Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] Heads to Europe Later in 2017

PQube is bringing Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] to Europe.

The game will launch across PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita sometime in Q4 of this year in Europe. The PlayStation 4 version is the only one to get a retail release. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the over-the-top anime-fighter.

A North American release is set for sometime later this year as well.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via PQube:


Widely considered the missing link between traditional 2D fighter gameplay and the over-the-top craziness of ‘anime’ fighters, UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late[st] is the new fighting game by developer French Bread, creators of Melty Blood, the cult-classic fighting game that’s been a staple of Japanese arcades for years.

UNDER-NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late[st] takes place in a fictional modern-day Japan, where a mysterious event called Hollow Night occurs on a monthly basis. During the Hollow Night, shadowy creatures called Voids appear and attack innocent people. Survivors of these attacks sometimes develop special abilities and become known as an In-Birth. The game follows a young man named Hyde, a survivor of one of these attacks, as he becomes involved in the goings-on around the Hollow Night phenomenon.

Key Features:

  • New characters – Phonon, Mika, Enkidu and Wagner join the battle!
  • New Stages – 4 new stages to do battle on, Cafeteria, Children’s Playground, Momiji Alley and the Cathedral of the Far East.
  • Re-balanced gameplay – Old favourites have new abilities and new gameplay elements have been added, including the ‘Veil Off’ system that opens up new combo opportunities.
  • Combo Challenge Mode – Learn new combos and take on some of the hardest challenges in the game.
  • Tutorial Mode – An expansive tutorial mode has been added to the game that teaches all the skills necessary to level up your game.
  • Chronicle Mode – Discover the narrative of UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late[st] in a dedicated story mode experience.

    Good on PQube for bringing it over. They are one of my favourite publishers. I’ll likely get the PS4 physical edition.

    I’ll probably get the NA version for ps4 for next year. I don’t play fighting games often, but after watching some gameplay, this game looks pretty fun, even if I will most likely suck at it. When it comes to fighting games, my memory sucks and I’m always either too slow or mess up putting in button combos for moves. :p

    “Chronicle Mode – Discover the narrative of UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late[st] in a dedicated story mode experience.”

    Wait, is this what I think it is? Is this a complete single player campaign instead of only having the Arcade Mode like the original?
