In Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st], Yuzuriha has always been regarded as one of the more difficult characters to master. Well, fear not — for if I have learned to play her to some degree, so can you! Some say that she’s slightly more accessible in Late[st], the newly released console update. Whether or not you’ll master her is fine; what’s more important is that you’ll play the coolest character in the roster.

We have a translated version of a Yuzuriha combo guide via Evernote, written by probably the most famous Yuzuriha player in Japan, Kure. The guide begins with explaining certain notation and a couple of good things to know in order to practice Yuzuriha combos effectively. Then, it delves into various starters at portions of the screen; for instance, midscreen A and B starters, then throw and corner sequences. There are useful explanations throughout.

If you’re more of a visual learner, there are some UNIST Yuzuriha videos as well:

If you know nothing about Yuzuriha and need an overview, check out the subbed video tutorial below, though it is a little outdated. The concepts remain the same.
