Aksys Games, Arc System Works, and French-Bread announced on Thursday that the Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late[cl-r] fighting game will launch for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in early 2020.
The game is the latest entry in the Under Night In-Birth 2D fighting game franchise. French-Bread is developing the game with "nearly a thousand balance changes," new moves, and a new playable character (seen right).
Aksys Games will release the game in North America. The company describes the franchise's story:
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!
