About This Game

EXTELLA — A new world unlike any ever seen.

Across the virtual realm of SE.RA.PH, Masters of digital magic commanded their Servants, great heroes and villains of history and lore, to fight in the Holy Grail War. The prize was the "Holy Grail" itself — aka the Moon Cell Automaton, a lunar supercomputer with the power to grant any wish.

Though the war has ended, with the Servant Nero and her Master on top, all is not well. Not only is Nero’s rival Servant already leading an uprising, but a new challenger waits in the dark, ready to tear through reality itself to strike at her heart.

Nero prepares to defend her new throne. Beside her stand her Master and a few loyal allies. Ahead lies not only an ocean of enemies, but an ancient secret far more terrible than any war…

Fate Heads for a New Stage!


The famous Fate EXTRA series strikes a path to a new stage with Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star. Many of the fan favorite characters including the ancient Heroic Spirits (Servants) summoned by the Holy Grail, will make their appearances. This game has been reborn as a high-speed action battle where you go against the enemy and their army. You can also take the time to enjoy the deep story of the Fate series.

TL;DR: Have you played Fate/Extra and/or Fate/Extra CCC? Buy this. Have played other Fate games? Might be worth a buy. Only watched the various anime? Carefuly consider it. Never had any contact with the series? This is not the best place to start.

As a disclaimer, I am a fate series veteran, played/watched most of all translated available material. Finished most of the game by now, am waiting until the end to summarize properly what I think regarding the story. All other points are still the same.

Plot
The plot is a direct continuation from Fate/Extra CCC, the Japan-only highschool holy battle royale and waifu/bro simulator for the PSP.

Being a direct continuation, you are quite literally thrown into the thick of things right from the start. Following in the footsteps of the Fate/Stay Night visual novel, you cannot choose a route from the get-go, as they are meant to be experienced in a specific order. Whereas in a game it might be seen as archaic for newcomers, I feel like it does help to tell a more cohesive story at the end.

Written by Nasu with help of Hikaru Sakurai, the plot in the first part is, without mincing words, very predictable. As I have not finished the game yet, I can’t tell if the first part serves the same purpose as the Fate route in F/SN (or, in a broader sense, the entirety of Fate/Extra) to better ease the reader into the world and by the third part it is more interesting and wild. Regardless, it was still very much a product you’d come to expect from Nasu, immensely poetic and descriptive as it is.

More to the point, it is almost fanservice-y in parts, from character interactions to the roster. Many if not all quips might fly above the head of even someone that is used to the fate series but hasn’t played the Extra duology; newcomers even more so.

Gameplay

Gameplay is standard Musou/Dynasty Warrior fare. Murder mooks until the big guy comes out, murder big guys, use your big finisher move on the boss, yay. For me, as a fan? It’s very cool. For those who don’t even know what happens when Archer uses his UBW? Less so.

Soundtrack

It works and fits the theme of the game. If you’ve played Fate/Extra, you know what to expect.

Graphics

Graphics are on the cheaper side of the spectrum. Sometimes it does look good, but some of the moves and special cutscenes that zoom in the characters look stiff and very low definition. Elizabeth Bathory’s scenes are one of the biggest offenders. Just looks hastily put together. With the roster as frankly small as it is, when considering the franchise as a whole, this kind of thing is hard to defend.

In closing

My opinion is that you should play this game mostly because of it’s story. Even then, that story is a continuation of a game that was never localized, that was a sequel and proper closing of a game for the PSP when it was already on it’s way out.

For someone like me, this game is entertaining, funny, and honestly what I’d expect from all parties involved.

For someone who never touched the fate series or universe, I can’t see them overlooking the repetitive gameplay, frankly boring first chapter, hard to understand story and apparently random selection of historical/mythical figures that may or may not be genderbent for whatever reason.

A literal waifu simulator with musou elements. Basically Dynasty Warriors meets Monster Girl Quest, complete with Lu Bu and fluffy tail touching. If you like slaughtering robots by the tens of thousands on the moon, making cute girls fight each other to the death over the right to be your wife, spending $60 on virtual swimsuits, genderbent Roman emperors with transparent skirts, loli dragon maid pop idol concerts, and getting mowed down by Lu Bu, this is the game for you.

Fate / Extella

Story ★★★★☆
Main Story
There is few campaigns to play through as part of the main story, which feature a different servant for every chapter allowing you to get different perspective of the story
Motivations
Wonderful characters with different motivations and backgrounds that unfold through not only the main game but the side content
Bonding Events
You can increase bonding level with your servant by using items to help them out in battle, and to answer questions correctly when said events happen

Gameplay ★★★☆☆
Army of Blobs
There is endless amounts of enemies that spawn for you to pummel to death
It’s pretty much like playing a cleaning simulator given the difficulty of the enemies, though the servants do offer somewhat of a challenge
Taking Sectors
You have to wipe out enough people to get the generals of the areas to come out and defeat them to take back areas, and some areas will even have events that lock you in until you beat the special boss
There is also enemy spawners that will send enemy units into other areas to invade unless you destroy them before they are able to
While enemies are able to invade multiple sectors, only your servants seem to have any interest in invading, so your stuck doing it yourself most of the time while having to defend what you already have
Chain Combos
There is various combos you can chain in this game, however they unlock as you level so you won’t have access to all the different varieties from the start.
Extella Maneuver
Basically a move that enables time stop when you hit an enemy and allows you to combo that enemy as long as you have enough of the gauge left, it’s a great way to clear tons of enemies at once to help you clear out sectors quickly
Noble Phantasms
Each servant has their own noble phantasm which has great visual flair and utterly destroys enemies
You need to gather 3 phantom circuits to use it, and since the third one is only available after interrupting a boss noble phantasm, it doesn’t give you many chances to see them in all their glory
Moon Drive
Servants gain insane power boost and ability to break through enemy guard, and if you are using one of the three main servants they have actual cosmetic changes and a different fighting kit

Mechanics ★★★☆☆
Crafting Clothes
You can craft your own clothes that gives up to 4 special abilities you can activate in missions to assist your servant
Equipping Skills
As you level up the servant, you get more slots to put skills into, you can chain these by type to increase their effectiveness
Using Command Seals
If your servant ever falls in combat, you can revive them up to three times using command seals, or you can use all three at once to super power up your servant to insane levels

Overall ★★★☆☆ – Good

Fate/Extella is such an amazing game. It’s a hack n’ slash with a wonderful storyline, character interactions, and the DLC is great as well.

PROS:
Great Story
Lots of content to cover (side stories, free battling, etc)
Great adaption of the Fate universe
All the best boys and best girls are in the game
Can craft plenty of things including outfits
Waifus waifus waifus waifus……


CONS:
The in-game characters don’t look all that amazing
Can be somewhat confusing to new-comers if they haven’t been into Fate beforehand
Content can be somewhat repetitve after awhile
The game is a little expensive, could be at a lower price

It’s straight up a musou game with fate characters, could get repetitive but thankfully each stage is short enough and you can swap character mid battle to keep it from becoming boring. Highly recommend if you like fate series, but beware that you likely need to play psp fate extra to get in the whole story. You don’t need to play fate extra ccc thou since its canonically non-existent.

The highlight of this game is you could play as all the servants in the game and each have their own short story arc. Playtime wise, getting 100% is maybe 50hour, the main story alone about 20.
All and all, get this while on sale or there might be a bundle with upcoming fate extella link.
