Ghostlight Announces Fate EXTRA
A "who am I?" RPG coming to PSP later this year.
Ghostlight announced today that they will be bringing Imagepooch and TYPE-MOON's RPG Fate/EXTRA to the PAL region for the Sony PSP later this year. The game takes places in a parallel universe to the hugely popular Japanese visual novel Fate/Stay Night.
In Fate/EXTRA, players take control of a character that awakens in a strange virtual world, forced to fight for their life in a war that they don't understand for the ultimate prize: an opportunity to have one's wish granted. The trouble the player faces is that not only do they not remember the past at all, but don't remember who they are as well. With only a "Servant" at their side, the player will have to face friends and enmies in battles to the death to gain possession of the mysterious "Holy Grail".
Features of Fate/EXTRA include:
- Intuitive, Fast-paced Battle System: Using Break, Attack, and Guard abilities in combination with powerful Special Moves and Code Casts, players are required to plan out their attacks to effectively counter their opponent’s moves and emerge victorious from potentially deadly encounters.
- Engrossing Story: Written by the creator of the original Fate series of PC games, Kinoko Nasu, the story of Fate/EXTRA will not only appeal to long time fans of the Fate universe, via the inclusion of many familiar characters, but will also appeal to RPG fans looking for a deep, non-formulaic storyline that delves into such mature themes as loyalty, death, love, and what it means to be human.
- Extensive replay value: Multiple story paths, each with their own unique dialog trees and character interactions that lead to different endings.
