Aksys Games is stepping up to publish Japanese RPG Fate/Extra
on PSP in North America later this year, following previous publisher Marvelous Entertainment's announcement it would be cutting costs
in 2011. Fate/Extra
is a traditional dungeon-crawler set in the same mystical-high-school universe as the visual novel Fate/stay night
, both from developer Type-Moon.
