Get the information below.
■ New Character: Enkidu
Enkidu (voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi)
A master of ancient martial arts with a muscular body, Enkidu is playable in Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] for the first time.
Enkidu is a “play feel” character with simple controls and almost no practice of difficult consecutive techniques necessary. Additionally, as a system unique to Enkidu, he has an effect called “Havoc,” which improves the capabilities of his techniques when attacking the enemy off guard.
Enkidu’s Battle Style
—Special Move: “Sankaishou”
Enkidu drives at the enemy while unleashing an attack from his palms. With additional input, it can become a three-stage attack.
—Special Move: “Tenritsu Nokamae
Parries the enemy’s attack and deals damage.
—Infinite Worth: “Rasen Soushouda”
Builds up power in both arms and releases it all at once near the enemy to deal big damage.
—Infinite Worth EXS: “Karuma Noman: Meigoku Hakenshou”
The power engraved onto Enkidu’s arms awakens, and he fires a strong shock that destroys his manifestation.
Enikidu is a member of Amnesia, which is led by Hilda. However, he aims for Gordeau with his equally powerful “greed” and has a tendency to do anything he can to fight against tough fighters. Though his power of “manifestation” is weak, he confronts various enemies in that body.
