Well if the foxgirl happens to be Kohaku, then I would kind of see her as Caster since her alter ego goes by the name Magical Amber. Although I do prefer to see our Caster back in action some more as well here, and of course our dear Rider as well. Although one can only hope on what they will do for this game since we don't have much to go on at this moment.

As for Saber, it's because she's not wearing her armor and she has a see-through skirt. If she had her armor on you couldn't tell that she had a bust to begin with. As for the see-through skirt, I think someone wanted to have an excuse for pantyshots invovled in the game, and Saber was it for the job, I'll bet.

Maybe I got used too much on the usual Saber. But my oppinion is still that this Saber is not very good :(

Looks like Fate/EXTRA is going to be shipping with it's own exclusive figma, ala Saber Lily. Anyone have an opinion on what to call this version of Saber? I'm tempted to go with Saber Floozy. The fifth picture down in that article shows a rather, um, oddly placed hole in the back of the dress that is displaying what I can only refer to as butt cleavage.

*Edit* I take it back, my vote goes for Saber Wench. Those shoulder pips somehow give her a nautical feel

So, a lascivious young female servant..... "I know how to please men!" Hmmm! Now, why would anyone not like that? ;) I think that actually describes Saber pretty well!

Okay, getting (partially) serious, I didn't know about the "butt cleavage" she now sports and it does make me wonder how much will the developers change the designs from the original installment to this new "Extra" that is apparently more interested in selling dem toys than producing a good game. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not gonna get all puritan saying that they are changing the source, which they are, since that would be hypocritical. But the design certainly looks odd considering we are dealing with what originally tried to pass for a reverse-trap.

Think about it, if Saber was surrounded by people that were so easily fooled into thinking that a curvy woman that actually wore clothes that accentuated her attractiveness was a boy, she would have lost the country n times over! That, or being a boy during that period in England was a real trouble.

All in all, I like the design but I find it stupidly silly. But hey, there are tons of new anime that caters to the otaku community more than the general audience, these guys are just getting in the "get cash selling trinkets to the otakus instead of producing real quality games/anime/merchandise"-bandwagon. That's a business they run.

The fox girl is Caster. And the woman on one Short Movie is Rider (the one with the Squall-like Scar) ^^

It just raises the Question - wtf is wrong with them ?! A Rider with canons ?? What comes next ? I just wonder how they will ruin Berserker. He will probably be then Long-John-Silver.

New Caster.... New Rider....
Those news make me a very sad panda...
The only good thing this.... thing has going for it is the boobalicious Saber, but other than that..... I am dissapoint.

I agree that things are rather wrong with this... thing?

I think I don't even want this thing to be good 'cause of its major changes in the story lol

Well for all we know this could be something around the line of a VR setup that was created due to Shirou's incompitence of a Magus.

The new lancer reminds me of Raiden in metal gear solid 2. That is a bad signal.

I am not a fan of the art. Some of the characters look really weird since they kinda look like they came out of a shoujo manga (I can imagine a background of flowers behind some of the profile pictures).

As for the story, I don't really care if they butcher the story or not because I doubt that this will be considered as canon in the FSN world.

I don't know if anyone has checked the Fate/Extra site in a while, but there have been quite a few updates with many short videos. Though the text was going too quick for me to really get, the words "program," "system," and "circuit" were mentioned quite a bit in the same conversation. That plus the obviously VR-looking backgrounds in a lot of the scenes and I would say its most probably some sort of VR.

Also, there is one scene where it looks like a VR setting and there are three large glass-looking windows/doors next to each other, then the two on the sides shatter and a pillar of light appears around the middle one. The next shot is in the same area where only that one window/door remains, and suddenly a pillar of light appears close to the camera and Saber Wench (lol) is standing there. It would seem to me that, even though Saber seems to be your servant in all the videos, you have the choice of summoning Saber, Archer, or Caster since those three do not have a master on the site and they are the only three that appear on the top page of the site.

Still not quite sure what I think of this game, especially some of the character designs.
