Sega recently revealed that Akira from Virtual Fighter will be appearing in their light novel all-star fighter, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, but it doesn’t look like the crossovers will be ending any time soon, as they’ve also shared a glimpse at a Sonic stage, along with various alternate colors for the game’s fighters, via Dengeki Online.

  • Cephrien

    I’m still sour about Boogiepop only being a support character.

  • ryougazell

    Asuna’s third alternate looks like Leafa from SAO
    Shana’s 4th alternate looks like Taiga Aisaka from Toradora
    Kirino’s 3rd looks like Ayase from Oreimo

    Can’t identify alternates for Mikoto, Shizuo or Kuroyukihime though

    • Luke Blackwood

      Shizuo’s alt is Mikado, if I’m not mistaken. Or any student of their school, since hair color hasn’t changed to match Mikado’s.

      • ryougazell

        Ah, you are right. Must be Kida, though without his scarf

      • JustThisOne

        Actually, this is a little off topic, but I really like how they actually bothered to edit his palette so that it’s an actual suit. (There’s no extra line where the waistcoat ends near the arms.)

      • Akemi Homura

        Shizuo went to that school, too. His hair’s a little more muted in that costume, but it’s probably just high school Shizzy.

        • Luke Blackwood

          Yeah, it could be Shizuo in HS, but since most alt palletes are references to other characters from the same series, I thought it would make more sense for it to be Mikado or Kida since he would be referencing someone else. But High School Shizuo isn’t unlikely either.

    • Armane

      Kuroyukihime’s second alternate is probably based on the White King.

    • Kayseur

      Misaka’s 4th could be Mii Konori, even though the skirt doesn’t perfectly match.

    • Servant BerserCAR

      If I might add, Asuna’s 4th alternate greatly resembles Kyoko Sakura from Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

      • David García Abril

        Plus, her 2nd alternate seems to be the colors from her ALO avatar.

    • MSJ

      Mikoto alt 3 is almost definitely Konori Mii.

    • Croix Zapp

      Kuroyukihime 4 looks like beatrice from umineko?

  • David

    shizuo’s 4th palette looks awesome

  • Kaetsu

    Shizuo Heiwajima :D

  • Jesse

    I decided to look at the Dengeki Bunko page for other series that could be put in, either at a later date, or in a second game like this, and found some ones that’d be interesting:

    Growlanser(hey, Sega owns Atlus now, so you never know)
    Figure 17
    Kashimashi(Kirino got in, so why not)
    Kino’s Journey
    Persona 2

    It seems they ran Tales of Xillia in the magazine, too. They’d need to ask Namco first, of course.

    • TheExile285

      If they add someone from Growlanser, I want Eliza from Growlanser IV!

    • Anesia Hunter

      Kashimashi… *inputs correct button combonation and watches Hazumu start crying and Tomari appear out of nowhere, get angry and beat up the opponent before disappearing* “Instant K.O.?! O.O” Sounds too op, Jesse.

  • JustThisOne

    Huh, looks like Shizuo can’t escape the blonde, huh?

  • This game is gonna be amazeballs. :D

  • dynamic-zx

    I like the re-colors for Kirino and Shana, very clever. Especially Shana’s since they cover 3 heroines all shared by the same voice actor.

    • Wappuli

      3 heroines?
      First two colours look like the different school uniforms from Shakugan no Shana and the fourth is Taiga, but the one with purple clothes is some third Kugimiya-character? It doesn’t remind me of any.

      • dynamic-zx

        Louise from Zero No Tsukaima.

        • Wappuli

          Sorry, I seriously cant see how that could be a Louise-colour.

  • gangrelion

    I wonder how many sega characters will make their way into this game. Akira from Virtua Fighter was already confirmed in Dengeki online was the final boss, so I wonder if Sonic himself will be included and I remember the director saying something about wanting to add someone from valkyria chronicles too…

    • Demeanor


  • Roberto

    Gotta go fast

  • gangrelion

    It’s so weird to Asuna from SAO be the playable one, she should be a support for Kirito,since he had more fighting scenes than her and was much stronger (actually, even Leafa fought more than Asuna). This game is like a love comedy protagonist: so indecisive as to what it wants to be. If this is not a All-girls fighting game, they should just add the most adequade characters from each series.

  • Ren Yuumei


  • icecoffemix

    Whoa some of those palettes are actually quite well thought out, unlike some other fighter game.


    Kirino <3

  • MSJ

    wish they’d just announce more characters; uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh

  • Crevox

    French bread is making this, thus it will automatically be a good game

  • Göran Isacson

    Have to admit, seeing Mikasa with blonde hair just feels… weird. It’s like she’s gone all delinquent and dyed her hair. I do like the black and white mix in the upper right Mikasa pic, though.

    • MSJ

      since when was mikasa in this game??? last i heard shingeki has no chance, think you mean Mikoto.

  • Kaitsu

    I just realized that this is literally Waifus ft. Husbandu Too: The Game.

  • MrJechgo

    I guess I could accept that Sonic himself could be playable, as well as Akira Yuki who was previously announced. I mean, Sonic was in Sonic the Fighters, Sonic Battle and of course Super Smash Bros. So, if they play it smart, they could add Sonic with an updated moveset. Plus, well, it’s always awkward to get a stage WITHOUT a playable character to go with it.

    What I’m a little concern about is the lack of anime/manga characters so far, because, well… only six of them have been announced… when the “standard” number is 8, 10 or 12 (the higher, the better, of course).

    Speaking of the roster, 3 assists have been added WITHOUT a playable counterpart: Holo from “Spice & Wolf”, Sadao Maou from “The Devil Is a Part-Timer!” and Boogiepop from “Boogiepop and Others”, which prompt the question of what PCs could we get from these series.
    – Since they picked the main character from “The Devil Is a Part-Timer!”, the only other character that would be eligible would be Emi Yusa.
    – Since they picked again the main character from “Boogiepop and Others”, one other character that could work is Nagi Kirima the Fire Witch.
    – Since they picked… ok, you get the picture here. However, “Spice & Wolf” never got a warrior-like character, so what I’d like to see is Holo again, but in her wolf form. Hey, if we can get Amaterasu in MvC3, then I can’t see why couldn’t we get a wolf in another fighting game.

    As for the rest, well… Let’s see now:
    – Baccano!
    – Ballad of a Shinigami
    – Black Bullet
    – Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-Chan
    – Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere
    – Kino’s Journey
    – Kurogane Communication
    – Mahoka Koko no Rettosei
    – Ro-Kyu-Bu!
    – Starship Operators
    – Strike the Blood
    – Toradora!
    – Train+Train
    – Our Home’s Fox Deity
    That’s what I could find, because they have like over 200 series. It,s not like they could ever run out of material here.

  • BentoBlame

    Probably predictable but I’m glad that Shana has palette that has her black hair and summer uniform colors.
