Fate/EXTRA Limited Edition Comes Packed With Extra Goodies!

Fate/EXTRA Will be Released in North America on 11/1/11

Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment software, is proud to announce that Fate/EXTRA, the RPG based on the hit series Fate/stay night, will be coming to North America on 11/1/11! Developed by respected Japanese RPG developers Imageepoch and TYPE-MOON, Fate/EXTRA will be released for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system in North America. An all new scenario that takes place in the wildly popular Fate/stay night universe, Fate/EXTRA features a cast of new characters and fan favorites, a unique, easy to understand battle system, and a grand story of destruction, absolution, and deep insight into what it truly means to be human.

The North American Limited Edition will include some of the same sought-after items bundled with the Japanese version such as the special 15-page Fate Visual Works art book and the 11 song Limited Soundtrack. Fate/EXTRA will be released with an MSRP of $39.99 for the Limited Edition, $29.99 for the retail standard edition, and $24.99 for the PlayStation®Network download version.

 

Fate/EXTRA Story Elements:

Waking up in a strange virtual world with no recollection of the past, the main character finds themselves forced to fight for survival in a war they do not understand for a prize beyond value; the opportunity to have one’s wish granted. With only an enigmatic “Servant” by their side, the protagonist will have to face both friends and foes in battles to the death in order to not only gain possession of a mysterious object known as the “Holy Grail,” but also to find the answer to the most important question of all: “Who am I?”

Fate/EXTRA Key Features:

  • 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.

Fate/EXTRA has been rated Teen with Drug Reference, Fantasy Violence, Language, and Sexual Themes by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB). More information about Aksys Games and Fate/EXTRA can be found at www.aksysgames.com.
