Arc System Works has listed Under Night In-Birth Exe Late on the PC platform on Steam. Despite being an outdated game, this finishes up their list of promised titles for the PC platform. With the quality of their Steam releases, this should be plenty of practice for Arc System Works in porting the recent versions of their fighting games on PC. Will Arc System Works finally release titles like Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator, Blazblue Central Fiction, and Under Night In-Birth Exe Late[st] on Steam?
As seen on Under Night In-Birth Exe Late?s Steam page, the game is finally arriving on PC on July 13. ?Despite being an Arc System Works title, Under Night In-Birth was actually developed by French Bread, which also worked on the Melty Blood fighting game also released on Steam. This fighting game is a more niche title than Blazblue or Guilty Gear from Arc System Works itself.
According to an announcement from Arc System Works last year, the company?s five games will be available on the PC platform on Steam in Summer 2016. Under Night In-Birth Exe Late is actually the last of the promised games. Technically, these games allow the PC players to catch up with the recent versions of ?the Arc System Works? fighting games, but they?re not exactly as appetizing as they?re outdated versions of Blazblue and Guilty Gear Xrd. Melty Blood is definitely a decent pick due to its translated version, ?and it will now have a more visible multiplayer server of its own on Steam. Meanwhile, the availability of the latest version of Under Night In-Birth on consoles is yet to be announced.
Perhaps Arc System Works wants to try releasing more of their recent games on the PC but finds it difficult due to the platform?s unstandardized specs. Despite having characters that are significantly more nimble than those in Street Fighter 5 and Mortal Kombat X, these ?Anime fighting games? still rely on precise timing for its combos, and possible frame drops and variable lag on a minimum-specs PC can ruin the experience for the player. After clearing their Summer 2016 list of releases, Arc System Works should have gathered enough experience and data of PC releases to further improve their chances at higher player demographics.
