Get the details below.

■ Characters

Jeanne d’Arc

  • Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto
  • Class: Ruler
  • Noble Phantasm: La Pucelle, The Crimson Holy Virgin

Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star

The holy woman that saved France. A faithfully just young woman of virtue. Putting the law first and foremost, even when danger approaches, she possesses a fair and noble spirit. Her flaw, however, is that she is overly serious.

Elizabeth Bathory

  • Voiced by: Rumi Okubo
  • Class: Lancer
  • Noble Phantasm: Bathory Erzsebet

Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star

It was rumored that she was a vampiress during her lifetime and has finally been recognized as such. An anti-heroic spirit. Her essentials are that which has beauty, yet she has somehow spiritually awoken as an idol. Certain chaos. With a demon’s horns, impish fangs, and the split tail of a dragon, in a previous age she was what caused these dragon attributes to appear in the Bathory family.

■ Story

Main Story

Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star

The Moon Cell Automaton is a spiritron computer, which exists on the moon and has the power to grant any wish. All across the spiritron-constructed virtual world, SE.RA.PH., Servants and the Masters who control them fight for the right to be the Moon Cell Automaton’s one owner in a ceremonial conflict known as the Holy Grail War.

Now, the Servant Nero Claudius and her Master have won the Holy Grail War and have obtained the universal wishing mechanism, the Holy Grail.

They also obtained the Regalia, a ring that proves their kingship. With it, they rule over their once-enemy Servants and start a new beginning on the moon’s new world.

But a new enemy has appeared before them. And this enemy has something that shouldn’t exist: another Regalia.

Sub Story

Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star

The story is told from the independent perspectives of three heroine Servants—Nero Claudius, Tamamo no Mae, and Attila—but is augmented by the various side stories of other Servants that help supplement the main storyline.

■ Gilgamesh’s Redesigned Costume

Earlier this month, Marvelous announced it would change the design of the Gilgamesh additional costume included with the PS Vita Regalia limited edition of Fate/EXTELLA in Japan due to “various reasons.” Here is the finalized design for the “Coldhearted Bloodless Warden” costume:
