Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax Heads To PS3 And Vita On November 13

By Sato . August 6, 2014 . 9:44pm


Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, the light novel all-star fighter featuring characters from various Dengeki Bunko series is headed to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Sega announced a release date, along with a new teaser trailer.


The video starts out with some action featuring Asuna from Sword Art Online, along with Accel World’s Kuroyukihime. You can also see those two going at it in our earlier report. Next up, they show Ro-Kyu-Bu!’s star heroine Tomoka Minato shining in action.


While many of the characters aren’t exactly considered brawlers, it’s quite a familiar territory for Durarara!!’s Shizuo Heiwajima. Misaka Mikoto from A Certain Scientific Railgun can also hold her own using her Electromaster powers. You can read more about them and the others, here.


Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax will be released in Japan for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on November 13.

  • Andy Abramo

    Didn’t know that Asuna used “mother rosario” in this game :o!

  • Kornelious

    Please PLEASE don’t let this suffer the same fate as J-Stars!…..Though it is Sega :(

    • Renaldi Saputra

      It’s SEGA and you know how SEGA is

      • Even without SEGA this seems tougher to license compared to a Shonen Jump fighter. At least half those series are with Viz.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          It really is

  • Tarkovsky


  • 오렌지

    Wish they made Mao into a Playable Character. If not, they could’ve added in Emi instead.

  • Might be my 1st import

  • PlatinumMad

    Who is doing the port? SEGA? The netcode will suck.

    • Byron Kerrison II

      Oh you…

      Innocent until proven guilty.

    • DragKudo

      Atlus could do it

      • Renaldi Saputra

        With those licensing issue?
        I doubt very much

  • Isuke-sama

    I wish they add Gunslinger Girl characters and Dokuro-chan, but seeing the current roster, I doubt they will make it. Even Kino is support.

    Gunslinger Girl chars would be nice to celebrate its ending, and to promote Aida’s new manga. Dokuro-chan to bring back Chiba Saeko. Hell, it’s been 3 years since she last started in an anime/game, even if it’s just a reprising role, it would be nice to see her back. Wonder what happen?

    • Wappuli

      She hasn’t had too many roles lately, that’s for sure, but she were in Minami-ke just last year.

      • Isuke-sama

        It’s a reprising role so it doesn’t count… much. She hasn’t been in any anime/game since. It’s a shame, she’s still in her early 30s.

    • Istillduno

      Except this isn’t an anime or manga crossover game but a book one, the series in it got adapted into anime but they still started out as books published by Dengeki first.

      • Isuke-sama

        Dokuro-chan and GG started out as manga, just because they are manga not light novel doesn’t mean that they can’t be added.

        • Istillduno

          Except it kind of does mean they can’t be added, neither Sega nor Dengeki own any rights to them.

          I love Gunslinger girl but;

          A) It doesn’t belong in this game (the title kind of gives this away just a little)

          B) Getting it into this game would require a whole new set of negotiations with possibly several companies and a whole lot more money changing hands to introduce characters from one series.

          This will be the same with Dokuro chan and any other anime which doesn’t origionate from a Dengeki published light novel.

          • Wappuli

            But Dokuro-chan is a light novel series from Dengeki.

  • Somerandomperson


    • Geebun

      I don’t think there is even 0.0000001% chance this is going to happen.

  • JuVu

    I just hope they could bring this game over to western countries, as well. I mean, didn’t we have all those Dengeki Bunko characters in ZHP for PSP? That deal flew, so why couldn’t this one, too?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      But there are no dengeki games that had got localized
      Just like there are no Jump Stars game had got localized

  • ShinNeoGranzon

    I prefer the song for the arcade version, though the song in this video is pretty good. Some of the combos in this video are pretty interesting, nice to see how supports can keep combos going. Hope they keep adding more characters, especially playable males. 9 playable females to 3 playable males is a bit much.

  • Chardo

    plz accelerator plz

  • Kelohmello

    Personally not too hyped for this. Still very much interested, and I’ll be getting this eventually, it’s just the gameplay feels very simple. And considering for whatever reason it costs more than Under Night In-Birth did…

  • 愛憎

    Maybe it was my opponent getting a perfect on me, or maybe it’s that Kino isn’t a fully playable character… or maybe it’s just that I don’t like Sword Art Online or any of the other series that are mainly represented, but I really didn’t like this game when I played it.

  • Demeanor

    Personally I’m excited for Kirito and Shana-chan.

  • ronin4life

    What was the full roster of playable characters again?

    All I remember from when it was announced was a bunch of bad choices that were obviously made solely on popularity of individual characters… would be nice to see a full list.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    I heard it’s available now in arcade machine in Japan
    My friend had just got played it

  • KuroNathan

    I guess this means that all the characters have been added in?

