sacrifice? I doubt it, but there’s a LOT of voiced lines in this one and the Secret Garden has voiced clips as well but no “dialogue” to say the least to understand what they’re saying.

    Maybe Aksys could add a dialogue box like Namco is doing with Project X Zone so we can understand what the characters are saying.

    Either way I want Fate/Extra CCC and have my beloved Caster by my side again and try out Gilgamesh on the CCC route of the game! ^_^

  • ADC

    This is just begging to be localized. Come on, Aksys.
