Alongside the upcoming release of PlayStation 4 and PS Vita versions, XSEED Games confirmed today that Fate/Extella Link will be coming to Switch as well when it launches in the West in Q1 2019.
Similar to the PlayStation 4’s “Fleeting Glory Edition” that retails for $79.99, the Switch version will be getting the same edition. It will include the following: a soundtrack, a pack of 10 collectible 3-inch by 5-inch cards depicting each of the new servants, a 17-inch by 24-inch cloth poster, and a 3-inch by 4.5-inch acrylic diorama that features the Seravants Nero, Drake, and Scathach- these will be housed in a custom box.
Here’s an overview of the game:
Picking up right where the 2017 smash hit Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star left off, Fate/Extella Link adds 10 Servants to the original roster of 16. The high-speed action gameplay fans have come to know and love has been even further refined as players are tasked with battling their way through massive armies to protect the virtual world of SE.RA.PH at all costs. As in the PlayStation 4 version, players on Nintendo Switch and Steam will be able to engage in grand-scale four-on-four online battles with up to 7 other players. Foes will quiver at the True Name of each opposing player’s Noble Phantasm as they assume the roles of their favorite Servants.
– Combatants from Across the Fate Universes Join the Fray – In addition to the 16 original Servants from Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, 10 characters from other Fate series will enter battle as playable Servants, including Astolfo, Scáthach, and Francis Drake.
– Hunker Down in Base Camp – Players can move freely around their army’s base camp—a medieval cathedral raised into the sky—and interact with their Servants to build meaningful bonds.
– Polished Graphics and Battle Mechanics – Players can experience refined combat mechanics and graphics throughout every part of the gameplay experience.
Fate/Extella Link will be released sometime in Q1 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Check back with us near the release date for our review coverage.
