Under Night 2 Smart Steer Changes Coming

One of the bigger new features detailed so far for the Under Night sequel is the changes to Smart Steer. This is a system that deals with auto-combos. It’s getting changes in the new game to make it a bit easier to use. When an attack hits, you can use A+B to do a special move that simply connects into a combo.

This change to Under Night 2 Smart Steer will help to open up the combo system in the game. Most of the best fighting games these days have made steps to make combos a bit easier to use. Street Fighter 6 has simple controls and other games are looking into this too. Under Night In-Birth 2 changes will simply input combos, great for a game that’s been a bit more specialist in the past.
