Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] keeps going strong!

If you’re looking for a big tournament after Evo, Red Bull has got just the thing for you. Last week the energy drink manufacturer and Esport sponsor announced their latest tournament, Red Bull Conquest 2019, which will begin late next month and will feature a surprising newcomer to the event, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st].

The tournament will have qualifiers throughout the country with the finals taking place at the home of Red Bull, Santa Monica, Calif.

Returning FGC commentators and personalities Steve ‘Tasty Steve’ Scott, Michael ‘YipeS’ Mendoza, Samantha ‘Persia’ Hancock and Jeremy ‘Vicious’ Lopez will host each of the regional Qualifier events and the National Finals.

The regional tournaments will take place in the following locations at the set dates.

QUALIFIERS:

Orlando – August 24

Chicago – September 21

Philadelphia – September 21

Los Angeles – October 12

Houston – October 12

San Francisco – October 19

Seattle – November 9

Minneapolis – November 9

Finals: Santa Monica – November 23-24

On top of being featured at Evo 2019, it’s wonderful to see UNIST get this kind of support, especially considering the original game was released in 2012. And with Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late [cl-r] possibly around the corner, it seems the title’s success is just getting started.
