All in all, Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star makes for an entertaining hack and slash experience which feels right at home on the Nintendo Switch. It’s admittedly a little pricey at £49.99, but for those looking for some Dynasty Warriors style action, it fits the bill quite nicely, and those familiar with the Fate franchise will also get a kick out of its story which features many familiar faces.
Fate/Extella goes through the motions to be considered a Musou genre title, but it does not do enough to differentiate itself from the competition. Battles are monotonous, gameplay grows stale quickly, and the storytelling is just downright atrocious.
For better or worse, Fate/EXTELLA embodies everything that makes an anime game different from the ordinary crowd, including characters that speak only in exposition, fan service that creeps you out, and gameplay that is more about watching cool stuff happen than actually being fun.
