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.
