Fate/Extella Link on Nintendo Switch will feature some chibi costumes, local multiplayer (alongside online multiplayer), English and Chinese language options (which means a western release is more than likely), and more. Also, players with save data for Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star will be able to unlock some exclusive costumes in this game. Speaking of Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, it’s getting a budget price release on December 20th in Japan, as part of Marvelous’ Best Collection (price: 4 980 Yen).
