- 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.
A Message from the Creator, Kinoko Nasu
We’ve been making this under the surface from after we finished the previous game. The Holy Grail War of the Moon overturned what was once the fixed concept of Fate, and this time we’re repainting what was in Extra with this new world. It’s a story that inherits the blood of Extra. The new world of the Moon, Extella.
A Message from Takashi Takeuchi
It is neither a counter to Fate/stay night, nor is it a mere sequel to Fate/Extra.
Screenshots in the magazine show the characters taking out hordes of weaker enemies.
Development is 60 percent complete.
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
