  • UNI2 has been released.

    UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH II Sys:Celes was released on January 25.

    Thanks a lot to everyone who bought UNI2!

    When the previous cl-r was released, the world was stagnant due to the spread of the new coronavirus; I was disappointed with the start because I thought cl-r would also develop globally.

    But not this time.

    The world is coming alive again. Competitive tournaments are also on the rise. I am very happy about it.

    The reason I make game music now is to connect people with music.
    Today’s video games are not only played by one person. They can be played together by friends in the neighborhood or people in faraway countries.

    I would be happy if my music could be used as an opportunity for people to get to know UNI and MELTY through non-game videos, etc., in order to boost video games.

  • About the start of the open beta test and the music of UNI2.

    The open beta test of UNI2 has started on the 17th and will last until 23:00 PST on the 19th.

    The character BGM of UNI2 has been remixed. I did not change the image of the original song much, but added new developments. We used to make each song approximately 90 to 120 seconds in length, but after looking at the trend of game time, we decided that we could keep the image of the song even if it was a little longer.

    We hope you enjoy the new UNI music.

    Since this is an open beta version, we are sure there will be many bugs. Please let us know through surveys and other means. French bread will make UNI2 even better.

    UNI2 is a fighting game that is difficult to improve. That’s what makes it fun.

    However, the fact that it is difficult to improve means that it is hard for beginners to win. I would like to ask all advanced players to teach beginners how to play UNI2.

    I think the beauty of fighting games is the community.

    I used to enjoy playing fighting games every day with my friends in the arcade community. I know how fun it was, and that is why I am still involved in the production of fighting games.

    I hope that through UNI2, people around the world will be able to communicate with each other deeply and happily across borders.

    UNI2 has just begun. I would like to continue to create UNI2 together with fans.

  • I participated in a Street fighter 6 tournament.

    I participated in a local SF6 tournament. The character used was Zangief.

    There were about 60 participants. I lost to Ken in the 3rd round and finished in the top 8. I enjoyed it very much.

    I like to value small gaming events, and I heard that EVO was also a small tournament at first.
    I hope to see more and more of these small gaming competitions around the world.

    UNI and MB will also do their best to make the event enjoyable.

  • I am studying English.

    The first Melty Blood was released in 2003.
    At that time, it was a “doujin” game, a game known only to enthusiasts.
    Later, Melty Blood became available in game arcades.
    A PlayStation 2 version was also released.

    Melty Blood, a game originally known only to enthusiasts, is now gaining more and more recognition.

    Then, Melty Blood fans began to appear overseas as well.

    Until then, I thought that if I could make an interesting game, that would be enough.

    But if there were Melty Blood fans overseas, I thought that Melty Blood would be more interesting in a world where people from many countries could communicate with each other through Melty Blood.

    UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH was also released, and it has been 11 years since its release.

    UNI2 will be released next year.

    I would like to see a world where many gamers interact with more French-Bread games.

    That’s why I’m studying English little by little.

    I’m using a translation app now, but I hope to be able to communicate with everyone directly someday.

  • My friends picture

    Lately, I have been enjoying taking pictures of myself with pictures and dolls from games and cartoons in the city.

    In the past, Japan did not have so many anime and game pictures and dolls in the streets.

    However, the generation that enjoyed games and anime as children have grown up, and now there are many pictures of games and anime decorating the streets.

    Now tourists from overseas also enjoy Japanese game/anime pictures and dolls. That makes me very happy.

    Someday, I hope to have dolls of UNI2 characters somewhere as well.
