It comes at a price though, since it has only been confirmed for Japan but with the likes of XSEED and Marvelous already localising the game for a Q1 2019 western release for other platforms, it could be a simple matter of time before a western Switch release is revealed.
In any case, for those unfamiliar with the game, both a trailer and an overview, can be seen right here:
Picking up right where the 2017 smash hit Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star left off, Fate/Extella Link adds 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 protect the virtual world of SE.RA.PH from an invading force. Players on 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 favorite Servant.
- Combatants from Across the Fate Universes Join the Fray – 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, Scathach, and Francis Drake.
- Hunker Down in Base Camp – Players can move freely around their army’s base camp – a medieval cathedral raised into the sky – and interact with their Servants to build meaningful bonds.
- Polished Graphics and Battle Mechanics – Players can experience refined combat mechanics and graphics through the game.
