Location tests for Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] are well under way in Japan, and players have been able to test out the new changes to the game as well as get their hands on Phonon, the latest addition to the roster.
Many players have been clamoring to know more about the recently revealed character, but with videos from these public showings hard to come by, very little visual data of this arcade-exclusive cast member has been available. Luckily, Japanese publication Dengeki was allowed to record a sizable amount of footage for us to get a glimpse of what the new girl has to offer.
This is obviously still a test build of the game, but it gives us a pretty good picture of how Phonon will play. She has the large, screen-covering normals that you’d come to expect and want from a character in this series, and she can crack her whip to create projectiles and gain even more screen control. The player in the video above also shows off some of her basic cancel and special move options, as well as a couple of simple combo routes.
All in all, Phonon is shaping up to be a solid addition to Under Night’s playable cast. We’re sure to hear more about the game as location tests continue throughout the weekend, so stay tuned..
