The news came at the end of the Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] finals at EVO 2019. The series has always had a cult following, before bursting into the mainstream at EVO 2019. You can learn a bit more about the franchise below:
In Under Night In-Birth, 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 a cast of 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 game features 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!
Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] is expected to release for PS4 in early 2020.
