Torrance, Calif.--January 19, 2018 --Aksys Games, in conjunction with Arc System Works Co., Ltd., is proud to announce that their new game, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st], will be shrouding North America in darkness on February 9th. Developed by acclaimed fighting game studio French Bread, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] is the definitive full-featured version of the popular arcade franchise fighting game, and will be available on the PSTM4 system as well as digitally on the PSTM3 system and the PS Vita system.

"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!

Features of Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st]include:

  • Explore the Unknown - Play through an all-new Chronicle mode and unravel the mystery behind the mysterious Hollow Night.
  • Command the Night - Choose from 20 unique characters, from series veterans like Hyde, Merkava, and Linne, to one of the four newly-introduced characters: Phonon, Mika, Wagner, and Enkidu. Unleash their power to become the ruler of the night!
  • Master the Darkness - Hone your skills in brand new single-player modes, including all-encompassing practical and combat missions that will turn any fledgling into Lord of the Under Night.
  • Devour the Competition - Jump straight into the action and battle it out in local battles or face off against anyone in the world with online multiplayer.
