NEET Guardian of an Extra Fate

Yet another Chara PV is now online on the official site of Fate/Extra CCC

The spot light now shines upon the likes of the protector of the socially awkward NEET and net addict, Karuna

For the uninitiated, Karuna and his Master Jinako are recycled chara design from the abandoned-Fate/Apocrypha-online-game-now-turned-light-novel. ^o^;

Also, here’s an excerpt from the latest Type-Moon Ace about the development of the game.

According to an article in TYPE-MOON Ace Vol.8, besides the news about the Shaft produced opening (to be directed by Shinbou Akiyuki), Nasu and Takeuchi have this to say about Fate/Extra CCC’s story:

Nasu: “By the time I finished writing the scenario over the summer I found it was over 3 mega(bytes?). The text by itself is 2.5 times as much as Mahou Tsukai no Yoru’s.”

Takeuchi: “Gilgamesh’s presence is huge in CCC; it’s the real Gilgamesh as according to Nasu Kinoko. The last time I spoke (to Nasu) he told me very confidently that “I’ve written all there is to write about him as a character. There’s nothing left for me to write.” I hope players look forward to learning about the parts of Gilgamesh’s character that couldn’t be touched upon until now.”

Nasu: “This includes parts of his backstory first introduced in Fate/hollow ataraxia. To be perfectly honest, I tried writing my version of the Epic of Gilgamesh within CCC.

And some more translated info on the reasons of the delay.

The reason for the delays is that the prototype more or less felt like a rehash of Extra. The company gave them an extension, so they decided to redo the environments and stuff from scratch, while Nasu expanded the scenario. He was confident that he could do it in two months, but was unable to make it, leading to another extension.

– Red Saber has the same face as Saber from Fate/Stay Night because they wanted to trick people into thinking that she was Arthuria, and then surprise them when they played the game.

– The idea for CCC was hatched right after Extra went on sale, but was put on hold until they saw that people wanted a sequel

– Secret Gardens are replacing the Matrices, and as one progresses the flower petals on the drawings will go away until the girl (and Nasu just confirmed that all Secret Gardens/bosses will be female) is nekkid.

– According to Nasu, CCC is the seinen to FSN’s shonen.

– There are no time limits like the previous game, since the Grail war system is gone. Instead the player can advance at his/her own pace.

– Gil was utterly broken when Nasu test-played the game (to the point that Gil was described as “Hax” mode on the Servant selection screen). He actually doesn’t know if they’re going to adjust the power balance or just stick with it. Gil belongs to no class because Nasu, after pondering what class to put him in, decided that “there’s no need to constrain [Gil] like that anymore.”

– BB “is not as bad a person as she seems.” He wanted to take her in a different direction from yandere Dark Sakura; instead, BB is the “Koakuma (Impish) Kouhai.”

– Jinako was actually a request from the staff; they wanted a “NEET girl.” They already had the illustration done, so he took it from there.

– Otherwise, he has had far more free rein with CCC than Extra and was pretty much able to write whatever he pleased.

– Nasu says that this is more or less the finale for Fate, at least from him.

Re: what’s the story like this time?

Right in the middle of the Holy Grail War, Rin suddenly declares herself the queen of the moon, and makes her own empire on the backside of the moon. What an Idiot (laugh). And so in order to escape Rin’s selfish world and return to the HGW, the Masters and Servants gang up to stand against her.

So much excitement!
