Brett Young, fighting game commentator, says, “Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] is an exciting addition that continues the trend of excellent, thoughtful rebalancing… Londreika fits well with the cast as a new addition to the roster—his toolset seems well-fitted within the game’s mechanics, while having some unique options and looking cool while he’s at it.”
“Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] features some amazing changes,” commented professional gamer Keenan “Kizzie Kay” Kizzie. “It feels like a whole new “UNI” game with the adjustment to the system. I really like the new character Londrekia so far, and the aesthetics in “UNI” always go above expectations.”
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 affected by the Hollow Night is beset by shadowy monsters-known as “Voids”-who feed off of a power called “Existence.” Most humans don’t possess the ability to see or come in contact with Voids, and therefore remain safe. You, however, are not so lucky. As one of a cast of unique characters, players fight their way through the dangers of the Hollow Night and defeat those who would try to get in your way. The game features classic 2D anime fighter controls with a splash of devastating combos and unique fighting styles sure to keep your appetite for battle sated. A fight is more than just pressing buttons.
The ESRB has rated Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] T for Teen.
