The Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax 2D crossover fighting game will feature Shizuo Heiwajima from Ryohgo Narita and Suzuhito Yasuda's Durarara!! light novel series and Kuroyukihime from Reki Kawahara's Accel World light novel series as playable characters. In addition, production on a console or portable version has been green-lit, along with the previously unveiled arcade version. The Dengeki Bunko Fall Festival 2013 event in Akihabara, Tokyo made the announcements on Sunday.
A promotional video featuring previously announced Magical Index and Oreimo characters debuted at Sunday's event:
These characters appeared with previously revealed characters at the demo stations at the “Dengeki Bunko Autumn Festival 2013” event at the Akihabara UDX & Belle Salle in Tokyo on Sunday. Two more location test units will be installed in Club Sega Shinjuku West Exit and Sega Akihabara Building No. 1 from October 11 to 13.
Mikoto Misaka from Kazuma Kamachi's A Certain Magical Index, light novel series, Kirino Kōsaka from Tsukasa Fushimi's Oreimo light novel series, Asuna from Reki Kawahara's Sword Art Online light novel series, and Shana from Yashichiro Takahashi's Shakugan no Shana light novel series were already announced as playable characters with A Certain Magical Index's Tōma Kamijō, Oreimo's Kuroneko, Shakugan no Shana's Wilhelmina, and Sword Art Online's Leafa as support characters.
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.
The side-scrolling action game is the fourth collaboration between publisher ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Bunko imprint and Sega, and it marks Dengeki Bunko's 20th anniversary.
