Dengeki confirmed on Thursday that Ro-Kyu-Bu! basketball player Tomoka Minato (voiced by Kana Hanazawa) is joining the roster of Sega and ASCII Media Works' upcoming anime-based fighting game Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax. In addition, Tomoka's four teammates — Maho Misawa (Yuka Iguchi), Saki Nagatsuka (Yōko Hikasa), Hinata Hakamada (Yui Ogura), and Airi Kashii (Rina Hidaka) — will team up to assist her against opponents in battle.
Iguchi will also voice "Innocent Charm" (Hinata no Maboroshi) from Ro-Kyu-Bu! as one of five new support characters.
The other new support characters are:
Kino (Aya Hisakawa instead of Ai Maeda) from Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World
Mashiro Shiina (Ai Kayano) from The Pet Girl of Sakurasou
Erio Tōwa (Asuka Ōgame) from Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl (Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko)
The game already includes Dengeki Bunko light novel characters Asuna and Leafa (Sword Art Online), Shana and Wilhelmina (Shakugan no Shana), Mikoto Misaka and Tōma Kamijō (A Certain Magical Index), Kirino Kōsaka and Kuroneko (Oreimo), Shizuo and Celty (Durarara!!), Kuroyukihime and Haruyuki (Accel World), Holo (Spice and Wolf), Boogiepop (Boogiepop Phantom), and Sadao Maō (The Devil Is a Part-Timer).
Akira of the Virtua Fighter fighting game will appear as a boss, and the game will have a Sonic the Hedgehog stage.
Publisher ASCII Media Works and game developer Sega announced Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, their crossover 2D fighting game, in September 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 game is slated for Japanese arcades this spring.
