XSEED Games has been showing off gameplay footage for Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star at E3 2016 and some lovely people have been sharing the videos on YouTube.
Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star is a fast-paced Musou-style game that lets you play as one of the fan-favorite Servant characters while fighting against many enemies. XSEED has promised that the game will also have a deep storyline that the Fate series is well known for.
During the game you won’t just come across Fate/Extra Servants but also characters from Fate/stay Night, Fate/Apocrypha, Fate/Grand Order and other Fate universes. The game will have the original Japanese voice-overs and English subtitles.
The story has been written by acclaimed series author Nasu Kinoko who was the original creator of Fate/stay Night and the scenario writer of Fate/Extra. The story will unfold from the independent perspectives of the three heroine Servants and there will also be various side stories that help develop the main storyline.
Here’s a little bit of information about the story:
On the moon is the Moon Cell Automaton, a spiritron computer, which has the power to grant any wish. Servants and the Masters who control them are engaging in battle across the spiritron-constructed virtual world, SE.RA.PH.. The prize? The right to be Moon Cell Automaton’s one owner in a ceremonial conflict known as the Holy Grail War.
The Servant, Nero Claudius, and her Master have won the Holy Grail War and have obtained the Holy Grail. But that’s not all, they have also obtained the Regalia, which is a ring that proves their kingship. With the ring and the Holy Grail they rule over their once-enemy Servants.
A new enemy has suddenly appeared though and somehow they have an item that shouldn’t exist: another Regalia…
As you can see in the videos below you’ll be able to
engage in intense battles on the ground or in mid-air to annihilate the massive number of enemy forces!
