Fate/Extra CCC Preview

After much delay, Fate/Extra CCC has been released in Japan. Former doujin group Type-Moon once again teamed up with Imageepoch to follow the story of the PSP game Fate/Extra. The new game has been described as a companion to its predecessor but is also something of a sequel.


Fate/Extra CCC does away with the tournament for the Holy Grail and instead throws the protagonist into a slightly new world with either Saber, Archer, Caster or Gilgamesh. Somewhere during the course of the first game, the Moon Cell (the ultra-computer which generated the game’s world) has been tampered with. All participants of the Holy Grail War are now in a slightly different version of Tsukumihara Academy where they struggle to regain their memory. As time goes on, they discover they are trapped in the virtual world and must work together to escape. The key to their problems lies in Sakura.

The look and feel of the game is an improvement on the first and it’s obvious Fate/Extra CCC was made with a bigger budget. Although the plot is quite bleak, there are many fanservice scenes and options – including the option to dress up your player character and servant in a number of cute or sexy clothes. There is also a feature called the Secret Garden, which is almost like a fanservice version of the game’s Matrix.

There is talk of Aksys localizing Fate/Extra CCC, as they did with Fate/Extra, but nothing has been announced. While the first game sold better than expected, fans can only hope they pick up this game as well. Currently, Fate/Extra CCC can only be bought from Japanese vendors.

    Nice article. You posted it just as I was about to put up my review of the original Fate/Extra 😀

    I’m glad to hear that the new game has a bigger budget because that was my main gripe with the original. It’s also nice that the old characters are making a reappearance.

    I’d love to see a localized version but considering that Vita came out last year and PSP sales dipped long before that, I’m afraid it might not happen.

      Yeah, everything looks really great, even if they’re still using those awkward 3D models. The old characters have a bit of a personality change (Leo especially) but it is really nice to see them again.

      I’m sure PSP games can still be released. Companies can always go with PSN-only releases (like with the Corpse Party sequel) and it’s not like you can’t play PSP games on Vita. I’ve heard CCC looks pretty alright on the larger Vita screen.
