At the Sega Private Show last week, Melty Blood developers French-Bread and Ecole announced that they will release an updated version of their recent 2D-fighter, Under Night In-Birth. According to 4Gamer, the enhanced version will have a new playable character, balancing adjustments, and a new title called Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late. The original game was released in Japan September 2012 for arcades.
The new playable character for Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late will be Chaos, a shadowy and elusive character from the original game. As he makes his appearance into the fighting roster, various mysteries that he left from the original game will be revealed.
You can see him below:
There will be significant balancing adjustments made on behalf of improving competitive play, which the creators believe is vital to all players’ enjoyment of the game. They are calling it a “mutual” way to “read deeper,” and players of all levels will have to rely on anticipating each others’ movements. Nonetheless, the game inherits the same gameplay style as Melty Blood, making it easy to perform attack combos and special moves.
The game will see improved HD quality visuals, making the sprite art more vibrant and expressive. Even the characters’ facial animations will be visible. There will also be Aime card support, which allows players to save previous data including high-scores and KO rankings.
Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late is due out this summer in Japanese arcades, but it is unknown if the game will have a PC or home console release. French Bread has expressed interest in bringing it overseas.
