Aksys Games, Arc System Works, and French Bread have revealed Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r], rebalancing the cult 2D fighting game.
It introduces a new male character – Londrekia – and has been optimized with “nearly a thousand balance changes and new moves.”
In Under Night In-Birth, a mysterious phenomenon known only as “the Hollow Night” has enveloped regions of Japan in darkness for several centuries.
Every area that has been affected by the Hollow Night is beset by shadowy monsters known as Voids, which feed off of a power called Existence.
Most humans do not possess the ability to see or come in contact with Voids, and therefore remain safe. However, you aren’t so lucky.
You must fight your way through the dangers of the Hollow Night and defeat those that stand in your way.
Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] has classic 2D anime fighter controls with devastating combos and unique fighting styles to keep fans of the genre coming back for more.
“The 2D fighting community has been incredibly supportive, and we are as excited about this new chapter in the Under Night In-Birth series as they are,” explains Aksys Games founder and CEO Akibo Shieh.
“With the introduction of a new character, the entire game has been carefully rebalanced and perfected for the greatest possible anime fighting experience to date.”
Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide in early 2020.
