Earlier this year, I watched through the three currently available versions of the Fate/Stay Night series. It was pretty interesting throughout, and kept my attention (Rin is best girl), but each “season” was littered with issues. A stylish and fun series with the kind of problems that wouldn’t deter enjoyment unless you spent a lot of time with it.
And that’s basically Fate/Stay Extella: The Umbral Star in a nutshell. With its Nintendo Switch port, it’s built perfectly for short bursts. But once you really sit with it, the flaws in the facade begin to show.
