XSEED Games to Bring Franchise’s First Western PC Release Alongside Nintendo Switch™ Version on July 25; Launch Sale on PC to Mark the Occasion
Torrance, Calif. — July 5, 2017 — XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that Fate/EXTELLA, the high-octane action title set within the much-beloved Fate universe, will launch for Windows PC via Steam on July 25, 2017 as a standalone digital release for $49.99, €49.99, and £39.99. To celebrate, XSEED Games will host a one-week 10% off launch sale for the base game as well as 20% off all of the Windows PC version’s DLC from July 25 through July 31.
Following a successful launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system, the upcoming Nintendo Switch version of Fate/EXTELLA comes loaded with over 30 previously-released paid DLC costumes along with an exclusive new Unshackled Bride outfit. The Nintendo Switch version will release in North America simultaneously with the Windows PC version on July 25 via the Nintendo eShop and at retail stores for MSRP $59.99.
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 features a diverse cast of 16 playable “Servants” – ancient warriors of legend and imagination, always at the beck and call of their Masters – 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 as it appears following that previous Holy Grail War.
Players will experience the story of Fate/EXTELLA 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 the Nintendo Switch and Windows PC versions featuring game text in English, Japanese, Chinese (Traditional), and Korean.
Fate/EXTELLA is developed by Marvelous Inc. and is published in North America by XSEED Games. In addition to standard retail and digital formats for the Nintendo Switch version, the game is available on the PlayStation®4 and “PSVita” systems 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 the Fate/EXTELLA universe, 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. The PlayStation®4, “PSVita” system and Nintendo Switch versions of this title have been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB. The Windows PC version of the game is not rated by the ESRB.
