Sega began streaming a new promotional video for the upcoming anime-based fighting game, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, on Tuesday. The trailer features six of the game's previously announced characters as they fight in the upcoming 2-D, side-scrolling fighter.
The trailer features each of the character's individual play styles as well as reveals that each of the characters is allowed a supporting character from their respective series. Leafa will support Asuna (Sword Art Online), Wilhelmina will support Shana (Shakugan no Shana), Tōma Kamijō will support MIKOTO Misaka (A Certain Magical Index), Kuroneko will support Kirino Kōsaka (Oreimo), Celty will support Shizuo (Durarara!!), and Haruyuki will support Kuroyukihime (Accel World).
Publisher ASCII Media Works and game developer Sega announced Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, their crossover 2D fighting game, last month at the Tokyo Game Show 2013 event. The game is the fourth collaboration between ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Bunko imprint and Sega, and it marks Dengeki Bunko's 20th anniversary.
The title is a side-scrolling action game featuring such characters as Asuna from Reki Kawahara's Sword Art Online light novel series and Shana from Yashichiro Takahashi's Shakugan no Shana light novel series. The game will use a standard eight-way joystick and four buttons — A (weak attack), B (medium attack), C (strong attack), and D (support, to summon support characters). Players can also dash, back dash, and two levels of jump. A+B or A + B + down will unleash special Impact Skill attacks. Pressing A + B+ C simultaneously will expend one Blast icon for various Blast attacks.
