The game recreates his use of the Dual Blades skill with his Elucidator and Dark Repulser swords from Reki Kawahara's light novel series with Abec's illustrations.

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. Kirito and Tomoka will be among the playable characters on the demos at Sega's booth in the Japan Amusement Expo on February 14 and 15 at Makuhari Messe near Tokyo.
