UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late[st] (アンダーナイトインヴァース エクセレイト エスト), usually shortened to UNIst, is the second major revision of UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH, featuring adding new balance changes, mechanics, and characters. It released in arcades on July 23rd 2015, and was then ported to consoles two years later on July 20th 2017 in Japan, and February 9th 2018 in western regions. Exe:Late[st] was then released on Steam on August 20th of that same year.


Exe:Late[st] added a new Veil-Off mechanic called Cross Cast Veil Off, a new VO that can be used during combos, allowing combos to be further extended. The update also brought previously console-exclusive characters Nanase and Byakuya to the arcades, as well as adding two brand new characters: Phonon and Mika.

The console release added a large amount of new content. Two new characters were added in the forms of Enkidu and Wagner. The console release also added new modes, such as Chronicle Mode: An extensive visual novel Story Mode that acts as a prequel to the main Arcade story, detailing the motives, backgrounds and origins of the main playable cast in the span of a year leading up to the main story, as well as an expansive tutorial that teaches players the basics of UNI, and a Mission Mode that allows players to practice specific character combos, as well as giving short rundowns of how a character plays.


May 15th 2015, Arc System Works announces location tests for a brand-new build of the game. The new characters added in the previous console version, Nanase and Byakuya, were finally being added into the arcades. The game then launched late July.

About a year later, FRENCH-BREAD reveals new update featuring re-balancing of the battle system and addition of Mika.

On April 18th 2017, Famitsu announced that Exe:Late[st] will be released for the consoles of Playstation family on July 27th 2017.

On July 1st 2017, Aksys Games announced that they will localize the game and aim to release it during Q4 2017. However, on November 21st Aksys Games announced that Exe:Late[st] will release in United States on February 9th 2018.

The PS4 version of the game sold 5013 copies on its launch week in Japan [1]. The PS3 version didn't rank. Neither version ranked on the Media Create lists on the second week. The download version of the game managed to rank high on the PSN Sales Ranking on the launch day. [2]

On July 15th 2018, FRENCH-BREAD announced that Exe:Late[st] was released on Steam on August 21st, with the US and EU having the game released a day earlier on August 20th.

On November 11, 2018, FRENCH-BREAD announced the future new contents will be coming to this game. After February 26, 2019 where Exe:Late[st] became the very first FRENCH-BREAD game to be part of the international game tournament, such as EVO 2019, its final update, Exe:Late [cl-r] was announced at August 4, 2019 for Early 2020 release.
