Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] is a super slick, fast-paced fighter that manages to successfully straddle the line between being instantly accessible and welcoming for newcomers and in-depth enough to satisfy hardcore fight fans.
French Bread and Arc System Works' fighting game Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] is brilliant, but may deter some with its high learning curve.
Even though very little has changed in Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] besides the finer points, it makes for a worthwhile experience for both sides. Newcomers have plenty of offline modes to test their skills or play around and a rather robust training system that genuinely wants to help you. Returning or skilled players will likely enjoy the new character and find new possibilities with the changes. Given current owners can simply upgrade it will probably be worth it, especially if you're a fan of the franchise.
The combat mechanics are deep and extremely interesting to master, but this new release doesn't offer enough additions to the ones who already bought Exe: Late[st].

Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] is a worthy update to a game with a rich pedigree in the fighting game space.
For those who have never played Under Night In-Birth, this version is the definitive version to buy. UNICLR is an incredible anime fighting game that has held up well over the years. The online mode isn't as active as one might wish, but the story, visuals, game modes, and gameplay are fantastic. I recommend this to new players and veterans of fighting games alike.
As someone who's experienced and loves faster-paced fighting games, this is an easy win and Under Night's formula tweaks help keep just different enough you feel like you're mastering a weapon. However, this isn't for everyone and if you're after something more feature complete like a proper story mode.
Under Night In-Birth Exe Late: [cl-r] as a 2D fighting game is a decent product and it has enough content to offer the veterans of this genre. However, it cannot compete with the more modern and better fighting games that were released recently

Stylish, methodical, and encouraging attacking gameplay, this latest Under Night In-Birth title is as exciting as always, and Switch owners that have yet to try the series out are in for a treat, with plenty of modes, a lengthy visual novel chronicle, online play, and a varied cast of characters. Despite the array of balance and move tweaks, though, this just isn't enough of an improvement over the previous title, with only one extra character being introduced. This is still a top anime fighter, though, and a good alternative to BlazBlue.
It's oozing with style, it's shockingly accessible, and the back-and-forth exchanges prompted by the Grind Grid system make for non-stop excitement in every match. There's even a fifteen hour visual novel experience in the Chronicles mode that helps flesh out the world and characters of Under Night In-Birth, though personally I think I'm more afraid of understanding all the insane proper nouns in the plot summary than I am excited. This was a worthy addition to both the EVO lineup and the Switch lineup, and there's nothing I want more now than to see the game finally reach the mainstream success it deserves.
Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[cl-r] simply puts up a bloody good fight and that’s all you can ask for. The cavalcade of modes in which to sink your teeth into is just the icing on an already delicious cake.
If you've never played it before, Under Night In-Birth, [cl-r] is the best version to be bought of an excellent 2D fighting game. The free update is aimed at long-time fans with a new balance and new attacks. The new characters are a great addition to the roster and recommended to those that like agile characters. If you have already tried previous versions of the game, this next update doesn't bring anything new that will change any opinion.

It's certainly going to be a long and tricky climb of proficiency to be able to play mind-games with a human opponent, the combo system has been simplified and has enough single player content to allow new comers to the fighting game genre to enjoy this title. The tutorial actually teaches the basic fundamentals of a 2D fighting game and some insights on what the opponents may think and react to your certain actions. It is a good entry level fighting game which will also help you transition into understanding and playing other fighting game titles.

Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late [cl-r] is the same as always in the saga, but with a new character and a balance of the characters on-line. It is fluid and addictive, but it can end tiring us quickly.

By no means does Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] bring anything truly revolutionary to the series or even the fighting genre at this point, but it is slick, stylized and plays wonderfully. Fans of the one-on-one fighting genre should find plenty to like here, and this is about as accessible of a new fighter as you will find that on the market, while still having plenty of depth for those who really want to delve in and learn the characters.
