by Phil Wheat

SEGA have today announced a partnership with Japanese video game developers Ecole and French Bread to bring Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax to the West for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in 2015. For those unaware of the title, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is a 2D crossover fighting game featuring popular characters from Japanese novels published under the Dengeki Bunko label.

The Dengeki Bunko collection boasts a vast array of beloved characters who lend themselves flawlessly to this highly balanced, easy-to-learn, high-action 2D fighting game. In Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax players attack, guard, and take damage in order to build their Climax Meter, allowing them to execute moves which recreate highlight scenes from the original novels, even adding specially arranged animations for characters who do not fight in the original works. The game includes characters from numerous Dengeki Bunko works alongside several fan-favorite SEGA characters brought together in SEGA-themed environments.

Playable characters include Asuna from Sword Art Online or Kuroyukihime from Accel World and support characters like Touma Kamijou from A Certain Magical Index or Izaya Orihara from Durarara!!, along with Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter and Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles who join the battle as unlockable playable characters in Versus and Online multiplayer modes along with their support character counterparts Pai Chan and Alicia Melchiott.

Says John Cheng, President and COO, SEGA of America:

With controls skillfully adapted to fit each playable character, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is simultaneously easy to learn and a challenge to master. We are excited to work with Ecole and French Bread to bring this beautiful high-action game to the West.

The game will be available at retail across the US and Canada, whilst Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax will be available in Europe as a digital-only release (boooo!).
