Unfortunately, Famitsu's official site isn't working right now, so I have to resort to Gamestalk. There's the classic preview from Famitsu.com as well.



Following a countdown website this weekend, Marvelous has announced Fate/Extella for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu.

Fate/Extella is an action game that sees the curtain rise on a new battle. Playable character Nero Claudius (voiced by Sakura Tange), of the “Saber” class, is pictured in the magazine.

...

The game follows the after-story of the Moon Holy Grail War.

Servants (Playable Characters)

Nero Claudius (voiced by Sakura Tange) – A servant who fought through the Moon Holy Grail War. She also has a mysterious form change.
Caster Tamamo no Mae (voiced by Chiwa Saito) – A servant who uses various magic skills.
Saber Altera (voiced by Mamiko Noto) – Her first appearance in the main series after her appearance in Fate/Grand Order.

Misc.

Screenshots in the magazine show the characters taking out hordes of weaker enemies.

Development is 60 percent complete.

Wow, a Marvelous game! Interesting news.

I haven't played any Senran titles but sign me up for a Fate action game that isn't the pretty shitty doujin one.

Fate series is kind of garbage. I played the series on Vita and the writing makes me laugh.

But it is so garbage that you like it. So play the visual novels.

Fate series is saved by the rest of the nasuverse and AIMER.

Watch Fate/Zero because it's good. Skip everything else because they're bad. :p

If you have any interest in the overall series, don't start with Fate/Zero. Watch the Fate/Stay Night anime or play the visual novels.
Fate/Zero is a prequel created after Fate/Stay Night, and as such will spoil some significant parts of FSN.

Starting with a prequel is a terrible idea, I'd say.

EDIT : What Sakura said, watch/read Fate/Stay Night, if only to get to know the biggest plot points. Going for Fate/Zero first will spoil some surprises.

Not if you don't consider it a "prequel". Actual Fate is awful. Couldn't make it to ep4 of UBW. Zzzzzz.

There are lots of people that do like FSN though, and he may be one of those people.
As such I would recommend to try watching/playing FSN first, if he doesn't like then sure maybe try Fate/Zero.

You're right, lots of people with terrible taste out there. I hope he's not one of those. :)

Oh wow, it is a new game. And here I thought it would be an Extra+CCC port

Since it's a musou game from the looks of it, is it related to that Famitsu survey they did months back?

Oh, are any? Are all the Senran games Tamasoft?

Maybe DELiGHTWORKS is the developer :v

DW can barely get Fate/Grand Order working, expects them working on this game is just lol

I will always recommend the Fate/stay night first, because it's the first in the Fate series and it has more depth to it than the anime adaptions. If you really can't get into the visual novel, then just watch the animes.

If you go the anime route, then you can either start with Zero, the 2006 Fate/stay night anime or the newest Unlimited Blade Works adaption. Zero spoils Fate/stay night quite a bit but it's a great anime, that's why many recommend it. The 2006 anime is very mediocre from what I heard but it's technically the first in the series, so starting with it would be the optimal way storywise, just don't expect too much from it lol.

So: start with the VN, if you find it extremely boring then just watch the animes. Starting with Zero will spoil quite a bit but won't ruin the franchise for you. If you are worried about that then start with either the newest Unlimited Blade Works anime (not the movie) or the 2006 anime.

Watch Fate/Zero because it's good. Skip everything else because they're bad. :p

I never understood when people said that, considering that Zero has half the depth that F/SN has. I mean, sure, it's a well made anime, but it doesn't compare to the F/SN VN in my opinion. Heck, you don't even get the full story without F/SN. But, oh well, opinions I guess.

Now, I don't always agree with duckroll on things but he is right here.

Fate/Zero is the only good thing ever made in this series. The rest is all whack as fuck.

I've never been able to get into the games, especially the recent mobile one.

A Musou game could be interesting though.

Seriously, duckroll know.

Fate is not great and it is really saved by the other properties that Type Moon has.

I play some of the games and they are okay... I just feel like there is better stuff provided out there. Kind of like how Sword Art Online is total garbage like most of Dengeki Bunko published works, but they popular anyway.

This is cool tho for the fans. I wonder if there will be Takaki fan service elements if he heads the project.

It's okay though. As long as you are good friends with the creator of the IP, your startup's contract is secure!

Shame said contract couldn't cover for the additional servers and staff needed to manage that business.

Man, I forgot that Takeuchi only got DW to work on the game because they were recommended by someone he knew. To think that the fuckery surrounding that game's launch and first year happened because he couldn't be bothered to look for an actual mobile-game company.

I never understood when people said that, considering that Zero has half the depth that F/SN has. I mean, sure, it's a well made anime, but it doesn't compare to the F/SN VN in my opinion. Heck, you don't even get the full story without F/SN. But, oh well, opinions I guess.

I don't think that's possible, given Fate/Stay night has much fewer POV than F/Z (and the majority of Stay night is through one, Shirou's) and that Zero deals with storylines better and more diverse that SN.

But it did come after the visual novel so it did have the opportunity to improve on what was (and wasn't) there.

What "depth" does Fate stay/night have?
