Finally, the game with the ridiculous name is on a platform that happens when water gets hot.

Arc System Works announced today that the most recent installment in the Under Night franchise, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st], is now available to download on Steam. The game previously arrived on PS3, PS4 and Vita in February of this year, and is a port of the arcade game that was released in Japan in 2015.

The game's publisher didn't have much to say about it, but did share this list of features:

  • FANTASY LIGHT NOVEL STORY TELLING
    The mystery of the Hollow Night is unfolding before you. At the center lies the Abyss, an unimaginable and uncontrolled phenomenon that threatens all. Experience the full story of Under Night

  • DIVERSE AND UNIQUE ROSTER
    Pick from one of 20 characters and fight your way through the dangers of the “Hollow Night”. Claim your victory over those who would get in your way

  • ONLINE GAMEPLAY
    Take the fight online in the "NETWORK MODE" and play against other players around the world! Choose from both "RANK MATCH" and "PLAYER MATCH" to find your opponents. There's also a global leader board for players who wish to be in the hall of fame!

  • NEW SYSTEM: CROSS-CAST VEIL OFF
    Activate the new Veil Off mechanic within a combo to send your opponent flying back with a shockwave, allowing for combo extensions! During "Cross-Cast Veil Off", you will have access to special moves such as Infinite Worth even if your EXS is at 100. This gives you the chance to inflict serious damage with your combo!

  • RESPONSIVE AND DEEP MECHANICS
    Experience intuitive and tight 2D fighter controls, with a splash of devastating combos and unique fighting styles to keep your appetite for battle sated!
Perhaps you wonder what sort of machine you'll need to run the game. No ideal configuration was provided in today's press release, but the following minimum requirements were indicated:
  • OS: Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10

  • Processor: Intel Core i5, 2.0 GHz

  • Memory: 2 GB RAM

  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 / Radeon HD 7770

  • DirectX: Version 9.0c

  • Network: Broadband Internet connection

  • Storage: 10 GB available space

  • Additional Notes: Display Resolution 1280x720 and above recommended.
The Under Night series hasn't been around all that long. It made its debut with Under Night: In-Birth in Japanese arcades in 2012, and hasn't been updated all that often since then. Still, it has clearly built an audience for itself. Are you part of that audience?
