        Consoles are confirmed however localization probably too costly here just like J-Stars.

  • Göran Isacson

    As wacky as it is, I’m honestly kind of cool with this. Even if it is a bit hard to believe that Akira could fight some of these superpowered people, a little bit of glorifying can be fun at times, especially when it’s someone like Akira. Akira versus Touma is a fight I’d pay to see… though Akira versus Shizuo? Now THERE’S a fight that would actually be cool.

    • colorblindnightmare

      You would have to watch from a satelite feed because the blows theu would exchange would be earth shattering. Would be an epic fight tjo!

      • Göran Isacson

        I would be okay with watching from that satellite… unless I decided to see it in person, just so that I can be vaporized by the force and at least be able to say “I went out like a BOSS”.

  • Awesome! I think Akira is a weird choice of character, but he definitely fits the “whoa, this guy will quite definitely rip me a new one” feeling. His voice actor in the VF games is one of the reasons why I like his character so much too.

    I look forward to the cries of pain, and some black and blue waifus!!
    JUUNEN HAYAIN DAYO!!! – What he means is you need to be legal, girls >_>
    (I applaud anyone that actually gets what I’m saying here)

    *evacuates to le’ bomb shelter*

    • Don

      they be 10yrs early for this shiznit!

      • Legally speaking >_> Assuming Akira retired to be a pimp.
        Dengeki, the only place you get to see a fully grown man with years of growth and experience competitively beat down inexperienced elementary and highschoolers!! Wonderful ~

  • KingGunblader

    Seems like Virtua Fighter characters have been everywhere except a proper VF game lately. :(

    • Slayven19

      Well that’s because the last VF game is hard to top to be quite honest.

  • Yay Pai is there!

  • fairysun

    Seriously, how can those girls withstand full-blown like this from Akira Yuki?

    • KazukiNanbu

      maybe Akira only use half of his real strength when he is fighting

    • NTaiyokun


  • Roberto

    i hope to see more sega characters late

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ohh boy. Actually, i kinda like this lol. Imagine this is the first part of huge story where Dengeki characters is invading Sega’s game world and all of Sega character is the boss. We had chances to see more than just Akira here. Imagine fighting Miku?, Shining series chara? Golden Axe? Streets or Rage? Or even the recent famous rpg of course Selvaria Bles as boss will be great lol.^_^

  • AlaskanKactus

    Am I the only one that expects this game to not get localized?
    (I’m looking to import)

    • Slayven19

      Well why should anyone expect this to get localized is what you should be saying. No one I think expects it, but it’d be nice if they did. Of course I’m importing it anyway so I don’t really care to wait that long for an announcement.

    • icup ✔️

      Aquapazza was another game no one expected to get localized.

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    Can you use Akira to punch tsundere lolis in the face? Maybe this game should include Scorpion, Sub-Zero and fatalities.

  • KyoyaHibari

    I hope Akira owns most of those characters. We need some quality ones like a Baccano character already.

  • Chaos_Knight

    But will he be playable?

  • Saphiren

    Miria&Isaac WHEN!

  • colorblindnightmare

    Akira is the character I like most in vf. His sprite looks great too!
