I really hope that there's going to be a version on consoles or portables because I would definitely want to import this.

This is a game that has the usual "licensing hell" situation and even if it becomes a DLC console game for the Japanese release, don't bother holding your breath for an official out of Japan release.

People thought the same thing about Aquapazza, but that made it over here. I'm not giving up hope.

Pretty sure all the rights are owned by Dengeki Bunko considering this is Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax and includes characters from their books. I don't see the licensing hell at all, the issue is instead one of profitability. It could appeal to anime fans enough for an Operation Rainfall type pick up.

I don't see why that would matter... they only have the rights to publish the LNs or release the anime. Dengeki still owns the characters and lesser companies can't tell them what they can or can't do with their characters.

FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU!! Why are all the good characters support in this game! I would rather play as Touma and Boogiepop than the playable characters they've shown so far. And while I'm at it, who thought Asuna was a better choice than Kirito? I don't even like SAO and I'm reeling. Whoever chose the roster in this game is really bad at his job......Despite this, I'll still buy it. Wink

Asuna is in over Kirito because this game is basically Waifu Fighter: Dengeki Style. Same reason why Sadao is only support.

If Emi is Hataraku's playable rep I will flip a goddamn table.

If Holo is the support to anyone but Lawrence everything is wrong in this world.

Also I'm disappointed they didn't go with her wolf form.
