Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star

A celebrated genius in human history. One of the earliest mathematicians. He does not participate in the Holy Grail War, but is a Servant entrusted to the security of the SE.RA.PH itself. He was deemed worthy of trust and chosen by the Moon Cell as supervisor based on his ability, personality, and achievements. He is good with reason and rationale, doesn’t depend on his own views as much as possible, and strives to treat all things with objective honesty.

■ Kizuna and Side Missions

My Room

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star

Between battles, you can pass the time with your Servant in “My Room.” Here, you can enjoy conversations with your Servant and prepare for the next battle. Additionally, by increasing your “Kizuna Level,” which signifies your level of connection with your Servant, you’ll gain various benefits, such as an extra Install Skill slot, or maybe even trigger a special event.

Side Missions

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star

For every stage there are various “Side Mission” challenges issued by Servants. Although it won’t affect the clear conditions of the stage, if you do things such as “defeat a number of enemies” or “gain control of the base within the time limit,” your Kizuna Level with your Servant will increase when the stage is cleared. The content of Side Missions change at random, and there can be up to five to challenge for a single stage.

strong>■ Install Skills

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star

By setting Install Skills, you can bestow your Servant with new skills to strengthen them. Skills are divided into three categories and offer a variety of effects. Red are attack-type skills, Blue are defense-type, and Yellow are support-type.

■ Closet

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star

By obtaining costumes in the game and via downloadable content, you can change outfits in the “Closet.” By changing outfits, not only will you fight with a different attire than usual, the event scene character illustrations will also change. Change into a flashy costume and the mood of a serious event may seem a bit different!

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan on November 10, and in North America and Europe this winter.
