In a surprise announcement during today's Nintendo Direct, XSEED revealed the Warriors-style beat-em-up, Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, which released on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita earlier this year will be heading to the Switch on 25th July in North America, and 21st July in Europe.

For those unfamiliar, Fate/Extella is based on the popular Fate/Stay Night anime, which revolves around famous historical figures battling it out. That's an extremely over-simplified version of the plot, but you get the gist. This humble scribe is a big fan of the series, but we'll reserve judgment of the game for a later date.

Whether you love these types of games or not, seeing surprise announcements like this certainly bodes well for Nintendo's third-party offerings on their latest console.
