Marvelous Europe have today announced that Fate/EXTELLA LINK, the sequel to the popular Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, will launch in Q1 2019 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC via STEAM. Not only that, but they also revealed two special Limited Editions of the game for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, titled Emperor of Paladins Edition and Joyeuse Edition, both containing a plethora of collectors’ items for fans to savour.
Alongside the game itself, the Joyeuse Edition contains a soundtrack CD, a pack of 10 collectible 7.6cm by 12.7cm cards depicting each of the new Servants, a 43.1cm by 60.9cm cloth poster, and a 7.6cm by 11.4cm. The Emperor of Paladins Edition includes the same contents plus a stunning set of ‘Holy Tile of the Moon’ Mahjong tiles featuring characters from the Fate/EXTELLA franchise.
The story picks up where Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star left off, adding 10 servants to the original roster of 16. The high-speed action gameplay has been refined, and players will battle their way through massive invading armies to retake the virtual world of SE.RA.PH from an invading force. Players on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch can now engage in massive four-on-four online battles with up to seven other players. Foes will quiver at the True Name of players’ Noble Phantasms as they assume the role of their favourite Servant.

In addition to the 16 original Servants from Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, 10 characters from other Fate series will enter battle as playable Servants, including Astolfo, Scáthach, and Francis Drake.
