"As fans of Under-Night ourselves, we've paid great attention to detail, and we know other fans will find a lot to love in these games."
ALBUQUERQUE, NM, January 25, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Level 99 Games, acclaimed publisher of video-game-inspired board and card games, today announced plans to release a card game featuring the characters from the hit fighting game, Under Night In-Birth™️.
Under Night In-Birth is a series of fighting games created by Soft Circle French Bread and published by Arc System Works. In the game, players take on the role of humans with unique powers who gather to battle monsters and others like them in a monthly event called the 'Hollow Night'.
In the card game, players will be able to choose from a roster of Under Night In-Birth's nineteen original fighters, each with their own complete deck of cards, special abilities, and fighting style based upon the video games. Players duel on a linear stage, trading attacks in a fast-paced battle until only one remains standing.
The Under Night In-Birth card game is part of Level 99 Games's Exceed Fighting System, which allows fighters from various video game universes to battle one another. Other entries in the series introduce fighters from BlazBlue, Street Fighter, Shovel Knight, and Dead Cells. All of the games are cross-compatible.

As fans of Under-Night ourselves, we've paid great attention to detail, and we know other fans will find a lot to love in these games."
The line will consist of 5 core products, one featuring 2 fighters, and four more featuring 4 fighters each, all starter sets which new players can use to jump right into the game. An additional single-fighter expansion box features Londrekia, the last fighter added to the video game with the release of Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r].
