Marvelous revealed and shared the first details on Fate/Extella, the newest entry in Type-Moon’s series. Here’s the latest information in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Hachima.]
The scenario of the game is being written by Kinoko Nasu and Hikaru Sakurai with character designs by Arco Wada. As far as story goes, it takes place after the Holy Grail War of the Moon.
So far they’ve confirmed the following Servants:
- Saber Nero Claudius (CV: Sakura Tange): The Servant that won through the Holy Grail War of the Moon. She has a mysterious form change, too.
- Caster Tamamo-no-Mae(CV: Chiwa Saito): A Servan that can use a variety of different magic skills.
- Saber Altera (CV: Mamiko Noto): First time appearing in the main series. [Previously only appeared in Fate/Grand Order.]
Kinoko Nasu also shared that this game is something they’ve been working on in the background ever since they finished the previous game. He also mentioned that just like how the Holy Grail of the Moon overturned the fixed concept behind Fate, this time, this new land will repaint what was in Extra. The blood of Extra is said to run in the veins of the story of Fate/Extella. Extella is name of the moon’s new world.
According to Takashi Takeuchi, Fate/Extella isn’t a counter to Fate/stay night, and it also isn’t just a simple sequel to Fate/Extra.
Additionally, the Famitsu magazine has screenshots showing off characters taking out a bunch of small-fry enemies, so it seems likely that it’ll be the series’ first Musou-style game.
Fate/Extella will release in Japan sometime in 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
