The Under Night In-Birth series has become famous for its unique GRD mechanics, where players compete to earn GRD resources, while also deciding how to use them in battle. The game also adds new features and characters through upgraded versions.
In addition, French Bread also developed the fighting game Melty Blood: Type Lumina based on the world of Type-Moon’s visual novel Tsukihime -A Piece of Blue Glass Moon. The game launched in 2021 and has since added more DLC characters from the Fate/Grand Order world.