  • Can’t wait! Let’s hope there are more characters next to the ones we already know :)

  • Keiji Johnson

    Aw… I must be getting delusional because I thought was going to get localized after reading the headline. :(

  • Dark Zerato

    It’s a shame that Tatsuya is reduced to a support character. After watching recently episodes of Mahouka, he’s just insanely powerful.

    • ishyg

      I think that’s probably the reason.

    • Christopher C

      if Tatsuya was playable…. “OP Nerf him!”

  • Prinny Dood

    Wouldn’t it be cool if disgaea had a brawler like this dood!? I want this and super hero chronicle dood!

    • Bentan

      been waiting for it to happen for the last decade lol

      • Prinny Dood

        Than let’s ban together with the rest of fans dood! And bug the crap out of his to make this happen dood!

    • Linhua

      … I love you, Mister Prinny.

      • Prinny Dood

        Thanks dood!

    • Keko

      I’m STILL waiting for a Nep fighting game. We already have tons and tons of characters, so they only need to grab a decent studio to develop the game.

      Just imagine NISA’s powerful, flat specials. She could throw Prinnies as projectiles! *neps internally*

      • Prinny Dood

        I agree with everything you’ve said Sept the prinny throwing part dood!

  • HelloACiDDD

    Thank Golly my local store imports japanese games. Since there’s like 99% of this not getting localized. I’ll be getting this game. Maining Tomoka

    • ForteWily

      I am not so sure… I mean, it’s a game similar to Aquapazza… And that game got localized.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        This is SEGA
        Aquapazza isn’t SEGA and it’s dengeki series

  • anthony apduhan


    • Radit Raditz

      The song is “Belief” by Mami Kawada, and it’s not released yet (probably around the same time the game is released, which is around November).

  • GamerLegend

    Would consider importing if there are no DLC since I don’t have a japanese account.

  • Rawindra

    hoping for Akira playable in last arcade update, along with recently
    joined by Tecmo Koei for their co-op on DOA5, adding Hayabusa (assist:
    Momiji) (mid-boss along with Akira) & Orochi (assist: Kyubi no
    Kitsune) (final boss in last arcade update, takes Akira’s place from
    previous arcade version) before console release November

    • XiaomuArisu

      wait….do you mean that Ryu is in the game or that you would like it if he were?

      • Rawindra

        Wait for an announcement in some next months before November release

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Pretty annoyed Sword Art Online gets’ two reps just because it’s the most recent anime.
    But eh, I’m still getting it. Just gonna avoid those two forever.

    • Linkmstr

      The only reason I’m getting this game is because Shizuo and Kamijou Touma (Why is he not playable? Why?) is in it. That’s it. Oh and Maou Sadao in his demon form with wearing only his stretchable boxers… There’s still a lot of characters that I want to see playable but instead they’re reduced to being assists. =_=;

    • hawk222

      I thought it was because the two of them had different playstyles.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    All I have to say is Ro-Kyu-Bu! <3

    • Hound

      I’m loving the creativity behind her move-set. I was seriously thinking she’d play like Sean from Street Fighter 3 or something. This is much more fun.

      • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

        I love it too. The basketball moves and the bag swipe. They really capture the characters personalities and anime situations well. And of course…ending with that final shot of the team is priceless.

  • Yan Zhao

    Kinda lost hype for this game after seeing all these terrible decisions to make all WANTED characters assists and only making the female protagonist or co-protagonist playable.

  • TheBurningPunch

    I know the kino no tabi series the most and I wish kino was playable but since she mostly uses guns and knives and lacks hand to hand, being just an assist is best. She reminds me alot of persona’s naoto.

  • Aristides

    Come on Atlus, make this happen! lol

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    I’ve got a lot on my plate when it comes to fighters for the next year or so (UNIEL, P4U2, GGXrd), but might give this a go for a distraction if I work myself into a slump, since digitally importing these titles are relatively inexpensive.

  • Serephitus

    This can’t come fast enough!

  • axess707

    Still no playable Kamijou Touma and Accelerator. :(
    What? They’re both too hax than Kirito?

    • mike dickson

      good point Accelerator should of been in there

    • Shade DMessiah

      I swear even if Accelerator was like Terumi (Low teir, overused), I would dedicate all my time to making him the ultimate badass.

  • darkbartz

    Wait, wait, wait. Asuna’s using Mother’s Rosario? Nice. Rentarou getting beaten up by a bunch of lolis is also a great stinger, no loli harem for you Rentarou!

    • 0_0 Holy cow. Awesome. I hope they cover Mother’s Rosario on this season of the sao anime. Want to see that sword skill animated.

  • jade
