- Class: Archer
- Noble Phantasm: Infinite Creation of Swords (Unlimited Blade Works)
A wrought iron soul dressed in a red cloak. He is a cool-headed cynic, but is in fact very caring. Though he is an Archer, he is also proficient in hand-to-hand combat. Despite not having a powerful Noble Phantasm, he is able to handle anything thrown his way.
High-Speed Servant Action
In Fate/Extella, players can freely run about the battlefield while controlling a Servant, and trigger a variety of combo attacks with a combination of weak attacks and strong attacks.
Additionally, the battlefield isn’t limited to just the ground. Players are able to avoid swarms of enemies with an aerial dash and launch a concentrated attack. Furthermore, violent attacks from enemies can also be eclipsed with a guard.
Area Supremacy Battle
An Area Supremacy Battle sees Servants attacking camps known as “Sectors” in a battle to obtain “Regime Matrix” keys that indicate control of the area. Although you’ll win if you collect 15 Regime Matrices, each sector has a different number of keys.
Rather than just destroy the enemy, fighting while considering things like “prioritizing attacks from a Sector with more keys” or “fighting while protecting your own Sector targeted by an enemy” is also important.
An Extella Maneuver is a special attack that can be triggered by consuming a gauge. It can collectively damage those surrounding the main enemy it strikes. Furthermore, by consuming more of the gauge during the attack, a continuous attack becomes possible, allowing you to deal great damage to an army of enemies all at once.
Through PlayStation Network, you can upload your PlayStation 4 or PS Vita save data and transfer it between platforms. This is called Cross-Save. Additionally, through Ad-hoc mode in the PS Vita version, you can exchange profile cards between users. And if the save data of a PS Vita version that exchanged cards is transferred into the PlayStation 4 version, you can get additional items for use in the game.
Fate/Extella is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan on November 10. It will be released in standard and limited editions. A western release has not been announced, but is rumored to be in localization at XSEED Games.
