Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax Has Ro-Kyu-Bu, Kino’s Journey, And Golden Time Characters In It

By Spencer . January 28, 2014 . 12:50am

Tomoka Dengeki PlayStation revealed more characters in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, a fighting game with a bunch of light novel characters and at least one Sega star. Tomoka Minato from Ro-Kyu-Bu! (pictured) is playable and Hinata Hakamada joins the game as a support character.


Koko Kaga from Golden Time, Kino from Kino’s Journey(!), Mashiro Shiina from The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, and Erio Towa from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko are also support characters. Really, Kino should have been playable. If Phoenix Wright can be a fighting game character surely Kino and her talking bike could work as a main character. Maybe being a markswoman made her too powerful.

    Wait what? WAT? Koko is in the game?


    • Daverost

      Shana looks to have a Taiga palette, so she might not be in. I’ll be mad with you.

    • Dragonslayer_023

      You figure she has to be there, right?

  • TrueDefault

    Kino!! Man, that was such a classic.

  • Haha, it isn’t often when we see Spencer fangasm in articles! She has an awesome bike, I’ll her that.
    I haven’t got around to Kino’s Journey, but I bought the DVD set that came with a mini license plate!

  • neocatzon

    Kino miss you so much.. T_T
    Finding your novels is really hard, mind you.

    • DyLaN

      Funny, I can almost always find chinese Kino Journey in a lot of Popular bookstore.

      • neocatzon

        It’s really hard to find LN in my country, Kinokuniya may have some with unbelievable premium price. No English though.. :< and bakatsuki version was not transliterated.

        • echokanon

          My country’s Kinokuniya doesnt have much Kino either… most of the them it was only animated LN sadly.

  • majestix1988

    fixing the game due “lack of moeness” on it

  • DyLaN

    I still need to check out/finish those titles mentioned ^_^;

    Can we have playable Himeragi Yukina with Akatsuki Kujou/Kirasaka Sayaka as support (or vice versa) next?

    • katzedan

      Himeragi would be amazing *-*

    • HerosLight

      I didn’t know StB was part of Dengeki.

      I hope one of them gets added then.

  • cyberkinghardy

    Normal girls fighting. I always see that scene here in the real world.

  • >Golden TIme
    >Buying 20 copies of this game confirmed.

    • DyLaN

      *20 copies of the arcade machine

      What? XD

      • >if it comes to consoles which I don’t know why it shouldn’t. (or was it confirmed otherwise?)

        happy? >_> =P lol

        • DyLaN

          Nothing been said abt console release yet. But it should get one later.

  • Caribbean Brony

    So much love for Koko.

    Best girl from Golden Time.

  • MitsukiIX

    i’ll be looking forward beating little girls up with shizuo.

  • Go2hell66

    Ro-Kyu-Bu, that one anime everyone wishes they never enjoyed but they did…

    • Marc Duarte

      Speak for yourself. I enjoyed both seasons of the anime a lot and am not ashamed to admit it one bit. Don’t see why that would even be considered a bad thing. If people don’t like my preferences, then they can go pound sand for all I care. I wasn’t put on this Earth to please them. In the end, it’s all fantasy so there’s nothing to get worked up about if certain people happen to like it. Those who have a problem with it obviously have way too much free time on their hands if they’re obsessing about what other people are doing in their free time. I pity such people.

  • katzedan

    I really need this now … Hina and Tomoka *—*
    Hope it comes to consoles one day! Will get this in the first day of pre-order! :3

  • Xerain

    As much as it pained me to do so, I passed on Aquapazza because I knew I wouldn’t play it much. I love 2D fighters as a concept, but I don’t enjoy real time competition, so I almost never get my money’s worth out of them.

    But this. This game. I have been following this game. I think I will make an exception for this game. It has like half the characters.

    Now we just need to wait for Dengeki Bunko VS Kodansha VS Kadokawa.

  • s07195

    Kino as support… orz.
    So swords are okay, but guns aren’t…. orz.

  • Kayseur

    Taiga better be playable. But I seriously don’t some of their choices. I’d rather have played with Erio rather than those Ro-Kyu-Bu! girls, and sure thing Kino would’ve fit way better as playable.

  • Sato


    • 永次




  • Göran Isacson

    No playable Kino? Well, I guess I can understand that. If her and Holo teamed up, the game would be over…

  • Josh A. Stevens

    How is the Golden Time support character NOT Ghost Banri messing things up?

  • ivanchu77

    oh geez, i think i actually care more for the support characters rather than the playable ones….

    Hopefully Taiga ends being playable

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    I like Ro-Kyu-Bu almost as much as Slam Dunk, but for different reasons.

  • Roberto

    I really hope we get a console version

  • KyoyaHibari

    All I want is a decent Baccano rep *cough Clare or Luck *cough and Dokuro and I guess I’ll be content with Kino being a support WHEN PERSONA 4 ARENA HAS NAOTO (who I main when I play, but I should probably play more often).

  • Renaldi Saputra

    what the.. character from romance anime in a fighting game…

    • DyLaN

      It shouldn’t be a surprise when you have characters like Kirino and Kuroneko in it.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        maybe I just didn’t get used into something like this.. I mean, it’s dengeki, well, I forgot that it’s Japan

  • Daverost

    …Playable Tomoka? I suppose I can’t complain, but that’s literally the last thing I expected.

  • Kino’s. Journey. In a video game.


    • s07195

      You should check out Dengeki Bunko RPG: Cross of Venus then. She’s actually a fully playable character.

  • The Supreme Kai of Time

    A Ro-Kyu-Bu character is playable? Seriously? And I still wonder why Maou is support.. On the other hand, glad to see Koko made it in, I love Golden Time. Still waiting for my 2 favourite Tsundere fighters, Ookami and Taiga. <3

    • Manny Being Manny

      Maou is support because hes not a cute girl.

      • The Supreme Kai of Time

        Shizuo Heiwajima is just the cutest girl right?

        • darkbartz

          Of course Shizu-chan is. Kanra would definitely agree with that!

  • Kasuga Yuki

    What??? Touwa Erio and Shiina Mashiro are support??? At least Mashiro can be playable….. Well this game has many of my favourite characters in anime. It would be nice if it comes to Vita.

  • MasterScrub

    I refuse to be satisfied with this game until I get a Strawberry Panic rep

  • HerosLight

    So glad Koko makes an appearance, I didn’t know it was part of Dengeki.

    If TADA BANRI was in this game, this would be his ultimate: gif

  • Theob Vious Choice

    Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax: Just when we hadn’t had any updates for a while, here; have an awesome loli, actually… make that two. Oh, but you also get a bunch of other great characters as support.

    Please come to PS3.

    • Edzo04

      im praying for vita myself

      • Theob Vious Choice

        I’d be happy for both, as long as it hits a Sony system I’m happy.

  • Eder García

    i was expecting a Ro-Kyu-Bu! game with NBA JAM style gameplay… oh well…
    Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko is part of Dengeki? didn’t knew that, also we need more testosterone French Bread

  • ミランダ マーク レスター

    sooo im gonna expect Yuusha Emilia, world destruction, and valkyria -____-

  • katzedan

    Dengeki Online updated their website with some ingame pictures of Tomoka

    I really need this! *-*
