A side effect of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle‘s release is renewed interest in French Bread’s Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st]. Between the new visibility of UNIST characters and the dedication of its scene, the game is gaining more momentum and players — evidenced by, if nothing else, this announcement from AnimEVO tournament organizer DarylBunao:
After some talking with EVO staff, I can happily announced that UNIst will be given EVO stream time. More details to come. Until then, please register for UNIst and 25 other anime games at @Anime_EVO.

Looks like there will be some full-screen footsies on the Evo side event stream! This isn’t much of a surprise for the anime fighter with the — at the time of this writing — 2nd most entrants at AnimEVO (only behind the universally-popular Windjammers). Or the anime fighter that’s received consistent vocal support from the likes of James Chen.
It’s only up from here, you wonderful, weirdly-named game, you.
