“The dev team has spent a lot of time rebalancing and perfecting the game for this release, and we’re excited for fans to experience this new edition,” said Akibo Shieh, Founder and CEO of Aksys Games. “Gamers who appreciate ‘real’ 2D fighters and anime fans will also enjoy discovering this unique series for the first time.”
In Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st], 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 20 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 gamefeatures 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!
