To commemorate the 10th anniversary of PSP RPG Fate/EXTRA, Type-Moon Studio BB teased a current-generation remake of the original game titled Fate/EXTRA Record and destined for release on multiple platforms.

Watch the Fate/EXTRA Record Debut Trailer:

The trailer does show a fair amount of remastered content, particularly cutscenes done up with update graphics. The player character (given the official name “Hakuno Kishinami”) is shown interacting with Rin Tohsaka, Rani VIII, and Shinji Matou. The Servants Nero Claudius (Saber), Francis Drake (Rider) enter combat, and Archer (Emiya) shows off his Noble Phantasm, Unlimited Blade Works.

Fate/EXTRA was first released in 2010 on the PSP, and localized into English by Aksys Game in 2011. It told the story of the “Moon Holy Grail War”, a more sci-fi inflected take on Fate/Stay Night‘s original concept. In it, “wizard” Spiritron hackers dive into a virtual world to summon Servants and do battle for control of the Holy Grail, which in this case is an omnipotent supercomputer built into the core of the moon. Fate/EXTRA featured character designs by artist Wada Arco, and introduced fans to Servants like Nero Claudius, Tamamo-no-Mae, and Francis Drake. The game received a PSP sequel, Fate/EXTRA CCC, which was never localized, though its Servants, like BB, Meltryllis, Passionlip, and Kiara Sessyoin, eventually made it into Fate/Grand Order.

The Fate/EXTRA Record reveal itself was less than ten minutes long, serving mainly to debut the trailer, then use a motion-captured, “Virtual Youtuber”-style avatar of Rin Tohsaka to promise more information on another stream this July 22, 2020, at 2000 Japan time.

Fate/EXTRA Record is in development, and due out on multiple platforms. The official website is accessible here.
