Video Game: Under Night In-Birth

Thousand night, Recurrence night, Reverie and Invite.
and...[7days Immortal] Unreal BLACK THINGS.
The deep darkness of the hollow night. New shells of incarnation alight.
One swing of a sword. Sinuous white snake. Savage fangs of the beast.
Tonight, the deepest night. Blessing for all who confronts...
