Arc System Works Releases Play Guide for UNI[ST] Location Test

French Bread and publisher Arc System Works have released a PDF play guide for the upcoming location test of the new Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[ST]. The guide features descriptions of the basic systems of the game as well as a move list for every character, including new entry to the series Phonon.

What the guide also does is include details of another new system mechanic coming to UNI[ST]. In addition to the new Cross Cast Veil Off, the game has included First Attack, which will give vorpal to the character that lands the first hit each round. There are also subtle changes to returning characters, such as input changes.

As this does not appear to be a detailed list of patch notes for the new title, it's hard to tell just how many other changes will be in store for each character in UNI[ST]. However, with the location test starting May 22 in Japan, players in the U.S. may not have to wait long to find out.

Super Desperation Radio Episode 412 Archive Online

The latest episode of Super Desperation Radio is now available for watching on IPLAYWINNER'S YouTube channel.

Thefts in the fighting game community have given SDR pause, including the most recent one targeting PandaXGaming. The crew talked about the possible bad precedent the crimes may be setting, and to avoid blaming victims in the aftermath.

SDR also talked about the placement of games on finals day, and asked why many tournaments do not showcase the new or "hot" games when they are released to help viewership. SuperFX also rallied the rest of the cast against the trend of 3/5 games for non-finals matches.

Lastly, the SoCal Regionals announcements left the cast questioning why anyone would want to go to Ontario, California. 

Super Desperation Radio is live every Monday at 6:30 p.m. PST on Twitch and YouTube.

New Details Behind Killer Instinct Season Two's Final Character Aria Revealed, Story Mode Coming in June

The second season of Killer Instinct is concluding very soon with one more character to go.

Teased in the bonus ending of season one, Aria will be the last time-release character for season two. She will be distinct from the rest of the cast as she will bear three selectable drones that give her specific moves. The Booster Drone is based on air supremacy, the Blade Drone utilizes a sword to emphasize ground combat and the Bass Drone is all about projectiles. When not using two of the three drones, Aria can use them as assists.

Along with her benefits, the weekly Textual Stream report reveals her disadvantages. Unlike the rest of the cast who receive a second round after being downed, Aria can be defeated by destroying all three drones. Her health is divided equally by all three drones and when one is destroyed, it's gone for the rest of the match.

Aria currently doesn't have a release date but much like previous characters from season two, expect her to arrive at the end of May or when Story Mode comes in June!
