The spectacularly named Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st], a fighting game published by the talented Arc System Works, is out today.
The Missing Link: Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st]
Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st] is developed by French Bread, the creators of Melty Blood, a classic fighting game that’s been a staple of Japanese arcades for years, and is often considered the missing link between traditional 2D fighter gameplay and the over-the-top madness of anime fighters:
Taking place in a fictional modern-day Japan, the game presents a world to us where a mysterious event called ‘Hollow Night’ occurs and spreads terror on a monthly basis.
“Encounter shadowy organizations who have their own plans regarding the mysterious events.”
During the Hollow Night, shadowy creatures called ‘Voids’ appear and attack innocent people from the shadows. Survivors of these attacks sometimes develop special abilities and become known as an ‘In-Birth’.
If that sounds of interest, you can pick up Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st] for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and even PlayStation Vita right now.
