Fate/Extra CCC is a sequel and companion game for Fate/Extra. Originally announced for release in Japan during spring 2012, the game was later pushed to Winter 2012 and then given has a firm release date for February 21, 2013.
The game is set after a failed Holy Grail War; the story is a not a direct continuation of Extra, but something more similar to a Sakura route like the Rin and Rani routes of Extra. Alternately, given the stated tone of the sequel, it has been described as a kind of "Heaven's Feel" route for the setting.
Shifting the stage of the fight from the "near side" of the moon where Extra took place, CCC has been described as taking place on the "far side" (Sakura's Labyrinth). The setting is similar, but a fatal error has occurred in the Moon Cell ultra-computer that generated the virtual world seen in Extra.
The state of the world itself has mutated into a collapsed Holy Grail War where the Serial Phantasm has failed and there is no longer a structured system of battle, and the key to everything is a girl known as Sakura. It is an "obscene, voluptuous story" about “girl’s passion” and a "love poem that scorches the moon".
The Protagonist, who can be male or female, from the first game will return as the main character, and Saber, Caster, and Archer will return as the selectable Servants. Both genders of the Protagonist and each Servant will have an alternate costume, which includes Saber's "Saber Bride" costume, that can be chosen for them to wear instead of their original attire.
Sakura, originally a trivial NPC character in Fate/Extra, will have a tremendously larger role in the new game. A number of supporting characters return, albeit in slighter different roles. Rin appears in the game as a magician rather than a hacker while Shinji is a skilled hacker who is working with the student council on a way to escape. Leo and his servant also reappear in the game with the intention of attempting to escape. Julius and Rani VIII been shown to reappear in this game but their roles have yet to be expanded on.
New characters in the game will include two new unnamed female characters joining the cast: the "Mysterious Black Magus", who greatly resembles Sakura, and "Strange Tail Girl", an enemy Servant with a personality similar to Luvia. She wields a spear weapon in the screenshots, suggesting she could be of the Lancer Class Servant. Gilgamesh is also featured as a new selectable Servant.
