Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star Coming to Switch

Fate/EXTELLA will be bringing the Holy Grail War to the Nintendo Switch (along with plenty of DLC)

XSEED Games has officially confirmed that it will be bringing Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star to the Nintendo Switch.

Originally released earlier this year on the PlayStation 4 and Vita, Fate/EXTELLA took the Fate series into unknown territory with its hack-and-slash, one-versus-many gameplay reminiscent of the Dynasty series. Players will be able to view the latest Holy Grail war through three unique perspectives throughout the game. Players can also expect to have a wide variety of Servants at their disposal, including some from previous Fate entries such as Fate/ExtraFate/stay night, and Fate/Zero.

The Nintendo Switch version of Fate/EXTELLA will include a whopping 35 extra costumes, all of which was paid DLC in previous versions of the game, for free – plus an additional exclusive Shackled Bride Outfit. The new version will also include game text for English, Japanese, Chinese (Traditional), and Korean.

Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star will be making its Switch debut on July 25 in North America, and on July 21st in Europe and Australia.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
