Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] will launch physically and digitally for PlayStation 4, and digitally for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in Europe on February 9, 2018, publisher PQube announced.
In North America, the game is planned for release in late 2017 under publisher Aksys Games. However, the European release was previously planned for Q4 2017, so it is possible the North American release has also been delayed.
Rice Digital will sell an exclusive “End of Dawn” collector’s edition (pictured) for £54.99, which includes the PlayStation 4 version of the game, a 128-page paperback art book, official soundtrack CD, set of 20 badges, and collector’s presentation box.
