Many fan-favorite characters, including the ancient Heroic Spirits (Servants) summoned by the Holy Grail, make their appearances, with the series being reborn as a high-speed combat-oriented title in which players face off against the enemy and their army in exciting large-scale action scenes. Players can also take some time to enjoy the deep storyline the Fate series is known for.

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.

Overall, Fate/Extella is a fairly simplistic Warriors-style game with a visual novel component and pretty enough graphics. I was impressed that there’s never any slowdown, either in tabletop mode or on the TV.

The Umbral Star is a great addition to the Switch, but not a great addition to either genre it tries to emulate.
