We have some more details about the new Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star from Marvelous expanding on the information seen so far.
First we got some strengthening techniques found in the game, the Moon Crunch and Moon Drive. Moon Crunch utilises the Moon Cell to change into armour for the character. If you build up the Drive Gauge you can increase your attack power and enable you to perform a Guard Break on your opponent. Moon Drive is similar and is a strengthening technique for the ‘servants’ who do not have the Regalia to use the magic of the Moon Cell.
Noble Phantasms are powerful trump cards that can be used by revealing the users true name. In order to reveal said true name you’ll need to collect 3 Phantasm Circuits in a stage. The enemy can also use their own Noble Phantasms but thankfully you can stop them by attacking them, and as an added bonus when you successfully interrupt the attack, you can grab their Phantasm Circuits for yourself, handy no?
One feature that will be used a lot during the game will be Command Spells, these allow you to perform various commands such as reviving a Servant and utilising these is important to win the battle.
Masters are not able to directly participate in a battle, though they will be able to support their servants through Code Cast. Code Casts can have various different effects such as defensive or strengthening boosts. The effect you can deploy will depend on the Mystic Code (Outfit) you have equipped, so turning up in the right clothes is important here.
Choosing the right Mystic Code for the situation is important, you’ll even be able to create new Mystic Codes through crafting. Mystic Codes come in different varieties such as support-style or recovery-style each with their own abilities. So it seems there will be plenty of depth to keep you busy and experimenting with.
