Under Night In-Birth: Exe:Late [cl-r] releases European date and Londrekia trailer

You CAN get the staff

Arc System Works has revealed its western roll-out plan for its upcoming fighter Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late [cl-r]. The pretty anime punch-up – as previously noted – will arrive in North America and Japan on February 20, with European players only having to wait a further day to get their hands on the updated release.

ArcSys also released a trailer for the solitary new star who will be headed to the Under Night roster that day. Londrekia is an aristocratic-looking young member of Ritter Schild, whose prowess in battle is spoken of in hushed whispers. Known as the “Frozen Fang of Eternity,” Londrekia’s attacks have a frosty feel, while his movement has the grace of an ice dancer, not dissimilar to King of Fighters‘ Kula Diamond in his fighting style.

Aside from Londrekia’s appearance, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late [cl-r] also brings with it an overhauled U.I, new mechanics and a huge list of “over 1000” balance tweaks. While not at the forefront of many people’s minds among the Street Fighters and Tekkens of the world, Under Night has a style, presence and fanbase all of its own, who are no doubt eager to get their hands on this updated edition.

Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late [cl-r] launches on PS4 and Nintendo Switch on February 20-21.
