Under Night In-Birth II Sys:Celes Launches Next Year
Arc System Works and developer French-Bread are working on Under Night In-Birth II Sys:Celes, the next entry in the Under Night series, which is set to launch next year.
It serves as a sequel to Under Night In-Birth and is the final chapter of the Hollow Night storyline that began with the original series released over a decade ago.
Under Night In-Birth II Sys:Celes is told as a visual novel. It brings an original addition to the fighting genre as it tells a climactic tale of surviving the Hollow Night while battling against multiple enemies in engaging environments. The developer says over 21 returning characters and new In-Births are joining the roster.
Players take the role of high school youth and story protagonist Hyde as he encounters the mysterious girl, Linne, prompting his inner EXS powers to suddenly awaken. The two band together in a gruelling struggle to defeat the fearsome and so-called strongest user of all, Paradox. However, an enigmatic force known as Kuon the Aeon appears and crushes the two victors, proclaiming his advent of the world’s end. This leads to Linne’s disappearance, where Hyde, now determined to save their world from Kuon, ventures alone into the Night.
Under Night In-Birth II Sys:Celes launches on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC in 2024 with rollback netcode and several languages.
