Fate/Extra review


Fate/Extra Release date:
* JP July 22, 2010
* NA November 1, 2011
After I played the game half through of the japanese version of Fate/Extra, finally Aksys Games has confirmed they are localizing the game for North America, this November 1, 2011. Fate/Extra is a dungeon role-playing game for the PlayStation Portable, created by Type-Moon and Image Epoch and published by Marvelous Entertainment.

Fate/Extra immediately brings to mind comparisons with Atlus' Persona games.
Players select either a male or female character, and one of three Servants with whom they will partner ( — Saber, Archer, or Caster) for the Holy Grail War. Taking place within an artificial world known as the Moon Cell.

Some screen shot from the english ver.

The game located within the Moon Cell is the school, Tsukumihara Academy, where the player character is a student. Those who played the original Fate/Stay Night will recognise some of the characters, such as Rin Tohsaka, but as it is an alternate universe (splitting off at some point in the 1980s/1990s according to the creator) they do not have any other connection to the visual novel. Fans of other Type-Moon games may also want to keep their eyes open for the number of cameos and shout-outs in Fate/Extra.

Male & female character, you can choose either one.

Saber and female character.

Servants profile:

Saber Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus :
One of three Servants available to the protagonist. Similar to Arturia Pendragon, Nero is female. While she was notorious as a tyrannical emperor and for her arrogance as an artist with supremacy comparable to the gods, Nero is a kindhearted individual who wanted what was best for her subjects. Her Noble Phantasm is Aestus Domus Aurea.

Caster Tamamo-no-Mae :
One of three Servants available to the protagonist. Supposedly a nine-tailed fox who won the favour of Emperor Toba as a beautiful and knowledgeable courtesan, Tamamo-no-Mae is believed to be a facet of the sun goddess Amaterasu. By becoming a Heroic Spirit to fulfill her wish of "becoming a good wife," her true power has been limited. Her Noble Phantasm is Suiten NikkĊ Amaterasu Yano Shizuishi.

Archer Name unknown :
One of three Servants available to the protagonist. Like his counterpart in Fate/stay night, Archer is not a heroic spirit from legend, but an human who strived to be an "Ally of Justice," and has since become cynical and jaded toward the ideal. Though classified as an Archer, he solely wields a pair of short swords and excels in the magecraft of projection. His Noble Phantasm is Unlimited Blade Works.
