Fate/Extella Link Officially Announced
Marvelous and TYPE-MOON have today officially revealed Fate/Extella Link and opened its official site in Japan. This is a new Fate/Extella game that will have better graphics and gameplay system of the Dynasty Warriors-like action, as well as a new story which focuses on a new servant, the Saber-class Charlemagne, who has a Noble Phantasm named Joyeuse Ordre. There will be more new servants other than Charlemagne, that are to be announced at a later date.
All 16 servants that were playable in the previous game, Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, are also confirmed returning in this game. For a reminder, here is the list of them:
- Nero Claudius (Class: Saber)
- Tamamo no Mae (Class: Caster)
- Altera (Class: Saber)
- Arturia Pendragon (Class: Saber)
- Nameless (Class: Archer)
- Gilgamesh (Class: Archer)
- Cu Chulainn (Class: Lancer)
- Medusa (Class: Rider)
- Gawain (Class: Saber)
- Lu Bu Fengxian (Class: Berserker)
- Li Shuwen (Class: Assassin)
- Elizabeth Bathory (Class: Lancer)
- Karna (Class: Lancer)
- Iskandar (Class: Rider)
- Jeanne d’Arc (Class: Ruler)
- Archimedes (Class: Caster)
Alternator also has excerpt of an interview of the game on TYPE-MOON Ace magazine, which specifies that Marvelous proposed Fate/Extella Link as a side story-like game which should focus more on the action, and a proper sequel to Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star is still being plotted separately.
As of the initial reveal, Fate/Extella Link does not have either release date or platform announced yet. However, considering that The Umbral Star was released on PlayStation 4 and Fate/Extella Link will have improved graphics, we are assuming that it will be at least coming to PlayStation 4. In the meantime, you can take a look at screenshots that have been published for this new game right below.
