Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] is a stylish 2D fighting game set to bring explosive effects and fast-paced fighting, with a combat system that is easy to pick up but difficult to master.

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!

A multitude of game modes are included: Versus, Arcade, Score Attack, Time Attack, Survival, Training, Gallery, and an Online Mode!
