Sony have announced that Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax will finally be making its way to North America and Europe. You can watch the announcement trailer above.
Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is a 2D fighting game that pits characters from Dengeki Bunko novels against each other in Sega-themed worlds. The game, developed by Ecole Software and French Bread and published by Sega, was released in Japan last year.
Over on the Playstation Blog, Stephen Akana of Sega explains the gameplay so:
Fighting Climax features a fighting system that is both easily understood and complex, thus catering to veterans and newcomers alike. Using weak, medium and strong attacks, each of the playable characters have move sets that are similar in execution, yet differ in attack range, power and speed.
Assist characters each have two moves that can either help you chain your combos or add a defensive strike, giving players a large range of flexibility in custom combo creation and play style. Speaking of characters, Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter and Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles join the battle as unlockable characters in Versus and Online multiplayer modes, along with their support character counterparts Pai Chan and Alicia Melchiott.
The Western release for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita has been given a Summer release window.
