ULTIMATE FATE SERIES SHOWDOWN, FATE/EXTELLA: THE UMBRAL STAR, MAKES ITS LUNAR LANDING
Wield the Powers of Historical Figures and Engage in Battlefield-style Action in an Epic Struggle for Eternal Supremacy, Now Available on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita
Torrance, Calif. — January 17, 2017 — XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, the highly-anticipated action title set within the much-beloved Fate universe, is now available in North America for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system. Featuring 16 playable Servants from multiple Fate productions across three distinct narrative perspectives, Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star aims to deliver the series’ most legendary showdown yet.
In addition to standard retail and digital formats, the game is available today for both platforms in a limited Noble Phantasm Edition bundle, which contains a 7.5” by 6.3” hardcover art book featuring over 100 pages of high-quality artwork and backstory from Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, a pack of sixteen collectible 3” by 5” cards depicting each of the game’s Servants, and a 24” by 17” cloth poster, all housed in a custom collectible box. Furthermore, for the first two weeks following today’s launch, the PlayStation®Store will offer a special PlayStation®Vita digital bundle which will include the core Fate/EXTELLA “PSVita” game, an exclusive “PSVita” theme, and the exclusive “Cold-Blooded Warden” DLC outfit for the character Gilgamesh.
Developed by Marvelous Inc. and expanding upon the extensive Fate universe with an original story from acclaimed series writer Kinoko Nasu (of Fate/stay night fame), Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star features a diverse cast of “Servants” – ancient warriors of legend and imagination, always at their Masters’ orders – who survived the Holy Grail War that took place on the Moon. In a future watched over by the all-powerful lunar super computer Moon Cell Automaton, these champions now battle for dominance over this digital realm, known as “SE.RA.PH.” This story takes place after the events described in Fate/EXTRA, and depicts the world after that previous Holy Grail War.
Players will experience the story of Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star from the independent perspectives of the three factions wrestling for control over SE.RA.PH. and face off against foes from a variety of Fate productions, including characters from Fate/EXTRA, Fate/stay night, Fate/Zero, Fate/Apocrypha and Fate/Grand Order, in fast-paced combat. A new form change battle mechanic called Moon Crux debuts in this entry to match its series-first gameplay style, transforming the player-controlled Servants and granting them considerable powers that allow them to devastate enemies and take formidable challenges head-on. The game will contain the original Japanese voices with English text.
Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star is developed by Marvelous Inc. and is published in North America by XSEED Games. The limited Noble Phantasm Edition has a suggested retail price of $69.99 for the PS4™ system and $59.99 for the “PSVita” system, while the standard retail and digital editions of the game are available for $49.99 and $39.99, respectively. This title has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB.
