Sega announced on Wednesday that it will release its Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax fighting game for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in the West on October 6. The announcement also noted that the game's Western release will also have a "special launch edition" with a soundtrack CD of music from notable Sega composers, including Teruhiko Nakagawa, Naofumi Hataya, Kenichi Tokoi, and Jun Senoue. The special launch edition will only be available for those who pre-order the game, and a limited number of launch retail copies. The European release will be digital-only.
Sega previously streamed the announcement trailer for the game's Western release in January.
The game is a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita port of Sega's arcade fighting game that features characters from ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Bunko light novel titles. Mami Kawada is performing the opening theme song "belief."
The Dream Duel mode that debuts in the home version includes new conversation events and battles. The game is designed so that both new and experienced players can enjoy gameplay. Network mode lets players face off against opponents across the country. Players can use in-game points to customize character colors and unlock special content. The game allows players to save data between the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3.
Publisher ASCII Media Works and game developer Sega announced the original Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax crossover 2D arcade fighting game at the Tokyo Game Show 2013 event. Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax then shipped for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in Japan on November 13.
Sega also announced an updated version of the game titled Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Ignition, and released the game in Japanese arcades on Tuesday. The update includes new characters and systems (such as the new ability to pick two support characters and an "Ignition" system), and re-balance existing characters. Ecole and French Bread again developed the game.
