Under Night In-Birth Gets A Second New Character On PlayStation 3

By Ishaan . June 16, 2014 . 2:00pm

Arc System Works are publishing the upcoming PlayStation 3 version of Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late, a fighting game by French Bread, the developers of Melty Blood. Last month, the publisher revealed a new character for the PS3 version—Nanase—and this morning, they announced another.


Byakuya is a mysterious boy that is operates alongside a girl named Tsukuyomi. Byakuka uses a countless number of black claw-like weapons in battle, which capture and devour the opponent. Arc System Works say he’s using his power to fulfil Tsukuyomi’s wishes, but that the motives of the two are unknown.


Under Night In-Birth will be released in Japan on July 24th. You can find screenshots of Byakuya below.

    Yu Narukami, is that you?!

    Also I guess those rumors about Fillia from Skullgirls being in weren’t true, huh?

    • lunier

      The Fillia picture was the UNiB team congratulating Skull Girls on the arcade release in Japan

      • Steven Hunt

        The SG team has confirmed that they were negotiating a crossover character. But all they said was that they were in talks… no confirmation of anyone actually being in.

    • tvrsteve

      Still holding onto hope due to Yuzuriha’s cameo in one of the Skullgirls stages.

  • IS | 桂木

    This man is a creeper, holy gods

    • Chef Chef

      The only guy who has a persona 4 avatar is not making a yu narukami joke. huh

  • Holy Diver

    So in the end of P4 Arena 2, Yu is going to get possessed by the Malevolent Entity and travels around games?

    • MrTyrant

      I really want this to happen lol

  • Epic Markell Joshua

    Can’t wait to play this.

  • Arcana Drill

    Put some yellow eyes on him… and voila~ P4MC Shadow!

  • Crevox

    gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme

  • MrJechgo

    REAAAAAAAAAAAAALLY hopes it comes to North America, even if it is only as a digital download.

  • AlexanderChoi

    Lol at first thought Yu Narukami was going to be a guest character…oh well

    • Stephen Mc Devitt

      We’ll just call Yu then because F-it!

  • He’s so swag, not even his own series, game and company can contain him from having a crossover.


    It’s not Yu.

  • Cephrien

    — Don’t like ‘im. :I

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. Both of these new characters have pretty simplistic designs, but a rather extravagant weapon to make up for it. Still, a bit more interested in this guy than the girl, if only because his non-fighting partner schtick somewhat reminds me of Slayer. And anything that reminds me of Slayer is a pretty darn neat thing in my mind.

  • Demeanor

    Narukami Yu turned Guze no Tomogara.
    Quick, someone call a Flame Haze! XD

  • Seizui

    Oh nice, an interesting non-female character. Nevertheless, I am will be pleased once this game is available. At least, I think it should come to the US. If not, I’ll have to import it.

  • Dystopiq

    Hopefully it will be region free so I can import it.

    • Sion Cruz

      Always when it comes to PS3.

      • Dystopiq

        Well sometimes companies put a Region lock due to pricing. P4Arena had a region lock so that Japanese players couldn’t buy it cheaper from our region.

        • Sion Cruz

          True, forgot about that. I doubt this one would be region locked though, since it was rumored this would be a digital release in NA. That’s only IF it comes out here.

          Just che k playasia, they have it listed as “Works on all systems sold worldwide.”

    Eight-blades Nanaya, holy shit!
